You’ve selected those special ladies to stand next to you on your most memorable day and that’s because they’ve been there for you through it all. There is a perfect gift idea that most brides add to their wedding to do lists as part of the wedding preparations and that’s bridesmaid jewelry. Many times the jewelry you give your bridesmaids to wear to the wedding is their “Thank You” gift from the happy couple for sharing in their special occasion. You can take that gift idea and make it more personal, without stamping a monogrammed letter on it.
Every woman generally loves receiving jewelry. It’s an even better gift when it’s jewelry that you can wear after the wedding to other special events or to dress up that favorite outfit. Incorporating your bridesmaids unique style into their bridesmaid jewelry can be both beneficial to you and your maids. Working within the same color palate as your wedding colors allows you to find bridesmaid jewelry that both coordinates with your wedding colors, but looks fabulous on your maids, because they are comfortable within their own style.
One way of coordinating your colors into their bridesmaid jewelry is to select, for example, the same exact necklace or bracelet for all of your maids. Find a design that lends itself well to all sizes and shapes. The best way is to select a necklace or bracelet that offers an extension chain. This way you are sure to fit all sizes within one single product purchase.
Next, select a different pair of earrings for each bridesmaid that reflects their own style. You may be thinking this will look unorganized and not right. However, if you select the same color scheme throughout each pair of earrings, you will have a different style for each maid, but the same color palate that will bring their looks all together, but uniquely. For the bridesmaid that doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry, select a simple drop style that’s not over the top or flashy. For the bridesmaid that wears big hoops and bright, bold jewelry, select clustered or chandelier earrings. These styles will all add a dramatic and elegant touch, all within your own color scheme.
After weddings, most brides and bridesmaids dry clean their gowns and pack them away with all of the other wedding accessories. With bridal and bridesmaid jewelry that is customized to a person’s uniqueness and own style, you don’t have to pack away those gems. This is a gift idea that keeps on giving when your bridesmaids wear those sparkly gifts to their next party or celebration.
