    I think I’m going to wear family jewelry. Key word is think. If not that, then buy. 🙂

    My mother in law bought me a diamond necklace from Blue Nile.

    For the ceremony, my friend let me borrow her expensive, fancy diamond earrings. I was paranoid about losing them so for the reception, I wore cheap chandelier earrings I bought at a local accessory store.

    I’ll either wear borrowed jewelry (my mom’s pearls maybe) or buy costume jewelry to wear (from etsy).  I wouldn’t invest in new “real” jewelry just for this, with how much we’re already spending on everything else wedding related.  But if you have the budget, it would be nice to mark the occasion with some new pieces!

    i’m borrowing a necklace and bracelet from my mom, and my grandma bought me new earrings (that actually came with a necklace, so after the wedding i’ll have a nice set to wear).

    I bought a necklace from overstock.com, and my earrings were just cheap from Claires. Personally, I like the idea of buying nice jewelry for the wedding because I think it would make a GREAT heirloom. A dress goes in and out of style, but a nice diamond pendant or pearl necklace or earrings don’t really go out of style and they keep their value, if not go up, unlike the dress. A daughter of mine may not want my dress, but I think she’d be much more open to jewelry!

    Another option: I already owned my galaxy pearl necklace (a gift from my husband a couple years before the wedding) and I was planning on wearing plain pearl stud earrings and on the day of the wedding my husband surprised me with pearl and diamond earrings I wore instead. I also wore my engagement ring (of course!) and my something borrowed was a friend’s pearl and diamond ring.

    Yeah, you definitely need a “borrowing” option. I think that is pretty popular! I may buy a bracelet but I am wearing my own necklace that Fiance me and the earrings my maid of honor wore on her wedding day.
