Pippa Middleton’s wedding was classic, elegant, and absolutely stunning! She may not be royalty, but she certainly looked the part in her custom designed Giles Deacon gown paired with a gorgeous dainty tiara and simple drop earrings. Loving bridal accessories as much as we do, we were swooning over her bridal look. If you’re as inspired by her style as we are, check out the perfect pieces we’ve rounded up to get her look!
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!).
For those who have chosen dresses that have elegant pearl embroidery can bring attention to this classy detail by opting for a traditional pearl jewelry embedded with crystals or rhinestones if you want that extra glitz!
Gowns with an accented colored sash such as pink or burgundy look stunning with colored crystal earrings that match to add more to your bridal look. Adding color will also give you a more modern look.
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.
While intense, flowing waves will look better with something a bit funkier.
No matter what combination, your wedding earrings will add to the shine of your wedding day. Good luck, and happy shopping! For more inspiration, check out our Pinterest page! https://www.pinterest.com/usabride/
