Bridesmaid jewelry is frequently given by brides to their ‘maids as a pre-wedding gift to invite them to share in her special day. It lets the bride coordinate her attendants’ looks and spares them the expense of having to buy jewelry to coordinate with their dresses. It’s considered almost mandatory at this point for brides who want their bridesmaids to match, to buy their gal pals’ jewelry sets.
There’s so much out there that some brides find it near impossible to choose. If you’ve been stressing out about your attendants’ jewelry, we have some pointers that will lower your wedding planning stress and beautifully complete your bridesmaids’ looks. Here’s our guide for bridesmaid jewelry:
Informal weddings call for less ornate jewelry, like single stone bridesmaid jewelry sets and delicate accessories. While larger, more formal affairs may warrant something more glamorous. It’s all about your preference, and what your girls will look best in!
Bridesmaid Dress Color:
Keep in mind that if you’ve fallen in love with a crystal jewelry set and the color isn’t an exact match, that’s okay! Ivory or champagne jewelry is neutral and works with almost all bridesmaid dress hues and is a little more exciting than colorless while still letting your wedding colors stand out.
Time of Year:
Spring and summer weddings call for lighter colors and can be often inspired by nature. Our Pure Sparkle Jewelry Set would be a perfect set for spring or summer. Fall and winter weddings may call for slightly darker shades like chocolate, burgundy or even black. Our Jacqueline Jewelry Set with it’s darker hued crystals would be perfect for the colder seasons.
Do they have to wear all the same bridesmaid jewelry?
Perish the thought! Of course not! One trend we’ve seen and loved is each bridesmaid wearing different colors and styles of jewelry and shoes. Just try to make sure that the jewelry you choose features the same gem and overall style so there’s a unifying factor. What’s fun about mixing it up a little is that buying the bridesmaid gift is easy- everyone is technically getting the same thing- but you can choose colors and designs that reflect your bridesmaids’ personalities.
Here’s what we mean: Everyone has a friend who’s larger than life. She loves to have fun and is brilliantly boisterous. Think lots of sparkle to match her sparkly personality, like a rhinestone jewelry set thats big and bold or a chunky pearl choker that has edge. For the bridesmaid who is more reserved, think classic and traditional, like a single stone rhinestone necklace set or a traditional drop pearl set.
Good luck, and happy shopping!
