The bridal jewelry is an essential part of a bridal outfit.  It makes a woman shine on her wedding day and complement the special glow of a woman on her D-day. So, it’s important that a would-be bride chooses the right kind of bridal jewelry. It should be comfortable to wear and should boost her confidence as well.

So here is our guide on how to choose the wedding jewelry that suits you the most:

You should first wait to receive your bridal dress. To ensure a perfect match, you should carefully choose your jewelry depending on the embroidery, colour and type of your bridal wear.

The bridal top has an important role in making your jewelry look stunning. If you have decided to wear very heavy jewelry then go for a bridal top with a wider or deeper neckline so that the ornaments sits perfectly on your body. Decide how much elaborate work and embroidery you want in the portion where your necklace sits.

Bridal ornaments include several items from head-to-toe. The most essential bridal jewelry that beautifies the head of a woman is the maang-teeka, it’s an elegant pendent hung with a small chain. However the maang teeka designs vary from region to region but you should make sure that it should not be too heavy or bulky. Gold clips of various shapes and designs are also very popular as bridal hair accessories.

Next item that you need to buy is the nose ring; this is an essential ornament for the brides specifically from northern region of the country. So you should go for a nose ring that goes well with your tradition.
