Classic Jewellery Options For Brides

Finding accessories which are understated to match your wedding dress are often few and far between. For most brides, delicate earrings, minimal bracelets, and fine jewellery are the best options since they don’t take the focus away from the main piece, which is of course the wedding dress.

We have picked out a few favourite styles which are perfect for the bride who wants to add a finishing touch to her entire look.

Pearls

Stick to basic pearls if you want to keep your look fairly minimal, and can only choose one piece of jewellery to wear. Not only are pearls an investment, but you can also wear them after your wedding has passed. They never go out of style!

Tear-drop earrings

For a statement piece of jewellery, you can’t go past a pair of tear-drop earrings. These are almost an essential if you choose to wear your hair in a classic updo. They became the main focus of your accessories, and can even be worn by women without pierced ears.

Headband

An embellished headband is one of the easiest ways to transform your look, and keep hair neat and tidy throughout the wedding! This is also an amazing option for women with a front fringe, since it will keep it in place – regardless of windy weather.

Dainty necklaces

If your wedding dress is strapless, then a dainty necklace or choker is the best way to accentuate your décolletage. Stick to something simple such as an infinity sign or your initials, since it’s a nice way to tie everything together.

Although sterling silver is most popular, rose gold and gold pieces are also trendy at the moment, and available at almost every single budget.

Ear cuff

Another popular option of the last few years are classic ear cuffs. Australian designer Ryan Storer creates a number of bespoke pieces which are suitable for both brides and the maid of honour. To highlight this look, keep hair parted onto one side, and clip back to emphasise the ear cuff at all times.

Birdcage Veils

Wedding veils date back to ancient times when the Greeks wore them to protect the bride from evil spirits while in medieval times they were worn to symbolise chastity. Nowadays they are worn purely for fashion and rightly so.  But deciding whether you’re going to wear a veil or not can be difficult enough, let alone having to choose which type you’re going to wear.  Blusher?  Elbow?  Flyaway?  Cathedral?  The possibilities are endless.

Many brides decide against wearing a veil, perhaps because they see them as old fashioned.  But as we all know, certain styles quite often come back into fashion and that is particularly true for the birdcage veil, first gaining popularity in the 1940’s.  They’re popular because they don’t cover up your hairstyle, they are simple yet elegant and they can be very cost effective.

So here we take a look at some of the best birdcage veils in fashion at the moment.:

For a slight twist on the traditional birdcage veil, team it with a small cap and some dainty feathers for this exquisite full face veil which can be completely removed for the reception if need be.

If you don’t want the trouble of fiddling around with your veil when it comes to kissing your  husband, consider a birdcage veil that covers half the face only.  This veil is neatly attached to the headband so it’s easily removed after the ceremony, leaving the bridal headband perfectly in place.

This veil covers just the eyes and is gathered at the back underneath the bun.  Just a few diamantes dotted around the base, matching the earrings, make this veil incredibly simple, yet stunning.

The combination of a small cap, flowers and feathers make this veil rather extravagant and it could easily double as a fascinator if you’re attending the races some time after your wedding.  Most brides don’t get to wear their bridal attire more than once, but this type of veil would be suitable for many occasions.

This modest birdcage veil is attached to the bridal clip and once again the netting can be removed for the reception, leaving the hairpiece still in place.  It’s a simple touch but distinguishes the bride from the other guests.
