After asking your wedding party to be a part of your big day, and selecting their day-of ‘fits, you might think you have everything checked off regarding bridesmaids. But as it turns out, accessories are actually key to pulling an entire wedding look together for a celebration. While there are lots of options to choose from, we love when brides opt for a special pair of earrings to gift their bridesmaids—in order to help them stand out and remember the day long after the I dos are done.
While no one needs to buy their bridal party earrings, it's a great way to cut down on costs (because attending a wedding is a big undertaking, financially), and to thank them for being an important part of your life. Even better, earrings are one of the best bridal party gifts you can give since you don’t have to worry about specific sizes, and it’s easy to get matching options for everyone.
Whether you want your crew to wear simple studs, showstopping statement dangles, or pretty pearls, we’ve found the perfect pair for your big day and best babes. Ahead, we've rounded up the best bridesmaid earrings for every season, budget, and bridal style so your party can celebrate you in style.

What are bridesmaid earrings?
Bridesmaid earrings are simply earrings your bridesmaid wear on your wedding day. To note, when shopping for wedding accessories, you’ll want to consider how the items will look with the rest of your bridesmaids’ ensemble, as well as the overall aesthetic of your celebration in general.
Are bridesmaid earrings expensive?
Bridesmaid earrings range in price, but depending on your budget and style, there’s no right or wrong amount you should/shouldn’t spend. Some brides choose to gift their bridesmaids earrings as a “thank you” for standing by their side, while others choose to simply let their maids wear something they already own.
Who buys bridesmaids’ earrings?
If you’re asking your bridesmaids to wear a specific style of earring or want everyone to match, it’s a good idea to purchase the pairs yourself since adding in extra accessories will increase day-of costs. That said, if you don’t mind what accessories your bridesmaids wear (or you’re fine with something general), you can get away with not buying new jewelry for all your friends.
