Question: I don’t love jewelry. However, I feel like I should wear something special as a bride. What jewelry is most essential for a bride on her big day?

Nayri: Think hair, ears and wrist. There are three essential pieces a bride should wear on her wedding day: A veil or headpiece (or both), earrings and a bracelet. I’ll explain:

1. Hair Piece: This is where you get to personalize your look with your bridal gown! It is important to have something in your hair, even if not visible when seen head-on. Select either or both an embellished headpiece or comb, and veil. Veil-wise, opt for anything from a birdcage to dramatic cathedral veil. To have a little detail from behind is always lovely for photos.

2. Earrings: I love a bride with a bare neck and statement earrings. Ear detail and the neck left bare is absolute perfection! Even if you opt for a simpler look and don’t select a dramatic earring, something simple and classic will still work wonders.

3. Bracelet: Many don’t think of the wrist, but it offers a different focal point and is a great opportunity to show off detail. Think of photos during the cake cutting and champagne toast/sipping champagne, as both are great opportunities to let your wrist shine.
