There are thousands of things to consider when it comes to planning a wedding; the dress; the venue; and guests are just three colossal aspects to think about, meaning that your wedding accessories may be the last thing on your mind in the run up to the big day. However, once you’ve finally fallen in love with the perfect dress, you’ll want to source the perfect jewellery pieces to truly set the gown off – but where do you begin? Below, Terence Lett have offered a couple of tips and tricks to help you efficiently select your wonderful wedding accessories and decide on the look you wish to emulate on the day.
Don’t overdo it!
As a bride, all attention will be fixed on you and your gorgeous bridal dress – the last thing you’ll want to do it pile on the wedding jewellery, detracting from the simple elegance of your gown. WhoWhatWear has an excellent and helpful guide to help you best compliment your jewellery to your gown neckline. Coloured jewellery, although not often thought about when it comes to wedding jewellery, can look great with a number of unconventional dress styles.
Trends vs classic
Abiding by current jewellery trends may seem tempting, but consider how well the pieces will hold up over time. Do you want your children to be thumbing through your wedding album and laughing at your jewellery choice in years to come? Opting for ageless choices such as pearls or sparkling diamonds will stand the test of time and ensure you a wedding day look that will be embodied for years to come.
Consider borrowing pieces
As the age old saying goes, your wedding outfit isn’t complete without ‘something borrowed’ within your arsenal. Why not rummage through your mum or grandmother’s jewellery box (with permission, of course)? Wearing a delicate bracelet or ring owned by a loved one is a delightful way to incorporate a sentimental ‘something borrowed’ into your look on your big day.
Your wedding accessories don’t have to stay stashed within your jewellery draw for the rest of time, only seeing the light of day when conducting an annual clear out. If you choose pieces that are versatile and timeless, you can easily wear your wedding accessories with a myriad of outfits and make the most out of your initial wedding budget.
No matter which wedding accessories you choose for your big day, it is important that you feel comfortable, elegant, and happy. If you’re concerned about a particular piece in the run-up to the big day, such as the heaviness of your chosen earrings or the sizing of your freshly purchased bracelet, wearing them for a day and giving them a trial run is a good indication of whether the pieces will work for the wedding day itself.
