I didn’t look at any jewelry the day of dress shopping and now I am not sure how to pick out jewelry. My future Mother-In-Law wants to buy the jewelry for me, and my first fitting iscoming up so I could look at the bridal shop then but the problem is my Mother-In-Law lives 2 hours away…

Go jewelry shopping and try on with your dress. It’s tough, I’m in process of jewelry shopping and it is hard to be rushed with it. If you have it narrowed down you could ask your MIL if she wants to come up and do lunch and help you choose between two styles you like. It is always nice to get an opinion (sometimes :)) She might just send a check if she doesn’t want to drive up.

In order to pick your jewelry you need to consider:
1) your body shape
2) the shape of your gown
3) the shape of your face, neck, arms
4) your skintone
The easiest thing to define is the skintone, you already know which finish looks better on you. For me, it’s silver or platinum, I might pull it off with copper or brass but I need to stay away from gold, bigtime.
Also be careful with the color shades as far as pearls are concerned… if you don’t look good in gold, you probably don’t look good with cream or peach pearls either.
Everything that is “too horizontal” thickens you. Soooo…. a cuff or a multistrand bracelet is great on tiny wrists, as well as a choker looks divine on a tiny, long neck.
Everything vertical elongates you. So if your torso is short, wear a pendant or a rope of pearls. If your neck is short wear chandelier earrings.
If your pelvis is wide, wear a bib or a multistrand princess necklace to take the eyes away from your bottom.
Finally, you need to consider the shape of your gown and its neckline.
