You've said 'Yes', the dress is picked out and the date set. Tick, tick, tick. However, brides often stumble when it comes to picking out their bridal jewellery for the big day. It can feel a bit overwhelming with a lot of factors to consider - the veil, dress neckline, hair do, colour scheme... here are our top tips to finding your perfect wedding jewellery.
While 'bridal jewellery' is traditionally classic and minimal, anything goes. Our first and top tip is to choose something that is 'you' rather than because it fits your theme. Also pick something that you will love and wear again.
It's often useful to have any earrings chosen before you meet with your hairdresser so you can see how they look with your final 'do.
Whatever your style, make sure there is a common theme between all your wedding jewellery so it looks considered - be it gemstone colour, metal or design.
Be guided by your dress - if you have elaborate beading or detailing on your dress, perhaps consider paring back your jewellery - or if your dress is a classic silhouette, a statement earring could look stunning.
You don't need it all! A veil, tiara, earrings, bracelet, necklace - that's without the dress and flowers! Pick one or two pieces that you love.
Here are our top picks for every bridal style...
These gorgeous rose gold, geometric earrings and necklace set from London based contemporary jewellery brand, Osylia, will flatter any skin tone and twinkle beautifully come dusk.
