Bridal Accessory: Pearl Drop Earrings


Mother of the Bride, your daughter’s wedding gown is the centerpiece of her attire on wedding day, but her accessories are super important as well. Her veil, headpiece, shoes, and jewelry will all work together to add the finishing touches to the overall gorgeous picture she hopes to present to her groom on their big day.

One excellent choice for bridal earrings is a pearl drop earring. As you can see from the photo above, they are simple yet extremely elegant and look especially striking when the bride is wearing her hair up. As they dangle from the bride’s ears, they also complement the bridal gown by providing a splash of matching color near the bride’s jawline.

Why not check with your daughter, MOB, and see if pearl drop earrings appeal to her. They might provide the perfect look she’s hoping to achieve!

Scattered Pearls Wedding Cake

9243582418_cdeac3095d_z Mother of the Bride, are you and your bride-to-be daughter gathering ideas for a wedding cake yet? It’s so much fun looking at all the possibilities out there—and if you think that’s fun, just wait until it’s time to taste a few. My husband even wanted to get in on that aspect of wedding planning!

The scattered pearls cake pictured above is a great one to share with your daughter. The cake top with fresh flowers and adorned with edible pearls looks both elegant and lovely as well as interesting yet delicate. And, of course, since pearls fit in well with almost any wedding décor, this cake idea is very versatile.

The cake above features ivory and gold pearls and would look amazing with almost any color scheme, but other color combinations could work as well. If silver would fit in better with the bride’s chosen colors and décor, silver pearls and a silver cake stand could easily be substituted for the gold. Since other colors of edible pearls are also available, your daughter might even choose one of her actual colors to be one shade of pearls adorning the cake.

So MOB, why not see what your little-girl-turned-bride thinks of the scattered pearl cake. The search for the perfect cake might just be over. If so, let the tasting begin!
