With the big day looming, every day starts to count that much more when it comes to organising your wedding outfit. Deciding on which gown to purchase is a large enough task in itself but when it comes to accesorising with bridal jewellery well that can be just as much fun! If the task of finding that perfect piece doesn t fill you with joy, then there is no need to worry as the job isn t as much of a chore as you think it will be! With a little bit of effort you will be surprised at how enjoyable shopping for wedding jewellery can be.
Make sure that you go looking in the usual retail outlets as well as picking some of the more obscure ones too. Bridal stores will carry the most commonly seen pieces of jewellery, however if you re still not satisfied then try to track down some stores which specialise in supplying antique or vintage bridal jewellery. It s always worth looking on websites such as EBay and Amazon on the off chance you will be able to pick up a bargain.
It should go without saying that whatever piece of jewellery you choose it should complement the rest of your outfit. You will find that white gowns will look best when paired with silver, pearl or platinum whereas ivory wedding gowns look best with gold or pearl.
You should also take the neckline of your wedding gown into consideration. If your gown has a V neck then you may want to look for a delicate chain or pendant. Make sure that you match with suitable earrings for a more timeless look. If you have a strapless gown then a set of chandelier earrings could complement this nicely. Wedding gowns with a halter neckline will always be tricky, however a stylish solution could be to wear your hair up and opt for some crystal hairpins in order to add a touch of sparkle. The addition of a necklace is entirely up to you.
If you are in any doubt at all as to what sort of bridal jewellery to pick then a safe bet is to side with pearls. These will offer you a timeless look and will go with most necklines. They are sure to add an heir of sophistication to any wedding outfit.
If you are a bride on a budget then it is understandable if you are looking for every opportunity to save a little money. A useful suggestion could be to look round some high street bridal retailers until you find a piece of jewellery which you particularly like. You could then spend time looking online until you find a specialist online supplier who will be able to offer your required piece at the lowest price.
The most important thing to remember is that you should let your personal taste shine through. If you are more used to wearing simple, conservative clothes then glitzy wedding earrings and jewellery may not be for you. Above all else, choose wedding jewellery which makes you feel special. For a more sentimental touch, borrow your mother s diamond studs for a look which will mean something to you.
