First and the foremost thing that you have to take in account is the theme of the wedding. Are you planning to have a destination wedding? Is there specific color coordination that is going to be followed?

2. Check Your Inherited Jewellery First:
All Indian mothers and grandmothers inevitably save up since your childhood and start purchasing smaller gold items from the time you have been a little girl. Apart from that, there would be certain ornaments that are traditionally passed on to the generations. So, first take a look at that collection to see what all can become a part of your bridal trousseau; you can always mix and match those beautiful timeless pieces with the newer ones that you purchase.
3. Stick to Your Budget:
Now that you know the wedding theme, the number of functions and have explored your existing collection, it would be wise that you set a budget for your jewellery shopping and stick to the budget so that you don’t splurge.

A little bit of research on what’s trending this wedding season will help you in making a smart choice while buying those baubles.

When we are surrounded with heavy, antique, grand jewellery, we have an urge to jump our guns and buy a traditional mangalastura.
