Have you received a wedding invitation? Does it include a dress code? The main rule for guests is of course no white! That colour is reserved for the bride. However, couples sometimes choose a very specific dress code. Cocktail, smart casual, summer chic... you will undoubtedly come across these dress codes. What is expected of the guests? And what gold jewellery do you wear yourself as a bride to go with your wedding outfit?

Cocktail is probably the most popular dress code for a wedding and we have to thank the 'modern working woman' from the late nineteen twenties for that.
Men wear a suit or a smoking jacket. However, if a cocktail party happens to be informal, then just forget about the tie or handkerchief. As a woman, you complete your cocktail look with the perfect pumps, a matching clutch bag and dazzling gold jewellery. But make sure that you do not wear too much statement jewellery.
What gold jewellery matches the cocktail dress code?
As a man, you will immediately look sleek in a suit, with potential trendy accessories such as cufflinks or, for those who like that sort of thing, braces. Or adorned with a necktie or bow by famous fashion designers? Beautiful!
What may you wear for a black-tie dress code?
The chic black-tie dress code shows that you may expect that bit more from the party and is not just reserved for weddings, but also for business events.
Men must not show any doubts. For them, this dress code means a smoking jacket or a simple tailor-made suit in black or dark blue. Normally, the shirt is pure white and worn with a waistcoat. This is a sleeveless jacket which is cropped at the front. Don 't forget your black patent shoes and black stockings.
What accessories do you wear to a black-tie party?
Men normally wear a tie for a black-tie event. For a less formal occasion, you can opt for a tie in a different colour.
What is the difference between white tie and black-tie?
White tie is the most formal dress code and is worn especially for official occasions such as a formal gala, an opening ceremony or a meeting with royals.
Men wear a dress suit, a suit which is only worn in the evening. It consists of a black jacket with silk lapels, with long tails. Along with the dress costume, patent shoes without laces and black socks are always worn.
What accessories fit with white tie?
According to the etiquette, a watch is not needed! Definitely not for ladies. The main accessory for men is a white tie, never a black tie. During white tie events, black ties are worn by the staff.
What is meant by summer chic?
Do you really not feel comfortable in a dress? Then opt for a stylish jumpsuit. Trousers with a top are also possible. Of course, provided that you still look classy. Trousers with a top in satin or another shiny material are an excellent choice.
Summer chic is the dress code which gives the most freedom of choice. A dress is allowed but not obligatory.
Men also have the most freedom of choice with summer chic. They can opt for a completely finishedsuit but just as much for chic jeans with a T-shirt and blazer. The whole look can be completed with dress shoes or dressy sneakers.
What accessories fit with summer chic?
So definitely choose a pair of gold earrings or a gold necklace with a pendant which reflects the summer. Nature elements such as flowers and butterflies go particularly well with this look.
What are the style rules for tenue de ville?
The literal translation of tenue de ville is city wear. Men are then expected to wear a striped or plain suit with a matching tie.
Blue and grey are ideal colours for men, but summer pastel colours are also customary. The accessories for men are kept subtle. A classy men's ring or diamond tie pin are sufficient.
What do you wear for a smart casual look?
Smart casual is more difficult to describe because this comfortable smart style can be interpreted in different ways and the middle road is between formal and informal.
For men the best tip we can give is: wear what you would wear to work or for a first date. Smart casual stands for comfortable and smart combined. A nice shirt is a good basis. It is fine to choose a somewhat sturdier shirt. And with that shirt, you can choose dress trousers or a lovely chino.
What accessories fit with a smart casual look?
For men a tie is only optional. Finish the look with trendy but smart shoes.
What dress code fits with what time of the day?
The dress code can also depend on the time of day or the place where the ceremony takes place.
For a ceremony or reception in the late afternoon or early evening you should be prepared to wear something to keep you warm. As a woman, possibly wear a short jacket in faux fur or leather should it get chilly. Or why not a graceful shawl?
For the bride a pair of diamond earrings are a must. This gold jewellery is timeless and also a smart investment for the future.
What other gold jewellery matches your wedding outfit? If you wear a dress with a closed neck, a necklace will be superfluous. A dress with long lace sleeves accentuates your arms so a bracelet is not really necessary.
Which earrings match your wedding dress?
OStud earrings with a stunning colourless diamond are a perfect match for your red wedding dress.
For a square neckline, you can wear long earrings with diamonds, just as for a strapless neckline - if you do not wear the necklace. Stud earrings, with or without coloured stones, are the best match for dresses with a boat neck.
Which earrings compliment your hairdo and face shape?
Your face shape is more important for the choice of the earrings than your hairstyle.
Long pendants will make your face seem longer and round earrings soften a square face. A rectangular face suits short earrings best. A round face suits long, narrow earrings best
What else influences my choice of bridal jewellery?
Satin and silk radiate a certain luxury which matches really well with a diamond bracelet or tiara. Something old, new, borrowed and blue? Do not have any doubts if you wish to combine a few family pieces with your new bridal jewellery. However, make sure that your vintage jewellery is the same style as the rest of your accessories.
An autumn wedding requires a customized location, wedding dress and matching bridal jewellery. Gold jewellery in red gold is then an excellent choice.
An autumn bride can choose a dress with long sleeves, combined with a deep neckline or bare shoulders. Choose a wedding dress in a powder colour, such as pale pink or a beige blush colour. Combine your dress with a stylish jacket in faux fur or a stole and a pair of trendy boots. Can it be a bit more? Then choose over-the-knee boots.
What gold jewellery adorns the seasonal bride?
Are you getting married in the winter? Then preferably keep your gold jewellery modest. Also take account of the fact that you will probably wear a stole or shawl. So it is better to choose small earrings with a diamond, sapphire or even a ruby.
It is a different story if you have to choose jewellery for a summer wedding, perhaps with an outdoor ceremony. In that case, you may stand out with eye catchers, such as a design necklace, inspired in natural lines and shapes.
How do you choose a wedding ring that matches your engagement ring?
Your partner can choose the same wedding ring, such as a traditional simple gold ring, but nowadays many couples choose non-identical rings. For instance, there are many unique wedding rings with diamonds for men.
