Wedding Wednesday: The Right Jewelry for your Dress

No doubt, the most important element of your wedding day will be your dress (except for your groom that is!) It reflects the tone, formality and mood for your wedding and ensures that all eyes are on you on your big day. So what’s a girl to do when faced with accessorizing the most important outfit of her life? Turn to Raymond Lee Jewelers, of course, bridal jewelry experts.

If your gown is…

 Strapless

Monique Lhuillier

Play up an elegant neck with stunning drop earrings and an up-do. This is the perfect opportunity to incorporate color into your wedding day look with any number of colored stones. Complete the look with a bracelet in coordinating stones. The same rules apply to one-shouldered gowns as well.

Sweetheart

Allure Couture

A unique pendant necklace on a short, delicate chain is a timeless way to let your gown shine, and won’t be hidden if you decide to wear your hair in beachy waves or retro curls. Likewise, a textured, thick collar necklace will perfectly offset the gentle curve of this gown’s neckline.

Bold brides wanting to show off their décolletage must adorn all that skin with a necklace. Pair an intricate drop necklace with a chic satin gown, or a lacy number. Add sparkling studs and a simple, feminine bracelet to complete this look.

Princess Kate’s return to fuller coverage has sparked new waves of bridal fashion trends, as has the couture world’s new attention to the beauty of the back. We say that for these styles, brides should take the opportunity to don stunning dangling earrings, as long as you’re comfortable with, and pair with a gorgeous and unique bracelet.

The best metals to pair with this color are platinum, white gold and silver, as yellow gold or rose gold may look too brassy in contrast to your snow white gown.

If you’re a bride who craves a throwback to the heyday of 50’s fem, 20’s art deco or 60’s mod, consider adding to your gown’s one-of-a-kind vibe with a unique brooch, hair piece, or statement necklace. Try to incorporate either contemporary jewels or pieces from a different period than your dress to avoid a costume look.

If your gown hasn’t changed a stitch since you first imagined it when you were 6 and every detail of your wedding will ooze timeless charm, stick to the bridal standby’s of diamonds and pearls. You’ll love your look, on the day of your wedding and in photos, no matter how many years pass beyond your big day.

The most important part of choosing your wedding day jewelry is being true to yourself. Your wedding day will be the happiest day of your life, especially if you’re 100% in love…with your accessories.

Kate Middleton’s Gown Reminds Time Magazine of Grace Kelly

In the highlights of the Royal Wedding from Friday, Kate Middleton is clearly the epitome of grace, poise and a genuine classic charm. It therefore comes as no surprise that Feifei Sun recognized below the connection between Grace Kelly and the Royal Newlywed, Kate Middleton…

Kate Middleton’s white gown, designed by Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, reminded us of the wedding dress of another princess: Grace Kelly.

The American actress and Princess of Monaco‘s gown had a high collar top, long lace sleeves and full skirt. It has since become one of history’s most iconic wedding dresses and one widely copied. Middleton picked a similar silhouette for her wedding today, although her gown’s low v-neckline gave the new princess a more modern feel. And she isn’t the only one to have take fashion inspiration from Kelly—Ivanka Trump wore a Kelly-inspired dress designed by Vera Wang to her 2009 wedding to Jared Kushner.

P.S. The sweetest moment was when Prince William turned around to take Kate’s hand before they went inside from the balcony, and she glances back just for a moment with a blushing smile. I became very sappy when we watched the footage… Who doesn’t love a love story, right? Be Well Everybody!  –Alexandra at Raymond Lee Jewelers
