There’s nothing that comes as close to the celebration that is an Indian wedding. There’s amazing food, there’s so many events and parties, there’s vibrant colours. It’s just everything. Picture an explosion of colours, that’s the feeling that a good wedding can invoke. Now, now, that’s not all a wedding does. We haven’t forgotten the best part about attending weddings; getting to dress up. We know wedding season comes and goes and getting to style ethnic outfit is hands down one of the best parts of attending a wedding. There’s so many things to consider, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and any other accessories you want to wear.
The scale and at which weddings happen now has also changed significantly. Most people now prefer to have a small scale, destination wedding with only their near and dear ones, close friends and family. Picture scenic locations from a beach to the lakeside, it’s all the more aesthetic and literally picture perfect from all angles. Styling for destination weddings can be super fun since you can break the traditional outfit styles and blend in the destination vibe in your outfit and jewellery. For earrings, your only options aren’t jhumkas or heavy set earrings. This is where we come in, here’s our guide to styling earrings for destination weddings.
Earring for the Beach
Let’s start with one of the most popular destinations, the beach. Things to keep in mind while styling for beach weddings is that it's going to be extremely hot and windy, especially if you’re close to the water. You want style earrings that feel light and are easily manageable. We suggest going for boho chic earrings with tassels and an airy feel to them.
Earrings for the Garden
With a garden wedding that’s happening in the day, we recommend you keep the earring tones lighter and airy. You can opt for statement pieces or traditional gold plated ones and american diamond ones. You can also pair earrings with, you can find enamel earrings that match the colour palette of your outfit.
For night events, you can opt for classic, statement earrings made of pearls, american diamonds and other stones as it adds glamour and a bling to your outfit. You can go as minimal and clean as you want to as grand as you want.
For weddings that are taking place at mansions, we recommend keeping it sophisticated and upscale. Tap into your polki earrings and your american diamond earrings for a neutral look. You can also pair jhumkas, multi-tiered as you want for a more vibrant and ethnic look. Because the location is indoors, you can go for more risky and experimental pieces as you wouldn’t have to worry about heat or wind or anything else.
Earrings for the Ballroom
For wedding events that are happening at ballrooms, we recommend tapping into that sophisticated and old English charm. American diamond danglers or American diamond chandelier earrings, would be the perfect fit for such a setting. It’s the right amount of charm and elegance, and a good pair of earrings, make all the difference.
Earrings for the Palace
We’ve all seen the pictures of the grand, larger than life, royal Indian wedding. For palace location weddings, we recommend tapping into Indian styles like jhumkas and chandbalis that are adorned with polki, pearls, kundans and other precious and semi precious gemstones. The best about destination weddings is the immense inspiration the destination provides. For a palace wedding, we would recommend nothing less than going all out with your earrings.
For poolside weddings, we recommend keeping it simple and vibrant. Go for shapes like teardrop earrings that look classy and elegant and you can also go for colours. You don’t have to stick to any rules, because after all, you’re here to have fun. We recommend styling earrings bearing in mind that you’ll be outdoors.
Wherever the wedding may be, beach to the palace, it is always a fun experience to experiment and let the location inspire you to dress up and choose your accessories. Earrings by themselves are enough to elevate and transform any look for all kinds of occasions, but when they are also paired with other accessories like necklaces and bracelets, it’s an unbeatable combination. Whatever earrings you choose, we’re sure you’ll look great and more importantly, feel great and remember to enjoy the wedding.
