Bridal Jewelry: What To Avoid

Dec 9, 2007
Shopping for bridal attire is probably one of the most exciting aspects of planning a wedding for the bride. However, for some brides, it can be very stressful as well. Making the right wedding jewelry selection can add perfection to the wedding. Those that are experienced in the bridal industry recognize that the central focus of the wedding ceremony is the bride's attire. While shopping for a wedding dress, shoes, and a veil are very important elements of a bride's wedding attire, we will focus solely on bridal jewelry for the purpose of this article.

When shopping for wedding accessories such as jewelry, it is important for brides to avoid certain pitfalls. These pitfalls include: blowing the budget, procrastinating, and shopping without the dress. Do not forget about how the bridesmaids attire also supplement the look that the bride wants to accomplish. Let's survey the dangers of these pitfalls.

Blowing the Budget

It is important for every couple to set a budget and stick to it. Because there is a vast range of bridal jewelry on the market--high-end to costume--brides should set a budget before they begin shopping. Brides who go shopping blindly, without having an idea of what they can afford and what they are willing to spend, may run the risk of falling in love with jewelry that they otherwise cannot afford. Keep in mind, that where you shop depends on your budget. A bride cannot expect to purchase diamonds on a Swarovski crystal bridal jewelry budget.

Procrastinating

Most brides might feel that as long as they have found the perfect wedding gown everything else will fall into place. On the contrary, waiting too long to shop for bridal jewelry and other accessories may put a bride in a position of settling on something that she doesn't really like. Not to mention, if she waits too long, she might not have time to shop for the best deals. Take the time to coordinate her own ensemble and also the attire of her bridesmaids. Many brides prefer online shopping. If a bride finds a bridal jewelry set that she likes at an online store, she must allow time for shipping. If she has decided to personalize her bridesmaid gifts with engraving she should allow an extra two weeks to be safe.

Shopping without the Dress

Bridal jewelry and all other wedding accessories should not be purchased if the bride hasn't found a wedding dress. The selection of the best bridal jewelry is dependent on style, color and cost of the wedding dress. The key is to find the dress first and then search for the accessories shortly thereafter. If the bride already has her wedding gown, then it is best for her to take the dress to the store. This will increase her chances of finding the perfect accessories for her bridal gown.

Remember, when shopping for bridal jewelry, it is best to set a budget, stick to the budget, start shopping early, and take the dress to the store when shopping for your accessories.
