Let’s face it, everyone dreams of looking perfect on their wedding day. You get thrilled during wedding dress shoppings, but you will feel elated when you get to choose striking jewelry to match with it. Ladies, don’t get too ahead of yourself. Below is a guide to help you properly mix and match jewelry with your dress.

Match Metals to Your Dress

For bride-to-be’s with a white gown shade, avoid wearing gold embellishments for they conflict with the bright white color. Instead, wear classic pearls or platinum jewelry to balance your look. As for those with a diamond-white gown, accessorize it with rose gold, pearl, gold or silver accessories. Meanwhile, future brides who choose an ivory gown may match it with gold jewelry as it perfectly complements the soft white and yellow undertones.

Match Metals to Your Décolletage

Ladies, if you have a strapless gown or if it has a sweetheart neckline, forget about wearing a necklace. Accessorize it with clear crystal chandelier earrings or your birthstone. You can even choose a shade from your bridal bouquet to match it. If you want to add a sweeter and more organic feel to your ensemble, decorate your hair with silk or fresh flowers. You can also pair the dress with the ’20s inspired feather barrettes or an Art Deco-style bracelet.

Meanwhile, a knot note gown offers that classic appeal, so you can match it with any modern looking jewelry. When it comes to a V-neck gown, go for chokers, pendants or pearls that exude vintage elegance. On the other hand, a halter gown begs for hair accessories. It doesn’t matter if you want a loose ponytail, sleek bun or voluminous curls on your big day. Dress up your locks by adding some elaborate crystal hairpins.

The number one rule when wearing wedding jewelry is to not overdo it. Know how to balance your accessories to become a sophisticated bride.
