Teardrop, chandelier, statement, stud…have you chosen your wedding day earrings yet?
Dresses, shoes, make-up, hair styling, rings…there are so many elements of your wedding day look to think about. But have you thought about your earrings?
Planning your bridal outfit is one of our brides’ most enjoyable parts of the big day preparation, so we’re always excited to be sharing our suggestions and ideas to bring your wedding day style together. So this week, The Beauty Bible is all about the earrings!
When choosing your earrings, there are a few things that you need to think about to make sure that they frame your face and set your style perfectly in place. Fortunately, we’re here to help you with The Beauty Bible’s guide to choosing the earrings that are perfect for you on your wedding day.
Let us take you through a couple of things to think about:
The Neckline of your Dress
Sweetheart neckline? Strapless dress with detailing? Why not choose statement earrings? Stunning, chandelier styles will hang beautifully, framing your look without overpowering your dress shape. V-Shape neckline? How about choosing some elegant earrings with a matching pendant necklace to create that classic, glamour?
The Colour of your Dress
Even though the majority of brides choose white, there are different shades and hues to your wedding dress that each suit a different colour of jewellery. Gold can sometimes clash with pure white, so try a pair of pearl stud earrings or platinum jewels. However, if your gown is ivory, you may find that timeless gold earrings bring out the slight yellow within the dress for a beautifully colour-matched look. If you’re wearing a stunning sari, you may have a host of beautiful colours to choose from. Why not colour-match to your dress, or pick out gold or silver in the gown and select earrings to complement?
The Style of your Dress
Have you chosen a modern dress, with simple, clean and classic lines? If so, you may find statement earrings overwhelm your look. Keep your style cohesive; why not choose clear, sparkling crystals or timeless, teardrop earrings? They’ll off-set your classic style beautifully. If you’ve chosen a vintage, lace gown, then perhaps you might feel you’d like to be a bit more adventurous and choose your earrings to match. Look for a statement pair with ornate detailing and crystals that will help bring your overall look together.
The type of headpiece you’re wearing
Have you chosen a beautiful headpiece for your big day? If so, make sure that you bring it with you when selecting your wedding day earrings. You want to pick the earrings that complement the headpiece, not those that work in competition with it and overwhelm your look. You may find that simple studs look best, or perhaps you may forgo the earrings altogether? Less is sometimes more!
As always, each and every one of our brides and grooms is unique, and your wedding day look and style should be as individual as you are. Choose the earrings that best suit your style and personality, and be ready for your moment in the spotlight!
