A quick guide to choosing your Wedding Jewellery

Bridal jewellery is a huge part of your whole wedding day look, you'll obviously be acquiring a new ring in the process of the day, but the pieces you choose to accompany your dream dress are important too.
We have put together our quick guide to choosing your wedding jewellery, to give you a helping hand and take some of the stress out of your preparations for the big day...

Less Is More:
Don't overdo things, remember it’s all about the dress and each piece of jewellery should compliment your gown. Aim for an overall well-blended look for your entire ensemble. For example, if your gown has an ornate neckline, then don't wear a necklace because it may cause the neckline to appear too busy. Instead, go for drop earrings like our Violet, Teardrop Pearl Gold Earrings.

Make A Statement:
If your bridal gown is on the simpler side then you have carte blanche to make a bold statement with your chosen bridal jewellery. Statement necklaces are very on-trend this year and our Eve-P, Statement Pearl Necklace is perfect to add some drama to your simple but elegant look.

Choose Wedding Jewellery That Compliments The Colour Of Your Dress:
If you're undecided on whether to wear yellow gold, white gold or rose gold, then there is an easy solution, let the colour of your dress dictate the metal!
If your gown is white, go for white gold or silver pieces, if you’ve chosen an ivory dress then yellow gold will enhance the look and if your wedding dress is hues of pink or blush then rose gold is most suitable. Our Kiki Rose gold hair comb would be a perfect addition for a bride wearing a blush dress.

Consider The Neckline Of Your Dress:
The neckline of your bridal gown is THE deciding factor for the sort of necklace you should wear. A choker or a shorter necklace is suitable for dresses with a strapless neckline or sweetheart neckline. If your gown has an ornate neckline, then ditch the necklace for a beautiful hair accessory hair. If you feel out of balance don't hesitate to add a little bracelet into the mix, we love the Nancy, Art Deco Inspired Bracelet for this purpose.

Don’t mix your metals:
Too many metals can potentially spoil the whole look of your ensemble. Perhaps try and match everything to your engagement ring and wedding band. If they are platinum then try to add accessories of white gold or silver, such as the Ariel, Swarovski Pendant & Earrings Set.

The most important thing about picking the perfect bridal jewellery to accompany your wedding gown is that they should be a reflection of you. If you're not comfortable wearing drop earrings, stick to studs. Love the way you look in a chunky necklace? Go for it! If you're happy in all your accessories, you’ll feel confident and wear a smile which is the most important accessory of all.
No matter what your own personal style, we know that you will find something in the Jules Bridal Jewellery collection to suit you. We have a wide selection from bracelets to headpieces, to compliment your wedding day ensemble as well as those of your bridal party.

Choosing your bridal jewellery is one of THE best parts about planning your wedding ensemble and we should know! But there are other accessories that need to be considered in the run-up to the big day, so we have pulled together this guide to make sure you don’t miss anything…

Shoes:
When it comes to shoes comfort is key, remember that you will be wearing these shoes for the majority of the day, you will be standing, walking and dancing, so, go for natural materials, as they are more breathable and will stretch to fit your feet. Also, don’t forget to buy your shoes around the same time as you order your wedding dress. This is very important as your alterations, especially the hem adjustment, will depend on the height of your heel. Buying shoes early on will mean you are ready for all of your fittings and that you have plenty of time to break them in at home.
The timing of your wedding can be a deciding factor on your footwear choice. If you are getting married in winter, you might want a back-up pair of weddingtons (see what we did there!) to avoid the puddles, or if you are having your reception in the summer months you might want a pair of flats or wedges at the ready for walking on grass. In fact, having a back-up pair of flats is always a great idea, just in case!

When it comes to traditions, you can’t fit many more into one occasion than you can on a Wedding day! From the brides choice of a gown to the ceremony itself, the best man's speech, the first dance and the bouquet toss, your big day will be a constant nod to tradition. You might find some of the customs aren't in keeping with the style of your wedding, but when it comes down to bridal jewellery, you'll appreciate many of the old traditions, mainly because the bride comes out of it pretty well, with lots of sparkly options…

Pearls:
It is traditionally the job of the groom or the father-of-the-bride to gift the bride with pearls on the day of her wedding. Pearls are seen as a symbol of perfection, purity and innocence, and it is said that the ancient Greeks believed pearls would help ensure marital bliss and prevent newlywed brides from crying!
When it comes to wedding jewellery there are many, many choices when it comes to pearls. You could opt for a pearl choker, a discreet pearl bracelet, some beautiful earrings or one of our favourites, a pearl headpiece, here is our Gold Leaf and Freshwater Pearl Headpiece, which is a great choice for any bride.

Bridesmaids and mothers of the bride are often heavily involved in helping the bride to choose her dress and accessories for the big day. So why not turn the tables and choose an item for them to show how much you appreciate all of their efforts that they can wear on the wedding day too.

Here is our guide to selecting a piece of jewellery for every member of your wedding party…

Mother of the Bride
A daughter treating her mum to a beautiful piece of jewellery on the day of a wedding is a beautiful gesture. Not only will it make the mother of the bride feel amazing, but she will also have something to wear, enjoy and treasure for years to come. Perhaps the lucky daughters may also find such this treasure in their own jewellery box one day! Our very own real-life bride Stephanie chose these beautiful earrings for her mum and they were a big hit on the day.
