How To Select Wedding Accessories For Your Bridesmaids

Your wedding party offers you the support and company you need on your big day. If you don’t like attention, they are the perfect distraction. And for that reason, they need to look amazing on your wedding day. Hopefully, you have a team of ladies who are easy to work with. The last thing you need is something (read someone) else to worry about as you plan for your wedding. Yet, you also want them to look great and be in their element. Find out how to bring out the best in them while still meeting your goals.

DON’T DICTATE

Ever heard of the word “bridezilla”? You can easily become one if you overthink your wedding details and make unrealistic demands. Or end up ordering everyone around, oops! But then where do you find the balance. Try this trick:

A lot of brides and grooms debate if they should give their bridal party freedom to make style choices.

Some think it’s best to dictate every aspect of their look. Others choose not to be so strict with their fashion rules…

But, depending on how they like to dress and what type of jewelry they prefer, that could go wrong for a few reasons.

Your junior bridesmaid could show up wearing a casual layered necklace. Your MOH might try to steal the show in a glitzy Swarovski crystal statement necklace. Your best friend from college might decide to rock a gold choker while everyone else opts for a simple bar necklace.

If you don’t lay down some rules early on, you could end up with a big old mess of white gold, rose gold, and sterling silver in all different looks and styles.

And this is what makes jewelry gifts perfect. It’ll send the message of “Thanks for being a part of my wedding” rather than “I don’t trust your taste in jewelry.” Read more at Bella Bridesmaids

JEWELRY

It may be difficult to choose jewelry gifts for your girls since they have different personalities. But there are some considerations you shouldn’t miss out on.

“If you never wear earrings, let’s not use your wedding day as the first time you bring out a statement earring,” explains Hartman.

Instead, take note of the pieces you feel most comfortable in and turn those up a notch. Never leave home without a stud? Find a more formal version with multiple stones. Love a good arm candy stack? Layer two glitzier bracelets of the same style. Another approach: think back on outfits you’ve worn and loved for other formal occasions—such as other people’s weddings—and pick jewelry pieces in a similar vein.  Read more at Brides

If one or two of your girls don’t wear earrings at all, the same rule applies. Let them be, but find something else that’ll enhance their looks.
