We've all been there—standing in the dressing room of a department store, trying to mentally picture how the outfit will look in the real world, once it's been fully accessorized. It's the same with wedding gowns—as special as the dress itself may be, the wow factor really comes when the look is completed with a veil, necklace, earrings, etc.
Jewelry company Tejani is now offering New York brides a Bridal Fitting Service: A representative will meet you at any bridal salon for your fitting, and bring along up to ten pieces of jewelry for you to try on with your wedding gown, offering up accessory advice as well. Best of all, the service is totally free, and available seven days a week. So there will be no more mental guessing about whether or not your jewelry picks will match your gown.—Lauren Matthews; associate editor, Brides Local magazines
Wedding Wisdom: When picking what jewelry to wear with your gown, consider the neckline as well as the amount of embellishment on the bodice. For example, when wearing a V-neck dress, a necklace with a drop pendant is your best bet, as it visually elongates your neck. See the Fall 2008 issues of Brides Local Magazines, on newsstands now, for more jewelry advice.
