How to Choose Your Bridal Earrings - Top 5 Tips
As you begin planning your wedding, you may find yourself wondering what to consider when looking for bridal earrings. After all, the right earrings can really make a difference to your overall bridal look and help you feel confident and beautiful on your big day. Here are some things to keep in mind as you search for the perfect pair.
The first thing to consider when shopping for bridal earrings is your personal style. Do you prefer dainty or bold? Do you want a pair that will match your dress, or do you want a pop of colour? Consider your overall bridal look and choose earrings that complement it. If you're wearing a simple, elegant wedding dress similar to the Karen Willis Holmes Lou-lou Elizabeth gown, a pair of sparkling diamonds or bold pearls might be the perfect finishing touch. If you're going for a more bohemian look like the Grace Loves Lace Coco gown, a pair of colourful gemstones might be more your style.
Different earring styles can suit different face shapes. Below are a few tips you can follow when choosing earrings for your specific face shape:
- Oval: You're one of the lucky ones that can wear earrings of any shape and size. However, long, dangly earrings can help to balance out your features.
- Round: Look for earrings that are long and thin like our Shae Earrings to help elongate your face.
- Square: Consider earrings that are round or oval in shape similar to our Bella Earrings to soften the angles of your face.
- Heart-shaped: Look for earrings that are wider at the bottom to balance out the width of your forehead.
- Diamond: Consider stud earrings or drop earrings that are round, oval or teardrop in shape to soften your angles.
If you're not sure what face shape you are take a look at Cosmopolitans face shape guide. If you're still unsure which earring style will flatter your face shape, don't be afraid to try on a few different pairs to see what looks best.
Your hairstyle can also influence the type of earrings you choose. If you have an up-do, you have more freedom to choose a bolder pair of earrings such as our Kyah Earrings. If you have your hair down, you may want to opt for a more understated pair, similar to our Mia Earrings, to avoid looking too busy. If you're not sure what hairstyle you'll be wearing on your wedding day, consider choosing a pair of earrings like our Eloise Earrings that can be worn with a range of different hairstyles.
Bridal earrings come in a variety of materials, including gold, silver, pearls, and diamonds. Consider the material that best matches your wedding band and other jewellery, and choose a pair that will stand the test of time. Gold and silver are classic choices that can be dressed up or down, while diamonds are more formal and pearls are a classic, unique option.
Finally, be sure to consider your budget when shopping for bridal earrings. There are plenty of affordable options available, so you don't have to break the bank to find a pair that you love. If you're on a tight budget, consider choosing a pair of earrings that can be worn after the wedding as well. That way, you'll get more value for your money. Alternatively, you could also opt for a more affordable metal. For example, there are four main types of gold jewellery, some more affordable than others.
Overall, the most important thing is to choose a pair of earrings that you feel confident and beautiful in. Whether you go for a classic pearl stud or a bold, statement pair, the right earrings can complete your bridal look and make you feel like a million dollars on your big day. So take your time and choose a pair that reflects your personal style and complements your overall look.
