Time always seems to fly past while you’re preparing for your wedding, and there’s just so much to be done! While you certainly are stressed, especially as a modern bride who is juggling work and the preparations, you need all the help you can get. That’s why we’ve come up with some tips to help you select the right jewellery for your wedding, which will become a treasure for the rest of your life.
Mistake #1: Buying your jewellery before your lehenga
You’re going to be wearing the most beautiful lehenga that has been carefully customised and designed for you, so remember to wait for it to arrive before choosing your jewellery. Once you have your lehenga with you, you can pick the jewellery, whether you want Kundan work, polka work or even silver jewellery, depending on the work on your lehenga. If your lehenga is taking time to be made, ask your designer for a swatch of the lehenga fabric to carry to the jewellery store with you, so you can envision your perfect look properly and pick the right ornaments.
Mistake #2: Not researching enough
Whatever your choice of jewellery, you need to do as much research possible before going in to shop. Read up on gold, diamonds, and how to know their purity, the right sizes for you, etc. before you buy them. You do not want to be duped by any jeweller in your excitement, because these jewels will be yours for life. Visit only a reputed jeweller who will guide you with buying what’s best for you.
Mistake #3: Picking jewellery from magazines
Yes, you did love that necklace or set of bangles you saw a model wear in the magazine, but it’s not necessary it will suit your bridal look. Take your time to go through jewellery, seeing what suits you and your lehenga best before picking out the jewellery you will wear on your special day. If you are wearing a veil over your head, then go with smaller earrings and a statement choker neckpiece instead.
Mistake #4: Leaving the layering for the last day
Most brides wear combinations of different sets, to layer their jewellery, so plan this beforehand and be ready. Pick a day when you put out all the different sets together and wear them, to see what goes well and what should be left out. Your wedding day is not the day to panic over this, because you need to look perfect and stay relaxed.
Your wedding day is special, and thus you need to prepare everything beforehand. Keep these few things in mind and you will have the best day of your life, feeling confident and beautiful as all eyes are will be on you on your big day.
