Definitely going for CZ or some type of costume jewellery. I can’t afford diamonds and I don’t think it looks stupid at all to wear CZ

I think most bridal jewellery is gorgeous… whether it’s CZ, faux pearls, glass, beads, ribbons etc… I think anything goes! 🙂

My dilemma is that whilst I couldn’t afford right now to go and buy new diamond jewellery especially for the day, I do have some beautiful diamond jewellery that I’ve collected over the years.

I can’t decide whether to wear all “real” jewellery on the day so that I can have and wear those pieces forever (into old age) and pass them down to either our children (if we have them) or close family… or whether to wear pretty CZ jewellery that has more of an impact on the day, but which may not exactly last forever.

I love the idea of creating family heirlooms by wearing my real stuff on the day… but aesthetically I love some of my CZ chandellier earrings which are a lot more “wow” than the real thing.

I’m going to wear pearls on  my wrist and neck. I’m borrowing my mom’s diamond earings and that’s it!
