As a woman, you have probably bought jewellery for yourself countless times. Your jewellery box is likely to be bursting with necklaces, bracelets and rings that you’ve bought over the years. But buying jewellery for your wedding is a lot different than buying jewellery for a night out or for a business meeting. It requires more consideration and planning in advance to make sure it complements the look the bride wants. You want to feel incredible on your big day and jewellery that you’ve bought in a rush or not thought about can ruin your look entirely. So if you’re a bride to be, here are three mistakes you should avoid when it comes to jewellery for your wedding day.
Buying the jewellery before the dress
This is a huge no-no that should be avoided at all costs. Choosing a wedding dress can be challenging, especially if you don’t know what you want. So buying your jewellery before your dress can make your shopping even harder. If you’ve bought large statement necklaces and earrings, you many be unable to wear certain style necklines. If you’ve bought some coloured bracelets, it might be hard to find a dress that suits the colour you have chosen. Plus you may only be able to wear a short sleeve design.
The jewellery should enhance the dress, not the other way around. So even if you see a piece of jewellery that you adore, wait until you have your dress. You may realise it doesn’t work well after all.
Wearing too many styles
Jewellery designs that vary in style and colour will make your wedding outfit seem unpolished and messy. So stick to the same colour of metal when shopping for your jewellery, to keep some consistency within your look. Subtle contrasts can look beautiful and avoid you looking too matchy-matchy. So choose complementary colours in your gemstones inspired by your wedding colour scheme. If you are unsure which jewellery style to go for, look for something simple and timeless. These will look fabulous when you look back on your wedding pictures in years to come. Also, remember that less is more. Sometimes a minimal necklace and maybe one of the Verragio rings are all you need.
Buying into current trends
Trends are great for helping you know what is in fashion. But just because they are currently fashionable doesn’t mean they will be in years to come. Your bridal style can look seriously outdated in your photographs if you buy and wear jewellery that is too modern or trendy. This can leave you feeling embarrassed and regretting your choices. You should be choosing items that suit your dress and highlights your personality, rather than wearing it just because it is on trend. You never know, a necklace that could be on trend now might be old fashioned in a weeks time
The finishing touches can make all the difference to a wedding look. Getting organised and planning in advance will help you find jewellery that complements your look and makes you feel like a star.
