How To Choose Your Wedding Jewellery
Congratulations—you’ve done it!
You found The One. (Not your soul mate — your wedding dress.) Now, it’s time to accessorise. While selecting your wedding jewellery can seem just as daunting, it doesn’t have to be.
“Jewellery and accessories make a dress belong to the bride,” says bridal stylist Lauren. “They really give it that personal touch.”
This means, of course, that you don’t need to entirely reinvent the wheel when it comes to completing your ensemble. Trust your instincts, pick what you like, and follow a few of Hartman’s best style tips, and you’ll have a wedding day look you’ll remember fondly for years to come.
Find your comfort zone.
While it might not be every day that you wear a wedding dress, chances are you’re a bit more familiar with jewellery. You know what works and what you feel most confident in, so let that be a baseline for your wedding look. “If you never wear earrings, let’s not use your wedding day as the first time you bring out a statement earring,” explains Hartman.
Don’t worry about perfectly matching your rings.
Your engagement ring and wedding band are meant to be worn every day of your marriage, so they should already reflect the personal style you’ll want to emulate in the rest of your wedding jewellery.
That said, things don’t have to perfectly match. (Having an emerald-cut engagement ring, for example, doesn’t mean you have to wear emerald-cut diamond earrings.) Metals don’t have to perfectly match, either.
“If your engagement ring is platinum, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring gold into your wedding day look,” says Hartman.
“Just be intentional in your choices.”
Build-in sentimental pieces from the beginning.
While jewellery is a great way to work in “something borrowed,” the last thing you want is for Nana’s pearls or your favourite aunt’s bangles to feel like an after-thought. If there’s a particular piece you know you’ll want to wear, Hartman suggests bringing it along while dress shopping—that way there’s no risk of it not matching.
Prioritize personal style over Pinterest trends.
The wedding world is certainly not immune to trends, and there’s no shame in embracing the ones that truly speak to you. (In fact, that’s half the fun!) That said, don’t chase a look that doesn’t feel right for you just because it’s all-over social media. “Trends are going to come and go, but your wedding photos last forever,” says Hartman.
