While finding the perfect dress to wear on your wedding is important, what you accessorize it with is just as crucial. In fact, shopping for bridal jewelry can feel just as overwhelming as buying a dress. As the old saying goes, the devil’s in the details, and the wrong accessories can totally alter your look.
You can never go wrong with classics such as stud diamond earrings or a pearl necklace and if you are planning a rather traditional celebration, those may be the best choice for you. But if you’re going in a different direction with your wedding theme, your outfit—and that includes your accessories—should reflect that.
Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color—a beautiful pair of earrings or a bracelet that features a colored gemstone such as an emerald or an aquamarine could look so chic especially if you’re getting hitched by the ocean.
For those going down memory lane and opting for a vintage-inspired wedding, consider an antique piece of jewelry that can also count as your “something old.” Now check out some gorgeous jewelry options for any type of bride.
