Your bridesmaids are precious for you. They are going to accompany you on your special day. You wish that they should look beautiful, especially in the dresses and jewelry you have given them, so that everyone would praise you. So, how would you make your bridal party look amazing? Here are some tips.
1. Let Them Make Choices on Their Own
You chose your bridesmaids because they are very important to you; they include your best friends, your officemate, your to-be sister in law and so on. Now rather than making them stereotype, let them go on their own to make choices. This will make them shine with their individuality. You have chosen the same dress for them. Now if you let them choose their own jewelry and accessories, they will look fabulous. Ask them to choose their own necklaces, bracelets, earrings, purses and shoes. Of course, it would be nice to give them some parameters. For example, tell them to choose jewelry in pearls or crystals, or wear only earrings and necklace, but no bracelets, and so on. It’s a good idea to keep a veto power over your bridal party jewelry, so that you can avoid getting last minute surprises like a faux fur collar! However, giving them freedom to some extent is also not a bad idea, like some may wear pearls while some may come bare-necked and so on.
2. Keeping Dresses Simple and Jewelry Bright
You can also choose simple dresses for your bridesmaids and instead, give them bright jewelry. This will make your bridal dress conspicuous among them and they will be happy with the bright jewelry. This will achieve a beautiful balance in the wedding photos of beauty and simplicity.
3. Complement and Not Duplicate
Your bridesmaids’ jewelry should not copy yours; instead it should complement yours. For example, if you are going to wear a solid crystal choker, they can wear a delicate rhinestone pendant in simple sterling silver chain. If you will be wearing many pieces of shining hair accessories forming your headpiece, each of your bridesmaids can wear one such clip in her hair. If you will be wearing ethnic jewelry, they too can be involved in the theme but with different and less prominent, yet charming pieces. All in all, you can achieve unity in diversity.
4. Tip about Necklaces
Here’s a tip about your bridesmaids’ necklaces – ensure that they match the necklines of your maids’ dresses. 14 inch is a good length that works with nearly all necklines.
Follow these tips and your bond with your bridesmaids will be even stronger for the rest of your life.
