Admit it: You can’t help but picture your dream wedding even when you’re not tying the knot yet. How can you not when you see celebrity weddings left and right? Also, it’s fun to think of all the possible dresses and looks you can rock once the day comes.
Then it dawns on you that the price tag might be hefty for everything from the decorations to what you’ll wear. But if brides like Kimi Juan and Rich Asuncion can wear affordable RTW dresses, nothing’s impossible. Let’s not forget that fast fashion brand Mango also has a P10,000 piece that can pass for a wedding gown.
What’s left now are the accessories you can wear on your big day. They don’t have to be crazy expensive, but you shouldn’t compromise on the quality of your elegant bling. If you’re walking the aisle soon and looking to save some coin, refer to our list below.
Nami x Suyen Gabriela
If you’re looking for dainty hairpieces, you should check out hairstylist Suyen Salazar’s collab with Nami. Gabriela, for example, is a ring and rod piece perfect for doing small middle-part buns. They also come in three metals: sterling silver, gold plated, and rose gold plated. You can use this if you want a more laidback hairstyle under your veil. Available at Tropa Store.
Pandora Chandelier Droplets Necklace
We imagine this necklace being worn over a deep V-neck wedding dress or any dress that shows off the decolletage area. Made from two sterling silver chains with cubic zirconia stones, this necklace will be a great statement piece as it drapes around your neck. Available at Glorietta 4.
F&C Jewelry Bracelet
For your something blue, you can go for this F&C jewelry which has a thin band and a prominent blue crystal. It’s like a simple bangle so you don’t have to worry about clasping and unclasping it every time. Available at SM Aura Premier.
Thomas Sabo Pearl Earrings
Give your go-to hoops a break first and opt for simple dangling pearl earrings. This one is made from “cultured-freshwater pearls” that will make any look soft and elegant. This is also proof that you don’t always need diamonds to look radiant on your wedding. Available at SM Megamall.
Miladay Amore MVI-2675 Wedding Bands
Lastly, the wedding bands. You can get this 18-karat white gold pair from Miladay. One of them has diamonds embedded in it. Go get your ring sizes at the nearest Miladay store to see if these are the rings for you and your partner. Available at House of Miladay, Jupiter Street, Makati City.
