Brides-to-be have a hard enough time picking out the venue and the all-important wedding dress, not to mention all the other smaller details that people tend to forget such as the menu, table decor, wedding favors, and of course the bridal jewellery accessories for the bride and her bride tribe!
To ease the stress of endless research, we’ve compiled your go-to list for all sorts of bridal hair do’s and suggested earring styles that suit each.
First thing is first, you can’t begin selecting jewellery and accessories without having picked out a dress and a veil (that is if you choose to wear a veil).The perfect pair of earrings should complement both your dress and your hair and you can’t really shop for earrings without knowing the overall look for your big day.
So now that you’ve got your dress, let’s take a look at some popular bridal looks.
For a Chignon Hairstyle
Brides who opt for a stylish chignon look, that is an elegant knot or coil on the back of your head, look best in drop style earrings. Drop earrings like these from the California designers at Tacori, complement many face shapes and provide delicate accents for that space in between the the ear and the neck. Made from gleaming 18-karat white gold, these drops model #FE67165 feature dazzling round cut diamond center stones and a flurry of smaller diamonds.
For a Side Braid
A very modern look, such as side braids, deserve modern style earrings. Our top fine jewellery look for elegant braids are diamond-adorned hoop earrings. Back in fashion, nearly all of our favorite designers are creating stellar diamond hoop earrings. Among one of the most popular, are these (model # FH5) from Henri Daussi. Unlike many diamond diamond hoops, these are not a continuous pave of diamonds, but instead feature an elegant spacing between diamonds to showcase the precious metal used. For added glamour, try rose gold. Trending today, rose gold flatters all skin types and has an undeniable timeless appeal.
For a Half Updo Hairstyle
For lovely flowing half updo’s, look for classic stud style earrings. Since it’s for your wedding, nothing beats the brilliance and sparkle of diamond studs, such as these beautiful Hearts on Fire Beloved Stud Earrings. It’s hard to go wrong with a classic diamond stud, but for those who want a unique look to their studs, the above earrings have a floral-inspired diamond design. Using “the world’s most perfectly cut diamonds,” Hearts on Fire has crafted these beauties out of 18-karat white gold.
Long Flowing Hair
A clean, flowy look of long free-flowing hair is an accessory onto itself and requires little to no additional adornment. For this hairstyle pick smaller style earrings. Our pick goes to these marvelous diamond huggies (model #ZE144) from Zeghani. Made from 14-karat white gold, their half-pave and gleaming white gold gently hug the bride’s ears and create a soft look just like her hair. Huggie style earrings have the added benefit of not getting tangled up in your hair.
For totally romantic updo, pick earrings that highlight your face, such as sophisticated drop earrings. Slightly longer than the previous drop earrings we have featured, Michael M‘s diamond drops (model #MKOB169) are a wonderful option for young brides. While an updo draws attention to the top of your head, these drops will bring the attention back onto your face. For an updo, you want to stay away from really ornate earrings so these Michael M earrings are delicate enough while beautiful enough to still make a great impression.
Some other tips to keep in mind while choosing your earrings are women with more petite face shapes might want to stay away from overly big statement earrings instead choosing always flattering pearl studs or diamond studs.
These are just some of our suggestions for your big day. The choice of what to wear (or not to wear) is entirely up to you! The most important thing is to feel great because when you do, you typically look your best self!
