Amongst the chaos and excitement that comes with organising a wedding, it’s not uncommon for small details to get missed. It is estimated that on average a bride will spend 3 months picking out her wedding dress. With so much time and effort going into the dress itself, brides often save little thought for other accessories. Whilst your dress is likely to be the major feature of the wedding, the right jewellery can really make the entire outfit perfect. Here are a few simple tips from Marlow’s Diamonds for finding beautiful wedding accessories for your special day.

Necklace

If you are searching for the ideal necklace to suit your wedding dress, it is best to firstly consider the neckline. The style of your dress, be it a V-neck, a sweetheart neck or strapless, will all influence finding the perfect necklace to suit your dress. A strapless gown is an incredibly popular choice as it compliments a wide variety of body types. This gown style is often best accented by choosing a necklace that hits the collarbone. If you have a particularly simple and plain dress, you shouldn’t be afraid to choose a necklace that is bold and bulky to catch the eye of your guests. For a V-neck style, a long pendant style is often recommended. A long to medium chain length with a stunning diamond pendant will make a beautiful statement. A highly stylised dress may be best accessorised with a simple, choker-style necklace that won’t distract from the dress detail.

Earrings

When it comes to your earrings, you should try to balance them with whatever necklace you choose. More often than not, brides will opt for a simple yet stunning diamond stud. This will give the sparkle you want without looking too over-kill when accompanied with a highly detailed dress and necklace. However, brides with simpler dresses and necklace styles will often opt for a dangling, just-off-the-ear diamond or a long drop earring that stops just above the shoulder. Your earring should always be comfortable and not too heavy on your ears as you will have to wear them for many hours. With an up-do hairstyle, earrings really are a must to really complete your wedding look.

Bracelet

When it comes to your bracelet, it’s important that you begin by measuring your wrist. The fit is really important – too tight and your skin might bulge around it and too loose and you may be in danger of losing your bracelet on your special day. On your special day you will be shaking a lot of hands and hopefully waving your arms on the dance floor for most of the evening. The last thing you want is an uncomfortable bracelet that you will want to take off straight after the ceremony. After finding out your size, you can begin to search for bracelets to accompany the rest of your accessories. Thin chains and pearls are often a popular choice for wedding bracelets, but diamond bracelets are perfect with simpler dress styles to add a subtle extra sparkle.
