Top tips for choosing your wedding jewellery…

Your choice of accessories has a huge impact on your wedding day look, so take your time choosing your jewellery and hair accessories, you don’t want to rush those finishing touches.

To help you make your choices we have compiled our top five tips to choosing your wedding day jewellery, we hope this helps you make the right decisions…

You must buy your wedding dress first.
Finding accessories that match the dress, is far easier than the reverse. If you choose vintage style jewellery then try to match this to say a 50's style dress, you may find this doesn't suit your body shape, or on the other hand, if you choose very modern jewellery it may be that when you go dress shopping you find that classic dresses are more to your taste! So, first, buy your dress and then go shopping for the accessories.

Simple is elegant
Pay attention to how the jewellery comes together with the details on your dress. If the wedding dress has an elaborate neckline, go easy on the necklace, or if you want to cover your arms with long sleeves, you don't necessarily need to wear a bracelet. If there is a motif of significant size on the bust, neckline or waist, your jewellery should not clash with it. Creating a simple but elegant look can be tricky, but it can be achieved if you try to focus on what you really need. So, stay away from the temptation to choose more sparkles than is really necessary.

Go for balance
Not every item of jewellery you wear on your wedding day needs to be a statement piece. If your necklace is big and bold wear small studs or leave out earrings entirely. Likewise, if your dress features a beaded sash or waistband, go easy with the bling in your necklace.

Match your metal to your dress
When choosing jewellery, you have three main choices when it comes to metals: white, gold or pink/rose and each of these compliments specific dress colours. White metals like silver, palladium, platinum and white gold look good with brilliant white dresses, yellow gold looks better with cream hues and pink or rose gold goes with white and silver.

Think beyond the wedding ceremony
Unlike your wedding dress, you can get more than just one use out of your wedding jewellery, so make sure you keep this factor in mind when you choose your accessories. This makes it worthwhile to spend a little more on your jewellery than you had initially planned. Rather than choose items that are suitable just for the big day, or tie with your wedding theme, invest in jewellery that you like, and can see yourself wearing again in the future, either on a daily basis or for special occasions. If there is a gemstone that you're fond of or certain designs that you have fallen in love with, this may be the time to seriously consider buying it. This could even be your something new or an heirloom you pass down to your own daughter on her wedding day.

It is absolutely essential that you try on your wedding jewellery, along with your wedding dress, shoes etc, prior to your wedding day. You can take your accessories with you to your final dress fitting appointment when you will be trying on your wedding dress anyway, so there's no unnecessary handling of the dress. If you can also manage to do your hair in the style that you will be wearing on your wedding day, you will have a great overall idea of how you will look on your big day.
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.

Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year
Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year

July 30, 2021

Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines so far...

Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Create balance

Why are Pearls so associated with Weddings? Bridal Headpieces & Wedding Jewellery

June 19, 2020

Pearls are very often a popular wedding day gift for a bride, but why are pearls associated with weddings, you may be thinking!
Nadine Pearl Cluster Wedding Hair Clip
Thanks to their fabulous shimmering iridescence, these organic little gems have always been highly prized throughout history, in fact, Cleopatra is said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine before drinking it, simply to show Marc Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire country in just one meal, and the ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and marital harmony. During the crusades knights wore pearls on the battlefield, believing they held magic powers that would protect them from harm. In the 1500s pearls were so highly regarded that countries across Europe passed laws forbidding anyone apart from nobility to wear them. And even to this day, they are still a popular choice for royalty, especially at weddings. Queen Elizabeth II wore them at her wedding and over in the USA, Jacqueline Bouvier wore a strand the day she became Mrs Kennedy, which was almost royalty.
Are you considering making pearls part of your wedding? When it comes time to make your pearl selection, what do you need to know? Let us help...
