Choosing the perfect bridal earrings is almost as important as choosing the right gown. There are countless bridal jewelry sets to choose from, but the most commonly chosen styles include either diamonds or pearls. If you’ve narrowed down your wedding earrings to either one or the other and can’t commit to just one, then perhaps the following ideas will help to narrow it down even more.
- Let Your Dress Guide You: If your dress is simple, with little to no frills then your options are wide open. You aren’t limited to just diamonds, or just pearls, and you certainly aren’t limited to only simple designs. The simpler your dress, the bigger your jewelry can be. For example, if you have an empire waist strapless white wedding gown then you have the option to go for chandelier diamond earrings. If your dress is simple, you also have the freedom to choose earrings that combine pearls and diamonds. For example, diamond earrings that dangle into a pearl would be stunning when paired with a simple wedding gown.
- Think of Your Personal Style: If you are a low-key, laid-back kind of gal then pearls most likely fit your personality better than diamonds. Pearls aren’t as flashy as diamonds, and have a subdued quality to them since they don’t demand a lot of attention, unless they are large pearls. If you are a retro gal then pearls are also a fitting choice.
- Time of Wedding: If you still can’t decide then let the time of your wedding make the decision for you. Pearls are a better choice for a wedding that takes place before 6pm, and diamonds are more appropriate for evening weddings.
