How to Decide What Jewelry to Wear on Your Wedding Day

Every bride wants to look perfect on the day of her wedding. After selecting the perfect dress and shoes, it is time to focus your attention on picking the perfect jewelry for the day. Noe’s Jewelry is here to help you decide what you should wear with your dress on your big deal.

1. Don’t Go Overboard

It is easy to over accessorize on your wedding day. While it is a very special day, you want to feel comfortable and look natural. Too much jewelry will make you stand out in a way that you don’t want to stand out on your wedding day. Consider your normal style when deciding on what you need for your wedding day. If you don’t generally wear much jewelry, stick to one or two items for the big day.

2. Match the Metal to the Dress

It can be hard to decide whether you want gold or silver jewelry on your wedding day. If you already have an idea in mind, go with it. If not, you may want to let the color of your dress decide the color of your jewelry. Silver or platinum pieces tend to look better with white dresses. Gold tends to look better with ivory and champagne styles. Rose gold is a great option for those women with blush dresses.

3. Consider Your Hairstyle

How you wear your hair on your wedding day can help influence the type of jewelry you want to wear. If you are wearing your hair down, statement earrings may not work the best for you. For down hairstyles, consider a statement necklace with stud earrings or extra long earrings if you don’t want to sport a necklace, but want your jewelry to show through. For up-dos, statement earrings are a great option. You may want to avoid pairing them with a statement necklace, however.

Don’t forget that you can also put a little glitz in your hair. Headbands and hair clips are both ways to add a little bling to your hair, but you won’t want to overdo it if you are wearing a veil or other headpiece.

4. Pick Jewelry According to Your Dress’s Neckline

If you really don’t know what jewelry to pick for your wedding day, find something that works with your dress’s neckline. Sweetheart and other strapless necklines look great with shorter necklaces or chokers. You may even want to skip a necklace all together and just opt for statement earrings and some kind of hairpiece. V-neck dresses are perfect for chokers or pendants. For a unique look, layer both together. You can also pick any kind of earring with a V-neck dress. Halter dresses tend to look best when paired with hair accessories instead of traditional jewelry. Try a birdcage veil or hairpins or flowers.

5. Do What Makes You Happy

The real key to picking wedding jewelry is to find whatever makes you happy. You can follow all kinds of rules and still regret your jewelry choices on your wedding day, so just find items that make you happy and wear them on your big day. Whatever makes you feel confident will make you look your best.
