Frequently Asked Questions
What earrings should bridesmaids wear?
Bridesmaids tend to wear earrings either gifted to them by the marrying couple or within a colour theme or guide that fits within the bride’s vision. By coordinating earrings for bridesmaids, you create a stylish and cohesive look that echoes a wedding’s aesthetic or overall theme.
When looking for earrings, bridesmaids and the bride herself should consider how hair will be styled (for example, drop earrings look stunning paired with a glamorous wavy hairstyle), the neckline of their dresses, and their own individual tastes.
Diamond studs can look incredibly chic with a classic updo, showing off the full fire of their sparkle. Something larger with a little more movement, like dangle or drop earrings, are ideal for those wearing their hair down, adding a refined look to the style. A strapless gown or sweetheart neckline is tailor-made for the drama and elegance that diamond huggie earrings can offer, and can even add to the playfulness of an asymmetrical neckline, while a scoop neck or off-the-shoulder dress makes hoops or smaller earrings look subtle yet elegant.
Create a clean and uniform look by complementing the bride’s jewellery. Bridesmaids may like to wear rose gold earrings to match with the bride’s rose gold wedding band, or pair bridesmaid earrings in silver to link into her cluster pendant. Bridesmaid earrings can also be used to complement other wedding accessories, like a pavé bangle or solitaire pendant.
Whether you’re a traditional bride who prefers all jewellery to match or a contemporary bride who doesn’t mind a bit of individuality, it all comes down to personal style and the overall look you’re going for.
Are bridesmaid earrings a good gift?
Gifting a pair of earrings to your bridesmaid is an incredibly thoughtful gesture and can be a wonderful way to thank her for the special role that she is taking on your big day.
Earrings can not only be a beautiful keepsake and a token of your appreciation, but versatile, able to be worn again long after the big day. It’s also easy to find matching options when it comes to bridesmaid jewellery, so no one feels left out nor do you have to worry about specific sizes.
When selecting earrings as a gift, keep in mind the individual tastes and preferences of your bridesmaids to make them feel extra special.
Elegant hoops and small studs can be flexible enough to suit just about anyone and have an undeniably timeless appeal. Pearl drop earrings for a bridesmaid are also a classic choice and come with a lot of symbolism, representing femininity, patience, wisdom and, of course, love.
Have your gift complement your overall aesthetic or match with your own bridal jewellery, such as your engagement ring or wedding band. If you’re wearing a sterling silver pendant on the big day, why not give her a pair of silver bridesmaid earrings?
Bridesmaid earrings can have a lot of sentimental value and are a great opportunity to create memories with a loved one to last a lifetime - these are gifts that cannot be replicated.
What bridesmaids earrings are trending?
From the delicate to the decadent, the world is your oyster when it comes to bridesmaid earrings. Trending now are minimalist designs able to complement a wide range of looks and geometric shapes that give bridalwear a modern edge. Dainty gemstone accents are also on trend, offering subtle glam while enhancing the sparkle of other stones.
Rose gold bridesmaid earrings, whether a simple hoop, adorned with gemstones, or in a playful motif such as a clover or love heart, are gaining plenty of interest and popularity. Complete the set with a matching wedding necklace and bracelet and complement with a dress in romantic blush or a softer pink shade.
There’s also plenty of love for timeless favourites. Pearl bridesmaid earrings are the perfect accessory, representing eternal love and offering chic, understated appeal. Yellow gold bridesmaid earrings have a warm and regal beauty, especially when paired with diamond studs and pearl drop earrings. Style with a classy updo or with dresses in warm, earthy tones.
When looking for the perfect bridesmaid earrings, there are so many choices between timeless and modern, and a little bit of both, while still teaming with the overall theme of your wedding.
