I definitely wore CZ/fake pearl earrings. I didn’t even think twice about it. They were something that felt bridal to me and I loved them..but I knew they would likely never be worn again so I wasn’t going to spend a lot of money on them. Had I bought something more practical like simple pearl or diamond studs I might have splurged for the real deal.

I didn’t want to wear cz either. So I’m wearing blue sapphire jewelry that I already own. (Bracelet, necklace, and right hand ring.) It’s all sterling silver (not white gold) but I consider sterling silver “real” and am ok with it. 🙂

I ordered fairly inexpensive bridal jewlery from Etsy to wear for my wedding this fall and I love it! Rose gold plated with swarski crystal pearls and CZ. It sparkles like crazy and was so affordable (earrings were $35!) that I don’t mind. I‘m positive they’ll look good in the photos and if it completes the look you want without breaking the bank why not?

I am definitely going cz jewellery for the day except for my ring, as will probably never wear again so this way I can get exactly what I want without the huge price tag.

Also I am going more for what looks pretty than being worried about what it is made of.

I am going with cz jewellery. I can’t bring myself to spend so much $$ for one day.

I ordered off of etsy and the look is exactly what I need.

Personal preference though!

They aren’t fake unless we’re talking holograms of jewelry. Diamonds don’t own the color clear. Other jewels and accents can be clear. They are simply a different item from diamonds. Its only tacky if you get jewelry that doesn’t match with your dress. The molecular composition of your accessories is irrelevant.

I was lucky and was gifted some lovely diamond jewelry (1ct diamond pendant and a beautiful diamond flower ring) before my first wedding, but I also wore some CZ pave hoop earrings and sterling silver bracelet.

I don’t think it really matters if it’s CZ or diamond, as long as you like it!

I am on your page with this line of thought, I see where you are coming from.  I didn’t mind the concept of simulant/moissanite earnings, but I don’t personally prefer necklaces made of large, complex or /stimulants/faux jewelry for bridalwear.  I like the idea of borrowing something as your something borrowed if you don’t own a piece, or a gift of jewelry sent to your room from your about-to-be spouse.  I don’t know that I’ve ever taken note in a negative way of a bride wearing simulant necklaces in photos or while attending weddings though, so I think it is a personal preference exclusively for myself.  I’ve actually seen some very pretty necklace pieces that I thought truly accented the neckline of some bridal gowns that I thought were really striking and enhanced the beauty of the bride on her day.  So I guess it is “no for me” but for other brides, “absolutely yes wear them!”   Overall, as I’ve changed in style, I just prefer fewer more expensive pieces of jewelry to multiple fashionable accents so maybe it is just how I think these days.

On my wedding day, I borrowed a tennis bracelet from my mom and amazing drop diamond earrings from my jeweler. I would look into borrowing from friends and family if possible. It’s much more meaningful.

I wore CZ’s on my wedding day. I don’t wear jewelry so I knew I would never wear it again. It didn’t make sense to me to spend a lot of money on something I don’t actually enjoy wearing.

 I know exactly what you are feeling about wearing costume on my wedding day and personally I did not want to go that route so I also borrowed from my mum. She loaned me her diamond drop earrings and they looked great and were my something borrowed.
