Wearing any piece of jewellery with your outfit is the best way to make a fashion faux pas. In order to be a stylish bride, you must know how to pair your jewellery with the outfit you are wearing.
1. Say a 'yes' to contrast
Don’t be a faint-hearted bride. The latest fashion is to play with looks and colours. Up your bridal style by opting for a contrast look.
Do not match your jewellery with the colour of your lehenga. Instead, contrast the colours. This is going to create a beautiful and contemporary look.

Think of a bold combination and do not shy away from donning the look on your big day. Coming to the options, you definitely have ample. Choose from red and blue, violet and green, pink and blue, pink and green, yellow and green, white and pink, beige and blue, emerald and pink/maroon/red, and the list goes on. You could also opt for multiple jewellery styles like the doughnut-loving bride above - Jadau jewellery, Kundan jewellery, Haath Phools and a Shikargarh Nath.
2. Multi-colour jewellery
It is not necessary to wear gold from top to bottom. You can opt for more contemporary options when it comes to your bridal jewellery.
Imagine yourself in multi-coloured stone jewellery. Aren’t you looking gorgeous?
If you are thinking minimal in terms of your outfit, you can play with the multi-coloured jewellery. Give your neutral coloured wedding outfit a lift with multi-coloured jewellery.
3. Think beyond simple gold
We know that gold is divine but there are many other lucrative options that cannot be turned down. Of course, you can opt for gold jewellery on one function, but for others, we will provide you with many options.
Whenever you go to buy jewellery for lehenga, keep your eyes away from plain gold pieces. The markets are laden with some of the most stunning pieces in pearls, stones, beads, Kundan, etc.
However, if gold is your metal of choice, consider it in new designs or multiple layers.
4. Diamonds are forever
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and how can you turn down your best friend at your wedding?
Of course, there are going to be many wedding functions and you can opt for diamond jewellery for at least one function.
Diamonds always look good. Be it your haldi, Mehendi, Sangeet, pheras or reception; you can wear diamonds on any functions. Be it a day function or a night function; you can opt for a stunning piece in a diamond. Be it a lehenga, a saree or a suit; diamond jewellery can be paired with anything and everything.
This makes diamonds a perfect pick for your wedding.
