Jewellery advice for Mother-Of-The-Bride

As the mother of the bride, it's only natural for you to want to look your best on your daughter's big day. But, it's not just about your outfit. The accessories you choose to complement it with can have a big impact on your overall look. While you may have already found the perfect mother of the bride outfit, giving some thought to the accessories you'll complement it with on the day will ensure you really look the part. From finding the right colour scheme for your jewellery to narrowing down the type of pieces you'll wear, there's plenty to think about…
Mother of the Bride
Consider the cut and shape of your outfit:
The most common mother of the bride outfit consists of a beautiful dress but thinking about the details of this can help you to make smart jewellery choices. For example, if you have a high neck dress, adding a necklace can make your outfit look too busy, while bracelets stacked on top of long sleeves can cause the same issue.
Instead, look for opportunities to fill any empty spaces with accessories. For square or sweetheart necklines, decorative drop necklaces or statement earrings can add a luxurious touch and tie your look together. If your dress is long-sleeved and high-necked, try selecting a pair of subtle stud earrings and opting for brooches or pins for an understated style boost.
Bridal Decoration
Colour match your accessories to the bridal party:
As part of the bride's nearest and dearest, many mothers choose to create a sense of cohesion between themselves and the bridal party. When it comes to doing this with jewellery it's simple, all you need to do is pick accessories in the same colour or hue as the bridal party's dresses or outfits. If they're wearing deep reds, selecting some dazzling ruby rings, necklaces or bracelets can help to tie your look in with theirs. Alternatively, if they're dressed in more neutral colours, like blush or pale pink, consider incorporating pink quartz or pink sapphire into your jewellery to ensure you all match nicely.

Don't be tempted to try out a new style:
Your daughter's wedding day won't just be a wonderful memory for the happy couple, but also for you, too. What better way to preserve these memories than by investing in wearable pieces that will remind you of the wedding each time you put them on? While you might want to step out of your comfort zone for the day, if this isn't your usual style, it's unlikely you'll wear the piece again. Instead, opting for subtler pieces you can incorporate into your everyday looks will be great. This could include picking simple, dainty pieces that include little gemstone details, as opposed to chunky, oversized jewellery. Similarly, choosing types of jewellery you actually wear will help you to get the most out of your accessories. Don't be tempted to buy extravagant pieces if it’s not your usual style.
Less is more:
It's important to make sure you're not over-accessorising. Wearing too many statement pieces together can take the focus away from the bride and turn it towards you. To ensure you find the right balance between being identified as an important part of the wedding, and being minimal enough to let your daughter shine, we would suggest opting for a simple matching set like our Ariel Awarovski pendant and earrings to add subtle touches of luxury to your look.
