Your significant other isn't the only arm candy you can have on your big day; a wedding bracelet can also go a long way, too! Whether you prefer a bridal cuff bracelet or a pearl wedding bracelet, this bauble does wonders when it comes to elevating your wedding fit.

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, a bridal bracelet can hold a lot of sentimental and cultural value. You can choose a bracelet that has significance to you and can easily be passed down to the next generation. Plus, they are easy to re-wear over and over again. So whenever you look down at your wrist, you'll be reminded of your love and commitment to your partner. In addition, many cultures around the world have been wearing bridal bracelets for centuries. Indian wedding jewelry often consists of a set of bangles made of gold, glass or other metals as a symbol of a good omen and prosperity. In Chinese culture, silk-bound jade bangles are commonly given to a bride to symbolize good fortune, luck and long-lasting love.

To prove that the wedding bracelet deserves a coveted arm spot on your special day, I've curated a stunning selection for every vibe, from the timeless bridal tennis bracelet to men's chain bracelets. You'll look effortlessly stylish in any of these picks:

Should I wear a bracelet on my wedding day?

Wearing a wedding bracelet (and wedding jewelry in general) brings your entire outfit together. However, the type of bridal bracelet you wear comes down to personal style and taste, but you can never go wrong with the iconic tennis bracelet style. "Tennis bracelets make excellent bridal jewelry," says Brantner. "Think about all the photos you and your partner will want to have to look back on and how often your hands will be visible for bouquet shots, engagement ring detail shots, special dances or other romantic poses." A tennis bracelet, with its dazzling diamonds encircling your wrist, will sparkle from every angle, Brantner explains, making its presence felt from the aisle to the dance floor.

Styling Tip: It's often recommended that you wear a wedding bracelet on your right wrist, not to take away from the stars of the show: your wedding band and engagement ring, but it's really up to what will make you feel the most comfortable.

The Four-Prong Basket Tennis Bracelet

According to Lorraine Brantner, "the most popular tennis bracelet design is the standard four-prong basket. This showcases each and every diamond beautifully while allowing ample light to enter the stones for maximum sparkle." The delicate arrangement of diamonds in a continuous line adds an elegant touch, effortlessly complementing any wedding gown. Whether you opt for a classic round-cut or a dazzling princess-cut, the four-prong basket tennis bracelet remains a staple choice for its timeless appeal.

Fancy-Shaped Diamond Bracelets

In recent years, there has been a shift towards embracing unique and unconventional diamond shapes in wedding bracelets. Lorraine Brantner notes, "We are seeing more tennis bracelets featuring fancy-shaped diamonds, repeating patterns made of smaller diamonds, or even different diamond shapes together in the same bracelet." This trend allows couples to infuse their own personalities into their wedding jewelry, creating a distinctive and personalized look.

Bezel Bracelets

For those seeking a combination of durability and style, bezel-set tennis bracelets have gained significant popularity. Brantner explains, "Bezel-set tennis bracelets are also becoming increasingly popular and make for a really durable piece of jewelry. This setting showcases the outline shape of each diamond and gives the bracelet a little more presence on the wrist due to the added metal." The bezel setting adds a contemporary edge while ensuring that each diamond is securely held in place, making it an excellent choice for the modern to-be-wed or those with active lifstyles.
