styled – weddings

Jewelry for your wedding can be daunting – there is lots to think about and an overwhelming number of decisions to balance. Here are a couple things I always advise my brides to noodle when picking out their wedding jewelry:

Always start with the dress: the cut of the neckline, where the straps fall and any adornment along the bodice.  Jewelry for yourself and/or your bridesmaids should complement the dress, not compete with it.

Size matters. Consider the size of yours and your wedding party’s bouquets. A single flower or long stem bouquet looks best paired a shorter necklace rather than a longer one.  Carrying a petite nosegay? A large statement necklace can look disproportionate with the delicacy and size of a smaller bouquet.
