Disney Princesses On Instagram

Whenever I come across these, they make me laugh because not only are these characters our pop culture idols of the past – what they say rings true to exactly how I imagine they would #hashtag and share things with their followers, being us. Plus, they are 99% better than most of the celebrities out there!

Guest Contribution : How to choose the right metal jewellery for your big day

 

This bride has a mixed skin tone with chocolate coloured eyes yet creamy, pinkish skin you can see on the collarbone. Silver with a warm-coloured stone flatters both tones and the slightly off-white dress.

As with any outfit, making sure your accessories, clothing and shoes match is a vital part of the dressing up process. This is even more important on your wedding day. Every bride wants to look their best and a co-ordinated outfit will definitely give you that flawless, beautiful look. When it comes to accessories one of the easiest ways to make sure you’re outfit is well matched is to choose the most flattering metal jewellery.

The most vital aspect to look at is your skin tone. But how to you figure out what yours is? Here are a few tips. I’ve omitted hair colour is it’s often irrelevant as dying hair is so common.

Cool tones:

  •          Have pink undertones if skin colour is light or little undertone or a hint of sallowness if dark (Azealia Banks is a great example of dark cool skin). Skin looks a crisp and almost cool to the touch.
  •          Eye colour is blue, grey or almost black.
  •          Looking at your veins in direct sunlight they appear blue.
  •          You have been told you flatter the colours blue, jewel green, pink, blue-based red, pure black and pure white etc.

Warm tones:

  •          The skin colour is often in the mid-range; if dark or pale the undertones are yellow and make the skin look warm.
  •          Eyes are usually warm tones of brown, green and hazel.
  •          In sunlight your veins look green.
  •          You’ve been told you look good in off-white or cream, brown, orangy reds, wine coloured purples and natural greens. If you look good in khaki you’re probably warm.

Once you’ve got a rough idea what metal you should suit take a look at your dress. There is more than one tone of white! Crisp white dresses with hard lines, simple sleekness or lots of diamante will often look better combined with silver jewellery. If you’re dress is one of the colours listed in the cool section silver is definitely the best choice. If the dress has an invitingly warm hint it’s likely to be an off-white colour, which is far better with gold pieces. Often dresses with ruffles and dresses with a lot of volume look better with gold jewellery as gold can be worn more simply while still looking luxurious. As above, if the dress is cream or any of the listed warm colours gold is definitely the way to go.

The big issue is that most of us are a mix of skin tones. You could look great in a champagne coloured dress but not look good in gold. If this is the case stick to the metal you know looks good on you. To bring colours from the opposite end of the spectrum look for details in the dress’s colour spectrum. If you have a cream dress but are cool choose silver jewellery, look for some with off-white pearls or stones in a warm colour such as amber or ruby. As a cool toned woman myself I’ve used similar silver jewellery with amber to warm up my daily outfits too! This is both a great way to make your jewellery stand out as well as harmonise the wedding outfit colours. To cool down gold diamonds are always a good choice, or look for pure white pearl and stones in jewel colours such as sapphire and emerald.

One last area to consider is the style of your wedding. If you’re wearing a dark blue silky dress you’d think silver jewellery is the answer, but if you’re getting married on a sunny beach gold and its association with the summer holidays would suit the wedding far more (your skin should be getting a nice warm glow from all the sunshine anyway!). A more formal, traditional wedding might mean that silver jewellery flatters you best, while a wedding out in nature might require you to stock up on natural materials like pearl and stones and experiment with both metals for the best affect.

I hope this gives any bride-to -be some ideas for choosing the best metal jewellery for their big day. Having a rough idea of the colours that fit together takes a huge chunk of stress out of matching your dress and your jewellery together.

Drop the Bouquet, Throw a Cat

Throwing a bouquet at your wedding? That’s so… 1999. The new meme that has surfaced throughout the interwebs is brides throwing cats at their weddings to a bunch of single ladies.Brides Throwing Cats (1)

Brides Throwing Cats (2)This makes so much more sense. A lot of the single ladies would make an effort to grab the cat flying through the air unlike suble-side-steps to avoid the bouquet.Brides Throwing Cats (3)

Guest Contribution : Picking the Perfect Pearls for your Dress

Whilst weddings are a momentous and joyous occasion, one that you have probably envisaged since you were a little girl, the run-up can be stressful, time-consuming, even all-consuming!  Whilst there is enormous amounts of preparations, organisation, guest politics, who to invite, who’s vegetarian? coeliac? gluten-free? – you get the point! – Relieve some of the pressure with these stunning jewels which are guaranteed to pull your wedding attire together and ensure your day goes smoothly (well in the looks department at least!)

Yes it is a given that the wedding dress plays a huge factor in the bride’s overall look but coming in a close second is her choice of jewellery as this can either make or break a look.  Whilst there is a whole treasure trove of choice, one of the most popular of all jewels are still pearls.

Pearls have retained their status as the go-to wedding jewel as they have a perennial elegance that never looks dated.  Pearls can be worn with modern dresses or more traditional designs.  These lustrous, highly versatile beauties are one of the few gemstones which appeal to all generations.

Most brides are interested in achieving a highly sophisticated look which oozes understated glamour and this is easily achievable with pearl jewellery.

TraditionalTraditional

If you are opting for a traditional dress with a fitted and bodice with a flowing, ball gown-esque skirt then a classic pearl necklace is the perfect option to create harmony throughout your look and pull everything together.  Choose a bridal pearl necklace from Winterson made with the finest cultured saltwater Akoya pearls for a look that exudes luxury, glamour and ultimately sophistication.  These pearls, traditionally cultured in Japan, should be round, with a sharp lustre and pinky white colour. Sitting just below the collarbone, the length of this necklace will bring the focus to your face whilst creating a demure and ethereal aura around you.

 

 ModernModern

If you have decided on a more modern, slinky and ‘bodycon’ dress, then I would suggest a simple pearl pendant.  A luxurious white South Sea pearl and diamond pendant necklace will perfectly balance out your wedding look but will not detract from the dress.  With a silky lustre which radiates beauty, there is little wonder why pearls are the wedding jewel of choice.  This exquisite piece (featured below) also features a dazzling diamond set above the pearl to add to the luxury of this pendant.  This piece will not only see through your wedding day in style, but will also become a firm favourite in your jewellery wardrobe.

 

BohemianBohemian

For the romantic, slightly quirky, bohemian bride, choose freshwater coin pearls.  These type of pearls have a distinctive, slightly irregular and jaunty, baroque shape.  Each pearl is unique thus creating a carefree, laidback look rather than a more traditional, polished style.  If this is the look you are trying to pull off then this White Freshwater Coin Pearl Bracelet would look stunning on the wrist of any lace-clad, billowy-sleeved bride.
