When you are planning your Nashville wedding, it can be hard to strike a balance between making the experience memorable for everyone involved and keeping within your budget! Custom jewelry for everyone in your wedding party is one of the most special ways that you can honor your bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom, or your maid of honor, but how do you keep these special gifts from breaking the bank?

Custom Jewelry For Your Wedding Party and Your Budget

Nashville, Tennessee, is a memorable place not only to propose but to hold your nuptials and celebrate the beginning of your new life together. There are a million little details to take care of when you’re planning your wedding, but thinking about custom jewelry for your party doesn't have to be stressful. 

Keep these in mind in order to ensure that your wedding party walks away from the ceremony with timeless, beautiful pieces that will always remind them of your special day, what you mean to them, and the memories you share.

Custom or engraved jewelry is a special gift that honors the special relationship you have with each member of your wedding party, family, and friends. For example, custom-designed jewelry can complement or be created in the same spirit as your custom engagement ring and become a family heirloom.

Custom-made jewelry doesn’t necessarily have to be more expensive than pre-designed pieces, but they can depend on the stones, materials, style, and design you choose. However, custom jewelry will take longer to create and deliver (just like your custom engagement ring) so make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to avoid any disappointments or frustrations.

Your Style, Their Style, and Other Things to Consider

If you’ve chosen to have your wedding party wear jewelry, here are a few things to consider to make sure things go smoothly before, on, and after your big day.

Match or Complement

Do you want everyone to match you, match each other, or would a mix and match strategy be a crowd-pleaser? Usually, the bride’s jewelry should be distinct (after all, it IS her day!) which leaves the wedding party free to have pieces that either match or complement the color of their attire. The mother of the bride may also have a piece that is distinct. Flower girls may opt for more simple or less expensive pieces.

Controlling Budget

Allowing everyone to be able to select their own piece may be a tempting idea, but can end up being a big headache, and contribute to an out-of-control budget, fast! Uniform pieces can be a great cost-control measure, but allowing your party to mix and match or choose between pre-selected pieces may provide you with an opportunity to spend less overall than you planned for.

Type of Jewelry

Earrings are a good choice, but not everyone has pierced ears. Some have allergies to certain metals and depending on their hairdo (up or down), one style may disappear completely or be too much.

Necklaces are another great option for your wedding party, but depending on the gowns or dresses that they are wearing, the wrong length or style could get lost or be awkward. Before deciding on a necklace or necklace option for your wedding party, it’s a good idea to get an idea of what they will be wearing!

Bracelets are a piece of jewelry that can easily be worn by most and will most likely be visible regardless of what those in your wedding party choose to wear unless their attire is long-sleeved. Bracelets, however, are a little less formal and project more of a friendly than devoted sentiment.
