Stephanie Owen of Elizabeth Cole, a jewelry designer who specializes in gorgeous, mixable baubles, encourages brides to try this look saying:
"For the bride who wants to break with tradition just a bit, this trend is a fantastic way to express some of your fashionable sensibilities without upsetting your mother and grandmother."
She goes on to share her best tips for pulling off the mismatched earring look.
When in doubt, keep it classic- "You can still be a classic bride but embrace the asymmetrical trend by simply wearing one diamond stud and one pearl stud — fashion forward and fun but in a very subtle way."
Stick to one metal- She recommends sticking with one metal— gold, silver or rose gold — and having fun with shapes instead.
Clear or neutral sparkle is your best bet
A light palette keeps the attention on the bride and lets you have fun with different earrings.
Make a change for the reception- "If you're nervous about embracing this trend, wear your classic diamonds during the ceremony, and then mix it up with your asymmetrical set at the reception."
Let the look shine with the right hairstyle- "If you want to be more daring, wearing a large chandelier on one ear and a smaller stud on the other would look amazing with a sideswept hairstyle."
Add edge with an ear crawler- "This is the beauty of the asymmetrical earring — it adds a bit of rebellion to any bridal look, from the very classic a-line gown to a slightly cropped top with skirt."
Mix costume and fine jewelry- "Wear a real diamond stud on one ear and your favorite drop earring on the other — rhinestones and diamonds do mix!"
Shop your own jewelry box and embrace indecision- "I have a tendency to be a bit indecisive regarding which earrings I want to wear. This trend allows me to mix and match some of my favorite pieces within one look."
Have your bridesmaids rock the trend- "Add fun pops of colors to your wedding photos by having each girl wear a different mismatched set in your color scheme."
