7 Pairs of Exquisite Bridal Earrings to Complete Your Look

View these beautiful styles worn by real brides on their wedding days.

Once you’ve said yes to the dress, it’s time to choose your bridal jewelry. Most brides already know that they may need forgo wearing a necklace if the gown has an intricate neckline. But as long as your ears are pierced, earrings always help to complete a wedding-day look!

Dramatic earrings can add sparkle to a relaxed look, while smaller studs complement a carefully put together style. If the two-dress trend seems like too much for your personal taste, switching out your jewelry after the ceremony is a great way to change up your look. As with all wedding jewelry, earrings provide a wonderful opportunity to wear heirlooms, which can come in any style.
