For any bride-to-be, the most exciting decision of her life, after having chosen upon the man she wants to marry, is her Wedding day look. And as much as the wedding outfit is of paramount importance, what is equally crucial to the entire dream of transforming into a stunning bride is having some stunning exquisite jewellery to complement and uplift the whole look further. When it comes to jewellery, one actually needs a matter expert or a styling guide to suggest you the right pieces to invest your money in. Ideally, a bride should go about selecting her outfit first and then zero down upon the hair-do that she wants for her look. Once both these aspects are decided, one should move on to the jewellery part. The hair-do that a bride wishes to opt for is also very crucial in deciding upon the entire jewellery look. The makeup should come last and should only be complementing the whole look and not overpowering it. The girls who let their true personalities shine through their wedding attire and show their taste for finesse through their choice of jewellery, keeping the makeup minimalistic are the one’s who make the most stunning brides.
Coming back to the bridal jewellery trends, the modern bride really wants her jewellery to stand out. Opt for the traditional jewels, gold, diamonds, polki and kundans, but ensure that the design and setting is really modern. We have been doing Wedding styling and Bridal shopping for Indian brides from across the world, but their love for traditional Indian jewellery runs the same. They all want to be laden in all the beautiful heavy jewellery pieces they have ever eyed upon at any point in time in their lives. So herein, we have made an effort to compile down some of the interesting modern jewellery looks for today’s bride, looks that we feel will really make you stand out and not look like a regularly decked up run-of-the-mill bride.
1. The Quintessential Heavy Bridal Choker Look
It can be in semi-precious stones, polki, kundan, diamonds or even gold, but do stress upon the setting of these jewels. It should be unique and a very strong statement. Don’t go for anything that is just heavy and overbearing but doesn’t reflect class in the design and the setting of the jewels. The idea here is not to cover up the entire neck area but to wear a piece of jewellery that just draws the attention and looks beautiful sitting there. Ensure to keep the rest of the jewellery pieces light and creating a beautiful balance together. It should be the bride wearing the jewellery and not the other way round.
2. Choker And Just The Choker, Nothing Else
While it’s difficult to fathom it in your head, but the whole look turn out really refreshing and stylish if executed well. That is just wearing a heavy statement choker and nothing else with you wedding outfit. Make sure you do your research and opt for an exquisite marvelous piece of jewellery that makes up for your entire jewellery look for your wedding day. Let go any choker pieces that you have even a remote idea of having seen anyone wearing before.
3. The Much Trending Maharani Haar for the Royal Bride
These big haars with a very evident royalty vibes to them are making an interesting trend in 2023 for bridal jewellery looks. The layered kundan haars are trending big, but we suggest you to opt for other settings of stones. Pair them with just small earrings or big tops to bring out the dramatic effect of the neckpiece. Also, you can also pair them with a choker but again the differentiating style would be to just wear a huge single Maharani Haar.
4. Gold is Gold, Invest Wisely and Wear Gold Jewellery
Diamond is for a lady, but gold is for her generations to come. For the urban independent woman of today, who is as capable of making striking fashion choices as she is of taking judicious financial decisions, gold jewellery is her best bet. You can wear some minimalistic pieces in gold or even go for some modern unique settings of gold chokers and layered chains. And this jewellery complements Asian skin tone really well and also brings out the grandeur of the Bridal lehengas in most of the colours.
5. Minimalistic Jewellery for the Modern Bride
Brides really want to have fun to the hilt at their weddings these days, not just be decked up way too heavily in their attires and jewellery, to be unable to even move freely. Our recommendation to our clients as Wedding Stylists and Trousseau Shoppers is to have a clear vision of your look first and then work upon it. If the attire is too heavy, go light on the jewellery. The whole look in totality should look stunning. The idea is not to make very aspect of it heavy on the eye and overbearing. Here are some of the modern jewellery looks we would really recommend to the millennial brides in 2023.
