Start early

You don’t want to be a frantic bride looking to mix and match 2 days prior to your wedding. Start shopping for your bridal things at least 3-4 months before your wedding date. You should have all your outfit and jewellery ready a month before your wedding. This way you will worry less and you will have more time to organize other things around you.

If you will buy the jewellery first then it will be a little difficult to base your lehenga around the jewellery pieces. So make sure that you buy your wedding outfit first and then go hunting for jewellery pieces. You will be able to choose better according to the colour, texture and neckline of your dress.

Ask for opinions from your mother and your mother-in-law

Sometimes in traditional Indian households, these ladies have a lot of say in what jewellery the bride will wear on her wedding day. You can ask for their opinion if they have any specific look in their mind and you can buy something which will suit your needs as well as theirs. You can choose to go for modern versions of the classic styles that they have in mind. This way you will be happy and the elders will be happy too.

Choose timeless pieces

Go for those pieces that you will be able to wear after your wedding too. If you are spending then spend it wisely. Buying something expensive and then not being able to wear that again will not be worth the money. Try interchangeable wedding pieces so that you will get more wearability out of them.

Keep an open mind while shopping

If you have a certain piece in your mind and you are not finding it anywhere then don’t lose your night’s sleep over that. Be flexible in your thinking and try as many pieces as you can, you will probably find something even better. If you still think you want what you have in mind and then simply ask your jeweller to make something similar for you.

Don’t forget the neckline

The necklace must always be chosen keeping in mind the neckline of your choli. If it is a deep neck then you can go for heavy choker sets hugging the neckline and if your choli has high neckline then you can go for chained elongated necklaces too.

Keep your hairstyle in mind

You should have a clear picture of what kind of hairstyle you will be donning on your D-day and then choose your earrings according to it. If you are going to wear your hair down then pick chandelier earrings. For a bun you can choose medium length earrings that define your face.

Understand your face shape

Before you begin with your jewellery shopping, you need to know your face shape and shop accordingly to enhance your facial feature even further. For round shaped face, a long necklace that extends below the neckline, along with chandelier earrings in different shapes and cuts will look great. If you have an oval-shaped face, then you need to worry as this face shape is considered ideal and all kinds of jewellery will look good on you. Choker-style necklaces with short or round earrings work well for rectangular face shape. Heart-shaped face looks good with shorter necklaces and chokers with danglers and teardrop earrings.
