How to choose wedding earrings

We often have brides come into our store, see our 1000’s of designs and ask “How do I choose?” My next question is asking if they’re an earring person.

If you are an earring person, then make it a feature. Forget a necklace and have fun with it. If not, go simple and classic – choose something you’ll wear again.

Your earrings will be front and centre of most of your photos so make sure you are comfortable and love your earrings.

Simply put: choose what you LOVE! If you do this you’ll pull the look off and be confident wearing them, not to mention you’ll want to wear them again.

Rules of thumb for Weddings Accessories

People often make the mistake of not accessorising accordingly.

If you have a busy dress, it’s all the more reason to accessorise. It’s all about balance. Under accessorise and people will be focused on looking at you from your neck down.

For a simple gown, there is a fine line between dressing it up, to the point where accessorises completely stealing the show.

Always start from the top down. Something in the hair is a must, even if it is by adding a few simple crystal bobby pins to make your hair sparkle lightly, or by going all the way with a princess tiara! Something in the hair just polishes off the bridal look.

Earrings are in almost every photo, not to mention an accessory staple. If your dress is busy, opt for more of a feature earring whether a drop or a stud so that it can stand out in its own right. Forget the necklace – this way there is a break from earring to dress and both can compliment, rather than clutter.

To necklace or not to necklace?

This isn’t a must. If you wear a necklace every day and would feel ‘naked’ without one then definitely wear one on your big day. The last thing you want is to feel bare and unnatural.


This often gets forgotten. A bracelet, just like your hairpiece, really finishes off your accessorises nicely. Don’t be afraid to go a little bigger on the bracelet, as it sits low and out of central view, so it works hard to be noticed. Not having one will make your arms look bare. Besides, you must agree that having your wrists adorned with something sparkly will look amazing when you sign that all important marriage certificate.
