Bold and Beautiful
Nothing makes more of a statement than a bold piece of jewelry. We’re starting to see more and more brides these days expressing their personalities and individuality by donning bolder accessories. Whether it be in the form of a bib necklace, chandelier earrings or a sparkly cocktail ring (to dress up your other hand, of course), an eye-catching piece of jewelry will certainly make you stand out.
Rule of thumb #1: Make sure to choose just one bold piece to wear at a time. You want everyone focusing on your glowing face — not your baubles!
Rule of thumb #2: Louder accessories best complement simpler, more understated dresses.
Check out Etsy online http://www.etsy.com/ for some unique, handcrafted accessories (and everything else under the sun). Anthropologie, Banana Republic and J Crew are always reliable for great pieces as well, but if you truly want something one-of-a-kind, check out your local thrift or secondhand shops for some hidden vintage treasures!
