How to Pick Jewelry to Complement Your Wedding Dress

Learn how to pick jewelry to complement your wedding dress from celebrity wedding planner Barbara Esses in this Howcast video.


My name is Barbara Esses and I do events for a living. I'm Ruthie Hecht; I'm an event planner and I work with and for my mother. We're going to teach you the do's and don'ts for the perfect wedding. We live in a world full of bling. It's a new word. It's not a word that existed for a very long time, but jewelry's become basic in a woman's wardrobe in the year 2011. It's awfully nice to be able to buy real, but often we cannot. It's nice that you can convince the groom to give you a beautiful pair of earrings for a wedding. What a nice gift, what a nice thing to remember for the rest of your life. Other than that, one needs to get a bunch of stuff and take it with you to the bridal fitting and also have your hair not necessarily done but in the shape you want it to be for the wedding itself - how you plan to wear it. And you can bring some jewelry with you. Try it on with the dress and see what complements that most. It's extremely important to be aware that bracelets can catch wedding gowns in general. We would not want to catch a bracelet on it cause it will pull the fabric because they're usually fairly simple so it's a good idea not to wear bracelets unless you can be sure it's not going to catch on the dress. Earrings are always a good choice whether they're hanging or on the ear but again try it with your hairdo, try it with your dress and see what pleases you the most. But by all means wear bling.
