Wedding Earrings: Selecting the Finishing Touch

Plenty of brides have asked us, along with friends and family “Are these earrings too big?” or “Should I go with an elegant drop or stay with simple studs?” Wedding earrings can make or break an outfit, and on a bride’s wedding day they are essential to her ensemble. You want to add some glam to your look without stealing attention away from the gown. All earrings are made to be shown off. Therefore, you want to pick an earring that will get the proper kind of attention.

Balancing Your Wedding Earrings and Your Dress

Start by thinking about the style of your wedding dress. If your gown contains stunning silver beading, stick to earrings that are solely silver (Or maybe a pair with rhinestones for that touch of glam!).

Also try to keep in mind your dress’ neckline. Brides wearing strapless gowns should go for a bold pair of earrings. This accent piece along with a stunning necklace will fill in all that open space.

In contrast, if your dress has heavy ornamentation, your wedding earrings should be short enough so they don’t take away from the gown’s accent.

Incorporating Your Hairstyle

It is also extremely important to pay attention to how your wedding hairstyle and earrings will balance out. Soft, romantic hairstyles look best with elegant feminine accessories.
