Being a bride is exciting, but it also presents you with an overwhelming variety of options for hair, makeup, dresses, and — of course — jewelry.
A pair of earrings is a significant wedding decision, as they will frame your face in the 1,473 pictures you will likely take on your big day!
But, what if you’re the type of bride who finds earrings annoying, painful, or just too much for her sensitive ears? Or what if you simply don’t have your ears pierced at all?!
Well, don’t fret! There is a myriad of beautiful clip-on earrings that are perfect for you!
You might be a bit nervous about wearing them if you’ve heard that they tend to fall off or just aren’t as reliable as post-earrings. But rest assured — these highly-rated clip-on sets will stay sturdy and comfortable, even when you’re hitting the Cha Cha Slide on the dance floor!
Plus, with prices from $15 to $50, none of these clip-on wedding earrings will cause you to break the bank either. Win-win-win!

Things to Consider When Buying Your Clip-On Wedding Earrings:
An updo typically pairs well with big or dangly earrings, while studs tend to go better when you are wearing your hair down.
Your Head Accessories
If you have a floral crown, a floral earring design will work well.
If you plan on having lots of sparkle in your hair, you can pair it with sparkly earrings, but choose a smaller pair so that the sparkle isn’t overdone.
The style of your dress should match the style of your jewelry, including your bridal earrings.
Is your dress vintage? Classic? Have a princess look? Tropical? Modern? Pair it with jewelry that has the same vibe.
Your Wedding Setting and Theme
Most brides know to pick a dress that fits their wedding’s setting and theme, but you should also consider your jewelry.
You don’t want super heavy or sparkly jewelry for a beach wedding, for example, or earrings that are very simple if you are having a large, chandelier-studded ballroom wedding.
