Don’t Overdo It:

Less doesn’t need to be boring. If you prefer a more classic look for your ceremony but want to add some character for the reception, try picking one or two statement pieces too add to your wedding look. Change out your dainty pearl earrings into something with more personality, like a statement-making chandelier pair of earrings or add some bangle bracelets.
