Pearls are one of the most classic wedding accessories in the market. They look regal, elegant, and timeless—qualities that all brides would love to emulate. It’s no surprise that women opt for this jewelry on their special day!
In most cases, pearls can show off a woman’s personality or even act as their “something old” or “something new.” No matter what the purpose is, it’s bound to be fit for the occasion. If you’re feeling the tiniest bit unsure about wearing these beauties, you came to the right place.
Here are foolproof ways to wear pearls on your wedding day.
- Consider your wedding theme
Your wedding’s theme and venue can dictate what you and your guests should wear. While pearls are versatile and can fit well with most themes, they do still come in different shapes and sizes. For instance, you wouldn’t want to wear large, dramatic pearls to a laid-back beach wedding—that look would be more fitted for a cathedral. If you’re going for something more minimalist, you can wear smaller pearls in your ensemble, and so on.
- Match it with your dress
Consider the neckline and fabric of your dress. These things play an important factor in accessorizing your overall bridal look. If you have a high neckline, it’s better to have your hair up and wear dangling pearl earrings. If you have a low neckline, you can wear a pearl necklace with half-up, half-down hair. Pearls go well with lace, chiffon, satin, tulle, and satin.
- Add a pop of color
Pearls don’t only come in white! If you’re feeling a little bold and experimental, but you still want to wear pearls on your special day, you’ll be pleased to know that you have other options. There are many different colored pearls in the market varying in size—choose one that speaks out to you the most.
- Incorporate it in the dress
If you’re not crazy about wearing too many wedding accessories on your special day, you can add the pearls as details in your gown. Ask your seamstress to stitch pearl beading at the hem or back of your dress depending on your taste. Similarly, you can request to look for something like this in a bridal dress shop.
- Know your budget
Last but not least, you should check how much room you have to splurge. Some pearls are set in other gems, increasing their value. Size and sheen also affect how much it’s going to retail for. It’s generally an investment to buy pearl jewelry as its value will likely not depreciate over time if you take good care of it. However, you can choose to borrow as well. Pearls are also favorite hand-me-downs due to their enduring quality.
Here Comes the Bride
There you have it—you’re all set to select your wedding pearls! Remember: The most important thing is that you feel like you’re the most beautiful girl in the room. Ask for advice from professional jewelers or your fiancé to help you look for quality gems, but listen to your heart when it comes to what you feel most confident in. Whichever you choose, you’re guaranteed to look stunning as long as you’re happy with the way you look. Have fun planning your bridal style!
