Choosing wedding jewelry for a short wedding dress

short wedding gowns bridal jewelry

Wearing a short wedding dress is a statement all on its own and choosing the right wedding jewelry is what will glam up a short dress and make it wedding-worthy.

If you’re daring enough to go short, don’t take any shortcuts when it comes to your wedding jewelry, wear eye-catching pieces. Think of sleek yet intricate jewelry with small crystals for that all over shimmer or bold statement pieces like a wide bracelet with larger crystals.

Your wedding jewelry accessories should add that extra touch of glamour to your short dress that makes you standout as the bride.

Here is how we would accessories some short bridal dresses to really make your wedding day ensemble look spectacular.


We adore this organza halter-neck full skirt short dress by J. Mendel from the Spring Bridal 2015 collection. Play up the jacquard texture of this bridal dress with some equally textured pieces. The Waterfall Chandelier Earring mimics the full shape of the skirt and the small round crystals and pear shaped crystals add the perfect amount of sparkle and texture. With the halter-neck line, its best to skip a necklace, but do add a gorgeous hair comb to your wedding jewelry selection like this Crystal Deco Swirl Hair Comb. To bring the look together and add some more drama, incorporate a wide bracelet for some major arm candy. We’ve selected the Square Crystal Links Bracelet.

If your short dress has a more vintage feel, like this strapless corseted dress by Zac Posen, choose pieces that are a bit more romantic and classic in their design. The crystal pattern of the Bridal Crystal Pearl Drop Earring pairs nicely with lace details of the dress and the shimmering pearl will add more of that vintage feel. Consider stacking two bracelets on one wrist for a modern update, we think the Bridal Crystal Marquise Swirl Bracelet and the Bridal Floral Crystal Bracelet work nicely together and are a compliment to the Bridal Crystal Pearl Drop Earrings. For hair accessories, we love how this dress was styled with a blusher veil and recommend the Large Hair Comb with Large and Small Gardenias as a beautiful alternative.

For a fun and flirty short dress, pair it with fun wedding jewelry accessories that really sparkle. This strapless short dress with a structured skirt by Peter Langner is truly all about the details. When choosing your accessories, look for pieces with beautiful details that compliment the dress but do not overshadow it. For earrings, the curves of the White Gold Pearl and Diamond Earrings add some serious elegance to this whimsical look. A statement necklace will bring the right amount of glitz to your wedding day, we adore the Bridal Vintage Ribbon Necklace with this look. Polish of your wedding jewelry accessories with this Caleigh Swarovski Crystal Comb to amp up the romance.
