Should You Let Your Bridesmaids Wear Their Own Jewelry to Your Wedding?

Many brides and grooms debate whether they should give their bridal party the freedom to make style choices.

Some think it's best to dictate every aspect of their look, while others choose to be more lax with their fashion rules.

It’s totally up to you, but there are some things to consider before making this decision.

Everyone has their own taste and style, so if you want your girls to look uniform, choosing their jewelry is best. However, if all your bridesmaids have excellent taste, let them make a few accessory decisions themselves.

But, even if you love each of their unique, personal styles, letting everyone put the finishing touches on their look could go wrong for a few reasons:

• Your junior bridesmaid might decide to wear her favorite casual layered necklace.
• Your maid of honor might choose to accessorize with a glitzy Swarovski crystal statement necklace.
• Your best friend from college might decide to rock a gold choker.
• Your other bridesmaids might opt for a simple bar necklace, a strand of pearls, or no necklace at all.

If you don’t set some rules early on, you could end up with a mix of white gold, rose gold, and sterling silver in all different looks and styles.

And this is what makes jewelry gifts perfect! 

It sends the message of “Thanks for being a part of my wedding” rather than “I don’t love your taste in jewelry.”

It’s a win-win!

Bridesmaid Jewelry Is the Perfect Gift!

Bridesmaids typically pay for their dresses, shoes, bridal shower gifts, and bachelorette party festivities. Giving them jewelry as a bridesmaid gift eliminates an added wedding party expense. It also ensures that your girls look exactly how you want them to on the big day.

Depending on the style and vibe of your wedding, you might choose:

• A delicate bridesmaid necklace
• Bridesmaid earrings that make a big, bold statement
• A bridesmaid bracelet that offers a hint of sparkle and shine

Necklaces are perfect if your girls are wearing V-necklines or strapless dresses. A simple gold necklace, a solitaire pendant necklace, or a necklace set will perfectly complement their wedding day look!

For bridesmaids wearing high necklines or halter dresses, a necklace is unnecessary. Instead, consider giving them a delicate pearl bracelet or a pair of pretty earrings.

Choose Jewelry Based on the Bride’s Style

Bridesmaid jewelry doesn’t need to match the bride’s jewelry. But they should complement each other.

For example, if the bride wears a pearl and diamond necklace, the bridesmaids will look stunning in a simple strand of pearls. If the bride wears dangling diamond earrings, the bridesmaids will look amazing in sparkling diamond studs.

No matter what jewelry you choose, make sure it complements the bride’s jewelry without being too matchy-matchy. 

The bride should ALWAYS stand out!

Choose Jewelry Based on the Formality of Your Wedding

Keep the formality and theme of your wedding in mind when choosing bridesmaid jewelry gifts.  

For a boho or rustic wedding, keep your jewelry simple and understated.

If you’re getting married on the beach or in a barn, a simple pair of dangle earrings or a bridesmaid jewelry set with a dainty bracelet and necklace may be all you need.

For a lavish and glamorous black-tie affair in a super fancy venue, opt for diamonds, crystals, or rhinestones that shimmer and shine! 

For a traditional, formal wedding, stick with classic jewelry. Diamond stud earrings or freshwater pearl necklaces are always a great choice.

Bridesmaids Don’t Have to Wear the Same Jewelry

If you decide to gift your bridesmaids with jewelry for the wedding day, don’t feel obligated to give everyone the same gift.

It’s perfectly fine to mix it up and give different pieces of jewelry to each person. If your girls are wearing mixed-and-matched bridesmaid dresses, giving them different jewelry is a great way to go. 

Not only will it make your gifts seem more personal, but it will allow you the freedom to pair a particular piece of jewelry with each dress.
