Always have a BUDGET. Jewellery unfortunately can be very expensive and unless you are Paris Hilton you don’t have an unlimited bank account, so you will need to plan a budget before you start shopping. Once you know exactly how much you can spend you can look for earrings and a head piece that fits in well with your budget. You have probably set aside a limit for your bridal gown, does this include the jewellery? You need to decide how much you want to spend on the gown, so you know how much you have left to spend on your jewellery.
Consider what STYLE of jewellery you’d like to wear. While you don’t have to choose a style straight away it’s a good idea to know what it is you would LIKE to wear (or what you wouldn’t like to wear). Do you want to wear a necklace, or does your gown have a high or detailed neckline – would a sparkling necklace be *lost* on the gown? Or would it make your neckline look too busy? Do you want to wear small earrings and a head piece, or would drop or chandelier style earrings and a larger headpiece compliment your hair style. Try and remember that while you are getting married and this is your one special day it doesn’t mean you have to wear as much jewellery as you can, too much can make you look fake and over-done, so try and stick to what you need and want, this will help stop you from looking at pieces you don’t plan to wear.
