When you’re planning your wedding, jewellery and accessories are often the last thing you’ll choose. But’s it’s really worth putting some thought in to what jewellery you’ll be wearing on your wedding day.
Make sure you love it!
The most important thing is, do you love it and feel great in it? It’s your wedding after all! It’s also much more sustainable (for the environment as well as your finances) to buy something that you will want to wear again after your wedding day – it might even become a special family heirloom one day.
Match your metal with your outfit
Silver and platinum jewellery goes really well with a pure white dress, and if you’re wearing cream or ivory then yellow gold or gold vermeil will complement the warm tones of your dress or suit. Blush tones look pretty and romantic with rose gold or rose gold gold vermeil.
Gemstones and Pearls
Pearls are a popular and traditional choice with brides and can suit so many different styles. This sautoir-length necklace, also available in silver and gold vermeil, features tiny seed pearls and can be worn doubled, or long.
A longer length necklace is a great choice with a silk shirt or a simple shift dress. It would also work so well with a vintage 1920’s drop-waist dress. After your wedding you can wear it with a plain tee or cosy sweater.
Pearl earrings will bring out the glow in your skin and look super flattering in photographs. If you’re wearing a dress with a high neckline or an elaborate necklace, try some little stud earrings. Long cascade drop earrings are wonderfully romantic – keep it simple and pair them with a small pendant, or keep your neckline jewelly free and wear a simple bracelet.
The colour blue is a sign of purity and fidelity and your jewellery is the perfect way to wear your ‘something blue’.
These sapphire drop earrings would look gorgeous with a messy up-do.
