When is it appropriate to rewear your wedding jewelry?
I am thinking about rewearing it to some other weddings (while wearing non-white party dresses).
Faux pas? Or totally acceptable?
Are you planning on rewearing your wedding jewelry?
(And hi! I haven’t been on the boards in over a year!)

I am not sure why you wouldnt be able to wear your wedding jewelry as long as it is appropriate, as in super fancy to a hoe-down = not appropriate.
No one but you will really remember if its your wedding jewelry so its not like you are going to “outshine” anyone.
I had heirloom earrings, which myself and my mom have certainly wore again, and a costume bracelet, which I have worn to work many times.

@ThreeMeers: good point. I guess I am just nervous. Does it make a difference if it is for my brother’s wedding?
I won’t be wearing the necklace (it’s my mom’s) but I would like to wear the earrings and bracelet again.
Most people probably won’t remember it, I suppose that is right.

@ellabee: I don’t see why you couldn’t wear it again as long as it’s not too fancy for the occasion. I agree with ThreeMeers … Most people won’t remember the jewelry you wore at your wedding. I honestly couldn’t tell you what one of my best friends wore in her wedding a few years ago and I was a bridesmaid so I was with her all day. If you love the jewelry, wear it again! I’m sure I’ll wear the earrings I choose (I still haven’t decided on a pair) again in the future.

@angelinthesnowxo: 🙂 Thank you! I feel a lot better about this now. I made a point to buy something nicer than I usually would buy, and now I’m afraid to wear it. It’s not super fancy it’s just not the cheap stuff I usually get. I splurged on a set from Swarovski. 🙂

Umm… I’m not buying new jewelry for my wedding. I’ll either wear something I already own, or borrow something from my mom/sister. So, I don’t see why it couldn’t be worn again 🙂

I’m sure it’s totally fine. No one will remember.

I think it’s totally okay, but for some over the top wedding jewelry, it wouldn’t be very often imo.
I mean, if you have a HUGE blingy statement necklace.. when exactly would you wear that? It wouldn’t exactly go with casual wear, and I doubt anyone here has a big fancy ball to go to every weekend! That being said, I wouldn’t wear something huge and blingy to another persons wedding either.. as it may look like you’re trying to out-do the bride.
That being said, if the necklace is somewhat simple, I could totally see someone wearing theirs again.
My dress is VERY over the top, so I just wanted a little bling but not all BAM! statement.
This is my necklace set :

@jenilynevette: 🙂 Yeah, none of it is over the top. I will rewear it. Yay!

- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
I bought a dressier pair of earrings from Nadri and a basic pendant necklace to match, from eve’s addiction. http://www.evesaddiction.com/detail_NLZ11030__213.html?utm_source=pinterest
