There’s so much more than the ring when it comes to accessorizing on your big day. From earrings to cuffs, your options are endless! This may add to the already overwhelming planning that needs to be done before you’re officially a Mrs. Here’s a few tips on how to really make your dress shine!
The Do’s for Hues
First things first—the color of your wedding dress is key on deciding whether you’re going to adorn yourself in Pearls or Gold. Stick to silvers, pearls, or platinum accessories if your dress is pure white. For an off-white, or diamond white, shade you can take just about any direction. Silver, gold, and even rose gold work great here! When it comes to the Ivory shade, stick to gold, as it tends to bring out the creamy undertones of this rich white color. If you want to stray from the traditional shade of gold, try rose or yellow gold for a fun twist.
Also, if your dress has added designs or details on it such as silver or pearl beading, it’s highly recommended to match your jewelry to that as well. For example, if your dress is off-white with silver floral designs beaded into it, stick to silver for your accessories.
Sweetheart: If your dress features a sweetheart neckline, I would feature a very simple necklace or no necklace at all and go for bold earrings. Chandelier or drop down earrings work well here.
Strapless: For a strapless dress, eye-catching or layered necklaces work well as it adds flair to this classic wedding dress style! Even pearls work well here. The modest neckline gives you room to play up the accessories! But remember not to over do it—if your necklace is a statement piece, choose simple studs for your earrings.
One-Shoulder: Since this asymmetrical gown already has a busy neckline, accessorize this dress with a nice pair of earrings and a bracelet. A cuff bracelet or cluster earrings would add just the right amount of sparkle to this in-season style!
V-Neck: The empty space caused by the V-Neck is practically begging you to accessorize! Simple necklaces, like a multi-stone pendant necklace, works great here as it decorates the space with beauty and elegance.
Halter: For the halter dress, I would pair a beautifully bold bracelet with a simple pair of drop down earrings. Try art-deco style accessories for some vintage glitz!
Bateau: This classic style works great with necklaces that sit right below the neckline. Necklaces featuring gems work great here, as the sheer look of the necklace will compliment this covered look nicely.
Whether you decide to go with the options above or take your own spin on it, the most important thing about accessorizing for your big day is that you feel comfortable and gorgeous! Stay true to yourself while accessorizing, and you are bound to shine brighter than any diamond.
