Bridal Styles

Written by Laura Stamper

Let's talk about different bride styles. There are five basic categories;
traditional, hippie (or new age) princess, Hollywood and Goth.

This issue will cover everything for the traditional bride's wedding.
The traditional bride is classic and timeless.

This style favors simple classic lines and time honored tradition.

The key here is simple elegance. Ivory white is often favored
by this style, and what goes better with ivory white than pearls?

Maybe you have your grandmothers pearls,
but if you don't what better time to start your
new life with a new heirloom piece of jewelry!
This hand knotted pearl necklace will be
something that is cherished for generations to come.

Soft White Large Freshwater Pearl Necklace

Simple earrings with an elegant updo to frame
a pretty face can be found in a post or a dangle:

White Pearl Stud Earrings in Sterling Silver

White Freshwater Pearl Dangle Earrings in Sterling Silver
For bridesmaids, again think in terms of "less is more".

White Pearl Hoop Dangles for Non-Pierced Ears

For the mother of the bride (or groom) a little color may be called for:

 Lampwork Glass, Pearl and Crystal Earrings

Perhaps one of these fabulous necklaces!

Fine Silver and Blue Pearl Crystal Flower Necklace

Dark Mauve and Dusty Rose Twisted Necklace

And don't forget the flower girl!

Crystal Cluster with Gunmetal Bobby Pins

White Pearl Jewelry Set for Children

Next time, we will take a look at
jewelry for the hippie, or new age bride.
