We've got the insider tips and tricks when it comes to styling your wedding day look, accessories included. Once you've found and purchased your wedding dress, you should definitely start thinking about what kind of bling you want to wear with it! Follow these steps to select your wedding day jewelry and avoid a fashion mishap:

Avoid these bridal attire don'ts:

Don't wait until the last minute to purchase your jewelry! You'll want to give the jewelry plenty of time to get your custom jewelry pieces to you before the big day. Purchase or order your jewelry at least one month prior to your wedding day so you have plenty of time to try your jewels on with your wedding gown.

Don't compete with your gown! Whether you do or don't wear a lot of jewelry in your everyday life, make sure that you don't over-accessorize on your wedding day. If your gown has ornate, intricate details, stick to dainty pieces. For those daring brides who want to rock a statement piece down the aisle, make sure you keep the wow-factor to one piece and use minimalist pieces elsewhere.

If you're looking for a true statement piece, consider the Elegance PG40 from the Brian Gavin collection. The fashion bracelet features 2011 round brilliant diamonds and 909 sapphires. Wear the bracelet as your "something blue" to really stand out from the crowd.

An understated, dainty piece of custom jewelry to consider are the Flora Drops drop earrings from Brian Gavin. The 18K white gold earrings feature 0.84 ctw diamond melee and are sure to complement, rather than compete with, your lace wedding gown.

Keep these bridal attire do's in mind:

Make a statement! You don't have to wear an oversized necklace to stand out on your wedding day. Chandelier earrings, a cuff bracelet or oversized pearl studs are an excellent way to make a classy statement with your custom jewelry pieces.

Stick to the classics! If all else fails and your jewelry wedding day jewelry shopping is turning into a nightmare, think about wearing timeless pieces instead of trying to be trendy. A strand of pearls and classic diamond studs are so Audrey Hepburn. Likewise, Marilyn Monroe knew what she was talking about when she made the famous statement, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend." Stick with these two types of jewelry styles to emulate a classic look on your wedding day.

One piece that incorporates both of these timeless elements into the design are the standard Pearls from Brian Gavin. The pearl studs start at a 2x8 mm, with the option to supplement larger stones. Six 0.5 ctw diamond melee border the pearls to take them up a notch.

Get personal on your wedding day with monogrammed jewelry. Find a piece with the letter of your new last name and put it on after the ceremony! Initial and monogram pieces are a hot commodity in the bridal industry right now and can also be used as bridesmaids gifts!

Give your bridesmaids a personalized gift, such as the Megan initial pendant. You can select from white,yellow and rose gold to complement your girls' individual skin tones. The necklace design features a 16​-inch bead chain and a heart-shaped pendant. Each pendant is made to order with diamond melee placed in the center of the heart to create the initial.
