For many of us the most important day of our lives is our wedding day. That day everything must be perfect, from the music to the folding of the napkins on the tables. We all want to look spectacularly perfect.
But among many things and details perhaps the last thing you might think about is in the jewelry you will wear that day. Not all of us will choose the same dress and we won’t all like the same kind of jewelry, but I’ll try to give you some tips to inspire you and for you to choose wisely.
The first and most important of all tip s is to choose your wedding jewelry to complement, not to compete with your dress. Never buy the jewelry before the dress, as this would complicate everything.
Never use silver and gold together, although this is already allowed, it’s not recommended for that special day. Try to use jewelry that says something about you and that reflects your personality.
Considering that the wedding photos will be shown for decades, we can choose timeless jewelry stones like pearls, crystals or diamonds, so your jewelry will seem eternal.
Don’t forget that “less is more” It doesn’t matter what your dress looks like. But if your dress is simple, you could break this rule and use something more striking. Wedding jewelry and regular jewelry have little difference among themselves, so don’t complicate things looking for “wedding jewelry”.
Try to find versatile jewelry so you can use them again and again, something you can’t do with the dress. If you’re going to have a relaxed wedding or a beach wedding you can wear accessories for your feet.
And finally, DON’T wear another ring. With your wedding ring it’s enough, you wouldn’t want to overshadow the most important piece of the day.
