Therefore, if you are on a budget, it may be prudent to go for inexpensive bridesmaid jewelry to reduce the cost. Since, wedding jewelry for bridesmaids need to complement the brides dress, if the bride is wearing diamonds, bridesmaids can wear crystal bridesmaid jewelry instead to keep the cost manageable.Selecting the bridesmaids dress is the first step in buying bridesmaids jewelry sets.
The bridesmaid’s jewelry will essentially have to complement the dress first. Next, the jewelry should also complement the overall theme of the wedding. Start working outwards from the brides dress, working with colors and material to chose a theme and look. Once this step is done, buying bridesmaid jewelry will become easy.When it comes to color, wedding jewelry for bridesmaids can either be of the same color scheme or of a contrasting color scheme that complements the overall theme. For instance, if the theme is white, it can be complemented by crystal bridesmaid jewelry, pearl bridesmaid jewelry or even gold bridesmaid jewelry. Otherwise, one can go for contrasting colors like pink bridesmaid jewelry, brown bridesmaid jewelry and even black bridesmaid jewelry.The style of the bridesmaids’ jewelry should complement the overall theme of the wedding. Keep it elegant and romantic as far styling goes. Contrast styling does not really work too well in this case. Chunky jewelry works only when the overall theme demands it e.g. period theme.
Additionally, it is better to consult the bridesmaids about their own preference as well.Since bridesmaid jewelry gifts will need to be bought in multiple sets, you can either pick up multiple numbers of the same jewelry or buy them as individual complete sets. Your starting point should be the dress or more specifically, the neckline. For instance, dresses with halter neck do not need a necklace to accessorize it. Plunging necklines, off-shoulders etc. will need a necklace. The necklace should end before the fabric starts. Elegant gold or silver necklaces with heart pendants are very suitable as they complement all dresses and there is no risk of outshining the bride’s jewelry. Strings of pearl and chokers are also great bridesmaid accessory. They are simple yet elegant.
