Choosing the Right Necklace for Your Wedding Day

Updated: Sep 13, 2023


A wedding day is a perfect occasion to highlight your style and elegance, and a carefully chosen necklace can elevate your bridal look. However, finding the right necklace to complement your dress and make you feel special can be daunting. In this blog post, I will guide you through choosing the perfect necklace for your wedding day.

Consider Your Dress Neckline:

The neckline of your wedding dress plays a significant role in determining the type of necklace that will enhance your overall look. I will discuss different dress necklines, such as sweetheart, V-neck, and halter, and recommend the necklace styles that work best with each.

  • Strapless or Off-Shoulder: For these necklines, statement necklaces that sit close to the neck or long earrings can be a great choice. They help to draw attention to the neckline and shoulders.

  • Sweetheart: Refined, dainty necklaces that sit close to the neck can complement the sweetheart neckline beautifully.

  • V-Neck: Choose a necklace that follows the V shape to accentuate the neckline.

  • Square: Chokers or short necklaces work well with square necklines. They help to enhance the geometric shape of the neckline.

  • Round: Pearl necklaces or earrings can be a lovely choice for round necklines. They add a touch of elegance and softness to the overall look.

  • One-Shoulder: Statement earrings and bracelets are recommended for one-shoulder dresses. They help to balance the asymmetry of the neckline.

  • Halter: Subtle earrings are recommended if the halter dress is adorned with lace or crystals.

Otherwise, statement earrings can create a stunning look.

Matching Metals and Gemstones:

Coordinating your necklace with your engagement ring, earrings, and other accessories will help create a beautiful, harmonious bridal look. If you haven’t got your “something blue” sorted yet, perhaps consider a necklace with sapphires or aquamarines.

Statement vs. Delicate:

Deciding between a statement necklace that steals the show or a delicate piece that adds a touch of elegance is a personal choice; perhaps look at your favourite pieces of jewellery that you like to wear already and see how statement or delicate they are.

Choosing the right necklace for your wedding day and staying true to your own will create your dream bridal ensemble. By considering your dress neckline, matching metals and gemstones, experimenting with different lengths and layering options, and deciding between a statement or delicate piece, you'll find the perfect necklace that enhances your natural beauty and completes your bridal look.
