Usually, the wedding season comes with a lot of pomp and show but the wedding season of 2016 has definitely come with a lot of surprises from the Indian Government. Due to demonetization, people are unable to use their existing currency and those preparing for their upcoming weddings have been affected the most due to a prevailing cash crunch.
Shopping has predominantly taken an online shape and people are finding tricks to somehow organize a cashless wedding. But what about the bride’s jewelry? She definitely can’t walk down the aisle without any bling. So, to ensure that you brides-to-be look ravishing on your D-day, here are five alternatives to precious and expensive jewelry that look just as good and will not burn holes in your pocket.
1. Fashion Jewelry
Let’s admit it, when we visit a fashion jewelry store which had a good collection of intricately designed necklaces, earrings, rings etc, it becomes hard to differentiate between an original kundan set and an artificial one. Also, artificial pearl jewelry can look pretty much like expensive, real pearls and are a great option to pair with bridal ensembles.

3. Handcrafted Jewelry
Handcrafted jewelry has a charm of its own. It could be made by an artisan of a friend using regular stones, pom poms, fringes etc. The only game changer in this type of jewelry is the color combinations. We say, the brighter, the better!
