Popular Types of Wedding Earrings

While there are several earrings to pick from, certain kinds are better suited for weddings than others. Keep scrolling for the most common styles of earrings to consider when it’s time to say “I do.”

Stud Earrings – Stud earrings often include a gemstone (such as a diamond) and fit snugly on your earlobe. They don’t hang down, so they’re suitable for any situation. Studs are ideal for creating a minimalist, simple, and versatile look. Here are some beautiful lab diamond earrings to try.

Drop earrings – Drop earrings will dangle slightly past your earlobe, but they are designed to stay immobile while worn. They are frequently embellished with a gemstone, pearl, or charm, have an exquisite appearance, and come in a variety of forms.

Dangle earrings – Dangle earrings dangle down past the earlobe, however they are often longer than drop earrings. Furthermore, because they’re more dazzling, these types are usually thin and streamlined, with some movement. They can also include gemstones.

Chandelier earrings – Chandelier earrings, like dangle earrings, hang around an inch or two from your earlobe. However, unlike dangle earrings, chandelier earrings are larger and more complex. They undoubtedly boost your appearance and provide a more formal touch.

Hoop Earrings – Hoop earrings are classic and traditional, with an infinite loop form and a range of shapes available in small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes. They can be circular or angular, and some may contain little gemstones or pearls.

Huggies – Huggies, or little hoops that hug your earlobes, are one of the most trendy earrings right now. You get the appearance of a hoop with the wearability of a stud. Huggies can have tiny gemstones and come in different shapes.

Cluster Earrings – Cluster earrings are similar to stud earrings, except they include more gems. Cluster earrings have many stones that sit flush on the earlobe, whereas studs only have one. This can be mixed gemstones or the same, and it’s a nice blend of tradition and trends.

Ear climbers – These studs, also known as crawlers, curl around the curvature of your ear. They’re unusual and less popular than other styles, so you’ll stand out.

Teardrop Earrings – Teardrop earrings are similar to drop earrings, however, the gemstones used in them are shaped like teardrops (thus the name). Their key distinguishing feature is a romantic and classic atmosphere.

Threader Earrings – This form of earring is a long, thin metal tube that threads through your piercing and hangs on each side of your earlobe. They might include gems and are usually slender and delicate.

Factors To Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Earrings

Individual Style: As with everything else during your wedding, the most essential thing is to make sure your accessories reflect you and your aesthetic. If you have a strong sense of style, a maximalist approach might be ideal, however, if you prefer sleek, simple designs, something modern yet pared down would be better.

Your Wedding Gown style: As well as the overall style of your wedding, which may be boho, vintage, or extremely seductive. When choosing the right set of earrings, make sure they complement—not compete with—your wedding day attire. Classic, clean dresses, for example, can be accessorized with striking earrings that do not compete with beading or lace.

Your Dress’s Neckline and Bodice: The bodice and neckline of your dress play an important role in selecting the perfect earrings for your special day. First, the more fabric on your décolletage, the simpler the earrings should be to prevent drawing attention away from your face. High neck, boat neck, and long sleeve dresses would all benefit from a smaller, simpler design, while necklines benefit from a bit more drama in styling.

For strapless gowns, we recommend a statement-making hoop or a stunning crystal or pearl drop earring. Balancing the openness of a strapless neckline is vital, thus we normally do not recommend little stud earrings; nonetheless, chandelier earrings look great with a strapless neckline. If you’re wearing a wedding gown with a voluminous skirt (such as an A-line, mermaid, or ball gown dress), a bold earring on top can help balance off the volume beneath.

The Style of Your Dress: Do you want a classic style, such as a sleek sheath or an a-line ball gown? Or are you wearing something more current, such as a sleek slip-on style? To keep the appearance consistent, select earrings that have the same overall mood.

Your Hair: While a basic bun will highlight a single stud (and striking earrings), huge voluminous waves may obscure little jewelry—something to consider. Large chandelier earrings, on the other hand, can get tangled in loose waves.

The Veil: Something you might not have considered! If you’re accessorizing with a complex veil, we recommend a more minimalist pair of earrings. With simple, clean veils, your earrings may steal the show.

The Weather: While the weather might be unpredictable, you can get some hints from the venue. Windy environments, such as a beach wedding, might cause a drop earring to become entangled in a veil. Or worse: your hair!

Your Overall Comfort Level: This is an essential one. You’ll be uncomfortable if your earrings are too heavy, too tight, or just don’t feel like “you” on your big day. If you have sensitive ears, make sure your earrings are silver or gold plated. Try taking your earrings for a test drive beforehand to get a sense of how they’ll feel after a few hours of wear.
