wedding jewellery

Wedding season is here and we couldn’t be more excited! Jewellery can be a great way to add interest to your wedding dress or accessorise your guest attire. In this article, we will be answering the age old question, ‘what kind of jewellery should I wear to a wedding?’. 

 

What is Traditional Wedding Jewellery?

Have you got a ceremony to attend this wedding season? Never fear, we are here to help. Whether you are the bride, part of the wedding party or simply a guest, there are some traditional types of jewellery for such occasions. 

With summer nearly here, and wedding season on the horizon, everyone hopes for a clear, sunny day for their wedding. We recommend simple patterns with soft colours and shimmers. You want your chosen jewellery pieces to sparkle and shine in the sun – as well as match your outfit. Some great ideas for perfect wedding day jewellery would be studded earrings, a delicate pendant or a simple bracelet. 

 

What is the Traditional Jewellery for a Bride to Wear?

In western culture, it’s very common for a bride to wear pared-back jewellery, including a pair or small earrings and necklace. When it comes to rings, a bride should only wear their engagement ring and, after the ceremony, a wedding band. It is tradition for a bride to wear a platinum or silver piece with a white dress and gold with an ivory dress, but these days anything goes, and mixing metals is far more acceptable than it used to be.
