An Event They’ll Never Forget
How to plan, style and dress for a celebration as unique as you are
I’m wearing a simple, flowing silk halter dress with just a hint of beading at the waist for my beach wedding in early summer. What jewelry would you recommend to offset my fairly minimalist gown?
our choice of a beach wedding already speaks to your natural and elegant taste. The last thing you want to do is weigh down your look with overstated or excessive jewelry of any kind. Bring attention to your face! I recommend a pair of teardrop earrings, possibly something accented with diamonds and rose quartz for a subtle splash of color. The delicate curves of the teardrop will create a soft, feminine look. The stone and diamond accents will work well with the mid-body beading of your flowing gown. Anything more, and the jewelry will distract from the glow you are sure to project on your wedding day! tiffany kay, Vice President of Merchandising Scott Kay Jewelry
I love all the colorful wedding gowns I’ve been seeing on the runway, but I don’t want to choose a look that’s too trendy or will date my wedding photos. Is there a way to keep my bridal look classic while incorporating a bit of color into my style?
think outside the box of the traditional wedding palette. Don’t be afraid to add color — especially brights!

t is true that colorful dresses are in fashion; however, if you want to keep your style classic you may want to go with a pink blush gown. Blush and pink bridal gowns add a hint of color but are soft enough to be timeless. Accessories such as your shoes, handbag and flowers are a great opportunity to think outside the box of the traditional wedding palette. Don’t be afraid to add color — especially brights! I love the idea of blue heels as your “something blue.” This season, we are also seeing lots of bridal shoes with touches of lace and gold. Or you can have your bridesmaids’ bouquets be a different color for each bridesmaid. Your bouquet can be a combination of all of them, or just pick your favorite! And you can always carry a colorful clutch with interesting texture and embellishments. sade awe, Founder The Bridal Circle
