Don’t be afraid to create your wedding look around a statement piece of jewelry, especially if it is a family heirloom. Most often, however, the dress is the focal point and the jewelry a discrete accompaniment. The more ornate your dress is, the less jewelry you should wear. (Less is more…) Choose necklaces based on the neckline of your dress and never mix jewelry styles or metal colors. As you assemble your look, double-check that your dress and your jewelry are not competing with each other.
