Planning for your wedding has a lot of steps to it. One of the first things many brides to be do when they finally set the date, is to buy the dress. Yes, the dress is an important part of any wedding planning, but what about the accessories? Just as important is the jewellery you wear on your big day. So who am I to give this vital advice? The founder of TEJANI Jewellery, who has been in the wedding industry for close to 10 years. I have been able to help many brides to be across the world figure out the perfect ensemble to wear on their wedding day.
Here is some advice that I’ve learned throughout the years in my experience that can help your wedding day go off without a hitch.
Something Borrowed Something New
Remember the saying, not everything needs to match though when it comes to wearing something borrowed and something new. Matching is honestly, boring. Learn to express your personality and unique style in a way you want. Blend in something you were able to borrow for your wedding day with a new piece of jewellery.
Stay Away from Watches
I know it’s important to keep on scheduled, but you really should skip the watch on your wedding day. Let your wedding planner and family members handle the schedule at the time. When you think of wedding events like pictures, you really don’t want your close up shots to feature your bright pink watchband. Instead, replace it with a lovely bracelet that completes the outfit.
Don’t Have Too Many Accessories
While you want to look putting together with accessories that compliment your wedding dress and look, you don’t want to overdo it. If you are looking for a bold statement, pick one piece that can accentuate your look and then balance it out with some smaller pieces. Don’t go above in beyond when it comes to your jewellery.
Include Colour in Your Looks
You don’t want to stick with all neutral or white colours. Instead, choose some bolder looks to give your wedding day ensemble a pop. Whatever your wedding colours are, include a matching jewellery piece in your look with the same colours. This can help to balance out and bring together everyone’s wardrobe features.
Change Jewellery for the Reception
You don’t want to wear the larger pieces and borrowed pieces during your reception. Instead, change them out for smaller more comfortable pieces that will allow you to bogy the night away.
Keep Your Personal Style
Just because it’s your wedding day doesn’t mean you have to stay away from your traditional personal style. It’s the biggest day of your life, and you don’t want to spend it being someone that you are not. Go for the things you look and find pieces of jewellery that express that you truly are.
Go Above and Beyond
Don’t try to cut corners when it comes to choosing your wedding jewellery. While you will have a budget, it’s important to get the pieces you truly want within reason of course. Choose your most favourite pieces based on the close-up shots for your pictures. That way you can feature these pieces of jewellery in your pictures so that you always have this memory.
Rushing through the accessories and jewellery decision can work against you on the big day. Take your time to figure out what type of jewellery you want ahead of time. Sleep on it, then go back to make sure after a month or two and decide if these are the right pieces for you. Allowing yourself extra time can save you from recreating the pieces you did purchase on the big day.
It’s your wedding day, and you only do it once. Go out and find the best pieces of jewellery that fit your unique style and personality. Remember that adding a bit of colour into your accessories can help to make your look pop. You want to make sure this is a day you will always remember, and with the right pieces of jewellery you can ensure your pictures are always a beautiful reminder of this day.
