All that GlittersSomething Old, Something New....

Those brides too practical to worry about jewellery in the real world use it on their marriage day to test off all of the "somethings" that bring good lucksomething old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Irrespective of your reason for wearing jewellery on your marriage day, it should enhance the overall theme of the marriage, including the ritual of the occasion, the planning of the marriage dress, and the bridal color palette if your jewellery includes color.

The normal bridal jewellery ensemble includes pearl and / or diamond earrings and necklace, often heirloom pieces ( something old, something borrowed ). Originally worn as a symbol of purity, pearls are understated, sublime and undying. A rare bride can afford to be gaudy and showy with diamonds, and those that can know better. On your marriage day, less is always more unless you are Elizabeth Taylor. Discount wedding candles. There is a fine line between a fairy story look and gaudy. You may have no difficulty finding a role for candles at the marriage rite, at the reception, and even as a part of the floral displays. The precise evolution of the unity candle is doubtful, but since it began 30-40 years back, it appears that we have that ever-lively 60s generation to thank for yet one more custom which has wormed its way into modern life. I would like to propose my private idea of the unity candle's originan unlikely science experiment. Isn't that what wedding is meant to bea single unit stronger than the sum of its parts? The most conventional of the variations on the theme is the tall, thick white candle in the middle of a candleholder trapped on each side by a white taper.

Whether you choose studs, or hanging earrings, pearls or diamonds, the key words are fragile and classy. Out with the guidelines : wear whatever makes you appearance good. If you elect to wear a tiara, limit the remainder of your jewellery to easy stud or button earrings and understated neckwear.
