Finishing Your Look

Jewellery is an important accessory to any dress.  It can complete your look, add some drama to a classic silhouette or hold special memories.  It can also push the overall cost of your dress to the limits.  After all, every smart bride knows that it’s not just the dress….it’s the undergarments, the shoes, the jewels and other accessories that make you the total package on your big day!


Finishing Your Look

If you need some inspiration, check out Stella and Dot.  This cool online jewellery store provides great styles and ideas for your dress no matter where you are!  I’ve chosen three different save and splurge styles options to add that finishing touch to your special day.

Save: Modern & Funky for less than $125

If you’re having a more modern, casual affair, you might love this gold Adele Cuff bracelet ($86) and “go with everything” drop Grace Pearl Earrings ($35).  Plus, this look is something you can wear again and again, making it a smart and savvy choice.

Splurge:  Art Deco Vintage for $160

If you want to add some Hollywood glamour to your big day, this elegant Heirloom Deco Bracelet ($109)  and Glint Flower Earrings ($49)  should do the trick!  Plus, this choice will catch the light for added sparkle as you dance the night away.

Splurge: Modern Pearl Elegance for $200

If pearls are your thing, this six strand freshwater Coin Pearl Bracelet ($168)  and Coin Pearl Earrings ($29)  are not your grandmother’s pearls, but still provide a timeless elegance.  To really splurge, there are some pretty necklaces that could really complete your look, depending on your dress and budget!
