Up-do’s are normally considered to be an “older” look, depending on the style of the chignon. Here, we have a look that is lower than a regular up-do, with strands of hair pulled out to create a more subtle and youthful look. This hairstyle is perfect with dangle earrings. Depending on the style and color of your dress, you can go with gold, rose gold, or fun and colorful earrings to complete the look. Since your hair is pulled back, it’d also be a great idea to go with a simple necklace to match with your dazzling dangle earrings.

Depending on the structure of your face, bangs may be perfect for you. This look focuses on drawing attention to your eyes and cheekbones, while covering up some wrinkles on the forehead. A glamorous matching necklace and studs are perfect for this look.

Don’t forget about your décolletage.

Pairing the cut of your dress with the proper adornment can add character to your wedding gown, or even highlight a unique feature.

Sweetheart, Strapless, V-neck:

Normally, when a bride’s gown is strapless or has a plunging neckline, we see it being paired with a dramatic necklace that becomes the main focus of your outfit. While this is perfectly fine, you may want to take a different approach and skip the necklace. You can focus dangling earrings, especially if you’re planning on having an up-do.

We’re taking a break from the over the top chandelier earrings this year. This spring, you’ll find dramatic yet subtle dangling earrings like the ones below.

If you are choosing to wear a necklace, spice it up with a hint of color by using a meaningful gem like your birthstone, or by matching it to the flowers in your bouquet.

Nothing says spring like bright colors and bride’s are stepping out of the traditional white diamond and adding a pop of color with bright lively diamonds.
