Should the jewelry for me and my bridesmaids be the same metal?
Posted: Jun 18, 2009 6:27 AM

Hey everyone,
I would really appreciate anyone's input on my question. I am wearing an ivory dress and my bridesmaids are wearing a dark purple/eggplant color for the dresses. The girls have already decided to wear silver sparkly shoes and so I am going to get them silver jewelry. I have been thinking about my jewelry, and am considering gold since my dress is ivory. I love silver, but think gold might look good as well. So my question is, does my jewelry and my bridesmaids have to be the same metal?

Thanks in advance for anyone's input,

Sarah

Hi Sarah, the same principle applies. Just as your BM's shouldn't have the same hairstyles and make-up, their accessories may be different as well. It should be cohesive but still unique and individual to each BM and Bride. I think your idea of having gold jewellery with ivory, will be a beautiful combination and agree will look much better than silver.

No, I don't think that your jewelry has to match your bridesmaids' . Your dress, your hair and your jewels should be different. You're the bride, you should stand out.

Wear what you want and it will be great.

Because seriously, who will be focusing whether or not the bridal party has matching jewelery on your wedding day?

Definitely not... in fact the jewelry I wore didn't technically match. My engagement ring and wedding band are gold, my earrings were silver. I think the days of everything being matchy matchy are over. And like a PP said, no one is going to notice the jewelry at all. I know as brides we focus on all these details, and while there is nothing wrong with that, don't let these little details become your main focus. While you want your day to beautiful, the most beautiful part will be you marrying your FH. Best Wishes!

Defintely does not have to match like the pp's said! And don't forget alternatives like rose gold!

It does not have to match. I prefer white gold/silver and we were using silver as an accent color, so yes, we were all in silver.

But that is not a necessity.
