Pippa Middleton Inspired Bridal Styling Tips!

The entire event was planned with expert precision, with the creme-de-la creme of British society present for the big shabang. Taking place within a picturesque country setting, the wedding was a dreamboat of a spectacle. And as if the day couldn’t be any more wonderful, it was also blessed with sunny weather, shining brilliantly over the lady of the hour, Pippa Middleton-- c'est magnifique! With effortlessly beauty, and the collaboration of her pro stylists, Pippa dazzled for the cameras, setting a new standard for brides-to-be.

 

A Glance at Pippa’s Overall Bridal Look

Pippa’s approach to her bridal look can be best described as simplistic romance. Her dress was textured entirely in lace with an unconventionally high neckline and short sleeves, offering a modest yet feminine allure. Her hair was sweetly swept back into a sensual updo, neat and precise, without a single hair out of place. She wore a floral white headband to accent an otherwise plain hairstyle, giving her a subtle regal vibe. Finally, her jewelry was left surprisingly plain, letting her inner royalty shine through!

 

The Earrings

Classic and timeless, Pippa chose a drop-down pearl earring style. They offer a splash of elegance, while also giving her more glamor, particularly to balance out a plainer hairdo. Pearls offer a mature and sophisticated touch, but if you’re more of a trendy bride, you can opt for diamond versions instead.

 

These convertible earring jackets by Gottlieb & Sons give you that expressive drop-down effect, but are much ritzier than Pippa’s pearl ones. You can also order these earrings in a variety of precious metals, including rose gold, the most fashionable choice of the season!

 

The Ring

Pippa’s ring is unlike anything we’ve seen among most celebrities and socialites. It features a radiant cut, surrounded by an octagon halo shape filled with clear diamonds. The band, by comparison, is thin, accentuating the weight and prestige of the setting. This style is a tastefully reminder that brides don't need to necessarily go for the typical halo designs, but should explore different variations of this style.

Like Pippa, you can embrace a more geometric style halo such as this vintage inspired  engagement ring by Gottlieb & Sons. With its emerald cut diamond center and diamond-encrusted band, it offers a little more razzle dazzle than Pippa’s rind, but is still refreshingly original.

You can also take inspiration from Pippa’s octagonal halo with this precious version by Gottlieb & Sons. Yet, this style takes the ambiance a step further with its artistic touches, making this piece timeless. The originality is centered in the band which is uniquely creative with its twisting decorative effect.

You can feel like royalty any day with these graceful jewelry pieces. Perhaps your wedding won’t take place in the upper echelons of England, but your Pippa-inspired bridal look will surely bring you close to the dream-- minus the attendance of the paparazzi and media crew.

For your wedding, you may be gifted a set of studs that have passed down through your family to be your "something old". Yet, usually these pieces tend to be “blah”, and since you’re going for a more dramatic look, simple studs just won’t do.

6 Stunning Bridal Earring Looks from Pinterest

There is a school of thought that says it’s the bridal necklace that’s the star of the show, but we beg to differ.  Unless you have the neck of a swan, bold necklaces tend to crowd the décolletage-face area. So, in some cases, it’s better to forget the necklace, and draw attention to your radiant face with a pair of awesome earrings.  And the choices are plenty. From traditional to modern, subtle to bold, you can make any statement you want with these baubles. Get ready to replicate these gorgeous Pinterest looks with Gottlieb & Sons fine jewelry. Here are 6 gems from Pinterest we’d like to put in our own ears if we were about to glide to the altar!

 

Decadent Studs

What better way to bedazzle your face than a fine pair of studs that are dressed up with unique convertible earring jackets? These are quite chunky and ornate, so the hair style is kept very simple, and nothing glittery competes with them at the neckline. The look is sweet and charming, but with a touch of sophistication.

Who’s ready to be unique?

Magnificent Color

Bridal earrings don’t have to be only pearl and platinum. Color in wedding bling is so today! From ruby red to cobalt blue, splashes of color in a bride’s jewelry pulls a visual punch with an edgy feel.  And with impressive sapphire danglers by Gottlieb & Sons you’ll also be adding that proverbial “something blue” to your wedding ensemble!

Playfully Unique

Shoulder dusters speaks volumes about your modern style.  The funky design is a unique choice.  If you’re a traditional kind of girl, these may not be for you, but if your taste runs into the avant-garde, these will give you that look.  We see this pair by Gottlieb & Sons going well with a minimalist dress or even bridal trousers. Bonus?  You can easily wear these for other special occasions with your soon-to-be husband!

Modern Bride

While the trendy cuff earring design may be pushing the modern envelope for nuptials, this pair from Pinterest straddles a nice middle ground. The leafy design says traditional, but the cuffing around the ear says that the bride is a stylish, today’s woman.  Is this you? Gottlieb & Sons offers a similar concept with these lovely yet edgy pair of inside-out hoops, offering the ideal blend of glamor and trendiness.

No matter what style of earrings you’ll choose for your wedding ensemble, keep in mind the proportions of your face (smaller face with smaller earrings) and the length of your neck (shorter neck, no danglers).  And go lightly on the other accessories, or your look will end being remembered as the battle of the bling!  But do wear them.  As Estee Lauder, the woman who gave us all those great cosmetics bearing her name, declared, “Trust and love are wonderful, but don’t forget the earrings!”
