The Perfect Jewels – How to Pick Wedding Jewellery to Match Your Wedding Gown


Many brides find it difficult to find the perfect accessories to go with their wedding gown so we’ve got a few helpful tips to ensure your jewellery suits and won’t over do your wedding dress.

 1/ What jewellery goes with lace? If you’re wearing a dress covered with lace then pearls are great! Pearls give that soft touch that goes with the delicateness of the lace. A small pearl necklace or even just a pair of pearl earrings will give you a soft and romantic look.

 2/ Combs and headpieces are great for any bride, they bring focus to your face and they look beautiful! Tiaras are amazing on any bride that wants to be a princess, while floral headpieces looks great with matching bouquet flowers!

 3/ Bracelets, cuffs or bangles are a perfect accompaniment to any sleeveless wedding dress.

 4/ For strapless dresses, short necklaces or chokers are fantastic. Short strands of crystals or pearls look elegant or for brides who prefer not to wear a necklace a pair of chandelier earrings will beautifully complement a bare neckline.

 5/ Pendants or chokers give that elegant touch to v-neck gowns. A necklace with a large diamond or a coloured stone pendant is a nice addition. You can also mix it up with a doubled strand of pearls.

 6/ It’s best not to mix a necklace with an off the shoulder dress – a pair of chandelier or drop earrings will be enough to lift your look without overdoing it.

7/ For halter neck wedding gowns, drop earrings suit best and for a bigger statement bust out a headband or headpiece. Add some bling with bangles or a jewel encrusted bracelet.

8/ High neck dresses don’t require a necklace; bangles, stud earrings and hair accessories will create a sophisticated look.

 10/ Big, bold statement jewellery is for those brides who wish to add a splash of colour or create a dramatic effect for their wedding look. The colour of the necklace should match the colour of your wedding theme or bouquet.
