How To Use Jewellery To Wow Them On Your Wedding Day
You want to stand out on your wedding day and the best way to do that is to be different and unpredictable. That doesn't mean you have to ditch tradition, but you can play with conventions and go your own way. Here's a few examples of how you can ensure you'll be even more unforgettable on your big day.
Cream-coloured pearls are the classic jewellery items worn with wedding dresses and modern pearl necklaces and earrings can come in a a variety of designs which mix the soft sheen of a pearl with a more interesting style in a rose gold or a sterling silver setting.
Rose gold is a fashionable colour and creates a new and vibrant contrast to a white pearl. Rose gold also has a much warmer feel than yellow gold and complements skin tones beautifully.
Swarovski crystals come in all shapes, sizes and shades to add a flash of colour which can complement a bridal bouquet, the bridesmaids' dresses or even the bridegroom's tie or waistcoat. Use a toning colour colour to create a focal point, for example a dark purple against a light purple dress for bridesmaids dresses.
Then it's time to decide on dress necklines for necklace length and style. A high neckline can get away with a longer necklace which will sit over the top of the dress or a lower neckline can have a short necklace - 40cm sits around the collar bones and 45cm is a timeless length which sits between the collar bones and mid chest.
Last, but not least, is bridal head wear and the style of earrings that are to be worn.
Do you want long drops or delicate stud earrings and what suits your face shape? If an ornate tiara, floral headband or veil is to be worn then it's important to make sure the earrings won't get caught or end up looking too 'busy'. But if you are going for a simple, upswept hairstyle then dramatic long earrings can look fantastic but keep the necklace really simple or have a bold bracelet instead and do away with any jewellery around the neck.
