On your wedding day, you'll want to look your absolute best...but most brides think that this simply entails finding the perfect wedding gown. What they often forget is the huge impact that bridal jewelry has on their entire look. Add a bold statement piece or a classic heirloom or vintage piece to your bridal ensemble and you'll be turning heads all night!
Necklaces: Many brides who choose embellished dresses with beading and other eye-catching accents will often wear a simple necklace with a small charm or locket hanging from it.
Those with plain dresses can opt for a bolder style with pearls or diamonds that will add some sparkle to their outfit!
Earrings: There are many options when it comes to bridal earrings, however this also depends on the dress that the bride is wearing. For dress styles that have sleeves or embellished straps, simple diamond or pearl studs will look beautiful. This is especially true if the bride is wearing a bold necklace...large earrings would be too overpowering in this case. For strapless styles, dangling earrings will be best, especially if the bride's hair is off the shoulders, in an up-do. A style like this would work perfectly:
Hair Pieces: There are so many options when it comes to bridal hair pieces, from clean and modern, to classic and elegant, or bold and vintage. If you've already decided to wear an eye-catching necklace or earrings, choose simple hair pins, like these:
