BROOKLYN BRIDAL: Two Looks, One Dress

April 01, 2016

Weddings are a blast! Eat, drink, dance, and celebrate the union of two people who love each other and want to marry so badly that they were willing to endure the stress of putting on a wedding. Jokes aside, I really do love weddings, which is a good thing because I am the Maid-of-Honour in my sister's wedding this May. I couldn't be more excited!

Since a majority of the details are all dealt with, our next upcoming consideration is bridal party jewelry. My sister has been putting some thought into what kind of jewelry look she wants for her bridal party. Being the good MOH I am, I thought I would comb through some of my favourites in the Brooklyn Designs collection and throw together two types of looks for her to compare!

The dress I'm using as an example bridesmaid dress is a plum coloured strapless dress by Monique L'Huillier. However, the general gist of this post is applicable to any shade or style of dress.

 

LOOK #1: Keeping it subtle with Clear Swarovski Crystals.

Swarovski crystals are used very often in bridal jewelry. It's unassuming and delicate while adding a touch of sparkle to your skin. I love it because it's so versatile and it really compliments any skin tone! With that in mind, I decided to pair our Chloe necklace and our Chloe earrings in clear. Personally, I would choose to wear these both in silver. I love the combination of crystal quartz and silver!


LOOK #2: Gemstones and gold!

This second look is slightly more dramatic, without being distracting. The combo I love is our Erin necklace and our Erin earrings, both in Labradorite. I chose Labradorite because I think it would go well with the specific dress I'm using as an example. If there's a gemstone you prefer, you can keep that in mind as well!

Jewelry adds another dimension to your bridal party's outfits. The idea here is that a simple change in accessories can have a dramatic effect on the overall genre of fashion you're trying to go with.
