bridesmaid jewelry

Well ladies, wedding season is here and for Christina, she has been in full wedding mode. You can image the wedding talk that has been flying in and out of the office and all this wedding talk has got me looking at Christina Greene’s jewelry, asking myself, “what jewelry pieces would I wear to a wedding?” Which that question is followed by multiple other questions, “Is it appropriate to wear pearl jewelry since it’s white?” “Would wearing black colored jewelry be offensive, as if I’m mourning over the couple who is getting married.” “What is considered too much or too less?” The questions go on and on.. So after doing my own research and asking Christina’s advice, I thought I would put together a blog for all the women that have the same question as me, “What are the best jewelry pieces to wear to a wedding?”

If you have any other advice or tips to add, please comment below!

As everyone knows, being a guest at a wedding, you must show your respect to the couple, meaning you need to look your best. However, styling an outfit for wedding guest attire can be overwhelming or in my case become filled with a lot of questions and uncertainty.

Your accessories offer up the opportunity to add even more style to your outfit. Here are some helpful guidelines in order to make sure you are choosing the right items.

  1. DON'T OVER DUE IT
    Wear jewelry to compliment your outfit and not overdue it – The most important wedding etiquette for the guests is not to complete with the bride. Be mindful and use good judgement when trying to match your dress with jewelry. Too much and you’ve outshine the bride, not enough and you may look as if the day is just a normal day when it is the biggest day for the bride.

 

  1. MINIMAL JEWELRY OR COLORFUL JEWELRY
    If there are a lot of details, print and colors in your outfit, opt for minimal jewelry. If you are looking for a bit of vibrant touch, pair your fun, colorful jewelry with a conservative outfit. Meaning, if your dress is simple and plain, spice it up with jewelry.

  1. AVOID DIAMOND JEWELRY 
    If diamonds are your best friend, take it as an opportunity to wear a different style of jewelry. Leave the diamonds to the bride, it’s her day after all. (Yes, your wedding or engagement ring is acceptable.)

 

  1. AVOID STATEMENT PIECES
    As a guest keep in mind you want to wear jewelry that doesn’t attract too much attention. Wearing elegant pieces is fine, much make sure not to overdo it.

 

(It’s all about a well, respectable balance ladies!)

 

  1. NECKLACES FOR DIFFERENT NECKLINES
    If your dress is high-neck, you probably don’t need a necklace and can opt for a bracelet and earrings instead. If your dress is strapless, a necklace will compliment nicely. If your necklace is bold, you probably need to choose simpler earrings and bracelet.

 

  1. “PEARLS ARE ALWAYS SUITABLE FOR WEDDINGS.”
    My question answered! Pearl jewelry is elegant and suitable for any wedding. You can always go for this safe bet when attending wedding events. It will surely give you enough class and you won’t have to worry about all the other “Do’s and Don’ts”.

CONCLUSION

Weddings are celebrations that are best shared with the couples’ loved ones. If you are attending a wedding, make sure to plan and celebrate with the couple in mind by wearing the appropriate type of jewelry. It’s about a well, respectable balance with some give and take. Be selfless – as it is the brides day, but don’t forget to express yourself as well.

BALANCE. GIVE AND TAKE.
