picking the jewelry you wear on your wedding day is a big deal. and it’s not an easy task.
your wedding dress is typically the most expensive clothing you’ve ever worn + the most photographed.
I enlisted the help of baublebar’s swat stylists to style my bridesmaids. remember? I absolutely loved the looks they put together for my bridesmaids. and I was so happy with the whole process. during my first dress fitting, I was asked “what jewelry will you be wearing with your dress?”. I had no idea. I’d thought about it, but the task was so daunting I kept pushing it off. as soon as I got home, I asked for baublebar’s help again. this time for me.

my bridesmaids are wearing this statement necklace, sparkly stud earrings, and this beach-appropriate bracelet. I’m wearing these statement earrings and this + this bracelet.
how did you choose your bridal jewels?
call me crazy, but I love that my bridesmaid jewelry really is something they can wear again.
weddings are synonymous with an insane amount of decisions. and when you seek guidance, all can be answered with “whatever makes you happy”. oh thanks, that helps. [insert: sarcasm].
I decided on the bridesmaid dresses fairly quickly. almost too quick, so the second guessing began. but after a little reassuring from
the girls who will be wearing the dresses my bridesmaids, I made the final decision. picture this: white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, and sapphire blue long strapless bridesmaid gowns.
next decision to be made: jewelry to perfectly complement said gowns + sandy beaches.
thank you to the bauble bar for instantly easing my mind + helping.
I sent a request to their SWAT* team with details of the dresses + what I envisioned. and was quickly greeted by
my hero erin, who put together this pinterest board based on the info I provided for her. a couple yes & no’s later, erin created 5 potential looks for my bridesmaids.
which way do I go?
I love the idea of a statement necklace with the strapless dresses. but on the flip-side, I love the simplicity of no necklace, just gorgeous drop earrings.
