The earrings you choose for your wedding day play a huge role in determining your wedding day look. The right pair will complement your dress, and enhance your facial features by creating the right impact.
When choosing your earrings, there are a few things to keep in mind. Some earrings look better than others, for a specific type of wedding dress. Let us find out what they are.
Vintage style wedding dresses
Typical traditional wedding dresses have a timeless elegance that is best complemented by vintage style earring designs. Silver and gold earrings in classic designs look good, as do earrings with intricate stone work and floral designs. Natural pearl earrings also work with these dresses, either in the form of drops or studs. Colorful gemstones highlighted with white stones along the borders are another good choice.
Mermaid gowns and sheath silhouettes
These contemporary designs are very stylish, and can be enhanced with matching modern earring designs. It is a good idea to match the stone color on the earrings to the embellishments on the dress. Sparkling stones in different colors work well, but it is best to go for a silver or clear base instead of gold. Similarly, white cultured pearls work better than natural pearls, when worn with modern dress silhouettes.
Heavily embellished ball gowns
Most ball gowns feature intricate detailing on the bodice, and an elaborate skirt. This pattern is usually very dressy, and it isn’t advisable to add too many accessories and clutter the look. Simple stud earrings or long drop earrings that are simple, but elegant are the ideal choice. If the dress features an embellished neckline or a high collar, you can cut the sparkle from your earring to avoid a crowded look. Stud earrings are also a good choice for women who don’t usually wear earrings, but wish to find one to complete their wedding outfit. With studs, you have the flexibility of choosing a size that is appropriate for your face.
Modern fit and glamorous gowns
When your wedding look is glamorous with a fit and flare gown, ruffles in the skirt, an off-the-shoulder neckline or a stylish A-line skirt, your accessories should also accentuate the effect. Long or short statement earrings, with plenty of sparkle can give you a dressy edge. Just remember that the more bling your earring has, you have to balance it out in your necklace, so you don’t look over the top. Stone-studded hoops, crystal detail earrings and tassels are all good ideas for a Hollywood-inspired wedding day look.
Wedding dresses with short hemlines
The shorter hemline is associated with casual weddings, and so classic earring patterns may not look good with them. The two obvious choices that do work, are thin, long earrings and big bling studs. The latter goes well with layered frocks, while the former is a better choice when your dress is fitted all the way.
