Keep It Simple

If you’re planning to wear an elaborate wedding dress, try to pair it with simpler jewellery styles. For example, a dress with a high neckline and plenty of lace can already be quite eye-catching, so you probably won’t need a necklace overtop. Instead, try a simple and sleek pair of round brilliant cut diamond stud earrings, which offer plenty of sparkle without competing with the dress.

If your dream dress flaunts a plunging v-neck, a pretty eye-catching pendant can work perfectly. Look for a style that sits in the middle of the plunge so that it’s neither too high or too low. Shorter pendant necklaces are a gorgeous way to add some detail to sweetheart necklines and spaghetti straps.

The jewellery that your choose to wear on your special day will forever hold high sentimental value, so finding timeless pieces that you will be able to wear again and again is important too. Extra special dress items in a hue of blue will add a little bit of colour to your wedding day outfit and can play into the wedding day tradition of 'something blue'. These stunning pieces can be used to dress up any outfit for years (and generations) to come.
Dress The Part
When you visit Hennings Jewellers to find your finishing touches try to emulate the key elements of your wedding day outfit. Wear a shade of white with a similar neckline, style your hair up or down and wear your engagement ring to ensure that your new pieces don't clash.
