Bridal Jewelry for the Radiant Bride

Finding the perfect dress you have always dreamed about is one of the most fun and important tasks a bride will endeavor. Finding the perfect bridal jewelry for the bride to accessorize with that dress is also fun and essential to completing your look. So now you have the dress, let’s choose your bridal jewelry. When it comes to selecting your bridal jewelry, keep in mind a few items. The first is the style of wedding you will be hosting. Will you be requiring black ties and evening gowns, sandals, exotic flowers and romantic nuptials on the beach? Or a simple no fuss back yard picnic wedding? Whatever style of wedding you are hosting can help you determine what style of bridal jewelry you will wear. The second item to consider when thinking about your bridal jewelry is the theme or colors you will be including in your ceremony and reception. If you are having, for instance, a beach wedding or a beach themed wedding, you may want to check out several different bridal jewelry accessory options. Of course with a beach themed wedding, sea shells and white pearls or mother of pearls are a common and practical bridal jewelry choice for your wedding look. Not only will this style and type of bridal jewelry match your theme and occasion, you will be radiantly satisfied with your bridal jewelry accessory selection. You won’t need to ask your bridesmaids, mom or closest friends if that selection of bridal jewelry matches – it is the theme and occasion! You will feel confident and as a result beautiful! Another idea to help in your selection of the bridal jewelry you will wear is the season or month you decide to get married in. While glancing at all the seasons, there are some very practical and obvious choices for the selection of your bridal jewelry. Here are some ideas by seasons. Winter Bridal Jewelry Selections – The winter months bring  the beauty of white and shimmering snowflakes. There are many options for bridal jewelry that fit the snowflake theme. If snowflakes really are not your idea of the perfect bridal jewelry, try visualizing clear swarovski crystals that sparkle and shine in the light. Swarovski crystal bridal jewelry is becoming more popular with celebrities and brides alike. If swarovski crystals are too much for the bridal look you desire – try simple white or ivory pearls. Nothing says traditional bride better than beautiful pearls. Pearls are a great selection for your bridal jewelry accessories, as there are so many options. From a simple strand of pearls to a glammed out pearl choker – your options are limitless. Spring Bridal Jewelry Selections – Spring time is such a beautiful and “new” time of year. The trees begin to grow leaves, the grass grows, tulips come up – you get the idea. Take inspiration from the newness of the spring months when selecting your bridal jewelry. Don’t be afraid to select bright, bold and radiant colors. Traditionally brides wear white, but tradition is not a rule or style you must follow. If you love bright green and you want that to show it in your bridal jewelry accessories – then wear the bright green. This is your day – your way! Your bridal jewelry selection can reflect that style as well. The flowers you carry down the aisle, your bridesmaids’ bouquets or the flowers you choose to decorate with can also be used to help you decide on your bridal jewelry. If roses are right up your alley – then rose flowered jewelry may be the perfect bridal jewelry accessory for you. Don’t stop with roses, consider all of your flower options, daisies, gardenias, calla lilies, just to name a few. Summer Bridal Jewelry Selections – Summer is a fantastic and the most popular time of year to get married. Use the beauty and warmth of the summer months to help you decide upon your bridal jewelry. Again, the flowers you choose to carry or decorate with can be a great consideration. Summer time also brings out the kid in all of us – vacations at the lake, picnics in the park, fireworks, you get the idea! If summer is that time of year that brings magic, mystery, and fun, consider these factors when selecting your bridal jewelry. Many  planned  summer weddings are becoming more often fun and casual events – your bridal jewelry can reflect that as well. This would be a great opportunity to select some fun and trendy bridal jewelry to complete your wedding day look. Summer weddings many times have bright to soft pastel colors. The options for pearls and crystals are growing in colors and shapes. It is easy to find and coordinate your bridal jewelry colors with the pearl, crystal and stone color options available. Glass pearls and swarovski crystals are coming up and out with so many new colors – you can accessorize with any color imaginable. Fall Bridal Jewelry Selections – The autumn months bring on a wonderfully beautiful array of colors – new to that season in particular. If you are planning a wedding in the fall or autumn months, there are some very beautiful bridal jewelry options. Nature is always a great place to begin looking for bridal jewelry ideas and the fall season is not one to let you down. Whether you are a “nature bug” or not, you cannot deny the gorgeous beauty of fall. If you’re planning a fall wedding and would like to add some color to you accessories this is the time to do it. The beautiful golds, browns, reds and yellows are just perfect applications for your bridal jewelry. Whether you choose your bridal jewelry by the theme of your wedding, the formality, the colors or the season, you will wed – your ideas for inspiration are limitless.

Choosing the perfect outfit for work or play is tough enough, but the jewelry you wear with it says a lot about your personality. For every outfit, there is the perfect jewelry combination to accessorize it. But, how can you afford beautiful name brand fashion jewelry for every day of the week? It’s now easy with so many online shopping malls offering gorgeous jewelry at cheap prices. Here are some quick tips to help you accessorize for each day of the week. Monday: All Business If you’re like the rest of the working world, then Mondays for you are usually all business. And that means “busy!” For busy, stressful Mondays you’ll want to keep your attire simple and comfortable. Many ladies in the workforce are tempted to wear something very “business-like” on Mondays to make up for a weekend of slouchy clothing. Unfortunately, this makes for a miserable Monday! Wear flexible, simple clothing and simple jewelry such as a pair of short earrings and one simple necklace. You might even wear a couple of small, flat rings, but nothing that stands out – or sticks out! Tuesday: Accessorize as You Feel Tuesdays are usually tiresome days when you’re recuperating from Monday, but not quite to the “hump” day yet. So, wear jewelry according to how you feel. If you feel daring and dashing, try out some bizarre styles. If you’re feeling worn and tired, keep the jewelry simple with natural tones. Wednesday: Try Out New Looks Wednesdays are great for trying out new jewelry and clothing. Take a chance with a new colored gemstone ring or a new pendent for your necklace. Collect an assortment of brooches so you can try them with new outfits. If you are unable to buy new name brand fashion jewelry, try mixing some of your jewelry to create new combinations. Thursday: Beginning the Fun Everyone looks forward to Friday because it begins the weekend. Thursdays are great too because people are looking forward to the next day. This is a day when you can be bold, playful or even sophisticated with your jewelry. Use necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings to enhance the colors and style of your outfit. You can even throw in a matching purse along with some matching shoes to complete your outfit! Friday: Casual and Fun On Fridays, you’ve let your hair down and want to be free from “dressy” outfits and jewelry. So on Fridays, keep your fashion jewelry simple and don’t be afraid to dress casually if your boss allows it. Saturday: Rest and Relaxation Many people rest and relax on Saturdays; however, some have to work or attend other engagements during weekends. You might want to wear something casual with no jewelry while you are at home. This will give you a break from all the hustle and bustle. On Saturday evenings out, wear solid-colored, sophisticated outfits with beautiful sparkling jewelry to enhance it if you’re dressing for a formal occasion. Or, throw together some fun bright colors and jewelry to go along if you’re planning a fun-filled Saturday evening. Sunday: Church and Other Activities On Sundays, you can wear something simple or elegant if you attend church services – whatever best suits the occasion. If you’re attending sports on Sunday, wear simple jewelry that won’t get in the way. If resting around the house – forget about the...
