There are many important decisions that go into wedding planning, but selecting a dress is often the most fun one on the list for brides-to-be (cake-tasting is a really, really close second). But while you're on the hunt for The One—be it a classic strapless gown or an of-the-moment "naked" dress—don't forget to consider the jewelry you'll wear with it. Think of it as the finishing touch that will truly make your look when you walk down the aisle.
Instead of spending hours scrolling through Pinterest for wedding dress and jewelry ideas, take some vetted inspiration from über-chic bride-to-be Gina Ybarra, who graciously let us tag along as she went wedding-dress shopping with her maid of honor. While you'll have to wait until the big day to find out which dress the Hunt for Styles blogger ultimately chose, we can tell you that she'll be accessorizing with luxe pieces from Kendra Scott's new bridal collection.
Whether you're planning your own wedding or will be attending one as a guest, our roundup of dress-and-jewelry combos should help you get closer to finding the perfect look.
Ybarra, who describes her style as "boho yet chic," lives in San Diego, but she's planning her wedding at an oceanside villa in Mexico, where she's originally from (yes, we're still working on scoring an invite). The coastal location and her love for vintage style are sure to influence her dress pick… Case in point: Most of the styles she tried on had gorgeous lace and crochet detailing.

Here, Ybarra repurposed the lariat necklace by wrapping it around one wrist. Layering the gold chain with other dainty bracelets and finishing off the look with an ear crawler gives this look a modern feel with a bohemian feel to it.
One thing's for sure: No matter which dress-and-jewelry combination Ybarra ends up wearing, she'll definitely be sparkling down the aisle on her big day.
