’žA wedding is an exciting time that is filled with plans and expectations. The bride and groom are kept busy making arrangements for everything from the cake, reception to where the honeymoon will take place. Remembering the bridal jewelry for the wedding party may not be on the top of the list, but it is an important part of the wedding.
Bridal jewelry is the jewelry that traditionally the bride gives as a gift to the members of the bridal party. Most bridal jewelry consists of a necklace and earrings but a bracelet can also be part of the set. Bridal jewelry is significant in that it not only marks a thank you to the bridal party, but it is a personal gift from the bride to her party.
Deciding On What Will Work
When looking at bridal jewelry, the bride needs to consider what types of dresses are being worn. Depending on the neckline, bridal jewelry should accent the dress, so if it is a lower neckline the length of the necklace can be longer. Make sure to have a good idea on the length of necklace needed so that the entire outfit works together.
The style of earrings is another factor to consider. Drop earrings may be too dressy for a morning wedding, although they can work if they are not to ornate. Since not everyone has pierced ears, it can become difficult to find jewelry that all matches if there is a need for clip on earrings.
Often, bridal jewelry is made of classic designs and materials such as pearls or beads. This type of material can match almost any dress and looks stylish and won’t be out of place at almost any wedding. Bridal jewelry is a way to complete the bridal party’s outfits and let them know how special they are to the bride and groom.
There are companies that sell bridal jewelry on-line that are able to match pierced to clip earrings. These sites are simple to locate and they usually have reasonable prices on their items.
Local jewelers can also help put together a matching set of bridal jewelry, and in fact getting in touch with someone that makes jewelry can also be a great idea. Many jewelry designers have materials at their homes that a bride can then pick through to select the perfect gifts for her bridal party. This can also be a great way to truly individualize a bridal jewelry gift and make it something special.
