I have been going backwards and forwards on wedding day jewellery for ages and just have no idea really! My engagement ring (and wedding ring) are yellow gold, and the rest of the jewellery I wear is yellow gold, I very very rarely wear white gold/silver/platinum. I am stuck on whether to go for pearls or yellow gold for wedding jewellery – I’m looking for earrings and a necklace. I know the two are very different but I am clueless what to go with to be honest so I need some opinions please! I normally wear very simple jewellery e.g gold chain with single diamond pendant on it, simple drop earrings or studs.
My dress is below and a close up of the detail is below. Our wedding is in a church, but our reception is fairly outdoorsey & as you can see my dress because of the chiffon is quite informal. I am wearing a fingertip veil & flowers in my hair. I can’t work out what jewellery will look ok with this really!
Do you think I am better to go with yellow gold or pearls for my jewellery? Any opinions would be a huge help – thanks ladies!!

I say go with pearls, but i’m a pearl girl myself, so i’m biased 🙂 pearls are just so classic and timeless and beautiful and will look great with your dress!

I voted for pearls. I like both pearls and yellow gold, but I think that the pearls might match the beading on your dress better (the beading has a silvery colour in my opinion).

Thank you very much ladies, I think you have just helped me make the decision quickly & easily – pearls it is 🙂 I just wasn’t sure if my dress was too informal for them, but I think I just need to find the right pearls & as you say, the dress has silvery bits to it so the yellow gold might look odd!
Thank you 🙂
@ustechie: Thanks for the link, I am happily looking through the ideas now as some of them combine yellow gold & pearl earrings which may be a happy mix 🙂 Thank you!

@NearlyMrsMac: Pearls are a lovely choice for your dress! Now you only have to decide which ones to wear 😉
