How to Choose Bridesmaid Jewelry for Every Dress Style

Adding the finishing touches to bridesmaid attire is fun. The first step is choosing dresses for your bridesmaids. Once the dress is chosen, use the neckline to determine the perfect jewelry as accessories. When it comes to selecting accessories for your bridesmaids, let the neckline of your bridesmaids’ dresses be your guide.

the most common bridesmaid dress styles

V-Neckline Dress

V-Neck dresses are a popular style for spring/summer weddings. Since the neckline is the focal point of this dress, a delicate pendant necklace with a thin chain is the perfect centerpiece. Teardrop bridal earrings or small pearl earrings will highlight the sophisticated elegance of the dress. Minimal jewelry that doesn’t compete with the neckline is your best bet.

Strapless or Sweetheart Dress

It comes as no surprise that strapless and sweetheart necklines are the most common choice of brides for their bridesmaids. The bridesmaid jewelry options are endless for this romantic, dreamy style. Pair this ensemble with a statement necklace and stud earrings.

One Shoulder Dress

For the one shoulder dress, opt for chandelier earrings. This dress style does not require a necklace. Instead, have fun with dramatic, drop earrings and a cute bridesmaid bracelet.

Halterneck Dress

Since the neckline is already adorned with straps, a bridal necklace is not needed to accessorize the halter dress. Your best option would be dangling earrings and a simple bridesmaid bracelet for a glamorous look.

Sheer/Illusion Dress

Since a necklace could snag in the fabric of this neckline, we recommend you opt for stud or drop bridesmaid earrings and a bracelet instead. Sparkling chandelier earrings with a matching bracelet are elegant and sophisticated for this bridesmaid’s look.

Spaghetti Strap Dress

One of the most common styles of bridesmaid dress, the spaghetti strap dress, features a flattering design for nearly all body types. The dainty straps create a beautiful, exquisite silhouette that can carry several accessory choices. A bridesmaid earrings and bracelet set would be the ideal choice for this dress design. Pair this dress with a delicate crystal or pearl necklace or a dramatic chunky statement necklace. To complete the look, choose stud or drop earrings that complement your necklace choice.

Whichever jewelry choice you make for your bridesmaids, they will cherish them as a beautiful memory on this momentous occasion. Giving bridesmaid jewelry to your bridal party is sure to endear them to you and your wedding.
