The barely-there sheer layer has an effect that resembles embellished appliques hanging in the air. This signature element adds an air of uniqueness to the dress.

Once you choose your wedding dress, you are only half-done with dressing up for your wedding day. You still have to choose your hairstyle, makeup and most importantly, the accessories to bring together your overall look.
Just like there are thousands of options in wedding dresses, there are plenty of choices in wedding jewelry too. Finding the right balance in size, structure and impact created by the chosen accessories, is important to fashioning your overall wedding day look. Neither should you go overboard with accessories that it competes with your wedding dress, nor should it be too simple that it doesn’t help you to stand out as a bride.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your wedding day jewelry.
Buy your wedding dress first: We always recommend buying your wedding dress first and then choosing matching accessories, as it is easier to do things in this order. The only exception is if you will be wearing heirloom jewelry or have already spent a fortune on jewelry that will be the signature element in creating your look.
Find the right balance: If your wedding dress is simple, choose statement jewelry that enhances your overall look. On the other hand, if you have chosen a richly embellished wedding dress with plenty of detail, opt for simple jewelry so your overall look isn’t cluttered.
Choose jewelry that suits your features: Always try on jewelry before you buy it, so you can make sure that it complements your facial features. Certain styles look better than others on different face shapes. So, make sure that the accessories you choose highlights your most attractive features.
Now you know what you should be looking for, when choosing your wedding jewelry.
With more and more brides preferring themed weddings, it is necessary to find jewelry that will contribute to the style they sport on their wedding day. Let us take a look at some inspiring wedding jewelry ideas for the most popular wedding themes we find these days.
This style is non-traditional, bold and vibrant. It is colorful, wild and has an unconventional edge that is both endearing and unusual, and is significantly different from anything traditional. When you are a Boho bride, your wedding dress will usually be dramatic enough. It isn’t necessary to find matching accessories for your wedding dress, as this style allows you to mix and play with entirely different styles to create your own signature look. Here are some ideas.
Instantly add style to your look with a unique headpiece that screams out your style statement. Feathers, flower crowns, oversize beaded head pieces and colorful headbands are all suitable for this style.
A colorful necklace with a lot of texture, like fabric strips, beads and stones, is a must-have. This will not only add color, it will also be a unique piece.
Prints and patterns appeal to Boho brides immensely, and there are many ways to add these to your ensemble. Consider wearing a earrings with colorful prints to instantly add a pop of color to your face.
Unexpected pieces of jewelry like toe rings, anklets or other foot jewelry are an amazing way to make a statement, especially if your wedding dress just skims your ankles and exposes your dainty feet.
The name says it all—the classic bride prefers timeless trends that never go out of fashion. There is a refined sophistication to this style, and these brides usually have an affinity for pearls and diamonds in simple but stunning designs. Classic wedding dresses feature traditional silhouettes like ball gowns or A-line dresses, with or without sleeves. The makeup is usually quite simple, and the hair is done in simple styles like chignons, buns or simply let down. Here are the jewelry choices that complement this style.
The choice of necklace depends on the neckline of the gown. If the dress features an embellished or high neckline, the necklace can be eliminated. If not, these brides usually prefer a string of pearls or a simple necklace with a stone studded pendant. If the bride opts for color, this can be achieved with gemstones like emeralds, rubies or sapphires.
While some brides choose large studs and dangling earrings decorated with pearls or stones, others prefer to keep it simple with a single stone stud. Basically, aim to strike the right balance between the earring size and necklace. If the necklace is elaborate, it is best to avoid earrings or stick to simpler ones.
Hair accessories like little brooches, scintillating classy headbands or pretty beaded headpieces can be used to dress up your hair in a sophisticated way, especially if you aren’t using much jewelry in the rest of your outfit.
Each vintage era has its distinct characteristics, and your jewelry should go well with the era that has inspired your wedding plans. If you are just aiming for an old-fashioned vibe, there are common elements like lace and pearls that suit almost all the styles. Let us take a look at some samples of what accessories would be suitable for a vintage style wedding dress.
