How to select wedding pearl jewelry
1. The bride's pearl jewelry should be well matched. For example, her pearl earrings should be of the same type and color as her pearl necklace. The bride is the featured attraction, so she should expect that her guests will be closely examining everything she's wearing on this special day.
2. Pearl jewelry should be color-coordinated with the pearls on the gown rather than with the gown itself. For example, if the gown is ivory-colored and the pearls on it are white, the bride's pearl jewelry should also be white. The pearls on the gown should be the same color as those on the veil. In sum, all the pearls the bride is wearing should look like they were made to go together.
3. If the bride would like to wear a necklace, earrings or brooch from her grandmother that doesn't match her other pearls, consider placing a note in the program stating the bride is wearing, for example, a pearl necklace in honor of her grandmother.
4. If a bride or bridesmaid is wearing a necklace, it should be at least one inch above the neckline so it will not look as if it is going to fall into the dress. If the necklace is longer, it should be at least two inches below the neckline so that it will show and the necklace cannot fall into the dress.
5. Despite the above tips, the bride should remember that this is her day and she has a right to wear whatever she wishes.
