I told my maids to wear anything silver/white gold! I don’t want to buy them jewelry and I trust their sense of judgement. I think telling them just pearls will work out fine! You can even show them yours and tell them where you bought it as a suggestion for them!

Speaking of, where did you buy it? I need my bridal jewelry…lol. 🙂

You’re also going to want to say “yellow gold,” “white gold,” “silver,” etc. I assume they’ll end up with white gold or silver because of their shoes, but you never know. I think otherwise you’re pretty safe with “pearls”. 🙂

With Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and outfits, less is definitely more. I’ve seen both sides where the girls wore a ton of jewelry and others where they just wore a simple and earrings or just earrings and a bracelet. I personally think pearl studs would be beautiful and simple and eleviate the stress of matching and having them buy extra things. Maybe as a present to jazz it up, you could buy them a really pretty bracelet to match as their Bridesmaid or Best Man gift.

I was in my best friend’s wedding over the summer and she requested we wear our pearl studs and she bought us matching triple strand pearl bracelets (faux, of course) and it was beautiful. For my girls, I will buy them something matching but like you, will have pearls so maybe a drop pearl earring or a cluster stud.

Anyways, my point is simple and maybe just have them do the studs and you can add a bracelet so it’s not too distracting. Good luck!

I don’t think dictating the Bridesmaid or Best Man jewlery is really necessary. I’ve only been in two weddings where we were told what jewlery to wear. No one is paying attention to what the BMs are wearing in the ears or on their neck. I’m sure they aren’t going to be wearing HUGE earrings or anything. The are grown and know what tasteful is.

Don’t worry about slight variations in color with the pearls – no one will ever be able to tell (not even in the pictures).  I told my girls to wear a single strand of pearls and pearl stud earrings and although they all had slight variations in the pearl color, you can’t tell at all!

I think that’s fine. I just told my girls to wear gold jewelry and highly encouraged them to be expressive of their personal style with it.  I trust all their style and don’t want to give them jewelry as gifts for the same reason you stated.  I know it will all look different but I like that.

You can never go wrong with pearls.

You can definitely tell each Bridesmaid to pick up their own set or get someone to make pearl sets, differently for each Bridesmaid or Best Man.

Good luck!

I LOOOOOVE your jewelry!!!

SO pretty!

i had to #pause at the pic of your wedding jewelry. it is so stunning! I also think the idea of letting everyone wear their own strain of pearls is a good idea.
