wpengine January 5, 2018

While everyone will be looking at your dress on the big day, they’ll also be looking at your stunning accessories! When looking for the right wedding jewelry, you should think about your dress, hairstyle, and your personal style. Take a look at our blog for tips on choosing your wedding jewelry, and head to our jewelry resource page to find your perfect pieces!

Dress Style

The style of your dress plays a huge role in your jewelry decision making. The neckline is one of the most important aspects to consider, especially when choosing your necklace. If you’re wearing a strapless or sweetheart style wedding dress, you’re in luck- anything goes well with it! Whether you prefer something delicate or a statement necklace, it will pair beautifully with your dress.

If your wedding dress has thick straps or a high neckline, statement necklaces can look too clunky and overpower the dress. Choose a small pendant necklace, or no necklace at all and focus on gorgeous earrings instead!

Dress Color

We know the majority of wedding dresses are white, but there is a wide range of what is considered a “white” dress. While dresses can be a stark, pure white, others are more of a cream or warm ivory color. For stark white gowns, silver jewelry pairs best with the dress. As for ivory or cream dresses, choose gold jewelry to accentuate the warm tones. If your dress has beading or accessories already on it, match your jewelry to the beading to tie the whole look together.


Your hairstyle is also a huge factor when choosing your jewelry, so you should have your style in mind before purchasing your earrings and necklace. If you’re thinking of wearing an up-do, a pair of statement or drop earrings will show off beautifully. Down-dos can also work with drop earrings, but make sure they are long enough to shine through your hair and be seen.

The Bride

While these are some good guidelines to keep in mind, the most important part of choosing jewelry for your wedding day is wearing something you love that makes you feel beautiful and confident! It’s easy to get carried away with trends and your friend’s opinions, but remember to stay true to your personal style and only choose items that make you happy.
