Do not Wear Too Much Jewelry On Your Wedding Day

You want the focus on you on your wedding day, not your jewelry. Wear one bold piece, consistent with your theme, from a bridal rental, if needed. 

Wearing too much jewelry on  your wedding day can cause an unintended distraction. Your wedding day is going to be one of the best days of your life. You can expect that this is also probably one of the days where you will be taking the most photos, and you want to make sure that you look stunning.

Wearing too much jewelry on your wedding day can be an unintended distraction.

Finding just the right balance of jewelry can be tricky. And there aren’t really any set fashion rules about it either. This makes it a little more fun, but also a little more frustrating, especially if you aren’t confident in your jewelry choices.

You don’t want to overwhelm your body with too much jewelry. The bigger or brighter the piece, the simpler the rest of your outfit and jewelry selection should be.

You want just enough jewelry to add a little punch to your outfit, or perhaps just a hint of class. But you don’t want to wear so many pieces that you end up setting off the metal detectors at the airport. The Ingle and Rhode Reviews give us an idea.

Here are a few simple tips that will help you choose which jewelry for your wedding and how much:

One bold piece: If you own a bigger broach or a really chunky necklace or ring, pair it with something simpler. For example: a chunky necklace would pair well with very simple stud earrings. Large earrings could be the sole piece of jewelry for your entire outfit.

You don’t want to overwhelm your body with too much jewelry. The bigger or brighter the piece, the simpler the rest of your outfit and jewelry selection should be.

Color Code: Be conscious of your wedding color theme. If your outfit is bright, consider choosing solid pieces that contrast with your outfit. Black or silver pieces will add class without blinding everyone in sight. The same thing applies with heavy patterns. If you choose a dress or coat with a large or intense pattern, choose jewelry that has a softer edge to offer contrast.

On the other hand a plain black dress or gray suit could benefit from a splash of bright color from your jewelry.

Size matters: When you are pairing jewelry pieces you don’t want to do all large items (a chunky necklace, chunky bracelet, and chunky earrings) or else you’ll end up looking like Wilma Flintstone. The same rule applies with length. A long necklace is best paired with smaller, simple earrings.

If you choose a choker style necklace consider a pair of dangling earrings and a loose bracelet to bring contrast to your necklace.

When in doubt, keep it simple. Wearing a pair of dangly earrings and a conservative necklace is always safe for the office. Toss the necklace and suit coat and add a few dangly bracelets and you’re ready for a night on the town.
