40 Bold & Colourful Statement Earrings for Brides

While the iconic white wedding dress will never go out of style, brides often ask us about ways to make their wedding-day outfit look, well… less bridal! If you’re hoping to create a relaxed, fashion-forward look on your big day, bridal statement earrings are a great way to achieve this, and equally, if you’re a lifelong earring fiend, it’ll be hard to imagine walking up the aisle without a special pair of danglers in tow!

That’s why, today, we’ve rounded up 40 gorgeous pairs of statement earrings to get you started on your search. From eye-popping designer buys to budget-friendly, high street finds, there’s definitely a pair on this list that’ll make your heart skip a beat! Not only that but you can wear them again and again, as they are decidedly ‘unweddingy’.

Tips for Wearing Earrings on your Wedding Day

  • Your earrings should be chosen with your wedding hairstyle in mind (or vice versa!) In general, bridal statement earrings are better suited to updos, but, if you’re wearing your hair down, there are lots of ways to make it work. Talk to your hairstylist about trying a partial updo, asymmetrical braid, or a sleek blow dry with hair tucked behind one ear.
  • When you’ve got a fabulous pair of earrings on, you don’t need to wear a lot of other jewellery to look polished. If you’re going for a particularly modern look, remember Coco Chanel’s sage advice about taking one thing off before you leave the house. If you’re a contented maximalist, on the other hand, feel free to go to town on the baubles!
  • We’ve seen lots of brides effortlessly mix silver and gold on the big day, but if you’re less-than-confident about styling your bridal look, it’s safer to choose one metal – silver, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, etc. – and stick to it.
  • Heavy earrings can be uncomfortable for even short periods of time, so make sure to give your new purchases a trial run, on a night out for example, to make sure you’re fully comfortable with them. It’s also a good idea to keep your handbag close on the big day, in case you need to give your earlobes a break during dinner.