Pearls and stones are a must-have, and the more elaborate the necklace, better it will match the vintage theme. Strings of pearls, like those featured in this picture, will bring the vintage effect alive in your outfit. If you want more drama, club different sized strings of pearls to come up with your own stylish interpretation of a vintage piece. Else search through your mother or grandmother’s jewelry collection to pick out necklaces that were trendy in their days.
Finish off your vintage hair up-do with a vivid headpiece with enough sparkle to make a statement. Whether you choose to place it around your crown, above your bun or as a string on just one side, it is bound to add that finishing touch to the perfect hairstyle.
Add a touch of vintage glam to your face with the help of oversize shiny loops in your ear. The more jazzy they look with shiny stones, the better it will be. With a pair as magnificent as in this picture, you can even skip a necklace, as they are absolute showstoppers.
There are many brides who would have it no other way, than have their nuptials at the beach. Since these weddings are casual, fun and full of the essence of the sand and sea, their dress and accessories should reflect this tone too. While the wedding dress itself should best feature soft, lightweight, breezy fabric, the jewelry can be loud, with plenty of inspiration drawn from the frolicking waves and blue skies that characterize every beach location. Here are a few ideas.
Start with a nautical inspired headband. Here is one with starfish and flowers as blue as the ocean. The best part is that it weaves into the hair seamlessly, so it looks like it is a part of the hairdo. Could it get any better than this?
Pearl earrings and studs are perfect for a beach wedding, as these are associated with the ocean. However, if you want a casual look, go with colorful options like corals or shells in your jewelry, and it will look great. These dangling coral earrings are simply perfect to dress up your white attire with a little pop of color, and it is just apt for a beach wedding.
To go with your coral earrings, get an equally attractive coral necklace. The bright pop of pinkish orange will instantly color your wedding outfit and make you look like a sea princess, all set to be wed where surf meets turf. This coral necklace has a darker tone, and is perfectly complemented by the blue turquoise beads. The silver pendant adds a vintage touch and gives it a beautiful personality.
If there is one wedding where foot jewelry doesn’t look out of place, it has to be a beach wedding. Dress up your pretty feet with beautiful accessories, as you will be trotting through the sand and they will highlight your beautiful feet.
When we think of glamorous, the image that immediately comes to mind is plenty of glitter, sexy outfits and large signature style jewelry. When you choose a dress that has all the elements that make it captivating, you can wear just minimum jewelry to complement it. Take care to not overdo the jewelry, or you can end up looking over-the-top and cluttered. Here are some jewelry options to add a touch of glamour to your wedding day look.
If your wedding dress has a strapless neckline, bring on the bling with a loud and bright necklace. Gold is the ideal metal to use, as it instantly adds more glamour to your look. If not, opt for sparkles with gems in your necklace. Consider big motifs and large pendants for a striking finish. If you have a color theme for your wedding, don’t hesitate to consider a necklace with colored gems for that unique touch.
If an eye-catching necklace doesn’t appeal to you, choose big, bold earrings instead. If you wear your hair in an up do, draw focus to your face with dangling earrings. Instead, if you leave your hair down, a big stud is a better option as it will not get lost within your tresses. Remember to stick to only one statement piece of jewelry; either the earring or a necklace. If you will be wearing both, keep them small, so you don’t look like you belong in a costume parade.
Go bold with a big headpiece if you want to look really glamorous. We think it is most effective when hair pieces are placed on the side of the crown, instead of at the center. If you really want to look glamorous, you can wear a tiara. After all, it isn’t everyday that you can dress up like a princess, and get away with it.
Don’t forget that your fingers and arms can also revel in some extra attention. Consider adding a bright, brilliant bracelet to your ensemble, especially if your dress is strapless and you will be showing off your arms. If not a bracelet, then you should consider a big, statement ring for one of your fingers, that will pop with sparkle. Don’t forget to ask your photographer to spare some extra attention to pictures with your bouquets, and your fingers will get all the glory they deserve.
Finding the jewelry to match your outfit is a critical part of completing your bridal look. With these tips, it should be possible for you to get a start and identify what would suit your style and personality most.

