MATCHING JEWELRY TO YOUR GOWN STYLE
Every girl dreams of how beautiful they will look on their wedding day their entire life. Adding that final touch of jewelry completes your bridal look, coordinating everything together. There are a few items to consider when selecting your bridal jewelry.
The first item to consider when selecting your bridal jewelry is the style of gown you are wearing. You need to consider the neckline style. This is important because your necklace will accent your gown beautifully if selected by the style of the gown you are wearing. If you are wearing a backless gown and your hair up, a great style necklace would be a lariat or back dangle necklace. These necklaces have longer strands that dangle elegantly down the back for that extra sparkle. A plunging neckline calls for a great y drop style necklace or a multi layered necklace accenting perfectly. A strapless gown works well with single strand, multiple strand and choker style necklace.
The second factor to consider when selecting your jewelry is the color of your dress. There is a difference between white and ivory and if your gown is ivory you need to consider ivory over white for pearl selections. If your gown has crystal and rhinestone embellishments, then selecting bridal jewelry with those same materials is the perfect way to get a finished and congruent look.
When the wedding is over and you are packing away your gown for maybe your future daughter or just for safe keeping, don’t pack away your jewelry. Many brides are opting to wear their bridal jewelry again after the wedding. This is the perfect way to keep those memories close and alive in your memory. A great accessory piece like bridal jewelry is the perfect addition to any jewelry collection and should be worn again and again.
