What to Pay Attention To?
Jewelry should be bought when the wedding dress is ready. So, even if the dress, shoes, gloves, and veil are already there, the look is incomplete without jewelry. What accessories are suitable for wedding dress and hairstyle?
It is important to take all the details into account: eye color, skin tone, body type, the style of the dress, and even the shoes.
A short and fragile girl should not wear massive jewelry with large stones. She should pay attention to fine products such as small earrings, light tiaras, and thin chains.
A taller woman can wear more massive jewelry with stones of saturated colors. Although, she’s got to know when enough is enough. It will be enough to wear two large pieces of jewelry and one smaller accessory.
On brunettes, accessories with light stones would look great. On dark skin, they will shine especially brightly.
Delicate blondes look great wearing elegant jewelry with transparent stones matching their eye color.
Brides should not forget that a luxurious dress requires modest jewelry such as earrings, necklace, and tiara. If the dress is simple, without many decorations, bright accessories would be perfect.
Draw attention to the facial features. If they are small, the bride should in no case wear large products with bright stones. They will distract people from her face completely.
Brilliant accessories in the bride's hair are always welcome. Therefore, tiaras and headbands with rhinestones are suitable for any outfit and hairstyle. They fix the veil perfectly.
When choosing a tiara, take into account the face shape of the girl. Tiara and hairpins should be chosen according to the bride’s taste of the bride.
The cutout in the shape of a heart can look great with a necklace of almost any shape. With an asymmetrical cut no pendants, necklaces, or beads should not be worn. The dress with straps will look nice with an accessory with small details. A dress with straps around the neck will look good with an elongated two-layer necklace.
If you follow the traditions, it is a good idea to only wear one accessory on your hands, which is the wedding ring. But on the wrist, you can wear a light bracelet. Massive jewelry is not for weddings. But a delicate chainrings with necklace and earrings is what you need. Of course, if the outfit is not finished with gloves.
Earrings are right next to the face of the bride so they should be chosen carefully and in accordance with the face shape and the hairstyle. Of course, they should match other accessories in materials, colors, and design.
