Jewellery guide for wedding guests

November 16, 2021 | 3 min Read

Weddings are always exciting with all the dance, lights, music, and of course dressing up! They are not just fun for the bride and groom, but also for the relatives and the guests. Especially if you are a part of an Indian wedding, it is a week-long celebration with different rituals and functions.

Getting ready for each function is fun because it's the only time when you get a chance to experiment with your looks and go all out. But it can also be a task for many! Deciding on outfits, jewellery, and make-up can be too much of a task, especially when you are busy with all the preparations and still want to look your best. So here I am to help you figure out your jewellery for this wedding season:

Pick your jewellery colour:

Jewellery Designs

When planning the outfit, make sure you don't just wear the same colour from head to toe. It's always fun to mix and match, play around with your accessories when styling. Suppose your outfit is emerald green with pink and gold detailing.

In this case, since emerald green is an overpowering colour, you can go for jewellery with the hues of pink and gold. This will maintain the balance in your look and highlight both your jewellery and your dress.

If you want to play it safe, you can also just invest in pieces with only gold and silver accents. Depending on your outfit's tones and colour palette, these jewellery pieces will go with most of them.

Maintain the balance:

Earrings and Necklace

Talking about balance, it is important to maintain the symmetry of your jewellery and outfit in terms of visual weight. Suppose you are styling a heavily worked lehenga with heavy jewellery pieces; it is sure to look too loud. Keeping that balance is essential when styling; go with the rule - Less is always more! You can drop off one-piece either the earrings or the necklace, with elaborately embellished outfits.

So, you can wear one heavy jewellery piece with that gorgeous worked lehenga of yours. Whereas, if you opt for a plain saree with a deep neck blouse, don't be afraid to experiment with heavy jewellery. This will maintain the balance and give it that "Shaddi wala Feel".

Don't be the bride!

Bangles and Rings

Most guests forget when attending a wedding that they don't have to look like they are the bride. Taking notes from the above point, wearing a heavy outfit with a complete set of heavy jewellery is for the bride and bride only! It's her day, and she is the centre of the show, so a bride can go all out and wear all that bridal jewellery. Although you want to look your best, you must make sure you don't go overboard and dress up equally as a bride.

Mix & Match:

Costume for Mehendi and Sangeet

Mehendi and Sangeet are functions where you can experiment. Knot a white shirt over your lehenga skirt, wear that Kundan choker necklace, and you are all set to make that statement. You can go for jewellery pieces that contrast with your outfit. For the cocktail party, go for those sparkling diamonds, as they will never disappoint you! Mix traditional jewellery designs with modern ones, and I am sure you will look fab!

Experiment with silver jewellery:

Silver Jewellery

One should never underestimate the power of silver or junk jewellery when it comes to weddings!! If you want to stand out from the crowd while everyone wears their gold, Polki, and diamond jewellery, you show off your silver stack. Bohemian style has become a trend these days, so an oxidised silver jhumka with long necklaces and kadas will go well with your mirror work saree or lehenga. Don't forget that smokey eye look and nude lips!

Reach out for that heirlooms:


We all have that one piece of jewellery from our mom's or grandma's closet that we love and are waiting for that perfect day to style it. Weddings are the best time to showcase that heirloom jewellery piece. The classy traditional designs always make a statement, especially if you are wearing something that has brocade or banarasi work in the hues of royal colours.

I think you might have got clarity on the jewellery pieces you need to style this wedding season. Whatever jewellery you choose, make sure you rock your look with confidence and enjoy all the moment.
