Why do shop assistants appear to insist on sparkling tiaras, glittering ear rings and shimmering bracelets as soon as you’ve found the dress of your dreams? It’s your wedding and you should wear whatever jewellery you want.
Wedding Dress First!
First choose your wedding dress and consider carefully the overall look. (Naturally we are going to suggest you come to us first as our Wedding Dress collection is amazing and you won’t find such a large range of fantastic wedding dresses at £49-£399 anywhere else – check out our website www.bridalbasement.co.uk )
When you have your Wedding Dress, have a look at Wedding Dress photos on line or in the Bridal Dress magazines so you get an idea of the look you are going for. Pinterest is a great new concept on the web where you can see loads of wedding dress photos and wedding ideas – have a look at our Pinterest site to start you off – http://pinterest.com/copplestones/
Think about how jewellery such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings will complement the bridal gown. For example, if you’ve got a V neckline, you should consider a stylish pendant. Select the focal piece and then complement it. Headpieces such as tiaras and veils should then add to the look.
Ultimately you know what looks good on you – trust your judgement and feel beautiful!
• Don’t buy in a panic – you can often end up with pieces you don’t feel happy with.
• Don’t go over the top – less is often more and the wedding dress is the star of the show
• Keep to a budget – there’s enough costs already without adding to them unnecessarily
• If your wedding dress is dramatic, pick understated accessories which don’t clutter your look
• If your dress is more simple, consider more shimmer from your jewellery
We’ve all been to lots of weddings and there is no wrong way when it comes to wedding dress jewellery. There may be a lovely piece in your jewellery box or something your grandmother wore just perfect for the day. Accessories should add to wedding dress, but above all, they should reflect your personality.
