Bridesmaids’ Jewelry

Find the perfect cherry to top off their look!

Picture a cupcake without the frosting, a burger without the cheese, or a sundae without the cherry. They still look good, but you’ve got to admit, there’s just something missing. It’s those finishing touches that really make each food special (and let’s face it, tasty)! When it comes to bridesmaids, of course the dress is the “meat” of their look, but it’s the jewelry that really completes their wedding day style. So yeah, it’s pretty important to pick just the right pieces! Here are some things to consider – along with some pretty pieces from Flair sprinkled in there!:

Dress Style – If you chose a soft, romantic bridesmaid’s dress, for example, then your jewelry should follow suit. Consider a classic string of pearls as opposed to a chunky statement piece that reads more modern.

Dress cut – Not all dress silhouettes go with all styles of jewelry. Higher necklines are trickier to pair with a necklace, for instance, so you may want to consider earrings and/or a bracelet instead. A thicker cut v-neck already takes up plenty of real estate on your girls’ décolletage, so if that’s your chosen style you’ll want to think about a thin, delicate necklace to match.

Dress fabric – These days, bridesmaids’ dresses are getting more and more intricate. Complete with sparkle and even patterns, some dresses today make a loud enough statement all on their own! If that’s the case with your chosen dress, you may want to opt for a simple stud earring that won’t compete with the dress.

A jewelry set is the perfect way to ensure that your earrings and necklace match perfectly!

Whatever you’re considering, decide in advance if you’ll be picking up the jewelry tab or allowing your girls to choose and buy their own accessories. If you’re not footing the bill, you can give them guidelines but really the final decision is theirs, so make sure you’re comfortable with that! Lastly, think about if you’re OK with your girls coordinating their own pieces into their wedding day look. Maybe one girl has an heirloom watch that she never takes off, for example. Are you OK with her wearing it on your big day? If not, think of a way to gently let the girls know that the pieces you/they pick are really the only accessories you envision.

Above all else, shopping for bling should be fun! So, if you’re feeling stressed about it, don’t hesitate to call us and schedule a half-hour accessories appointment. We’re happy to go over your vision and make some recommendations! Happy shopping 🙂
