The first thing to consider when choosing the best earrings for wedding day dominance is the style of your gown and your overall look. A minimalist bride may wish to pick tasteful stud earrings to embody the “less is more” vibe. Or, a bride might choose to go with statement earrings to turn up the volume on a sleek and simple silhouette. How you plan on wearing your hair is another key factor in picking the perfect wedding day earrings. An updo can support more dramatic jewelry choices while soft beach waves are typically more conducive to delicate drop earrings or understated studs.