Style is a sophisticated concept, and each woman has her own definition for it.

The fashion world has identified styles based on similarities in patterns, fabrics and color combinations.

So, read on to see the dresses that we have identified as perfect for each of them. And, once you’ve gone through these gorgeous wedding dresses, don’t forget to tell us which of these styles best defines you.
The Boho style is identified as non-traditional and unusual. In this style, you can expect textures and colors in unexpected combinations creating a characteristic gypsy style. The beauty of the Boho style is that it brings together seemingly unrelated elements and carves out a fashion statement of its own. Despite this, it is attractive in it’s own way.
The Mori Lee 6808 is a dress that will be loved by the Boho-style fan. This dress mixes and matches textures in an obvious way, which is why it is unusually attractive. Light, wispy fabric in tiers forms layers in the skirt, while the bodice features lace over the bust and a draped waistband that is replicated in the straps. Perfect for a destination wedding, this is a dress that is light and perfect for an informal setting.
Chic translates into stylish, and here the look is both fashionable and smart. It is a perfect choice for the modern woman with a strong personality, who knows how to rock fashion the right way. In this style you will see both classic and modern elements, with the main feature being that it personifies the confidence of the woman wearing it.
The Mori Lee 5402 features a modern modified A-line silhouette with a stylish sweetheart neckline and artistically placed lace details. The dropped waist is slimming, and the layered skirt has just the right amount of drama. It is stylish, while combining traditional elements with modern and trendy features. The silhouette, neckline and hemline are all perfect for a chic bride.
Classic style refers to timeless details that have always been favored. Classic style dresses usually feature flawless tailoring and fine fabric, that make them elegant and perfect as heirlooms. This is because the dress has features that are never called trendy, but are staples that appeal to all generations without looking dated. This style usually stands out without being cluttered or too glitzy, yet is noticed easily for its finesse and quality of details. Every bride who wants a safe choice for her wedding day, should consider a wedding dress with classic style elements, even if her regular wardrobe doesn’t contain many classic staples.
The Mori Lee 2703, an A-line gown in Duchess satin with fine crystal beading is a stunning example of this style. This dress features exquisite embroidery details along the sweetheart neckline and center of the bodice as well as a basque waistline, which is another classic feature. With a wonderful train, and satin buttons that course all the way down to the end of the train at the back, this dress is just perfect for a formal wedding. The elegant bride who glides down the aisle, will enrapture all the onlookers in this timeless gown.
Dramatic is energetic, flamboyant style that stands out distinctly. The style is flashy and loud, with more than one element that competes for attention. The dress style is elaborate, and the accessories usually bring out the exciting and wild nature of the dress. It can be overwhelming to some, but the woman who loves dramatic style won’t mind the obvious style of the attires that give her an easy and obvious way to be noticed.
Fairytales are the one place where you are bound to find dramatic looks. The dropped waist bodice is embellished with a unique rhinestone and crystal beaded design never seen before. In striking contrast, thick, wispy flange ruffles recreate the waves of the ocean in the skirt. The sweetheart bodice and chapel train are the other characteristic features of this attractive wedding dress.
Dramatic and sexy, with just the right amount of bling, glamorous styles strive to enhance femininity in the most stylish way. Women who like this style do not hesitate to max up on the style factor and wear big and bold features and accessories that dazzle and stun. Glamour can also be done subtly, but this look cannot be mistaken, and this type of glamorous bride will be remembered for the refined sophistication she sported.
The Y11634 Loraina from the Sophia Tolli collection has several elements that make it glamorous. An off-the-shoulder neckline that allows the bride to show off her décolletage and well-toned shoulders is a striking feature. Apart from this, the dress also features a snug fitting trumpet silhouette that courses snugly along the natural curves of the bride’s figure. The tasteful artwork in lace and the brilliance of the crystal embroidery give this dress all that is required to make a statement look. Add to it the illusion style back and the magnificent chapel train, there is no stopping this bride!
