Our favourite Bridal Jewellery Do's and Don'ts
Are you starting to think of how to accessorise your bridal look for your Big Day? When it comes to the jewellery, here are some of our favourite tips to bear in mind:
Do think of unexpected ways to wear heirlooms. An antique brooch can look beautiful sewn into an updo, or to help hold a veil in place. Talk to your hairstylist about the best way to incorporate it - and talk to us if you need the pin or fitting altered to work!
Don't be afraid to mix it up - a delicate stud or drop earring for the ceremony, and then switch it out to a fun chandelier for the dinner and dancing!
Do check any borrowed/pre-existing pieces; bring them in to us for a service to make sure prongs are tight around stones, that earring backs are in tact and that bracelet clasps necklaces are strong to avoid losses on the day.
Do consider the neckline of your dress before committing to a necklace; sometimes a bare neck and a great pair of earrings is more impactful.
Don't wear a watch - you don't need to keep an eye on the time! Let everyone else around you do the worrying while you enjoy yourself.
Do think twice if considering a bracelet - if the fabric you are wearing is delicate it may be advisable to avoid anything that will catch or snag.
Don't forget to think about where your engagement ring will go! You'll need your ring finger bare for the all-important placing of the wedding ring, so consider whether you'll wear it on a different hand, or if you can trust a bridesmaid to mind it for the ceremony.
