One of the hottest looks for accessories right now is the black and white combination. It is bold and graphic, modern yet timeless. Black and white bridal accessories are the perfect finishing touch for a bride and her bridesmaids.
Most weddings already have a strong dose of black and white in them, because of the tuxedos worn by the groom and his groomsmen. Adding dashes of black and white to the women in the bridal party is a great way to tie the whole group together. Some brides opt for black dresses on their bridesmaids, or even choose a white wedding gown with black embroidered accents. If you like the idea of black and white, but do not want to make such a big commitment to it, there are more subtle ways to incorporate it into your look.
The most stunning type of black and white accessory is pearl bridal jewelry created with a combination of fabulous black pearls mixed with classic white pearls. It is a spectacular twist on the standard all-white pearl bridal jewelry. Strapless gowns look best with a choker or princess length strand, but for a truly dramatic and chic look, wear a longer strand of black and white pearls with a higher neckline, or a double strand with any type of wedding gown.
For bridesmaids, a great idea would be a pair of earrings that combines black and white pearls. If budget is a concern, you can achieve a fantastic effect using affordable Swarovksi pearls to handcraft your black and white bridesmaid jewelry sets. Because the look is meant to be graphic and bold, choose pearls in a large millimeter size, like 8mm or larger.
