I didn’t spend anything.  I am wearing a pearl bracelet my mother gave to me for my birthday a few years ago as my something old.  I am also wearing a pair of pearl earrings my FMIL wore for her wedding as my something borrowed.  I haven’t decided about whether I am wearing a necklace but even if I planned to wear it after the wedding, $350 is a lot for wedding jewelry, especially when a nice full strand of pearls is under $100.  Plus, pearls don’t hold up well to daily use.  The strand popped on my strung pearl necklace recently because I wore it too often to court.

Similarly to PP I’m planning on wearing a family necklace and some earrings I already own. I wouldn’t spend $350 on a necklace for the wedding even if I were planning on wearing it afterwards. Then again, I don’t think I would ever spend $350 on a necklace

I didn’t want to go too crazy on things I probably won’t wear very often.

I spent around $125 on earrings, bracelet, and haircomb (mine was fairly small though).

I spent $120 for earrings and bracelet. I set a max of $150. Bridal jewelry, like anything wedding related, can be so costly. The bridal salon I went to had earrings and bracelets sets starting at $600!!! This is costumer jewlery, not like real precious metals or something of super high quality. 

However, that being said, everyone has a different budget. If I had the ability to allocate more to jewelry, I would, but I don’t. So what one person sees as expensive, another finds reasonable. If there is something you love and it’s within your overall budget, I don’t see a problem with it.

My FI is buying me earrings as my gift and I plan to purchase a braclet. I would like the bracelet to be something nice that I can still wear everyday though so I’ve set a max of $150 (I want it to be something that won’t tarnish). I’m not sure how much FI will spend on the earrings but we both agreed we’d rather spend more and have it be quality and that I like than spend less and have to buy more jewelry down the road. I don’t know that I could spend $350 on a piece though, that’d be too much for something I want to wear frequently, if it works for you though and you love it, go for it!

$0

Earrings were my favorite diamond studs given to me by my Grandmother, and I wore a strand of her pearls. No bracelet because I hate wearing bracelets.

I wore jewelry I already had, so it didn’t cost me anything on the day, but when the jewelry was purchased for me it was probably expensive — in the ballpark of the necklace you’re looking at. I think it’s a really pretty necklace, one that you could wear a lot. Get it if you love it and have the money for it.

$30 for earrings. The necklace I was wearing was given to me by my late Grandmother before she passed.
