If you’ve received a wedding invite in the mail – then lucky you! Weddings are exciting and the perfect occasion to dress up with pretty accessories. It’s fun picking out the right jewelry to match your outfit – the finishing touch to make you feel fantastic for this special day.
What to wear with your dress at a wedding
Is the wedding coming up and you’re unsure what to wear with your new, pretty dress? Don’t worry. It doesn’t have to be stressful if you know a few basic rules. We’ve listed the do’s and don’ts on how to accessorize as a wedding guest.
Less is more: Keep it subtle
The rule of thumb as a wedding guest is to keep it simple – it’s common sense, really. That doesn’t mean you can’t wear bold jewelry, but you might want to stay away from extremely large and bright accessories that draw too much attention. Stay away from excessively glittery and big accessories – they will look out of place on a formal occasion like a wedding ceremony. You could, however, bring some more bold pieces with you and put them on once the wedding party starts.
Choose a small handbag or clutch
Leave your large purse at home or in the car before attending the ceremony. You probably won’t need all the extra stuff in there anyway. Think about what you really need to bring and stick with that. By doing that you can stick to a small clutch or handbag, which is more practical to carry with you and also looks better. Just make sure you bring some cash for tipping at the bar, your phone, credit card, and ID and perhaps some makeup and tissues.
What jewelry should I wear to a wedding?
As we mentioned earlier it’s a good idea to stay away from anything too bold while you’re attending the ceremony. After all, you want the bride to be at the center of attention. You still have a lot of options when it comes to what jewelry you can wear:
- Matching just two pieces, like earrings and necklace, is often perfect. More pieces, like a bracelet, is fine but you should stick to a small, discreet style.
- Silver jewelry looks good with almost any outfit and is a nice compliment to your dress.
- Have fun with your jewelry and wear what makes you feel your best!
Use contrasting colors for your jewelry
What color you pick for your jewelry depends on your dress. Pastels, for example, are perfect for a happy day like this. If you’re wearing a patterned dress, you could choose a minor color in it and match it with for example a pair of earrings in the same color. On the other hand, if your dress is for example blue, it will look great with jewelry in contrasting colors like gold, yellow, silver or diamond. It could easily become too much if you wear the same shade on everything.
