A woman getting married has a lot on her mind. There are so many things that have to be arranged that it’s easy to wait to start looking for bridal jewelry. With so many choices and her other responsibilities, it can be stressful to figure out what to do when selecting jewelry pieces. Focusing on the following factors can help make the process easier.
Matching the Wedding Rings and Dress
It may seem like a minor detail, but ensuring that the jewelry purchased for the event matches the wedding rings can ensure that the bride looks “put together”. Pairing vintage pearls with an extravagant tiara and a black gold wedding set can seem like a good idea when picking out each piece, but when put on at once can create a look that doesn’t look bad, but doesn’t look harmonious.
Try to go with a few words to describe what look the bride wants to go for. Some words could be “modern”, “classic”, “edgy” or “country”. Every piece bought should illicit the same descriptive words; if not, keep looking.
With money being spent on so many different things in order to have a successful wedding, it can be hard to even think about spending even more on bridal jewelry. There are ways to keep costs low while still enabling the bride to find pieces she is happy with.
To save money, the first task should be to consider whether there are relatives that have full sets that may work together. Relatives are usually more than happy to lend to a bride.
However, if the bride insists on her own jewelry, checking out thrift shops may be a strange but effective idea. Pearls and other classic pieces can be gotten for an enormous bargain. Online auctions can also be helpful for saving some money on jewelry, but it’s critical to read about the return policy of any seller to guarantee that returns can be made if the pieces don’t look as they did online or there is some other kind of dissatisfaction.
Asking for Help
Sometimes it can be preferable to delegate the responsibility of getting the right jewelry to a friend or relative. This particular task should go to someone who has similar tastes to the bride so that they can select pieces that the bride will find beautiful. On the day when they go shopping for jewelry, they can send pictures of possible pieces to the bride by smartphone to see if she approves of it or not.
Keep It Simple
Sometimes, as the saying goes, less is more. Decide what jewelry is essential and what can be done without. If the bride decides that the only jewelry she really needs is a beautiful necklace, she may be able to spend a bit more than if she were buying a necklace, earrings, bracelets and other pieces.
A wedding day is one of the most important in the life of the bride. Being able to find and wear beautiful jewelry on the day can help her to feel even more special. Focusing on the factors here can make that happen more easily.
