SUBTLE V STATEMENT
A pair of gorgeous bridal earrings is a wedding day essential, but there are decisions to be made. Sparkle or lustre? Vintage or modern? Plain or packed with intricate detail? Think about the shade, material and style of your dress before you make your earring selection.
If your dress is a mass of ruffles or lace, a simple pair of bridal stud earrings – pearls or crystals – may work best. Dropper earrings are the go-to style for many brides and they work well with both modern and vintage gowns and can help accentuate cheekbones, while nestling nearly in your hair or being showcased with an up-do. Fancy something more conspicuous? Bold chandelier style wedding earrings will give that instant wow-factor and can look amazing if you have a dress with a plain neckline. Remember to keep other jewellery minimal.
For the vintage bride, wedding earrings with pearls that pick up the ivory tones in your wedding gown will add a soft, warm accent. Thanks to their natural simplicity, pearls can also be worn in a fresh way – teamed with a sleek dress featuring clean lines and unfussy fabrics.
Crystals worked into period-style wedding earrings will sparkle like treasure on your big day and are hard to beat for the sheer glamour factor. They're perfect teamed with an elegant up-do and perfectly complement either a modern or more traditional bridal look.
Just because you're a bride, there's no rule that says you have to wear neutral shades. A pop of bright colour will give your look fashion edge. Deep green emeralds set into your wedding earrings will make for a surprising contrast when worn with ivory, while stones in a subtle rose shade will add romantic charm.Read more...
