Need help choosing the perfect wedding earrings? Bridal Earrings are the most important accessory for your wedding day! There are so many things to consider when deciding on the perfect bridal earrings to complement your wedding gown!
We are going to help you with the different styles you need to consider when purchasing your perfect wedding earrings – length, style and shape – will you choose a chandelier, statement or stud design. Here are some of our ideas for helping you to choose the perfect pair.
Style of Earrings:
The most important choice for bridal earrings is the style or era they convey. A pair of utterly vintage earrings may be ideal to uplift a plain, classic and add interest but a pair of modern earrings might completely clash with a delicate, lace vintage-style gown.
We suggest looking for the following features when opting for vintage-style earrings: antique silver or gold plating, baguette crystals, pave set crystal stones, vintage-style scrolls, intricate detailing or pearls.
Modern earrings are the obvious choice for a contemporary or classic gown with sleek lines, fishtail or train and maybe even to enhance a coloured wedding dress. Consider teardrop stones as they are always timeless, opt for clear crystal which sparkles the most and choose man-made pearls over freshwater pearls.
Chandelier and Statement Earrings:
The shape of bridal earrings which you choose will depend on which style of earrings you are used to wearing and also how much of a statement you want to create with your overall look. A glamorous updo is the perfect opportunity to show off a dramatic pair of statement earrings or chandelier bridal earrings. Dazzling chandelier bridal earrings can add glamour, romance, and elegance to any bridal ensemble.
Chandelier earrings, which are more elaborate dangling earrings, would be best worn without a necklace. Chandelier earrings can be enhanced with gemstones, pearls or crystals. If these bridal earrings are chosen, the earrings become the statement jewellery item.
Statement Bridal Earrings are big, blingy and the hero piece of your overall look paired with a perfectly simple elegant wedding dress and a classic updo will be sure to make the perfect piece. Remember not to have competing accessories, keep everything else simple.
Short or Long Drop Earrings:
Studs are the ideal choice for the bride who wants to keep it understated and simple. If you aren’t used to wearing any jewellery at all, this is the ‘safest’ option as it will not change your overall style. There are still plenty of options and designs with stud bridal earrings without compromising on style.
For the bride who doesn’t usually wear earrings, then you could always choose a very long, statement drop earrings with crystals, tassels or pearls to add interest to your gown.
Here are our top tips to help you choose the perfect Bridal Earrings
1. COMFORT Weddings earrings need to be comfortable. If you’re not used to wearing large earrings, you will certainly notice wearing them all day so you need them to be beautiful AND practical.
2. ACCESSORIES Consider all your accessories and dress details first before choosing your earrings. Earrings and accessories don’t have to be matchy matchy these days, but if your dress features pearl or crystal embellishments, then consider earrings with the same elements. We’ve said this before if you have one statement piece whether it be a headpiece, earrings or your dress ensure all your other accessories are balanced. Make sure you’re happy with all your pieces by trying them all on together before the big day.
3. HAIRSTYLE Your hairstyle will also have an impact on your earring choice. Statement earrings work brilliantly with an updo or, for an elegant look, choose a pair of stud earrings. If you’re wearing your hair down, long statement earrings that sparkle through your tumbling tresses. TOP TIP take your wedding accessories to your hair trial to see how they will look with your hairstyle.
4. BRIDAL PARTY Decide if you’d like your bridesmaids or Maid of Honour to be able to wear earrings that coordinate with yours. Many of Little White Couture Bridal Earrings provide similar styles in different designs so you can all have a similar look without matching completely.
Your chosen jewellery should be pieces that you love and bring balance to your overall look. When it comes to your wedding earrings remember they are going to be forever special and you should be able to wear them after the big day. Wear them as often as you like and enjoy your wedding earrings for years to com
