Just because they’re all in the wedding party doesn’t mean they’re the same. Feel free to mix and match bridesmaids’ jewelry.
One of the biggest (and best) departures from wedding traditions in the past few years has been the move toward different styles of bridesmaid’s dresses within the same wedding party. The bride picks a color (and sometimes a material), and her attendants can each choose a dress that suits them —their style, their comfort and their body type.
Think about doing that when picking bridesmaid’s jewelry. Why does everyone have to get the same design or piece of jewelry? They don’t, any more than they have to wear the same dress style. If you’re the bride, ask your attendants how they feel about it — they’ll probably love the idea. And if you’re a bridesmaid, you might want to suggest it to the bride — or just send her a link here! With everything else they’re trying to get planned, most brides will welcome any suggestions that make their wedding planning easier. Although, be careful not to step on the bride’s toes and don’t be offended if she shoots down your idea. It’s her special day, after all, and she may already have a set picture in her mind of how she wants everyone to look.
From classic to modern
There are jewelry gifts for bridesmaids that remain timeless (and easy). A monogrammed yellow gold pendant, for instance, or a single pearl pendant or gemstone in one of your wedding colors will complement a formal dress well.
