Wedding Guest Jewelry Etiquette

JEWELRY ETIQUETTE SERIES

Wedding Season! Weddings are fun to attend, and they are one of the best events to dress up for and be fabulous. However, there are some things that a wedding guest should consider, particularly the type of jewelry that they would want to wear. We created a list of proper wedding jewelry etiquette for wedding guests.

A nice piece of jewelry can quickly enhance any type of outfit and looks best if it can radiate to last from the start of the wedding up until its end. Since you are required to dress classy and elegant, it is important to wear appropriate jewelry for the occasion, such as pearl jewelry. You may mix and match in accordance with the outfit you will be wearing, but make sure you do not overdo it.

Here are some tips to avoid a mishap when attending weddings, as a part of our Jewelry Etiquette Series. Here are 5 simple rules for wedding guest jewelry etiquette.

1. Avoid Statement Pieces

When attending a wedding, you must always keep in mind that the event is all about the couple getting married. Jewelry that stands out should be left to be worn by the bride and not by the guest. For wedding guest jewelry, wear jewelry that does not attract too much attention. You can wear elegant pieces, but make sure not to overdo it to the point that you are stealing the limelight from the bride.

2. Smaller is Better

3. Don't Overdo it 

As stated previously in this article, overdoing your jewelry is not recommended when attending a wedding. Wearing too much jewelry at a wedding could mean looking tacky to the point that you would look like you are outclassing someone at the event. What’s even worse, you may overshadow the couple, so it is best to keep a low profile but still look glamorous enough for the event. A common mistake is to stack bracelet jewelry when this is an informal look.

4. Avoid Diamond Jewelry

Diamonds are often regarded as one of the most elegant and stunning precious stones out there. When worn as jewelry, it will definitely attract attention and showcases glamour. When attending a wedding, please make sure not to wear jewelry with diamonds though. If they are your favorites, just wear something different for a day. Leave it for the bride to draw the attention she needs on her wedding day by wearing diamond jewelry instead of you. It's her day after all. (Yes, your wedding or engagement ring is fine.)

5. Pearls ALWAYS are Suitable for Weddings

Weddings are a classy event which requires a more refined taste. Pearl jewelry is elegant and suitable for any wedding. Pearls can be worn a number of ways such as Pearl Necklace, Pearl Earrings, Pearl Pendants, Pearl Rings, and Pearl Bracelets. Even if the wedding is less traditional, you can opt for a more cute style of pearls to match your attire. Pearls Earrings, for example, is one of the few pieces of jewelry that can take any outfit to the next level. You can always go for this safe bet when attending wedding events. It will surely give you enough class, and you will enjoy the wedding to the fullest.
