You’ve seen it on TV before: it all becomes real when saying yes to the dress when the stylist adds a pair of bridal earrings and hair accessories to bring the look to life! Your bridal jewellery is what really gives your dress a personal touch and makes it yours. These pieces are often more glamorous than your everyday jewellery you have at home so making decisions might feel somewhat tougher!
If you are looking for help when it comes to accessorizing your wedding dress and picking out jewellery, read on, because here at Model Chic Australia, we are going to share our best tips to transforming you wedding look with bridal earrings and hair pieces!
How to Choose the Right Earrings for your Wedding Dress
Consider Your Wedding Dress Neckline
It’s not just necklaces that have to worry about the neckline, you need to keep this in mind when choosing your earrings too! For instance, if you are channeling your inner Paris Hilton and opting for a more conservative lace high-necklace. You may not want a statement earring that might lead to “too much” going on around the face. If you have a V-neckline and plan to not wear a necklace then a bold statement earring would be just for you! For a sweetheart neckline, you will likely have the room for something just in between minimal and bold for both your earrings and necklace choice.
Pair Based on the Details and Embellishments on your Bridal Gown
Similar to our Paris Hilton example above, the material, fabric, and embellishments of your dress can affect what jewellery would look best. Does your dress have pearl accents? Choose an earring that also has pearls to make them pop! If your dress has a lot going on with plenty of sparkle and accents keep the jewellery minimal. If your dress is minimal, then add texture and dimension with statement jewellery.
Keep Your Wedding Theme & Style in Mind
While much of your bridal look centers around what you choose for your wedding dress, keep your overall theme and wedding style in mind when choosing earrings. A bride hosting a tropical destination wedding may want to choose something like our Harlow Boho Flower Bridal Earrings while the classic-vintage bride might opt for our Lydia Crystal CZ Bridal Earrings!
Finding the Right Hair Accessories to Complete Your Look
When it comes to choosing the right hair accessories to complete your bridal look, you want to follow the same rule of thumb as to when picking out your bridal earrings. You want to consider your overall wedding style and theme, your dress’s neckline, and the amount of detail that is already included in your dress.
When choosing the perfect hair accessories, you want to make sure that your overall look is balanced out with the earrings. A statement earring and statement hairpiece might be too much to look at when paired together. We recommend choosing one of the pieces to be minimal while your other piece can make a bold statement. So, if you decide to wear a bold hairpiece like our Elsie Gemstone Bridal Headband, consider going for a dainty, smaller earring like the Ada Crystal & Pearl CZ Bridal Earrings (and vice versa!)
