I Have The Dress - Now What About The Tiara and Wedding Jewellery?

It's gorgeous - your dream wedding dress and at last the search is over.

Ah , but what about the jewellery and the tiara to match it? Maybe you've never worn a tiara before and do you need a necklace , bracelet , earrings to go with it as well?

Usually the most important planning is for the dress and then the jewellery is chosen to go with it. Only occasionally as a jeweller have I met brides who have chosen their jewellery and then embarked on a search for a dress. I once spoke to a young woman who was looking for a wedding ring and I asked when her wedding was. She replied that she hadn't met a man yet - she just fancied having the ring first - but that's another story...

So here is a general guide to buying your wedding jewellery - of course all these guides and rules can be broken - if it feels right for you , then that's OK.

The necklace is usually the easiest to decide on because you will already know what sort of thing you like. If the design of the dress is very elaborate , then choose a simple necklace and let the shape of the necklace follow the neckline - for instance , a "v" shaped dress looks good with a necklace. A gentle scooped neckline looks good with a round shaped necklace. An off-the-shoulder dress can look stunning with a choker or collar necklace. If the dress is more plain in style then the more elaborate the necklace can be. In this case , a matching bracelet or drop earrings can also complement the outfit. Brides with long necks can wear an elaborate necklace and long drop earrings very well. With a shorter neck , it's best to wear necklaces a bit lower.

The tiara is the hardest to decide on - it's not something you can wear every day as you can with the necklace , earrings and bracelet. It's a good idea to try on as many tiaras as you can and see what suits the shape of your face. When you begin trying them on you may be surprised to discover that what you had been certain about , isn't right for you. Generally , tall , curvy girls can look really good in a bold , large tiara and can take a tiara of 3 inches / 7 cms high. Smaller girls look best in a more dainty tiara with a height of up to 1.5" / 3 cms.

A lot of my customers worry about how to wear a tiara , thinking there are definite rules - but there aren't , it just depends how it looks. Most tiaras are malleable to some extent so don't be afraid to adjust the base so that it fits more comfortably. Do you wear the tiara at the front or the back of your head? Again that's up to you - and possibly your hairdresser to decide - but they can be held in place via a small hole in the back or even with some tiaras via a pair of plastic combs attached at the back.

If your tiara is very bold or elaborate choose a simple necklace or even omit the necklace and keep the earrings to a simple stud. This will ensure that the focal points of your dress look just right. If the necklace is highly elaborate , then perhaps a flower or comb at the back or the side of the head rather than a tiara keeps the balance just right.

Finally remember this is just a general guide and once again , rules can be broken - because once you look in the mirror and smile , you know it's right!
