15 ONE-OF-A-KIND STATEMENT PIECES TO GLAM UP YOUR WEDDING DRESS
One of the most asked questions about our wedding is if there was anything I wish I’d done differently and whilst I am beyond thrilled with how the day went, one little thing that still niggles me today, is that I didn’t think about wearing jewellery. I got so caught up in the dress that I completely forgot about accessorising and I kind of feel like I really missed out on trying to search out that one gorgeous alternative piece, not only to wear with my dress but again and again, as a keepsake of the day.
As I wasn’t able to do it for my own wedding day I thought I could put together a list of some of the pieces I might have worn for inspiration and as a reminder to accessorise for any soon-to-be-married couples reading this.
Inspired by my love of all thing’s gold and one of kind, I picked out 15 of my favourite statement pieces from Carus Jewellery. Not only would each of these items look amazing with your wedding dress but with multiple other outfits so you can wear again and again.
With a range of options for all different styles and budgets, Carus Jewellery has a unique collection of antique jewellery ranging from necklaces and earrings to brooches and bracelets. Every piece of jewellery in their collection is a unique one-of-a-kind piece, with its own history and story making it the perfect choice for a ‘bespoke bride’.
I hope you love my favourite pieces as much as I do! Let’s get started…
