Now that you’re done picking out the wedding gown that makes you look and feel like the most beautiful bride on earth, it’s time to move on to the next task: your bridal jewellery. Choosing your wedding day accessories is a little extra task that could make or break your look, so paying attention to detail is essential. Remember: you’ll look back on your wedding photos decades from now, so you want to look classy and stunning simultaneously.
But how can you possibly choose the perfect embezzlements for your big day? You could get lost in a sea of drop earrings, studs, and maybe even pearls for your earrings. But, on the other hand, you might be unsure about wearing grandma’s statement necklace, a delicate piece, or nothing at all.
To help you out, here are the most important factors to consider when choosing your jewellery as you tie the knot.
Tips On Choosing Your Bridal Jewellery
Always Put Comfort First
As a bride, you should feel comfortable in your attire throughout the entire event. With this in mind, you must find your comfort zone and build up on it.
Although it might not be your daily routine to wear a dress, there’s a big chance that you know which accessories you love. You already know what works for you and makes you feel the most confident, so let it be the baseline of your bridal pieces. Please take note of these pieces and turn them up a notch!
For example, finding a more formal design would be a great option if you always wear studded earrings. Or, if you can’t leave the house without bracelets, you may opt to layer two (or three) glitzier bracelets on your wedding day.
You might also consider wearing pearls for a more sophisticated look. This pearl bridal jewellery piece is stunning and classic at the same time – plus, you can customise your own pair as the dainty freshwater pearls, like all our charms, are detachable, allowing the wearer to express their individual style.

Something Blue, Old, Borrowed, And New
One of the most important traditions of a wedding is having something blue and new, so you should take advantage of this saying by adding a pop of colour to your attire. For example, going for a designer wedding jewellery piece would be a great idea. Consider this topaz necklace – it has a stunning yet toned-down blue shade that isn’t overwhelming. It’s the perfect piece for brides who want some colour without going way too overboard with their accessories!

On the other hand, did you know that you can also use one item and consider it as something old and borrowed? Plus, it doesn’t always have to be jewellery – it can be your grandma’s veil, your mom’s shoes, or even a shawl to keep you warm.
Choose Pieces You Can Wear Again
Although it’s fun to scroll on Pinterest for hours to find the perfect inspiration, it might do more harm than good. First, it would help if you didn’t focus on “fitting in” with the trend because it won’t be considered “trendy” in 10 years. With this in mind, it’s important not to go for a look that doesn’t feel right for you only because everyone is doing it.
So when choosing your bridal jewellery, you should always prioritize your personal style. By doing this, you’ll have the chance to wear your wedding jewellery again in the future without worrying if they’re “too much” for specific occasions.
Going easy with this simple and easy-to-wear pair would be a great option.
Pearl jewellery will give you a radiant look on your wedding day without losing its wear-ability for the years to come. And who knows, you may even pass it on to your daughter for her wedding day!

Consider Your Gown’s Neckline
If you’re planning to wear a necklace, the general rule is to choose one that follows the neckline of your bridal gown. For example, V-necks are best paired with pendants, while a sweetheart wedding dress would look phenomenal with this elegant necklace from Freya Rose.

And remember, no matter what neckline your dress has, it’s vital that your necklace sits on the skin, not on the dress.
Use Your Gown’s Fabric As A Guide
It can be challenging to find the perfect metal for your bridal accessories. But as a rule of thumb, it’s vital to match accessories with the embellishments on your bridal gown. In addition, you may consider the beading, fabric, and overall flow to determine which metals and stones look best.
For a white dress, your best options are platinum and silver because they complement the colour. On the other hand, gowns with ivory tones are best paired with gold pieces. But if you’re looking for a piece that’ll work with whatever texture and colour your gown is, this stunning mother of pearl jewellery drop earrings will be an excellent choice for a dramatic flair.

Plus, you shouldn’t forget about your hands! Coordinating your wedding ring with your gown’s fabric will tie your entire look together.
Your bridal look won’t be complete without jewellery pieces to tie the entire outfit together. When picking the pieces for your big day, you should do so with utmost care. So, although it’s a crucial process, it’s also an exciting part of planning the wedding. With this in mind, it would be better to enjoy the process instead of stressing over it. And don’t worry because by considering the list in this guide, you’ll surely find the right pieces to make you look and feel good on your special day.
