So, you purchased the dress, the shoes, and the veil and now you just need your bridal jewelry, but you aren't sure where to buy it. There are a lot of options out there because in just about every shopping mall or strip mall there are jewelry stores and they all seem the same to you. This is a common concern and this is where your budget and your friends may help you.

The first thing you need to do is determine what your wedding jewelry budget is. If you have $100 you are obviously going to be shopping at a different place than if your budget was $1,000 or $10,000. When you use your budget as your guide choosing where to shop suddenly becomes a lot easier. Now that you have your bridal jewelry budget set you need to ask your friends where they have had good experiences. Jewelry, whether it is really expensive or more affordable, is something that a lot of people are passionate about and your friends won't hesitate to give you good or bad reviews. Take note of the shops and resources recommended by your friends.

Now it is time to start shopping! If you don't have a huge budget for your wedding jewelry you don't need to feel bad. Some online jewelry stores offer entire bridal jewelry sets that are affordable. You can hit your local super store and pick up some really great pieces that will work just fine for your wedding day for less than $50! If you have a little bit more to spend but still don't have a huge budget, you may want to try the shop where you got your dress as they often have some really great bridal jewelry that is not real but looks it and is affordable.

You may want to shop a few locations for your bridal jewelry before you buy. This will give you a good idea of what is out there, what will fit into your budget, and even allow you to experiment with many different styles, stones, etcetera. Jewelry is a big part of your wedding day attire, so don't feel like you have to rush the decision. You can wait until the day before your wedding if you haven't found what you are looking for. If you aren't sure what will look best, bring a friend with you and have them give you some input! Shopping for your jewelry is a once in a lifetime experience, so have fun with it!
