6 tips for accessorizing your wedding dress with the perfect jewellery
Your big day is a time you will cherish and remember forever. Making it absolutely perfect comes down to thinking of every single detail. From the colour palette of the bridal party, to your dress design, the cake design, your wedding breakfast, and even your jewellery. Let’s look at 6 tips to help you accessorize your wedding dress with the perfect jewellery.
Use neutral pieces to your advantage: Neutral pieces are great because they can be layered and let your statement pieces really shine. Handmade gemstone jewellery is especially great for this because there are various neutral gemstones like rose quartz, peach or rainbow moonstone, and pink sapphire that complement different skin tones, dress styles and importantly, are stunning and elegant. Plus, neutral pieces can be recycled for other occasions, like dinner parties and celebrations. There are many different styles and pieces to choose from, to complement your dress.
Use fashion as a reference, but in a way that speaks to you and makes sense: You don’t want to choose a piece that isn’t really you. You won’t feel right wearing it, and you may regret choosing it for your special day. Handmade gemstone jewellery is a great choice as they’re unique and one-of-a-kind. You can’t find them in just any jewellery shop on the high street, and they truly add value and elegance to your special day, no matter what the time of year.
Understand the piece you’re wearing: Are you wearing a traditional wedding dress, or a two-piece number with a skirt and matching top? Is your dress detailed and elaborate, or simple & elegant? All of these factors will help you choose the pieces that complement you and your dress.
You don’t have to buy a matching set: It can be tempting to match your earrings, necklace, and bracelets. But, pieces can clash or look overdone, even with a similar colour palette. If you want to wear a statement necklace, you don’t necessarily have to wear matching earrings.
Avoid mixing metals: Wearing an array of different metals can clash and become distracting. You want to highlight your wedding dress after all, not have your handmade wedding jewellery become a distraction. Pick a metal you love, that matches your skin-tone and be consistent.
Include one statement piece: It can be tricky, especially if there are so many breathtaking choices, but just choose the one piece that speaks to you, highlights your dress and complements your wedding colours, and above all, you, the bride. You want a piece that makes you feel beautiful and really draws in the eye.
