Costume jewellery for weddings abroad

Whether you are the bride, a bridesmaid or a guest attending a wedding abroad, you really should consider your costume jewellery as carefully as you would chose your outfit.

Things to consider when choosing your costume jewellery includes most importantly the weather in the country you will be visiting. If it’s a hot country, your costume jewellery should really stay as light as possible. So don’t layer on loads or costume jewellery that might make you all agitated. Try a statement piece of costume jewellery instead like a cocktail ring or statement earrings

Finally and most importantly consider the theme of the wedding. If it’s very simple then go for simple costume jewellery; if it’s got for example a Las Vegas themed wedding or an Asian themed wedding go for more elaborate costume jewellery.

Another idea is to mix in a statement necklace like the Green Chic necklace with a stunning piece of hair jewellery.
