For many brides, choosing the wedding gown is the biggest decision to make before the wedding. After the gown has been chosen, however, it’s time to select the jewelry for the big day. Rose gold is a solid option for jewelry due to its beautiful hue, durability, and lower price point than some other options. If you’ve decided to go with rose gold pieces, you’ll still need to make some decisions about how you want to incorporate it into your jewelry: do you want a necklace? What about a bracelet? Would stud or dangly earrings look best? By considering things like your dress, hairstyle, and personal style, you can select rose gold wedding jewelry that will make you feel beautiful on your wedding day.
Picking Rose Gold Over Other Metals
Using Rose Gold in Your Wedding
Styling Your Rose Gold Jewelry
Pick a rose gold bracelet. A bracelet is a traditional wedding day choice, and there is a style for every gown. If your gown has an ornate neckline and you’re forgoing a necklace, a dazzling rose gold bracelet can add the sparkle you need. A simple bracelet can add a sweet yet understated touch to a more elaborate dress. Remember, your bracelet will be on display as you hold your bouquet, so pick a piece you love.
- Chunky bangles or big cuffs can slide around your arms. Wear your jewelry before your wedding so you know if it’ll be bothersome or distracting. If it is, skip it for your ceremony, and then bring it out for the reception.
Consider wearing a headband or hairpiece. If you want to add some rose gold shimmer to your look but aren’t a big jewelry person, you can always incorporate a rose gold hairpiece. Check out the options for rose gold crowns, tiaras, hairpins, or barrettes. If you find a piece you love, you can bring it to your wedding day hairstylist and have them work it into your wedding day hairdo. If you’re doing your own hair, practice styling your hair with the hairpiece a few times before the big day.
- Wearing a 1920s-style headband is a great way to play up the vintage feel of your wedding, if that’s what you’re going for.
- Make sure the hairpiece feels secure. You don’t want anything to come loose while you’re walking down the aisle or dancing at your reception.
- If you are wearing a sparkly headband, crown, tiara, or similar, stick with simple earrings.
- Beadwork is very 1920s, so if you’re going for a vintage look, try incorporating beading into the sash.
