Design, Color, Style
When it comes to figuring out what design, color, or style to pick, here are a few tips that’ll make it easier for you to decide.
Realize your comfort zone then push past it.
Even though it’s not every day that you wear a wedding dress, chances are you’re more familiar with jewelry. You know what you are comfortable in and what makes you feel pretty, so let that be a baseline for your wedding look – take inspiration from pieces you feel most comfortable in and just turn the gears up a couple of notches. If you love wearing simple studs, take it up a notch and wear studs with clustered diamonds. And if you are the kind of person that likes to experiment, you can go with a colored diamond pair like these pink diamond beauties – the perfect way to make a statement but still keep it simple and elegant.
Remember your personal style takes priority over internet trends.
The wedding industry is filled with trends that are changing constantly, and it’s great to apply the ones that make sense for you. That said, don’t follow a trend that doesn’t feel right for you just because it’s all over the internet. Trends come and go, but your wedding photos and your memories last forever. Make more decisions gleaned from a personal style standpoint and for sentimental reasons; that way, you will always remember your day and feel the beautiful nostalgia of knowing those pieces meant something to you instead of being an exact replica of a social media wedding ad.
