How to Coordinate Jewelry with Your Wedding Dress

How to Coordinate Jewelry with Your Wedding Dress

Introduction

Wedding is indeed a blissful affair. As the day approaches closer, and your excitement and anxiety runs through the roof, you find yourself wondering, is everything perfect? Am I ready for the next big step? Have all the preparations for the special day been made? 

While it can be tough to figure out questions about your life, one thing I can help you with is guiding you on how you can coordinate your jewelry and piercings with your wedding dress. Let’s take a look!

Consider The Neckline Of Your Dress

You’ve spent quite a few months picking out the most beautiful wedding dress for your big day. Everything about it screams you, your personality, and what makes you happy. So, your jewelry needs to do the same. 

So, if you’re planning to wear a nice necklace, be it a heirloom, or one that you picked, here’s a guide that will help you coordinate your neck piece with the neckline of your dress:

Short V Neckline

Pick a choker or a decorative collar necklace to bring attention to the shape of your dress.

Long V Neckline

Choose a pendant with a longer chain. Ideally it should be long enough to form a small V, matching the shape of the dress neckline.

Crew Neckline

Pick a statement piece with lots of work, or go subtle with a simple pendant resting on top of the dress. It all comes down to how you piece other elements together.

High Neckline

Multi stone pendants pair well with high necklines. If there is heavy embroidery on the neckline of the dress, keep the jewelry to a minimal. If it’s plain, you can stack multiple stones or add more than one layer of jewelry.

Square Neckline

Collar necklaces pair well with square necklines, but so do pendant pieces that cover  exactly the 2/3rds of the space. The key here is to leave some space between the jewelry and the dress.

Sweetheart Neckline

Sweetheart necklines leave a lot of room for jewelry. You can play around with stacking 3-4 different length necklaces here. For a rather unique look, you can pair necklaces of varying lengths together.

Don’t Forget The Sleeves

Depending on the venue of your wedding, whether it’s the enchanting summer wedding in the City of Angels, Los Angeles or the beautiful winter wedding venue of Colorado, the length and design of sleeves of your wedding dress may vary. So, here is a rundown of what you can or can’t pair with the different sleeve styles:

  • For a dress with no sleeves, or thin straps, you can wear chunky bracelets, and add more than a few rings on your hand. It will add some gravitas to your overall look.
  • For dresses with half sleeves or 3/4th sleeves, use simple and more elegant pieces, like a pearl or diamond bracelet with fine details. Wearing just your one big wedding ring, whether it’s a solitaire or a diamond will help the look be more cohesive.

Create A Contrast With The Ear Rings

Depending on the look that you’re trying to create, the best way to make your wedding dress shine is through earrings more than anything else. Whether you have any piercings that you want to showcase on your wedding day, or you want to wear some traditional jewelry to the ceremony, creating a contrast between your wedding dress and your ear pieces can help your look pop.

For instance, if your wedding dress is simple and elegant, wearing big earpieces like chandelier earrings, or big tear drop shaped earrings will balance out your look, and make you look sharp.

On the other hand, if your wedding attire has a lot of work and embroidery on it, you’ll be better off with smaller and more delicate ear pieces, like classic studs, small hoops, or diamond shaped diamond earrings. Pick jewelry that compliments your look.

Match The Colors Of The Dress And Jewelry

Based on the type of shade of white that your wedding dress has, whether it’s sparkling like a shade of white or ivory, you should always wear jewelry that has hues of silver, and platinum in it. If you want to go conventional and pick a wedding dress with multiple colors that have deep hues, then gold and rose gold will look better and add to your look.

It’s important to embrace your natural skin color. If you have a warm skin tone, gold will look way better on you than other metals, as it will match perfectly with your warm tone. Alternatively, having a cool skin tone will help you look great in jewelry that is made of silver, platinum,or diamonds.

Coordinate Hair Accessories With Your Jewelry

Jewelry isn’t just about the body anymore. If you’re a to-be-bride who wants to look like a princess on your special day, adding unique jewelry pieces to your wedding day hairstyle can help you look radiant.

For a simple updo, or braid, you can add a pearl or diamond hair accessory to your hair. From dainty clips and hair clutchers, to large pieces of jewelry that cover your hair, you can add a lot of creativity to your hair style.

Even if you want to keep your hair down and let them flow, a gorgeous piece of bow adorned with different types of stones will look great. And last but not least, for a real princess look, get a tiara!

It’s A Wrap

The day of your wedding can be filled with uncertainties, but what you can be sure of as you walk down the aisle, is that you look dazzling. And, that can only be possible with a perfect coordination between your wedding dress and jewelry. This was just a quick guide to cover some basic steps that you can take to ensure that your wedding day look is flawless.

Apart from keeping a balance between what should match, and where adding a contrast between the dress and jewelry will be a better option, it’s important to remember that a beautiful smile, and a body language that is confident will add real gravitas to your overall look. Don’t forget to keep the day fun. Afterall, It’s a day full of love and celebration with your forever person.
