Our Favorite Wedding Earrings for Every Bride to Wear on Her Big Day
As far as wedding accessories go, earrings are a no-brainer. While necklaces can sometimes be tricky to wear (they may interfere or compete with the intricate neckline of your wedding dress), you can always find a pair of earrings—whether chandeliers or studs—that will work. In fact, they'll do more than just work. Earrings can enhance your entire big-day look, bringing attention and color to your face in an elegant way. Even better, if your hair is pulled back or you're wearing a strapless neckline, you can go bigger and bolder, and you could even wear something a little more statement-making. Whether that's a pair of asymmetrical pearl earrings or a set of gold hoops is entirely up to you.
But even if you don't want to go big, you can still make a subtle impact—and stay true to your personality—by choosing your earrings wisely. If you love the ear cuff trend, you can make it work for your big day. Select something subtle—classic gold is always a winner, but a sapphire or aquamarine set is nice play on your "something blue." If the mismatched earring trend is more your style, try mixing two minimalist studs. Go for a gemstone in one ear and a classic metal in the other for a look that's simple and chic. Another option? The single earring trend, which adds a whimsical yet current element to your bridal look. And, of course, if you're a classic girl, we've got you covered, too, with everything from classic diamond studs to a vintage-inspired set.
