Getting married is a momentous event in anyone’s life. Weddings, although exciting, require a lot of planning and decision making. There is also the need to pay for expenses like catering, the wedding dress, bands, and the wedding cake, to name a few.
For women, there’s a lot more planning involved. Wedding dress shopping is one thing, and completing the look is another. Shoes are a vital component of the overall look, and you’ll need to add the right accessories and bridal jewellery to complement the dress. Jewellery shopping is often overlooked and if you need help, below are some tips worth keeping in mind:
- It will all depend on the hairstyle
Brides have different tastes when it comes to accessories and hairstyles. There are women who prefer their hair pulled back during the wedding, while there are also some brides who choose to let their hair down during the big day. Regardless of how you want your hair styled, you need to consider the statement you want to make. Pearl drop earrings will look good with wavy hair, while studs will make an up-do more elegant.
- The colour should match the wedding dress
The colour of your gown will matter if you want to wear earrings or jewellery with pearls or rhinestones in it. The tones should be in the same colour family, and the earrings and necklace should match your gold or silver wedding ring. If you want to make it easy, the general rule of thumb is that silver and platinum will go well with classic white gowns. Gold, on the other hand, will match champagne and ivory wedding dresses. While rose gold will match gowns with accents of rose gold.
- The neckline matters
The neckline will determine the style of earrings and necklace that will go well with your dress. Wedding gowns come in different designs and styles and, again, this will depend on the bride’s taste and preference. Strapless gowns often go well with long earrings, while a plunging neckline will give you the chance to keep it simple with studs or small earrings so that the neckline will get all the attention. High necklines, on the other hand, will look good with a pair of statement stud earrings.
Besides the tips above, what also matters is choosing a pair of earrings and accessories that reflect your style. On your big day, you want to wear a wedding gown and jewellery that show your style and personality. You don’t have to go over the top, but you also don’t have to worry about wearing more accessories than you usually do on normal days.
Your wedding day is a momentous life event and you want everything to run smoothly and without problems. Planning should start as early as ten to twelve months before the big day. Three months before the wedding date, make sure that you’ve already finalised your gown and the accessories by then.
