Your wedding jewelry is a big part of your overall look. But choosing jewelry for the big day can be daunting, especially if you don't normally do a lot of jewelry shopping. The good news is that your best choices will come when you stay true to these four important things.
Stay True to Your Budget
It's easy to overspend on just about everything related to a wedding. And when you're looking at all those beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, headbands, and piercings, falling in love comes easily. But modern brides and grooms can find a plethora of gorgeous items without breaking their budgets. You'll enjoy your choices more when you know that they aren't going to haunt you with debt.
Stay True to Your Dress
Brides and attendants do well to consider their wedding outfits when deciding on jewelry. The hue of the fabric, the necklines, and the level of embellishment will all inform what type of jewelry will fit best. For instance, bright white dresses tend to work with platinum or silver jewelry while cream goes with gold accents. And a sweetheart neckline is often accompanied by a pendant necklace while an asymmetrical bodice won't need a necklace at all.
Stay True to Your Style
Wedding jewelry isn't something a lot of people normally wear. But this doesn't mean you should choose pieces that don't match your personality or style. This day is about you, after all, not your dress or your earrings. These should embellish who you are and your romantic love story. Don't choose jewelry items just because others — including jewelry store staff, your parent, or even your planner — like them. Be true to yourself instead.
Stay True to the Future
What do you plan to do with your jewelry after the big day? Many people like to re-wear their wedding accessories for years after the event. You may even want to pass it down to future generations. If so, look for good quality items that will hold up well. And avoid things that are overly trendy and don't have a timeless appeal.
