Wedding planning can be very stressful and time consuming, and when it comes to it, choosing the right dress is the most fun thing to do.
When choosing the right dress you should always consider the jewelry you’ll wear with it. The jewelry is actually the finishing touch that will truly make your look when you walk down the aisle.
Before you turn on your laptop and plan on spending hours on Pinterest looking for the right dress and jewelry, take a look at the über-chic bride-to-be Gina Ybarra. While you’ll have to wait until the big day to find out which dress the Hunt for Styles blogger ultimately chose, we can tell you that she’ll be accessorizing with luxe pieces from Kendra Scott’s new bridal collection.
This “boho yet chic” bride-to-be lives in San Diego, but she’s planning her wedding at an oceanside villa in Mexico, where she’s originally from. And her dress choice will be largely influenced by the coastal location and her love for vintage style, which is why most of the styles she tried on had gorgeous lace and crochet detailing.
The first dress Ybarra tried was a strapless contour gown with a sweetheart neckline (perfect for showing off her jewels!).
“I recommend basing your hairstyle on the jewelry you want to accentuate,” Ybarra says as she tries on the veil with this half-up, half-down style. Her bracelet, necklace, and earrings are dainty enough that they don’t take away from the statement-making veil.
She also considered a full updo so she could show off the back of the lariat necklace she’s wearing here. No one ever said you can’t do a hair change after the ceremony, and this necklace is definitely worth the cost of keeping your hairdresser on retainer.
With her minimalistic dress style, she can make a bolder statement with her jewelry. Here, her double-bracelet look shows off her personal style while still feeling really elevated.
Her sister and also maid of honor joined the fun too. She proves that the collection is just as wearable for the bride as it is for any wedding guest.
As for her second look, Ybarra put on a princess-style short-sleeve embroidered dress. This time she tested out a truly glamorous bohemian look complete with loose beach waves and a glitzy crown.
Because the top is quite busy, she chose not to wear any necklace. Instead, she focused the attention on her wrists in a truly unique way.
Here, Ybarra repurposed the lariat necklace by wrapping it around one wrist. Layering the gold chain with other dainty bracelets and finishing off the look with an ear crawler gives this look a modern feel with a bohemian feel to it.