Poetic and magnificent, the romantic style features flowers, hearts, ruffles and soft dreamy details that are immensely captivating. Gentle curves, soft lines and details that seamlessly flow from one area to the other, the romantic style is beautiful and appeals to almost everyone. Lace is one detail that is usually associated with romantic styles, and this style emphasizes the feminine features to the maximum extent possible.
The Mori Lee 2724 is an elegant romantic fit and flare gown with luscious lace details and a sparkling heart motif at the bust. The soft details are simply splendid and the soft contrast of lace against the sateen shine of the layers below it make this a stellar design. The sweetheart neckline accentuates the femininity of the bride in this dress, with it softly coursing along the natural curves of the bust. The back details are simple, with a satin button train coursing through the center, all the way to the derriere.
Sexy styles do not have to always expose a lot of skin, although this is the primary factor associated with this style. Deep-cut necklines, daring plunging backs, tight-fitting silhouettes and bare shoulders or legs are all associated with this style. The sexy bride is usually confident and bold, which is why she is comfortable showing off her best assets.
Lady Almog from the My Lady designer collection is the perfect example for sexy bridal style. The deep sweetheart neckline features a deep plunge in the center, and is accompanied by an illusion style bodice that exposes more than the usual amount of skin. This collection allows brides to mix and match the two pieces that form the wedding dress, so you can achieve the look you desire. Sexy dresses are usually great for informal, high-on-style weddings, where the bride wishes to show off her stylish body and be the center of attention.
Traditional is often confused with classic, but there is a significant difference between the two. While classic styles focuses on features that are always trendy, traditional styles focus on conventional designs that are sometimes not really relevant. These are usually very modest dresses and comfortable. It can also focus on simplicity and timeless details that are bound to be a favorite with the older generation.
The Mori Lee 5362 has cap-sleeves, a pleated A-line skirt and a defined waistline; all features that make it a traditional favorite. Although the bodice features a sweetheart neckline, the sheer lace overlay that forms a bateau neckline makes this a modest choice. The dress is charming in it’s own way, but it doesn’t expose much skin nor does it fit to snugly to the natural body shape to be uncomfortable. All in all, it is a safe choice.
This is the girl who would rather wear jeans and slacks than be found in a gown. She is uncomfortable in anything too frilly and feminine, and wouldn’t really mind sporting a pant suit on her wedding day. However, there are plenty of dresses that keep the femininity factor to the required minimum and are smart, making it perfect for the tomboy type.
The Y21504 Ricki from the Sophia Tolli collection is a dress that is smart, with just the right amount of bling on the sleeves and at the gathered waist, to make it interesting. The square neckline is supported with scintillating straps and the fit and flare silhouette is comfortable with the draped layers defining the natural figure but not making it too clingy. The corset back is simple and can be fastened to be comfortably tight or loose, as the bride prefers.
Considered the dark choice in the fashion world, this style is characterized by pale, dark details. Black is an essential color in this style, and though it isn’t usually associated with wedding dresses, modern designers incorporate this factor to create dresses that appeal to the Gothic style bride. This style is also characterized by makeup and accessories that are bold and play on the contrast of extreme dark and light effects.
This is a dress that will most likely please the Gothic bride. With ample black lace details coursing all over the bodice to the dropped waist, the dress emphasizes the contrast between the black and white in an obvious way. The skirt is light and wispy, making the powerful effect of the black in the design more pronounced. The closed-up high neckline and cap sleeves are other factors that make this dress dark and mysterious.
This is a style that brings together contemporary and classic elements in an elegant and impressive way. Sophisticated style is one that can be nailed only by the fashion conscious, who knows her way around mixing and matching various elements that aren’t usually seen together, to craft a distinctive appeal. Quality is an important factor in the sophisticated fashion style. These brides look polished and perfect, and know how to bring together their look using the apt mixing of style elements.
The Mori Lee 2789 lace and satin gown is a sophisticated wedding dress that brings together the sheen of satin with the soft flutter of lace harmoniously. The illusion neckline with beaded necklace details and the embellished sweetheart bodice instantly add style to the upper torso. The fit and flare silhouette is figure-flattering, while the lustrous skirt has subtle glamour.
