Whether your bridal gown is a couture show-stopper or or elegantly understated, your accessories make all the difference on your big day. The right accessories not only complement your gown but also harmonize your entire bridal look.
Choosing high-quality pieces that resonate with your personal style ensures you can enjoy wearing them with affection and sentiment for many years.
We've created this guide to help you choose the perfect bridal earrings. Can't quite find your perfect match? We also offer a bespoke design service and would love to create something unique to your personal style.
Consider your hairstyle and if you'll be wearing a veil
If you're opting for an up-style, or half-up, half-down, a statement shoulder-duster style such as our Odette or Gisele is a great option. On the other hand, if you're wearing your hair down, it's generally advisable to keep your earrings simple, like studs or small drop earrings such as our Camille or Audrey to avoid snagging.
Also, take into account the type of veil you'll be wearing, if any. For veils with a blusher layer or mantilla veils, it might be wise to choose understated pearl bridal earrings to avoid overwhelming your overall look
Balance the rest of your accessories
If you're opting for a statement pearl bridal earring, keeping your other accessories simple and complementary will ensure your bridal earrings make the statement you desire. Conversely, if you decide on a statement necklace, opt for a simple and classic pair of bridal earrings.
Consider the neckline of your gown
For strapless or off-shoulder gowns, long pearl drop earrings or statement earrings are a great option as they add interest to the space between your ear and shoulder. For high necklines, consider small drop earrings or studs to prevent making the area appear too crowded. If you have a low front or v-neckline, you don't necessarily need a necklace to fill the space. Instead, consider making a bold statement with your earrings.
Consider the level of embellishment on your gown
If your gown is heavily embellished with lace or sequins, you may wish to opt for a sleek and refined style to ensure your gown is not overpowered by your accessories. If you're opting for a gown with minimal embellishments, you can either play off the sleek, minimalist style or add a lot of flare with statement earrings.
Try your accessories on with your dress before the big day
This seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes beautiful, stand-alone pieces sometimes just don't work together. Trying everything on before the day will ensure your feel confident and your wedding day is stress-free. Taking your bridal earrings with you to your dress fitting is a great way to help you achieve a cohesive bridal look.
Comfort, comfort, comfort...
Above all, your comfort on the big day is paramount, and your accessories should not distract from your presence and enjoyment of every moment. If you opt for something large and heavy for the ceremony, it's a good idea to have an alternate pair of bridal earrings on hand to switch into for the evening. At Love Story Atelier, all our earrings are exquisitely lightweight, ensuring a seamless transition from the aisle to the dance floor.
