Things to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Jewellery

Jewellery pieces may just be tiny details in a wedding but they are important and should be paid attention to. Unfortunately, they are sometimes overlooked in the wedding preparation. However, when not chosen carefully, however tiny they are, they can ruin the whole look of the couple.

Good pieces of wedding jewellery enhance the facial features as well as the overall look of the bride and groom. Here are some things you should consider when choosing jewellery for your big day.

For brides:

Your jewellery should complement your wedding gown and should highlight your facial features well. In general, it’s always best to wear classic, timeless pieces. Moreover, don’t go overboard by wearing many pieces of jewellery all at the same time. Remember, less is more.

Headpieces

Your hair accessory or headpiece should accentuate the veil. If you choose your hair down, choose headbands with a classic design. Don’t select a thick one as it will look chunky and less formal looking. If you put your hair up, choose hair combs that will complement your hairstyle. Better yet, you and your hairstylist can plan your look ahead of time so you can be guided on what type of headpiece to buy.

Earrings

Your earrings should be simple if you have a heavily embellished dress. Avoid heavy earrings as much as possible, even if you choose to let your hair down. The safest option is to go for a simple stud pair.

However, you can still express your personality on your wedding day by going for a nontraditional approach of wearing a stud earring with an interesting design, such as a unique unique jewellery by Muru, instead of the conventional pearl or diamond earrings. If you’re feeling dainty, a pair of drop earrings will work, too.

Necklace

Your choice of necklace depends on the neckline of your wedding gown. If you have a low neckline such as a tube, V-cut, off shoulder, or sweetheart neckline, you can go big on your necklace. You can choose a matinee, opera, or rope type of necklace as these are long, ranging from 20 to 36 inches in total length.

For more conservative necklines such as a scoop, cowl, asymmetrical, high neck, or halter neckline, your necklace should be kept simple. Short necklace types such as a choker, collar, and princess will work well with these necklines, since they are relatively short, ranging from 12 to 16 inches in total length.

Bracelets

Although a bracelet is a less common wedding jewellery piece, the primary consideration when choosing one is that it should go well with your other accessories. Usually, a wedding bracelet is an heirloom jewellery or symbolizes something that the bride wants to wear on her special day.

Don’t go for chunky cuff bracelets. Instead, choose simple chain bracelets with minimal details.

Engagement ring and wedding rings

The best tip is that the rest of your wedding jewellery should match well with the engagement ring and the wedding ring you’ll be wearing during the ceremony. Choose a wedding ring with the same band color as your engagement ring.

Aside from those mentioned above, here are some other considerations when choosing a piece of jewellery:

• Don’t go overboard on wearing accessories on your big day.

• Although it’s okay to mix and match pieces, make sure that everything is well coordinated. You can also choose to wear a set instead.

• It’s best to stick on rhinestones and diamonds. Some wedding culture prohibits wearing of pearls during the wedding day. It doesn’t hurt to follow some wedding myths.

• Stick to one kind of metal base for all your jewellery. Don’t mix gold and silver pieces.

For grooms:

Grooms require fewer things during their wedding day. But if your groom wants to accessorize a bit, here are some considerations when choosing:

Watches

A timeless piece is always a perfect choice for grooms. Whether you prefer a leather or metal watch, choose a simple and elegant design. For a metal watch, silver works best with a cool-toned tie such as blue and green. On the other hand, a gold watch will go well with warm colors such as a wine or mustard tie.

Cufflinks

Your cufflinks may just be small details of the suit but they can enhance your overall appearance on your big day. Metal cufflinks are the simplest and most common type. However, you can also choose a different material such as glass or have one customized with a unique design to suit your personality and style.

You can also have the cufflinks personalized with your initials or some details of your wedding such as your wedding date.

Your wedding jewellery is one of the minor things you have to think of as a part of your wedding preparations. However, you should not neglect this small detail because it can greatly create a negative impact on your wedding look when your jewellery pieces don’t go well together. Choosing the right jewellery for your wedding day, believe it or not, will help in making your big day a memorable one.
