The Top 10 Wedding Jewelry color trends for Fall 2009 Bridal Gowns are continuing to bring in the beautiful color accents in rich tones for bridal jewelry accessories.

White and ivory are still the popular bridal gown colors, but those are not the only color choice available to brides who may want to wear some color in their bridal gown and in their wedding jewelry.  Bridal gowns are currently being seen Blush, Champagne, Silver, Grey and Light Gold tones.  Many wedding dresses are featuring Diamond White with Black, Charcoal, Deep Chocolate Browns, and Deep Red accents with sashes and lace overlays. 


Vera Wang  is offering beautiful silver, grey and champagne wedding gowns that offer a soft color palette for your Bridal gown. The multi strand necklace above shows the use of soft Mauve Pearls with Crystal Cal Austrian Swarovski Crystals. This wedding jewelry necklace was perfect for one of my brides who purchased a Vera Wang silver bridal gown. She wanted to bring in her wedding colors which included the mauve tones into her jewelry. A picture  perfect addition of color to create her own unique look.


Alfred Angelo continues to offer a multitude of accent colors to their gowns allowing brides to individualize their colors choices.  Their popular Diamond white bridal gowns with deep red accent trims has continued to be a popular choice this year.  They have also added black lace overlays and trims, champagne, brown, blue and green sashes and trims to many of their gowns. With these types of color combinations, it can be pretty to choose the accent color for your wedding jewelry as seen in the Swarovski crystal bridal necklace above.

You can also choose to use the base color of the wedding gown as your main bridal jewelry color and add in small accents of the contrast color of your dress as seen in the pictures of the stunning Pearl multi strand necklace below.  The accent pearls shown in this wedding necklace are in gold which was a perfect accent for the champagne trim. This combination is also very pretty with Light Gold bridal gowns.


Maggie Sottero continues to offer  lovely and delicate looking Bridal gowns in a soft color tones.  Colors have included light gold, silver mist, vintage rose and pewter. Ok I admit it. This company is after my heart as I love those soft tones which make me feel very romantic!  Below  is a vintage inspired Swarovski Crystal Choker, bracelet and earring wedding jewelry set that is perfect for the Maggie Sottero Vintage Rose gowns!


Just to tantalize you a little more, below is a Black and Bronze pearl bridal choker necklace created custom to go with a Champagne dress that had black lace overlay. Now that was amazingly stunning in photographs!


So here is my rule of thumb once you have chosen your bridal gown of color.

  • Think about your color and if you want to bring more color into your wedding jewelry or if you want it to be an accent color.
  •   Be ready to be bold.  It can look quite stunning to have a lovely Diamond white bridal gown that has black lace trim and add in say black pearl bridal jewelry to really set off your dress and accent your trim.  If you are going to add in the color for the bolder colors, you need to not be shy about it.
  • If your colors are more softer in tone, then my advice is to stay soft with your jewelry colors.  Bring your dress color into your wedding jewelry to create a fluid line for your wedding day look.
  • Last but not least, choose colors and wedding jewelry styles that you feel comfortable in. 

I always say, you should look into the mirror and immediately visualize your self wearing your bridal gown and your wedding jewelry and get the goose bumps that say “this is perfect”!
