Stick to the style
Just as you would when decorating a house, stick to the same kind of style throughout for a cohesive look. For example, if you have a vintage style dress, modern jewellery may not work as well as something from the same classic era.
Simple and sleek dresses often look best with similarly simple jewellery, such as a pair of stylish pearl drop earrings, and playful gowns with a touch of colour can be acccessorised with bright gemstones too.
Leave something in the jewellery box
On your wedding day, you’ll have the choice of wearing earrings, a necklace, bracelets, rings and a veil.
With so many stunning pieces that mean so much to you, it will be tough to leave something behind. However, there’s such a thing as too many jewels (it’s hard to admit that!), so either keep all of them quite simple, or leave one or two in the jewellery box to allow the others to shine.
Do you usually wear your beloved charm bracelet? You don’t have to take it off just because it’s your wedding day. Conversely, if you don’t usually wear much in the way of jewellery, you don’t have to pile on the gems for the same reason.
Use your normal style as a base and go from there, rather than completely changing everything. You’ll feel more comfortable wearing the same kind of jewels and accessories as you usually do.
Think of your hair as an accessory
It’s not your usual accessory that you can pick up in the store, but it will still work with your outfit to make you look and feel wonderful.
For example, big curls may suit a sleek dress best, while an elegant up do will show off those glamorous chandelier earrings. Talk to your hairdresser about how he or she can style your locks to suit both your face shape and your overall outfit choice, so it all works together perfectly.
