Wedding Earrings: How to find the Perfect Pair

The wedding day is the perfect opportunity to combine your personal style and sense of self with something that’s also suitable for wearing in front of all your friends and family. This includes choosing accessories for the big day, like beautiful wedding earrings.

Each woman has her own sense of style, so there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer to what bridal earrings you should wear on your special day. Instead, you can choose from a variety of styles, materials and colours to find something that suits you as an individual – not just as someone who is getting married.

If you’re struggling to find the perfect pair or are looking for some helpful tips, here are some ideas on what to look for when buying wedding earrings:

Selecting the right earrings for your budget

Whether you are purchasing a set of wedding earrings for yourself or your future bride, you should be aware that this type of jewellery is an investment that you will treasure for the rest of your life, not just for the special day.

You can borrow pricey wedding earrings from a family member if your budget does not permit purchasing them. Wearing wedding jewellery that belonged to your parents and other family members is a beautiful way to respect your roots. Additionally, brides might prefer to buy from a jewellery store or online. However, you might opt for a pair of earrings that match your engagement ring if you want a matching set for your big day.

Make sure your entire ensemble flows while choosing your bridal earring set. Wedding earrings should accent the dress rather than being the main attraction of the ensemble. If you choose the correct pair you’ll feel amazing. And keep in mind that you may always purchase other pairs, just like you would purchase a pair for yourself. You can always choose to wear a basic set of earrings on the big day if you don’t want to go excessive.

Choose the right style for you

Today, there is a trend for practically anything. While it is quite fine to follow trends that you find appealing, your wedding appearance should reflect your personality rather than merely the current fashion. Instead of saying “I chose them because they were popular on Instagram,” you want to be able to respond, “Those earrings were significant to me” when reflecting on your memorable day. Make judgments based on the sentimental value and the things you wish to remember fondly. More than just adornment, earrings become a part of your narrative.

Only you are capable of determining what feels right for you and what doesn’t. Take it up a notch and start there! If wearing little more than a couple of studs is your idea of basic elegance, try a pavé look covered with gems. A pair of diamond chandelier-style earrings are ideal for sheer glamour factor. Find the earrings  that you feel best represent your unique aesthetic, then use that look as inspiration for your wedding. You can also match the gems with your wedding theme colour with red ruby or a green emerald.

Consider Your Hairstyle

The hairstyle and neckline of a bride will frame her appearance. How are you going to style your hair to make your earrings pop? Your earrings’ level of visibility will depend on this. The style of earrings that suit your face the best depends greatly on the length of your hair.

Consider a drop style if you want to wear your long, volumized hair down or to the side, hanging off one shoulder. The secret to displaying your earrings with longer hair is that you want to be able to see them in pictures. Here, we advise wearing longer earrings to stand out!

Statement studs look great with updos or short hair. For example, this look would be enhanced by a birdcage veil, especially if you prefer the retro style from the 1940s, which is unquestionably making a comeback.

Choose the right earrings for your neckline

Earrings shouldn’t compete with a bride’s outfit; they should enhance it. A neckline with an off-the-shoulder design emphasises the neck and shoulders. The ideal technique to keep this area open and highlight your neckline is with statement studs.

A low back or plunging neckline conveys elegance and gives off a sensuous vibe. To make your earrings stand out and emphasise the neckline of your dress, think about longer drops instead of wearing a necklace.

Depending on how adorned your dress is, high necklines look good with pearl studs or longer drops. Choose the pearl studs if you want to be on the safe side. The pinnacle of classic style and sophistication is a pearl.

Sweetheart necklines provide a wealth of styling options. One of the most adaptable necklines to use is this one. Here, your décolletage is the centre of attention, so your earrings should make a statement. Here, you are free to go all out and select longer chandelier-style earrings to go with your neckline.

Frame Your Face

Consider the shape of your face and how you can use bridal accessories to your advantage once you know how your earrings will anchor your appearance and the mood you’re going for! There are two straightforward principles to follow since the type of earrings you select might affect how your face appears. The earrings should be shorter or rounder the longer your face is. The length of the earrings increases with facial width.

Choose studs or hoops to draw attention to the width of your face if you have a long face. Choose a lengthy drop design or chandelier drops for a wide face to make it appear thinner. If you don’t want to appear bloated in your shots, avoid wearing hoops.
