In addition, chandelier earrings helped to highlight the face because they hang down from the ear. This also creates an elongated silhouette that can be very becoming.

Open Hair with Partial Soft Braids

If you like the idea of wedding braid hairstyles, think about the partial soft braid. These differ from more formal braiding techniques like French braids, in that they don't incorporate all of the hair. In addition, some versions of the style use an underhand braid whereby the hair appears tucked in. consider securing the braids to the back of your head, and then pinning your veil where they joined together. The options for these cute wedding hairstyles are endless.

Open Waves

If you're looking for medium length wedding hairstyles, then maybe open waves is your choice. These are fairly easy wedding hairstyles, which you can often create with a curling iron and some texture spray. Like the messy bun discussed above, it's also great for destination weddings. Consider adding flowers or a nice hair clip to your messy waves.

Jewelry Suggestion: To compliment your free-flowing hair, think about some simple drop earrings. Because your hairstyle looks so glamorous, you want something relatively understated without being plain.

This is also a great way to wear something blue, such as sapphire earrings, or wear something the color of your bridesmaid’s dresses. This way, you can add a pop of color without ruining the bridal vibe.

High Updo with Flowers

Let's be honest: updo hairstyles for weddings are incredibly traditional. And for most of us, this is the first option we think about. However, that doesn't mean that our hairstyle needs to be fussy. Instead of adding a lot of crystals, think about incorporating real or silk flowers. This can be something plane like babies breath or, perhaps, your favorite flower or even something from your bouquet. By adding flowers, you can have a hairstyle that is rich with tradition without being overdone.

Here's the other consideration. If you're getting married in the fall, then it's a time of special warmth. There's a chill in the air and everyone feels closer to nature. Flowers in your hair are a great way to harness the spirit of the season.

Jewelry Suggestion: If you opt for a formal updo, one of the most traditional jewelry options is pearls. Pearl wedding jewelry has been a tradition for decades, even centuries. In addition, because pearls are so timeless you might decide to wear your grandmother’s pearls. Alternatively, consider one of the lovely pearl wedding jewelry sets on the market.

Pearls are a beautiful accompaniment to many formal and semi-formal outfits.

Choosing Your Jewelry for Wedding

If all of this sounds overwhelming, that probably isn't surprising. After all, there's lots of information out there. However, perhaps the biggest thing to keep in mind is that you want everything to look nice together. besides esthetics, here are a few simple shopping tips.

First, never overspend. You don't want to spend so much money on your wedding jewelry that you don't enjoy the rest of your party. This advice holds especially strongly with something that you are less likely to wear frequently.

Second, think about the metals that your jewelry is made of. For instance, you may find that yellow gold jewelry complements your dress better than the white gold or platinum of your ring. In this case, it really isn't that big of a deal. Besides your rings, it's best to make sure that your wedding jewelry looks nice together. In other words, if you mix metals, do so tastefully.

Third, colored gems come with special considerations. For wedding jewelry, where there will be a lot of pictures, it's usually better to choose a high-quality stone over a large one. Besides, this jewelry will hold its value better over time.

Finally, make sure you purchase everything from a reputable jeweler. It's no good to get yourself scammed or find that you can't return a piece of jewelry that ends up looking awful with your dress. Instead, make sure that it's easy to return your jewelry if you are dissatisfied for whatever reason. We wish you the best of luck in your wedding planning and your new life.
