Look out for jewellery 6 months before the wedding
Well, don’t be surprised you read it right. It is very important to start shopping for your wedding jewellery at least 6 months before the actual wedding date. Aim to have your entire wedding look ready 3 weeks before the big day. Keep enough time for the changes, is there are any. If you are a choosy and picky person, there are chances that you might take longer to get the jewellery of your choice. The best solution for this problem is to visit a store from where you have bought jewellery before. There may more chances of finding something you like.
Get done with your clothes first

Begin your big day shopping by first buying the clothes and then heading towards the jewellery. According to the whole wedding planning and events taking place, choose the clothes and then get jewellery for it. If you buy your jewellery first there are chances that it would not go with your outfit as you thought. For example, if you buy a boat neck choli, then a choker necklace would not go with it.
Have a jewellery budget
In the whole wedding budget, keep an amount aside for your wedding jewellery. Try to keep a small buffer amount, so that you can make changes whenever you fall for a high-end jewellery piece (as all women do). Also, you should consider what heirlooms you are going to buy for your mother and mother-in-law so that you do not end up buying the same.
Take your fabric or picture of your outfit along
Whenever, you step out of the house for buying your wedding jewellery, make sure you have a fabric or picture of the outfit with you. Use this to compare and match the metals and color of the jewellery you are planning to buy. The gold embroidery of your saree or lehenga should match the metal just like it belongs together. The picture and fabric will help you make a wise decision.
Get reusable jewellery
When you are picking your bridal trousseau, make sure you to pick out stuff that you can use even later sometimes. So, if you are planning to buy a heavier neckpiece just for the big day, it might not be worth it. Instead what you can do is go for interchangeable jewellery, which is flexible and can be worn on other occasions as well. There are many brands out there that have detachable jewellery, you can try that even. Also, these would save some of your money.
Keep your personality in mind

While choosing the jewellery, it is very important to keep a check on your personal appearance. Something that looks terrific on a model not necessarily will look great on you. You need to know what will best suit your personality. For instance, if you have a wider jaw, you should choose long earrings instead of the studs.
Choose earring according to the hairstyle
