Finessing Your Unique Bridal Look With Melody Rodgers


We couldn’t be more excited for our first feature in The Bridal Blog of the exquisite Donna Morgan collection. In the blog post “Finessing Your Look With Melody Rodgers,” Melody gives professional tips on choosing the right jewelry for your colors, re-purposing vintage heirlooms for your big day, and more! Melody’s first tip: “Don’t be afraid of color!”


Without a doubt you’ve spent hours (days, weeks, months) planning the perfect look for you and your bridesmaids for your big day. Have you found the perfect color for your girls? Maybe it’s a mix of colors, or a solid hue in a mix of silhouettes. Add in some comfortable dancing shoes and your veil or headpiece, and you’re almost done! Now what about the baubles?

For tips on adding the finishing touches for you and your maids, we turned to jewelry expert Melody Rodgers. With her own store in the Manhattan Art & Antique Center, Melody’s pieces have been seen in countless publications and on numerous celebrities. She also had more than a few ideas for adding the perfect finishing glitz to your wedding day look!

Don’t be afraid of color: When we stopped by Melody’s store to play with the jewels and talk bridal jewelry, one of her first questions was, “Why are brides afraid of color?” By now everyone is familiar with Gwen Stefani’s statement necklace and hot hued gown! For a more subdued, but equally eye catching look, why not add a touch of color to coordinate with your bridesmaids? Of course every bride needs her something blue, but we also love the passion of deep purple or Amethyst. Blush is one of the hottest bridal trends of the moment, and looks good on just about everyone. Melody recommends gold metal as it warming to the skin, and will enhance your pigment for photosREAD MORE.
