Do their dresses all match or are they different? When the dresses are all the same I much prefer variations in the jewelry. If you’re not open to allowing them to wear what they want or already have how about choosing complementary necklaces?

I would just tell them to wear whatever jewelry they want.  No one will really notice their jewelry and you certainly won’t see it all that clearly in pictures, unless your photog likes to really get up close and personal to people’s ears or necks.

Of the four weddings I’ve been in, only one asked us to wear specific jewelry (she also did not pay for it).  I don’t think wearing matching jewelry is necessary.  My girls tend to wear more understated jewelry anyway, so I know they will look beautiful.  I did purchase bracelets for them and some jewelry, but they’re not required to wear it for the wedding, I just bought them pieces I thought they would like.  If you are requiring jewelry, please pay for it though.  I never wore the jewelry from my friend’s wedding again, it’s just not my style, and I was irritated I had to shell out money for it.

I like the different dresses with matching jewelry. I always think that looks nice b/c it’s still consistant.

I think if you require something you should provide it. I gave all my girls a set of lavender pearl studs and matching bracelet with gold clasps. They wore them for the wedding (blush dresses) and they send me pics of them wearing them since then which is sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ I figured it was something classic they could wear again. I did give guidelines for necklaces because they asked – dainty necklaces all good, but I asked them to skip big statement necklaces as I thought it would look odd on just one or two of them.

I told my maids no jewelry, except for earrings if they want to wear them. Bridesmaid dresses always look beautiful in the photos with the models, and usually the only difference is that they aren’t wearing jewelry! Also I was in a pageant recently, and the coaches advise against wearing necklaces because they distract from the face and dress ๐Ÿ™‚

I got all 13 of my birdesmaids a silver bracelet to wear on their wrist facing the guests at the wedding and then a pair of purple earrings since their dresses were purples.  Have you ever heard of Sam Moon?  They have really cheap stuff!! all the earrings were $4.95 and then I got the bracelets from Charming Charlie for $6 each.  I asked my ladies to only wear the stuff I was going to give them- and of course their wedding rings, but I think they looked great.  I’ve also worn the same earrings as MOH a few years ago in clear crystal- check out Sammoon.com ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, make sure that if you are buying   non-precious metal, that no one   has an allergy, lot of us do!
