Drakes Fine Jewellers in Plymouth offer up their top tips for super styling your bridal ensemble...

"Every girl loves to accessorise and it doesnít get more exciting than accessorising your dream wedding dress!  Itís a brideís prerogative to take the limelight on the day and itís the little details that will make all the difference. With so much choice available hereís a few pointers to help get you started...

The dress comes first
Purchase your wedding dress first and then enjoy choosing jewellery that will complement and enhance it beautifully.  Take a photo of your dress and find a jeweller who will have fun working with you to create the perfect look.

Whatís your style?
Work with the style of your dress; if itís plain you can be more experimental with your jewellery, if itís embellished take this into account being careful not to overpower this feature.

DONíT wait until the last minute
Donít let your jewellery be an afterthought.  Purchase it in time for your dress fitting so you can have fun seeing your look come together. It also leaves time for last minute changes or additions; after all - a girl's allowed to change her mind!

Be aware of your hair
If your locks are going to be flowing on the day, avoid dainty earrings that will go unnoticed; statement earrings will add a touch of glamour to your look. If youíre opting for an Ďup doí, classic diamond studs never fail to impress and are a perfect investment piece.

Work within your budget
Not every bride is lucky enough to be able to adorn themselves in diamonds on the day but fear not, there are so many other beautiful options. Purchase one special piece and wear it with something borrowed; itís amazing what treasures Grans and Great Aunties have hidden away! Choose high quality cubic zirconia jewellery such as Diamonfire for a more affordable wow factor.

DONíT overdo it
Donít under accessorise but perhaps more importantly - donít over accessorise! If youíre opting for a statement necklace, a simple bracelet and studs will work best, so stay clear of the big chandelier earrings!"
