Pearl jewelry is by far one of the most refined choices that a woman has. Elegant and sophisticated, pearl necklaces and earrings are essential components of a woman’s jewelry collection. They are appropriate regardless of age and can be worn with various outfits. But pearls can be used for a multitude of purposes, not only jewelry.
Pearls can be incorporated into virtually any aspect of your life. For weddings, there are countless of ways to ensure that the understated elegance of pearls doesn’t go unnoticed.
All-pearl bouquets, for instance, have become quite fashionable in recent years and it’s easy to understand why. They may include thousands of tiny white pearls, or, if you prefer bolder colors, you can choose pearls with an ivory or rose shimmer, or even Golden South Sea pearls. There are multiple designs to choose from, and such bouquets can either be pearl-only, or include ribbons and silk when appropriate.
Decorating your wedding arch with pearls is another excellent idea. More and more couples are deciding to turn a wedding into a more personal experience by getting hands-on with the many elements of the ceremony itself. While some choose to create the wedding invitations or write them by hand, others go for other, more difficult tasks. Such as making the wedding arch were the ceremony is officiated. Of course, the groom should at least have some handyman skills in order to create the arch structure. Wood is generally preferred, although you can be very creative and use twigs and vines for a more bohemian look. Then hang strands of pearls of different lengths all across the structure.
Pearls can be used for a wide assortment of decorations. You can hem the elegant tablecloth used at the bride and groom’s table with pearls or decorate the chair covers with tiny pearl pins.
Wedding planners are constantly looking for new centerpiece ideas and decorations, and a combination of pearls and other gemstones may be the perfect solution. There are various dreamy combinations where gold-sprayed twig centerpieces, adorned with tiny pearl strands work perfectly with the dim candlelight and the white rose decorations that are commonplace at a wedding.
Wedding decorations aren’t only centerpieces. There are hundreds of little details and you can include pearls in each of them. You can wrap pearl strands around your candle holders and use unconventional materials that best represent you and the groom. Another clever idea is to have glass bowls filled with pearls and roses.
Many brides choose to even decorate their wedding cakes with pearl strands, though cutting the cake and eating it may be a bit problematic.
But why talk about the end of the wedding without actually looking at the beginning? Some brides are ecstatic with the idea of sending out pearl-decorated wedding invitations. Though conventional invitations are white or ivory, you can opt for edgier alternatives, such as black-and-white or different shades of green. Either way, the pearls you choose don’t necessarily have to be round ones and with the multitude of affordable cultured pearls, you’re not going to spend a fortune on the invitations.
