But be careful not to overdo it! The class of a bride always stands out for its good taste and the grace of its look, and it is known that with an excess of rhinestones or exaggerated stones one would only get the opposite result.

Earrings hanging from classic references
For a bride who chooses to say the fateful yes after sunset, the dangling earrings are a distinctive feature of style and elegance, and will be absolutely essential to complete your look too.
The bridal tradition, however, requires that a bride wear white pearls in her big day, as a symbol of purity and elegance. How about joining these two elements to create a new and completely modern image? Pearls yes, but with an extra touch!

It could be a beautiful emerald green or a bright ruby red, both perfect to give brightness to your evening ceremony!
For a very bright décolleté
A special case is the necklaces: many brides often renounce the use of this very elegant jewel because it is difficult to match with their own dress, especially when you are faced with necklines of a certain type or too elaborate bodices.
But if you have organized an evening reception in a minimal chic style and plan to wear a simple wedding dress without too gorgeous decorations, an original and graceful necklace will be what it takes to emphasize a sophisticated and classy outfit.
One of the trends most in vogue at the moment is to wear a choker necklace with references to the motifs of nature: flowers, leaves and ornaments of various types, all strictly shiny!
A noble touch
To finish off your outfit with a decidedly princely note you can’t miss a precious tiara, the indispensable jewel that will crown you as the undisputed queen of your wedding ceremony. The sparkling diamonds that will enrich your wedding hairstyle for loose or gathered hair are ideal to make you shine during a fun and elegant party under the stars.
An accessory as unique as the diadem also lends itself very well to all those evening receptions that however have nuances of vintage references: you can wear it just like a princess but you should not fear the stroke of midnight to escape its first dance!
Choose carefully the jewels that you will wear during your big day, but remember that for an evening reception all that glitters will never be inappropriate! And speaking of shiny look, have you already considered the idea of a bright pair of jeweled sandals or a small glittered clutch to complete your outfit?
