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.
