Congratulations, you are engaged! You have picked a wedding dress that will make you look like a star. However, in between choosing shoes, your veil, bouquet and other items, your choice of jewelry can get lost. Should you keep it simple or glamorous? Which pieces match with your gown? Before you head to the shop, here are the top rules for getting your wedding jewelry right.

Match The Metals To Your Gown.

If you have picked a white bridal gown, match it up with platinum or silver pieces. Gold jewelry will clash with your bright white hue. Gold jewelry is perfect for ivory and champagne gowns. For a blush wedding dress, get rose gold jewelry to match with the dress’ soft pink.

Keep Your Hairstyle in Mind.

Up-dos are what wearing statement designer earrings are for. Women in up-dos look smashing when they pair their look with drops or stud earrings. If you have opted for a statement necklace as well, make sure your earrings will not overpower it. Down-dos go well with statement necklaces and stud earrings. Try statement earrings that will sparkle through your locks if you will not be wearing a necklace.

Consider Your Gown’s Neckline.

For a strapless or sweetheart neckline, consider a short necklace or a choker. You can also opt to forego the necklace and go for chandelier earrings only. For V-neck bridal gowns, pendants or chokers paired with small earrings are an excellent choice. For halters, focus on accessorizing your hair with sleek, floral or bejeweled pins and combs.

As it is good to know, you should also keep in mind what not to do. Remember not to overdo your wedding jewelry no matter how tempting. You need to look like the prettiest version of your everyday self — not become an entirely different person. You also need to choose pieces that make you comfortable and complement your personality. If you are comfortable with your wedding accessories, you will feel confident. Most importantly, don’t stress on your wedding day. Enjoy it as it will one of the most memorable days of your life.
