When choosing earrings or a necklace for your wedding day – or choosing not to wear any at all – a bride has to keep in mind her the neckline of her gown and hairstyle. But the right bracelet is always appropriate for bridal style, as it is unlikely to directly compete with your dress. Many will choose to wear a matching jewelry set for their nuptials, but a bracelet is far enough away from your other pieces that it’s easy to get away with a separate sparkler for your wrist. Whether you’re going for a subtle or flashy look, there is sure to be an option for you.
One of the best parts about wedding jewelry is that it’s both a great way to include family heirlooms in your outfit and unlike your dress and veil, new jewelry purchased for your wedding can be worn again and again, each time reminding you of your beloved nuptials.
