My bridesmaids are asking me what type of jewelry they can wear. Each of them picked their own style of dress (all are dyed in pewter chiffon). I am not dictatingtheir hairstyle or makeup. I am not planning to purchase jewelry because I have other gifts for them. My dress is strapless, and I am wearing a three-strand pearl necklace. I was thinking of letting them choose either pearls or silver jewelry. I like the idea of letting them personalize their own look, but I can’t decide if I’m ok with them wearing pearls. If it were you, would you want one of your bridesmaids wearing pearls if that’s what you (the bride) were planning to wear? Or am I making it a bigger deal than it really is?

I don’t think pearls would clash if they all had them, but I think it would be slightly odd if some had pearls and some didn’t.
*IF it was me* I’d say silver, but then when it was me I bought them matching dresses and necklaces to be sure! But you seem more relaxed about it all <3

I think it’d be fine if you let them chose any pearls or silver jewelry. You may wish to let them know what you’re wearing, and ask them to choose something that’s not exactly the same or same idea but bigger, if you care about things like that or think one of them may go a little flashier than you want.
Edit: FWIW, I wore pearls and my girls had pearls too. Mine were a single strand and theirs were in an arrangement on a chain.

I think letting them choose their own (with a few guidelines) is a great idea. And no, I don’t think that pearls on the bride and bridesmaids will clash. Your dress is what makes you special on that day, the jewelrey is just an enhancer.
