Back Stage At The Reem Acra Fall 2015 Wedding Show
Jewelry is a fundamental part of a future bride’s wedding ritual. However, finding the right set is easier said than done. Apart from selecting exquisite jewelry, brides have to make sure that what they like also flatters their face and personal style. Personal taste, skin tone and face shape matter just as much as current trends. Bridal jewelry sets have to be purchased with extreme attention otherwise the bride risks making an investment that doesn’t match with her sense of fashion.
Here are some tips on finding jewelry that will make you look like a princess on your big day.
Know More About Your Face Shape
It’s fundamental that you understand what kind of face shape you have to be able to pick a set of wedding jewelry that flatters your complexion. To be sure that you’re making the right choice, first you have to assess your forehead.
Broader foreheads are perfect for women who like statement piece with precious stones; however, if yours is rather narrow, then you’d better stick to more discreet pieces.
Now let’s have a closer look at your ears. Women with big ears should stay away from earrings that are too bold and voluminous; these will accentuate the dimension, and you certainly don’t want that happening on your big day. If your ears are not complementing your face, then you might also want to let your hair down.

Matching Jewelry With The Dress
Future brides are extremely meticulous. They want to have the perfect dress, perfect hairstyle and make-up, and of course, perfect jewelry. However, all that is useless if you can’t have balance. There has to be fluidity when mixing all these things. The dress for example, has to go well with the jewelry. A beautiful white gown for instance, shouldn’t be adored with gold embellishments. Instead, you might want to consider platinum or pearls to match with the white gown.
Diamond-white dresses on the other hand, work great with silver and gold accessories, even rose gold if you’d like. But then again, if your gown is ivory, the best jewelry sets are the ones in warmer undertones of yellow. The creamy tint of your dress will match perfectly with discreet tones of gold.
Finding the perfect jewelry to go with your wedding dress, face, and personal sense of style seems like a real struggle. And yet, it’s not something impossible to achieve provided that you learn to create balance. Women with long, oval faces should consider statement sets made from a mix of materials and precious stones. However, if you have a rather chubby face with prominent cheekbones, discreet thin jewelry might seem like the best idea. In spite of current trends, always consider selecting jewelry that you like. Bottom line is, it’s your wedding day so you can do whatever you want and whatever you think it’s required to feel confident in your own skin.

Jewelry That Works With Your Skin
Metals are the easiest to select. They’re easy to divide into warm and cool categories too. If you have a pale tone, then you might want to go with silvery white metals such a platinum, white gold, silver, stainless steel or titanium. On the other hand, brides with warmer tones are advised to opt for metals in yellowish darker nuances of copper, brass, yellow gold, or pewter.
Selecting The Perfect Wedding Ring
Before jumping in and choosing the shiniest ring you can see in a jewelry store, you have to settle on a budget. Your next step is to decide on the metal, and last but not least on the model. Classic wedding rings are the best; they’re timeless and they’ll never go out of style. However, if you’re a fan of trendy rings, then you might want to know that this season is all about family crest signet rings, and vintage-inspired bands with a twist. As far as the material is concerned, platinum is one of the best choices you can make. However, you have to be aware the price. Platinum doesn’t come cheap; its greatest advantage is that it’s strong, long-lasting and enduring.

If you’re planning on becoming a bride this year, it is important to know more about the most influential trends for 2016. This way you can shine brighter than ever on your big day. The wedding dress is a bride’s greatest concern. It has to fit you perfectly and match with your bridal jewelry. The right accessories paired with an exquisite gown will have the biggest impact on your future husband, family and friends.
Choosing the right jewelry set for your big day is challenging, so there’s no wonder that brides spend weeks juggling between the right bracelets, necklaces, earrings, diamonds or colored gemstones – the variety is endless, so you should start your search as early as possible. Here are some bridal jewelry trends that will make you look sublime.
Vintage inspired jewelry trends
This 2016, wedding earring sets exude an air of vintage-inspired elegance. They come in different shapes and styles. Pearl earrings with crystal accents and colored gems will emphasize the beautiful features of your face. Because they’re bold and imposing, make sure the make-up is discreet; this way the entire look will appear fresh and enticing. Drop earrings in particular, are the coolest trend for this season. They come in a wide range of styles so that they can fit perfectly with your chosen wedding theme classic/modern with a dramatic appeal, or luxurious with a touch of sassy elegance.
Wedding Ring Trends
This 2016, brides are looking for rings made of white, yellow or pink gold with precious or semi-precious stones like sapphires, rubies or diamonds. But then again, there are brides that prefer simpler wedding bands without any stones or precious gems. With or without the stones, a wedding ring’s main purpose is to create a bond between you and your future spouse. Bespoke signet rings have recently grabbed our attention. They’re bold and they can be personalized after the wish and preferences of the bride or the groom. They can be engraved with each other’s names, or feature a crest that defines the love that you share.
Once a symbol of power and domination today’s signet is more discreet and appealing; thus making it ideal for both men and women as wedding bands. Choose from a variety of models in different shapes and sizes, and decide on a ring that screams ingenuity and originality.
Statement Wedding Accessories
In the past, bridal jewelry sets were more discreet and not that flashy. Nowadays, the bolder the pieces the better; brides want their earrings and necklaces to be bolder and more visual than ever before! A couple of year ago, women used to wear necklaces in a more minimal approach. Right now, fancier alternatives with bolder stones and sophisticated crafts are a lot more appreciated because they make a memorable impression. They give brides an opportunity to look exclusive on their wedding day.
Statement jewelry sets are a perfect way to complete a rather simpler wedding gown and hairstyle. In fact, this sheer, classic wedding outfit is in trend. A bride has to look elegant and effortless, but she should be able to add a twist to her look with bold jewelry.
All Eyes On Pink Gold
Another cool wedding jewelry trend for 2016 is rose gold, also known as pink gold, which has a warm, elegant and timeless allure. It is different from white and yellow gold, and it will give your outfit a discreet retro allure. The sets are particularly appealing for brides fond of the old-fashioned, vintage-inspired style. They go really well with long, simple lace dresses and a classic hairdo. Jewelry sets that uphold current wedding traditions but approach them in a creative, flexible way will be highly preferred by future brides this year.
