There are so many things you need to do to plan your wedding day. With all the excitement, don’t forget about your accessories! Choosing your wedding jewellery is what will make your wedding day look completely you, and fully complete!

So, how do you go about choosing the perfect wedding jewellery to adorn yourself with as you walk down the aisle?

1. Choose what you feel comfortable wearing
Women that never wear bracelets shouldn’t be trying them out for their wedding day look. Think about what makes you feel most comfortable, perhaps earrings or necklaces, and work from that. Something bespoke from an independent jeweller is a great way of making sure your look on the day is truly unique.

2. No need to match those rings
Just because your engagement ring is emerald cut doesn’t mean all your jewellery must be the same. Metals don’t need to be a perfect match either. Again, it’s all about going with what makes you feel confident and gorgeous on your special day.

3. Work around sentimental pieces
Heirloom pieces are great for adding a sentimental touch, but if you have one of those, it’s best to start with it first and then add other things to your look. This is exactly where hand-crafted jewellery can come in because it can be designed to complement those treasured borrowed pieces from your loved ones.

4. Go with your personal style over anything else
Whether it’s those glitzy Instagram or Pinterest trends or your own mother trying to influence, always remember you come first. It’s nice to get ideas from these sources, but if they don’t work for you, don’t force them!

5. Necklaces should match the neckline
If you want to have a necklace created for the occasion, that’s a brilliant idea. Just remember that it should follow the neckline of your dress. In general, pendants are best with V-neck dresses while chokers and other items bode best with sweetheart or strapless necklines. Above all, your necklace should rest upon your skin for the best look on your wedding day.

6. Don’t forget about the reception
So many brides focus on the jewellery they wear with their wedding dress that they never even consider switching it up for the reception. In fact, it’s a great way to change the mood of your look without fully changing ensembles. Take off the veil and show off your newly designed earrings. Let loose by removing your gown topper and show off a hand-made bracelet from an independent jewellery designer. There are so many ways to shimmer and shine with a variety of pieces that will complete that special wedding day look you’ve been dreaming about!
