Wedding bells are ringing! You’ve planned the theme, proposed to your bridal party, you’ve got the dress, and now it’s time to add the finishing touch: Jewelry! As a trendy bride, there’s no time for second guessing your bridal accessories or leaving your bling shopping to the last minute-- even if you’re a procrastinating bridezilla!

High Neckline

Break up this traditionally feminine look with some modern hoop diamond earrings. Perfect for brides who love keeping it classy, but still crave some flavor, these earrings create a memorable way to add some fire to your flair. So, channel your inner Grace Kelly (with a dash of Kardashian) as you walk down the aisle. When it comes to fashion, who says you need to choose sides?

It calls for statement earrings and depending on your dress neckline and style, you might be able to pull off a statement necklace as well. There’s no better time to shine! If you love being a centerpiece of blinding sparkles, Gottlieb & Sons has you covered-- from head to decolette.

Bracelets

 

When the photographer zooms in on that bouquet, you’ll want to be prepared.

Give the camera an eye-full with a breathtaking bracelet. Depending on the style of your dress, you can either play up the glamor with a chunky cuff bracelet or keep it subtle yet elegant with a beautiful diamond bracelet.

Just try not to overdo it and make your hand appear cluttered.  Don’t make the bridal faux pas of trying to look like a diamond-draped princess, but ending up like an indecisive bling addict.

 

Blush Dress

As every trendy bride knows, blush or peachy toned wedding gowns are very in for the Spring wedding season and look great on all skin tones. But accessorizing this color may be a bit more of a challenge. This feminine style calls for even more feminine jewelry.

Opt for pretty and elegant pearls or tear drop clusters, try them in a beautiful rose-gold color and look pretty in pink.

 

Something Blue

For “something blue” in your wedding attire, consider a large cocktail ring like this gem by Gottlieb & Sons.

A cocktail ring will add a special touch to accent a dress that has texture or is surfaced with lace or detailed embroidery. If your dress lacks shimmer, a large cocktail ring will do the job and give it some edge. Basically, it offers a truckload of oomph to ensure you’re not a basic B (bride).

 

 

On a day that is always linked to classic beauty and tradition, how often do brides ever get the chance to wear something truly trendsetting? On the day where all eyes are on you, let your fashion conscience be your guide. Good luck to all of you beautiful brides to be!
