After finding your perfect wedding dress, it is time to focus on those tiny details to complete your look on your big day. Bridal earrings and other wedding accessories will set the tone of your entire look. You can instantly uplift the glamour of a sleek and minimalist wedding gown with statement chandelier earrings. If you prefer a classic look, you can never go wrong with pearl drops.
The trick is not to over-accessorise. Choose pieces that anchor your look. In most cases, a headpiece, veil, and statement earrings might be all you need to look your best.
Factor in three things when choosing the best bridal earrings: the style of your wedding dress, the neckline, and your hairstyle.
- Low back neckline or V neckline
A low V neckline or low V back is the ultimate for a sensual vibe. To accentuate the silhouette of a low V, consider statement earrings with a longer drop. Unique accessories such as thread earrings play on the long angular lines. Pearl drops or a pristine wedding veil emphasise the V lines further.
- Illusion neckline
An illusion neckline creates a feminine and sophisticated look. In many cases, a necklace cannot be worn with this style since it draws attention away from the dress. Moreover, the sharp ends can damage the sheer netting.
But longer bridal earrings create a flattering look for an illusion neckline since it elongates the bride’s neck and frames details on the neckline and sleeves.
- Off the shoulder
An off the shoulder neckline style is chic and utterly feminine. It highlights the neck, face, and shoulder of the bride. Drop earrings and a back-facing headpiece are terrific accessories for this type of neckline.
- High necklines
High necklines can be paired with stud earrings to highlight the face. Longer earrings with frilled designs also create a flattering look. Avoid wearing chandelier earrings if your dress has busy details near the face since it can be distracting and too overpowering.
Instead, pearl crystal studs or delicate chain earrings are the best pieces to wear to uplift the look of this modern neckline.
- Long sleeves
A long-sleeved wedding gown creates a regal and sophisticated effect. This wedding dress can be paired with longer earrings, especially if your dress has an open back design. But if the back is enclosed, a good option is a pearl or crystal stud to highlight the face and neckline area.
A sweetheart neckline is versatile and easy to accessorise. Although you have nearly unlimited choices, remember not to over-accessorise. If you want to wear a tiara, you don’t need to pair it with huge earrings or a necklace. A tiara with crystal studs looks exquisite and focuses attention on your face and dress.
- Your bridal hairstyle
Your hairstyle on your big day will be based on the style of your wedding dress as well as your personal taste. If you don’t want to expose your neck, you don’t need to follow the trend of wearing your hair up.
Likewise, there is no reason you shouldn’t wear long statement earrings if you opt to wear your hair down. Style hacks will ensure you will still have an open and clean look. A half-up hairstyle or side-swept option gives you the best of both worlds.
