Ladies, it’s tempting to believe that your wedding style is about the dress and the dress alone. Yes, a flowing gown plays a significant role in any bride’s big day. But, for those of you who want to look perfect, there’s one word: accessories. The right pieces will transform a bride from an average Joe to a beautiful princess and have done on many occasions.
There is a hitch, though, and it isn’t you and the hubby saying your vows. The glitch is that wedding jewelry is different from any other and women can make mistakes. Because you want the day to go swimmingly, you need to take a peek at the following advice.
Don’t Overdo It
Again, it’s easy to get lost in the occasion and think that anything goes. It doesn’t, and you should let yourself get sucked in. Brides look stunning on their wedding day because they keep it simple. Rather than throw on a tiara and a pearl necklace, most women pick elegant earrings and a plunging necklace. Not only do they look the part, but they match the occasion perfectly. A good tip is to remember that less is more. Accessories should offset the dress, not drown it with tackiness.
But Do Splash Out
On the flip side, don’t wear the same pieces that you don when you are on the high street. Costume jewelry has its pros, but it is for a casual outfit on a Wednesday afternoon. It’s not for one of the biggest days of your life. With this in mind, don’t be afraid to buy new pieces that are solely for the occasion. In fact, don’t worry about the cost. There is only one time you will get to wear diamonds without seeming entitled and overly rich and this is time. Of course, there is a happy medium between nice jewelry and going overboard.
Nothing looks and feels better than an accessory with sentimental value. Not only is it elegant and beautiful, but it also adds to the occasion. A brooch from a relative or a name necklace or engraved locket will add the cherry on top of the icing. Simply because it has value means wearing it will feel ten times better than a generic, store brand item. Also, hand-me-downs and engraved jewelry are original as they aren’t available in any store. It’s your big day, which means everything should have a meaning.
Lots of people will tell you that you have to wear this and that because it’s a wedding. Don’t listen! Quite simply, you should wear what you want because this is an event for you and your partner. Therefore, always choose things which suit your style and are a reflection of your personality. If you don’t like wearing focal jewelry, opt for something smaller. If petite and elegant isn’t your thing, upgrade to something bigger. As long as you are happy, that is all that matters.
Hopefully, your big day will go to plan and you’ll be the belle of the ball.
