What to Wear to a Wedding: Jewelry Edit

You’ve found your perfect wedding day guest dress and are ready to toast the bride and groom. Maybe your dress is an existing favorite or a new frock that needs to go the distance for a busy wedding season. Styling your jewelry differently for each event is a great way to make an existing favorite feel new and make your fashion dollars stretch. Try these classic looks to create the perfect special occasion jewelry look:


Classic Pearl Necklace with a Modern Twist


Pearls are always a good idea. They’re timeless and pair well with almost all special occasion styles. You don’t have to stick to the classic pearl necklace or pearl studs either! The Delicate Double Pearl Pendant Necklace is a great option for a modern take on a classic pearl necklace. The freshwater pearl suspended delicately below a shiny gold pendant makes this layered pendant necklace a perfect accessory for any wedding guest attire. It is also versatile and each strand can be worn separately as well.

Recycle for the Season: Mix Up Your Wedding Guest Jewelry to Create a New Look


Do you have numerous weddings to attend in a short period of time? Obviously, you want to look good at every occasion, but do you really need to break the bank to do so. This is definitely the time to be (dare I say it…)  an outfit repeater – try pairing a monochrome or simple dress with different statement pieces to create different looks. Whether it be a simple dress with a versatile statement necklace or fun feather earrings you can definitely recycle your looks without it being noticeable. P.S. Yes, you can still post each outfit on Instagram.

Add a Pop of Color with your Accessories
Weddings are a time for celebration, and nothing says “let’s celebrate” like a pop of color. You can leave the diamonds to be worn by the bride and help create some contrast by wearing colored gems. The Hatley Baguette Necklace is a perfect piece because it incorporates some color into your outfit subtly. A little color never hurt anyone, and as a wedding guest, it is a perfect occasion to show off your colorful side.

Special Occasion Bracelets

Although they ’re sometimes overlooked, bracelets can take an outfit to the next level just as well as a statement necklace or earring can. Pair your wedding guest look with an eye-catching cuff or bangle to instantly elevate your look to special occasion status. The Thea Lace Cuff and Pegagus Bracelet are both the perfect addition to any outfit due to their colors and bold, but elegantly detailed features. Just remember that a wedding is no time to neglect a perfectly good arm party.


Weddings are meant to be fun for both the couple and their guests! There’s absolutely no need to stress over finding the perfect outfit. Wear what you feel most comfortable in (as long as it’s not white) and you are sure to have a fantastic time. If you still need help picking out some special occasion jewelry for this wedding season, be sure to ask your Stella and Dot Stylist – they can help you find your perfect match.
