Pearl earrings are a perennial favorite for brides. Aesthetically, they fit the occasion thanks to their glamorous luster and elegant personality. And because they're so versatile, pearl earrings can be worn long after your wedding. In fact, whether they're vintage pearl studs or on-trend drop earrings in a rose gold setting, pearl earrings are a staple of a jewelry collection.
Many lucky brides receive their first cultured or freshwater pearl earrings as a wedding gift. Traditionally, pearls worn as wedding earrings tended to be white, but modern brides can opt for black pearls (which are actually dark gray) or other shades, such as pale pink or nude.
Stud earrings are always a classic wedding look. Some studs are embellished with small diamonds or gemstones for extra glamour. And since a variety of shades are available, you can pick pearl earrings in tones to match your wedding colors. If pearl earrings are your only jewelry, you can also choose a style that is a true statement piece, such as dramatic teardrops or chic chandeliers. One of the best things about pearls is that they always look timeless and ladylike, no matter what the design.
Bridesmaids' gifts show your bevy of besties how much you appreciate the support they gave you throughout your wedding prep and the big day. These bridesmaids helped you select a wedding dress, offered a shoulder cry on and laughed with you during the long, fun and stressful wedding day. Giving a fabulous bridesmaids gift is a traditional gesture of appreciation. We love bridesmaids gifts that are stylish, useful and possess universal appeal, particularly if they are cushy "extras" that your bridesmaids typically wouldn't have bought for themselves. So don't fret: We've rounded up the coolest bridesmaids gifts, including pieces from Anthropologie, Amazon and ASOS, to give you a list of gifts they will truly love.
Every bride wants to look like she just returned from some sun-kissed Caribbean beach on her big day. But what if your fair complexion is that of a traditional English rose, all creamy porcelain with hints of blush? You know that not even equator-strength sun will produce a natural tan. (Besides, you want to stave off sun-borne wrinkles forever!) Enter the self-tanner: Self-tanners from our mothers' era were renowned for taking the user on a visit to Oompa-Loompaland. Fortunately, modern self-tanners are much improved, but you still need a sherpa to guide you up the mountain of products that promise glow-worthy results. Check out our list of top self-tanners from Amazon, Sephora, Nordstrom and more that'll give brides a soft, natural-looking glow without sun exposure. But before you use any of them, a pro tip: To stay free of streaks, exfoliate 24 hours prior to use, smooth the product evenly over freshly cleansed skin, and wash immediately hands after use. Now, get glowing!
After you've picked out your wedding gown, shoes and veil, it's time to choose that last accent: the handbag. Despite your maid of honor's promises to take care of all your needs, don't forget that bridal purse – because you WILL want a lipstick at some point.
Wedding purses and clutches are itsy-bitsy by tradition. (It should be nowhere near as big as your typical day bag!) Bridal clutches need only hold a cell phone, a lipstick, some breath mints and a hankie. Think "dainty." To aid your wedding shopping mission, we scoured some of our favorite online stores to find inexpensive bridal handbags that look pricey. In fact, despite their designer origins – Rebecca Minkoff, Ted Baker of London, White by Vera Wang – every purse on our list sells for under $100. Here are some of the prettiest wedding purses and clutches from David's Bridal, Macy's, Nordstrom and more.
