There are many things to consider when curating the perfect bridal look for not only the bride but bridesmaids, flower girls, and family, and we are here to help you along the way. Here are ten fabulous tips to start you on your way to creating a perfect bridal look.
1: Match Metals
Wedding dresses come in a wide variety of colours and shades. Therefore, it is essential to select the correct colour metal to best compliment the dress. Here are our Metal Tips.
If a dress is White or Silver, shine with bright metals like Rhodium-plated sterling silver to give you the look of platinum or white gold.
Champagne or Ivory
If a dress is Champagne or ivory, glow with yellow gold. This will highlight the creamy colours in the gown.
Pink or Blush
If a dress is pink or blush or has pink hues, choose to sparkle with rose gold wedding jewellery for the most romantic feel.
2: Necklines and Necklaces
Necklaces look best with an open neckline. There is no need for a necklace with a high neckline or embellishment around the bodice. However, a necklace is essential for V necklines and strapless dresses.
If you are wearing a V neckline, a pendant is a great choice.
For a strapless dress, choose a choker or shorter statement necklace.
If your dress has a low back, consider a necklace with a simple backdrop to add that little bit of extra detail.
3: Less is More
A Tiara, Veil, Necklace, Earrings, beading and a puppy bouquet are not all required! Sometimes less is more. If your dress is ornate, consider a pair of drop earrings or a tennis bracelet. If your gown is simple, a beautiful necklace and earring set might be a perfect choice. Pick the pieces that complement your dress rather than compete with it.
4: What is your hairstyle?
Make sure you have your hair appointment and decide on your style before you select your jewellery. This is a crucial step as it is essential to make the right choice, your hairdresser will be able to offer you some great tips. Your hairstyle also needs to work with the neckline of your dress.
If your hair is down, stud earrings are a perfect choice, no tangles!
If you have an up-do, a pair of drop earrings will add that extra sparkle and shine.
5: Pearls are always a great choice!
Timeless and classic pearls will never go out of style. Drops, studs or a simple pearl bracelet is something you will always treasure.
6: Something Blue
The saying is "Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, a Silver Sixpence in Her Shoe," which first appeared in print in 1883. The sixpence is probably well gone, but why not blue accessories! Channel your Princess Dianna and go for a beautiful sapphire look.
7: Wear it Again
Unlike the wedding dress you might only ever bring out again for a fancy dress party, you can wear your jewellery again. Pick pieces that you love. Beware of the weight of your earrings on the day. You will have them in all day so opt for pieces not too heavy.
8: Wear your engagement ring on your right hand during the ceremony.
For ease during the ceremony, wear your engagement ring on your right hand. Then, after your I Do's, it is easy to change hands, and you will avoid any mishaps of trying to get your ring on and off your finger.
It is customary to give your Bridesmaids a gift, and the jewellery they wear at the bridal party is always a great choice. GEORGINI has options in Gold, Rose Gold and Silver, so there is something for everyone!
10: Love is always on trend
True love never goes out of style, and neither do beautiful hearts. GEORGINI has a gorgeous selection of luxurious hearts perfect for all your bridal parties. So when love is in the air, why not carry a little bit of it wherever you go.
