Wedding Jewelry Do’s and Don’ts
When it comes to choosing your wedding jewelry, you want to be sure to choose the right pieces for you. Of course your dress and wedding ring will be the main attractions, but your other jewelry can serve as great accents to your ensemble. Check out this list of do’s and don’ts to help find the right jewelry for you!
Wedding Jewelry Do’s
- Explore jewelry options.
Sure, you may have never worn a tiara before or a big, chunky necklace, but who knows, you may love them! When you go shopping for jewelry, try on various styles to see what will look best on you for your special day.
- Compare prices online.
Have a specific piece or style in mind? Check out prices online and compare them to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
- Use a piece of jewelry as your “something old, something new, something borrowed, or something blue.”
If you’re following the traditional saying of having “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue” on your wedding day, why not knock some (or all) of those items out via jewelry?
- Consider your style.
Do you want lavish jewelry that will make your feel like a bedazzled queen, or are you more of a fan of simpler jewelry? Go as blingy or as demure as you feel comfortable. Your day, your jewelry!
Wedding Jewelry Don’ts
- Don’t blow your wedding budget on jewelry.
Weddings are expensive and, depending on your budget, you may not want to drop a ton of cash on your wedding jewelry. If you find something you like that doesn’t fit your budget, browse online for cheaper options.
- Don’t wear jewelry that’s uncomfortable.
You’ll be in your wedding jewelry all day on your wedding day, so you want it to be comfortable. Avoid pieces that are too heavy, have sharp edges, or make you feel itchy.
- Don’t buy jewelry that will fall apart or turn your skin green.
Cheaper jewelry may save you a few bucks, but don’t go too cheap to the point where your jewelry won’t last through the day, or something that will cause an allergic reaction. I’m one of those lucky folk who can’t wear jewelry that isn’t real, unfortunately. If you have similar reactions to wearing jewelry made of non-precious metals, avoid it, especially on your wedding day.
- Don’t choose jewelry that’s too distracting.
By all means, choose whatever you like; however, be weary when choosing your wedding pieces, as you don’t want something that will distract too much from your face or dress.
Whatever jewelry you choose is bound to be perfect, so have fun and choose what works best for you! Hopefully these tidbits will assist you with your wedding jewelry shopping!
