Rules for Accessorizing Your Wedding Gown

Yes, the wedding gown is the star of the event. However, the right jewelry could add personality and elevate your look. But, there can be a lot of choices to make between veils, shoes, and over shoulder necklace. Just continue reading if you don’t know how to choose the best for your dress.

Metal Matching

You might not know this, but some jewelry looks a lot better with specific gown colors. This is the general rule. Choose jewelry in platinum or silver or with pearl detailing for a pure white dress. For ivory colored gown, it is much better if you pair it with gold. You can choose between pearls, silver, rose gold, or yellow gold if you have a diamond-white gown. Let the gown dictate the jewelry color if it is already embroidered with beadwork. For instance, pick an earrings, bracelet, or necklace with a silver base if your dress has silver beading.

Keep in Mind – Less is more

You do not need a sash, necklace, earrings, tiara, and a veil. Jewelry adds an original touch to your look. However, having lots of them can be over the top, especially if your gown is already embellished. Take an inventory of the standout features of your dress first before you start purchasing. You can base your decisions around them. Choose a drop earring pair rather than a necklace if your gown has an ornate neckline. Try a fascinator or a bold statement necklace if your dress has a simple design. Take a hint from your hairstyle when it comes to your earrings. Small drops or studs will do if you are leaving your hair down. On the other hand, you may want a pair of chandelier danglers if you have an updo. It is always a great idea to not choose designs that mimic closely your dress’s embellishments.
