The Importance of Bridal Jewelry
When people think of weddings, the first item that pops to mind is usually the dress. Brides search endlessly for just the right wedding dress. However, another important factor is bridal jewelry. The right dress needs the proper accessories, and jewelry can help feature the beauty of the dress as well as be a centerpiece of beauty itself.
Why is jewelry important?
An engagement starts with a ring, the most important piece of jewelry purchased for the wedding. Wedding rings are meant to be worn forever, and pictures are taken of the bride and groom’s hands to feature the rings. Other jewelry should complement the rings and bring attention to the beauty of the bride.
The right jewelry pulls an ensemble together, and the wrong jewelry causes it to look mismatched. Jewelry creates a feel and aura about the bride, whether the look she is going for is glamorous or simple. Without proper jewelry, the wedding gown will look incomplete.
What kind of bridal jewelry is there?
There are plenty of options for wedding jewelry. Necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are the perfect way to start. Chokers and delicate, jeweled watches are also great options for the bride. For men, besides their wedding ring, watches are an appropriate accessory for the wedding.
How do I know what to choose?
Choosing the right jewelry from all of the possibilities can be difficult. Jewelry should not overwhelm the dress; rather it should highlight the beauty of it. Here are a few things to remember when picking wedding jewelry:
• Wear what is normal for you. Don’t pick jewelry that you aren’t comfortable wearing or that is completely out of character with your usual style. The wedding day is a special day, but it is also a time to feel comfortable in your own skin. Stick to styles that make you feel dressed up but still you.
• Watch your colors. Gold goes better with some colors and silver or platinum with others. Make sure all the jewelry you choose accentuates the color of you dress instead of clashing with it.
• Try on many different styles. There are many different pieces of jewelry that can work for each dress, so try on different styles before making a final decision. Just like with a wedding gown, you should know that in the end you’ve looked at all the options for jewelry and walked away with the best possible choices.
Jewelry is an important way to finish your wedding day look, so make sure you choose the look that is right for you.
