How to Choose Colors for Your Bridesmaids’ Jewelry on Your Wedding Day

When designing jewelry, the sky is the limit as far as color choices, stones, shapes and over-all design. But just like a cherry on a sundae or the star on the top of a Christmas tree, no outfit is complete without jewelry. I would start with making a choice on your bridesmaids dresses.

Take your Maid of Honor with you to help you make a decision because usually there are more choices of bridesmaid dresses than there are Wedding gowns in the boutiques. This will help you get some feedback as far as what will work for all of the girls and she can also try some of them on, since they normally look very different on a person than they do on the rack.

Once you have made a decision, make sure that you get a swatch of the fabric so that you have a true reference to the color of the gowns. I would not recommend trying to match the tones in the jewelry by memory, especially if you’d like to go with a similar color scheme. This simple, and not to mention free, tip will make life much easier in the long run.

The next thing you will need to consider is what sort of stones you’d like your girls to wear on the big day. There are quite a lot of choices when it comes to this subject, you can go with semi-precious stones, crystals, pearls or even just a simple pendant on a satin cord. The best place to start is with style of the dresses, taking into consideration the color and the cut of the dress itself.

Then you can decide if you’d like to go with one type and shape of stone for example, crystals or pearls, you can have a single strand or you can also go with a layered look of two or three stands of the same stone. I personally find this very effective and it’s also nice because if you go with a necklace and bracelet that are of a simpler design, your girls will get much more use out of them in the future.

If you are having trouble finding something that will compliment your dresses closely, don’t worry, I find that if you go with a mono-chromatic scheme and put several shades together that are in the same family it will give you a little more interest in the jewelry and you don’t have to be so concerned with having a perfect match. You can view a sampling of Swarovski Crystal colors using a Swarovski Crystal color chart. Also, don’t be afraid to consider other color options when working with hues in this manner.

For example, you may find that with a pale green dress, shades of citrine or yellow topaz will look very nice, or even shades of blue. It all depends on the undertones in the fabric. The last thing to consider is the shapes of the stones that you wish to use. You could go with a single size, like tiny pearls on layered strings for a very feminine and classic look. Or you may want to go with several shapes and sizes that when put together, will make a pattern and create some interest like a Swarovski Crystal Round and Bicone Necklace, this can be very dramatic or just slight variations in the shapes.

So you can’t have the wedding you want unless you know what you want, right?
