Complete your dream bridal look with beautiful jewellery that complements your style, thanks to these top tips from Milina London…
When it comes to your wedding day, you want everything to be perfect. Each individual aspect requires careful consideration, from the table decorations to the food and, most importantly, your bridal dress and jewellery.
While the dress might be seen as the “main event”, it’s important that you choose accessories which complement it and make your entire outfit look striking. With that in mind, the Milina London team have put together some steps for finding jewellery which perfectly matches your chosen bridal gown.
Decide on your dress style
It’s good to have an idea about the style of your dress before you start choosing jewellery to complement it. The style of jewellery you prefer might also have an impact on the dress you select.
As a general rule, we would say that a simple dress can be worn with more striking jewellery and a dress with lots of lace or embellishments can be worn with simpler pieces. It’s all about balance and finding what works best for you.
Consider custom jewellery
Many brides-to-be may have an idea or image of the jewellery they want for their dress, and this can be hard to find. You might stumble across pieces that are similar but don’t quite meet the expectations you had built for yourself.
If this sounds like an issue you might have, it may be an idea to consider custom-made jewellery. By commissioning a bespoke piece, you can collaborate directly with the designer to create jewellery that meets your requirements.
Think about the dress colour
Certain metals match best with different colours and this is something to carefully consider when you are choosing your bridal jewellery. For example, silver works best with cooler tones such as bright white, whereas gold works better with slightly warmer tones, such as cream, pink and champagne.
Find jewellery you are comfortable with
Although your wedding might seem like the best time to go “all out”, it’s also very important that you feel comfortable and happy within yourself. We would recommend sticking to the types of jewellery you are comfortable with – for example, if you’re never seen without your earrings in, you should make sure to find a special wedding pair.
Your wedding day will be a very busy and exciting one and so it is also crucial that your jewellery is comfortable and does not tire you out. Make sure, for example, that your earrings are lightweight and have a comfortable fastening.
Remember that it’s all about balance
With all jewellery, and especially wedding jewellery, you need to carefully balance the pieces with your outfit to create a cohesive look. For example, if you have a plunging neckline, you might consider a pendant necklace which will carefully rest on your decolletage. If you have a floor length gown, you might consider a delicate bracelet or bangle to draw the eye down the length of your dress.
