Second Wedding? Here’s the Jewelry Guide for the Wedding Party


The Ultimate Jewelry Guide For The Entire Bridal Party

Dresses and color schemes are usually the centre of plans for your big day – looking perfect is on the mind of every bride and that usually extends to everyone and anyone who might appear in a wedding photograph. The finishing touches make all the difference to any look so the right wedding jewelry is a must.

What Wedding Jewelry

 

The Bride

It goes without saying that the bride will be wearing an engagement ring, though this is generally swapped to the right hand for the ceremony so the wedding ring can be easily slipped into place Perfect Match jewelry avoids this necessity with rings that are designed to site perfectly together, but usually a single ring on the right ring finger is the only jewelry a bride will wear on her hands until the end of the ceremony.

The key to bridal jewelry is balance; if you are wearing an elaborate tiara then keep earrings and necklace simple and elegant. If your headpiece is plain or your hair accessories minimalist, you can afford to make more of a statement with your other jewelry – just make sure that it does not take focus away from your dress or your face.

Adult Bridesmaids

Bridesmaid jewelry is typically very understated. Summer weddings in particular do not lend themselves to heavy jewelry and if you want your bridesmaids to match it is a good idea to keep to something classic and elegant that will suit everyone’s style. However, as your bridesmaids will generally be wearing matching dresses, going as far as matching jewelry can be a step too far. Allowing your bridesmaids to choose their own jewelry can allow them a little individuality and let their personalities shine through.

Child Bridesmaids

Keep children’s jewelry very simple and buy pieces specifically designed for children. Avoid rings and bracelets that they might be tempted to fidget with during the ceremony or take off and lose. A delicate silver necklace is perfect, or to give little girls a real kick, a diamante ‘princess’ tiara to go with their bridesmaid dress is perfect, particularly if you are wearing one yourself.

The Men

If the men in your bridal party are wearing dress shirts and cravats, it is important to consider cufflinks and tie pins. If the groom, best man and ushers do not work in formal dress office jobs, it is likely that any cufflinks they own were ‘comedy’ gifts and not necessarily something that you want in your wedding pictures. Consider a gift of cufflinks or tie pin as a thank you for their assistance with guests and organization  – that way you can control their jewelry choices and ensure that everything fits with the color scheme and theme of your wedding.

Overall, jewelry is a personal thing, but it is your day and coordinating the small details can make all the difference.
