It’s been an agonising wait for couples everywhere and we’ve missed them on our social calendars, but finally weddings are allowed to take place. It’s easy to feel a little rusty on wedding guest etiquette after all this time away. Fascinators? Diamonds? Statement jewellery?
We’ve put together this guide on how to style your jewellery for the wedding season.
Avoid Bold Colourful Jewellery
You’re not looking to attract attention as a wedding guest. The bride and groom- well let’s face it, the bride, is the main event. So with that in mind, avoid oversized, very bold jewellery. Opt instead for pieces that elevate and match your outfit as opposed to make you stand out in the crowd. A few layered necklaces are great for a day to night wedding. You can play around with some delicate chains and add in a statement pendant such as our Marissa Sunburst Pendant Necklace.
Pearls are Always Suitable
Gone are the days when a set of pearls are the domain of the lady’s village sewing circle. There are some gorgeous fashion pearl jewellery options available now, and they are perfect for a summer wedding- they’re always look so sophisticated. Even if it’s a less traditional wedding, pearls are the perfect wedding guest jewellery option, especially if you’re a little unsure on what to wear. Our Leona Pearl Earring range are the right amount of understated glamour in this situation
Diamonds Aren’t Always A Girls’ Best Friend
Diamonds are a real show piece. Many people are tempted to wear diamond jewellery as wedding guests- when else can you wear them but for such a big occasion? Bear in mind though that diamonds are traditionally reserved for the bride at weddings so leave yours at home. Yes you can wear your wedding or engagement rings though, we’re talking diamond necklaces, earrings and bracelets here.
Make sure to wear your favourite understated jewellery
Follow Coco Chanel’s Example
With all that said, you are still hoping to look nice- you’ll most likely be in some of the photography and it’s a party (sort of) after all. So do add in a full set of jewellery- earrings, necklace, bracelets and your rings. Just let understated glam be your guide. And if in doubt, follow the Coco Chanel rule of dressing “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory”. Well if Chanel said it…
