Keep it subtle

You do not need to go overboard with it- we feel floral jewellery looks best when it's kept subtle- and not too overtly match-matchy all over!
Keep one statement piece- not all!

SO this bride had a busy lehenga and those gorgeous shoes- so she kept her floral jewellery light and let the haathphool do all the talking- keeping the other pieces understated. So when opting for floral jewellery, make one piece the highlight, or max 2 if you have a plain lehenga.
Colorblock your jewellery with your outfit
Now this is another point to remember- decide what you want your floral jewellery to do for your look- add a contrast and stand out or blend in. Two cases above of how these brides got it right with a yellow outfit.
Get jewellery that mimics real styles: Eg satlada

There are loads and loads of options available out there- make sure to not get floral jewellery that looks like just a garland of flowers strewn together. There are amazing ones that look super nice- just check out this floral satlada! So unique and different!
Know that fresh floral jewellery isn't your only option

Apart from fresh floral jewellery, you've got loads of other things these days- dry floral jewellery, a mix of dry and fresh, and even dry floral jewellery with pearls or gota! So pick wisely :)
You don't need to go all floral- you can mix and match with jewellery pieces!
So these two brides mixed and matched their floral jewellery with normal jewellery, and while it does look nice, it also tones down an all-floral look to something nicer we think!
Floral wreath on the head? Do it right!

This is possibly the easiest thing to go wrong with! A floral wreath on the head can look like too much and very bad if you pair it with floral jewellery all over too! Either make it 'the look', keeping other floral jewellery to a minimum, or do it like this bride- pairing it with nothing else that's floral! And make sure the wreath is unique and not too busy with an overload of colour!
Try new ideas: Wire flowers and new-age fresh flowers that are unique
Anything that can make thedesign stand out and just learn to keep it delicate and minimal.
Flowers in your hair and floral jewellery? Do it right!

Now going all out with floral jewellery AND flowers in your hair can get a bit much. But do it in a subtle manner like this bride did- she didn't keep it matching, and her floral jewellery was white, which really did not make it stand out too much!
