Should I wear jewellery at a wedding?

When attending a wedding, guests often wonder about the appropriate attire and accessories. One common question is whether or not to wear jewellery. The answer is yes, you can wear jewellery to a wedding, but there are a few guidelines to keep in mind to ensure your look is elegant and respectful of the occasion.

Subtle Wedding Guest Jewellery

Weddings are special occasions that celebrate the union of two people, and the spotlight should remain on the bride and groom. While it’s perfectly fine to accessorise your outfit, opting for subtle jewellery ensures you look polished without drawing attention away from the couple.

Why Choose Subtle Pieces?

  1. Respect for the Bride: The bride’s attire, including her jewellery, is often the focal point of the day. Wearing understated jewellery allows her to shine without competition.
  2. Elegance and Sophistication: Subtle jewellery exudes a timeless elegance. Delicate necklaces, simple stud earrings, and slender bracelets can complement your outfit beautifully without overpowering it.
  3. Versatility: Simple pieces can easily match any wedding theme or dress code. Whether the wedding is a black-tie affair or a casual outdoor celebration, subtle jewellery is always appropriate.

What Types of Wedding Jewellery to Wear?

When selecting your wedding guest jewellery, consider the following options:

1. Earrings:

  • Studs or Small Hoops: Classic and chic, stud earrings or small hoops add a touch of sparkle without being overly dramatic.
  • Pearls or Diamonds: Both are timeless choices that pair well with any outfit and add a touch of sophistication.

Our Gold Plated Medium Drop Pearl Earrings are great for weddings, they’re subtle enough for a wedding guest but also elegant to be worn as a bride. Pearls are known to be used for weddings because of their natural beauty, rarity and timelessness. Pearls are also coming back into fashion, they’re a very versatile gemstone, their pure white look is perfect for weddings. Learn more about Pearls at weddings from our blog post here.
