Does bridesmaid jewelry have to match? No! Find out why in today’s post…
It’s natural to assume with matching bridesmaid dresses and shoes, the jewelry worn by bridesmaids ought to be uniform. But it doesn’t have to be. Jewelry worn on your wedding day can be the same metal (as it looks best in photos), but allow it to be an opportunity for bridesmaids to wear anything they love best. If you’re giving jewelry as a gift to your bridesmaids, here are some tips to follow:
1.) Choose jewelry to reflect the individual — not the wedding theme
As much as you might love a pink color palette, it might be her least favorite shade. And that’s okay! Her dress and shoes already match, so loosen the grip on jewelry a bit. Pick something that is similar in look, but with her own unique style.

2.) The jewelry gift doesn’t have to be worn on the wedding day
You can choose jewelry as a gift without it being the “unofficial uniform” of the day. In this way, you can really go wild with colors and shapes and styles, picking out pieces she can wear everyday or for more formal occasions. Then, just ask bridesmaids wear the same metal (silver, gold, or rose gold) on the wedding day for uniformity in photos.

3.) Some bridesmaids don’t wear jewelry at all
I have a friend who wears no jewelry at all and never pierced her ears. Therefore, a gift of jewelry isn’t one that she would enjoy. Instead, we recommend choosing a different gift that’s more her style.
Of course, if you find a style you think they’d all love, go for it! Here’s a style that goes with anything:
