Guest Blogger Fridays: Bonnie from Bonita J

Bonnie from Bonita J has been a guest blogger before and she has some great tips for picking the right bridal jewelry. I thought this was such an appropriate topic since most of my blogs this week has been on jewelry. In this blog Bonnie will be discussing choosing the right bridal bracelet. Enjoy!

Finding the Right Bridal Bracelet

A bridal bracelet adds that extra mile of sparkle and glamour to the wrist. Although bridal bracelets are not an essential accessory for a bride, they make a nice final touch, like icing on a cake. There are so many styles and options to choose from that you can’t go wrong with any selection.

A great place to begin your bridal bracelet accessory hunt is to take your gown style into consideration. Are you wearing a simple gown with no beading, or an over the top gushy gown with lace and gorgeous bustling? Additionally, you will need to decide if you want a more subtle and simple look on your wrist or a dramatic and glitzy look to finish off your accessory selections.

Additionally, you need to consider your gown's embellishments. Does your gown have pearls, crystals, rhinestones, bows, or is it simple and plain? When selecting your bridal bracelet choose materials that are found in your gown and incorporate those elements into your bridal bracelet. This will make it look like one cohesive look. If you have a simple gown with no embellishments, you have so many more choices, because you are not restricted in any way. You can not go wrong with going with a simple look or add an over the top, glitzy and glamorous piece to set off your gown.

Grouping several bridal bracelets together is another fashionable and trendy take on accessorizing. Maybe a single strand bracelet isn’t enough. You may want to pair it with a chunkier bracelet that has the same elements or several other bracelets to tie in the piece. Debra Messing at the 2009 Golden Globes did this by combining several gold toned bracelets with the same elemental gems and stones.

After you’ve selected the perfect bridal bracelet to finish off your look, remember that you don’t have to pack away your bridal jewelry after the wedding. Many brides pack away their tiaras, shoes, and gowns but the jewelry is one item from the day of your wedding that can be worn again and again, to keep those special memories close to your heart.
