Wedding Necklaces for Brides Everywhere

Most times a necklace is all it takes to put the finishing touch on your wedding day look. While other accessories can complement your attire, they often come with drawbacks. Earrings might tangle with your hair or come off, and bracelets can be cumbersome and intrusive. A necklace, though, is a worry-free accessory, especially if you’re only wearing one. If you are, however, guessing how to style your necklace alongside other accessories, we have some insider tips to help you create a cohesive appearance and circumvent any complications.

Bridal Pearl Necklace

Incorporating the soft, iridescent sheen of pearls into your wedding day is the perfect nod to a pure and everlasting love. If you’re a June bride, a pearl necklace is an easy choice, as pearls are the birthstone for the month. Ask to dig through your mother’s or grandmother’s jewelry boxesyou may find a set of pearls that fulfills both your Something Old and Something Borrowed.

Diamond Wedding Necklace

Diamonds are a bride’s best friend, and a diamond necklace is one you can wear long after your wedding day. If your dress is minimalist, you have the flexibility to choose a more elaborate diamond necklace. If your gown is embellished with beadwork, embroidery, or lace, a delicate chain with a single diamond will supplement beautifully without overwhelming the details. Strive for elegance without excessive flashiness to guarantee the focus remains on you and the dress itself.

Something Blue Wedding Necklace

A tale as old as time, not to be overlooked, especially if it fits the schema of your wedding. Sapphire, aquamarine, and blue topaz are some of the many blue jewels in our collection of precious gemstone necklaces. When styling a blue gemstone necklace, consider matching it with other blue gemstone accessories. But, be mindful not to overdo it. Less is often more when it comes to bridal jewelry and over-accessorizing can lead to a cluttered look. Select a few key pieces that complement your dress rather than wearing necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings all at once.

Lariat Wedding Necklace

Lariat necklaces are particularly stunning with plunging or v-neck gowns because they mirror the neckline’s shape. For a backless dress, try draping the lariat down your back for a dramatic, unexpected twist. The fabric and style of your dress can also influence how you style your lariat necklace. For instance, a flowing, bohemian dress pairs beautifully with a more relaxed, loosely tied lariat. Ease the daytonight transition by layering your lariat necklace with shorter necklaces that you can shed as the day progresses.

Designer Wedding Necklace

You can’t go wrong with a designer necklace. The originality of the designs can set you apart from the norm. Though, try to avoid any visible branding that can detract from your aesthetic. Rahaminov, Roberto Coin, and Mikimoto are just a few posh brands with necklaces that scream “bride.”

Bridal Choker Necklace

If your dress is simple, but by no means plain, and you want to draw more attention, accessorizing with a choker necklace can accomplish just that. A choker is most practical with an updo hairstyle; it accentuates the necklace and neckline while preventing tangles.

Bridal Cross Necklace

A cross necklace is a meaningful ode to faith for your upcoming nuptials, especially if you’re getting married in a church. A diamond or gold cross necklace can deepen the spiritual significance of your union. We only suggest that you keep your jewelry within the same metal family e.g., all white gold. Mismatched metals can create a disjointed appearance. 

If you really want to make sure your necklace stays in place all day, apply a small amount of eyelash glue where you want it to hold. This way, you won’t need to worry about adjusting it for photos.
