Just as a bride will plan, source, experiment and budget for her own bridal accessories she will also need to shift her attention towards her bridesmaid's accessories at some point in the wedding planning process. It's no good having a stunning bride, accessorised to the max, standing at the altar in front of three drab looking bridesmaids who look like they are in desperate need of some sparkle. It's the complete look of the whole ensemble that really counts and makes an impact, just as every bride strives to achieve. At the same time every bride has a budget they need to consider before making any brash decisions and things like bridesmaid accessories do need some careful consideration in terms of their expense, the required style, the colour, the size and how they will contribute to the complete look.
In the case of accessorising a bridesmaid it is possible to ‘kill two birds with one stone'. Most brides will combine their bridesmaid's accessories with a jewellery gift for them on the day and there is no better way to do this than to have some jewellery, necklace, bracelet, earrings or even jewellery sets made especially for them which not only matches their dresses but can be presented to them as a gift on the day. Now that's one way to save on the bridesmaid gifts and the other is to seek affordable bridesmaid jewelry that fits within your individual budget. Bridesmaid necklaces need not cost you more than £25.00 if you choose wisely. This doesn't mean you have to go for mass-produced, manufactured in China items either. It is possible to buy bridesmaid jewellery made in the UK which is bespoke and tailor made to your own individual needs, even if you are on a tight budget! Simplicity is the key, if you opt for jewellery which is delicate, pretty and not too statement you will surely find something to suit your needs. Simple and delicate jewellery means less time is taken to make them than intricate, flashy and ornate necklaces. The price of a handmade item such as a bridesmaid necklace will reflect the time a designer has spent in making it so the bigger a piece is the more costly it will be. So, keeping it simple is the key. Most bridesmaids only need a little sparkle anyway the bride wound not want to be overshadowed.
Now, bridesmaid jewellery which is handmade in the UK usually has the option to be custom made in many different crystal colours to compliment any dress. UK jewellery designers will be able to offer you a choice of over 50 different Swarovski crystal colours so you will surely find something to either match or compliment your bridesmaid's dresses beautifully.
Perhaps you could choose a pendant necklace on a silver chain which has a little pearl and crystal droplet or perhaps a beautiful crystal bauble or crystal cluster droplet instead, a touch of something at one focal point just below the collar bone? Maybe you would prefer a necklace made on invisible wire which allows a more delicate and airy look with colour and sparkle all the way around the neckline? Whatever you desire, Lisa Matthews Jewellery will be able to create this for you and at an affordable price.
Depending on your budget you might also want to treat your bridesmaids to a hair accessory made especially for them in a matching crystal colour to their jewellery. This does not have to be expensive either as Lisa Matthews Jewellery offers bridesmaid tiaras and bridemaid headbands for under £30.00.
