Matching your jewellery to your wedding dress
Posted on July 29th, 2019
There is so much to think about when it comes to organising your wedding and here at Drakes, Plymouth we want to try and help make your big day plans run smoothly. In this week’s blog we wanted to share with you how different jewellery can suit different dress styles.
With an array of different dress styles and so many different jewellery options available, this easy to read, simple guide will help you pick the perfect jewellery to match the style of your beautiful wedding dress. Below we share with you some of the most popular wedding dress neckline styles, and the types of jewellery we think would sit perfectly with them.
The Sweetheart neckline is one of the most popular wedding dress styles. This cut of dress matches perfectly with almost every type of jewellery and gives you the freedom of choice when it comes to picking your jewellery. Our only tip would be not to go too overboard. Pick a combination of jewellery like a necklace and earrings or necklace and a bracelet. We love these matching sets from Swarovski and think they will sit perfectly with a sweetheart neckline. Straight across and off the asymmetric would also look beautiful with any of these pieces.
For a Queen Anne neckline, we would recommend a pair of dainty stud earrings and a simple bracelet, we love these from Nomination. An illusion neckline dress would also sit perfectly with these pieces of jewellery.
Next up we have one-shoulder dresses. For this style of dress, Drakes would recommend long earrings, no necklace and a bracelet. We think the Swarovski Emily Bracelet would look stunning and would add a bit of sparkle to your dress. High neck dresses would also look lovely with some beautiful stud earrings and a sparkling bracelet.
If your wedding dress is a halter neck style, here at Drakes we would recommend a mid-length necklace with some simple earrings and a beautiful bracelet.
For square or bateau necklines, a choker style necklace paired with stud earrings and a bracelet would match beautifully with your dress. The choker style necklace will work perfectly with both necklines, adding a bit of sparkle.
Lastly, we have a scoop neck and a V-neck wedding dress. Long necklaces going into the scoop/v we think look stunning and really add something to the dress. Pair this with some simple earrings and a bracelet and you’ve got a beautiful bridal look!
These are only our suggestions so of course pick jewellery you feel comfortable wearing and something that you love and think sits with your dress. The lovely and knowledgeable Drakes team are always on hand to help you pick the perfect bridal jewellery that you’ve always dreamed of.
