How to wear them
Traditionally, pearls are worn by a bride as their something borrowed from a family member. This can be in the form of pearl earrings or a delicate necklace. Instead, consider adorning pearls to a delicate bridal cape or veil for a modern alternative.
A beaded headband can elevate your bridal ensemble, whether small or large, extravagant beads are used. Wearing a pearl back necklace can help give added dimension to a low V-back wedding dress. Add a few layers of pearl necklaces for a bohemian-style bridal look and a pearl headpiece would perfectly suit a 1920’s themed wedding.
If you’re looking for a more subtle approach to wearing pearls, consider including them in your bridal nails. Adding tiny pearl beads to your French manicure or nude nails creates a pretty, contemporary look without detracting from the rest of your wedding outfit.
Pearls, pearls, pearls
Of course, there are a plethora of ways to add pearls to your big day. Speak with your florist and try incorporating small pearls into to your bouquet, whether they are paired with fresh or dried flowers or a combination of the two.
Discuss adding edible pearls to your wedding cake to add texture to the design or including the non-edible kind to your groom’s boutonniere. You could even incorporate them into your bridal make-up, adding delicate beading to your eyes to make them pop. The possibilities of adding pearls to your wedding day are endless, so get creative.
