The Prettiest Wedding Jewelry Inspired by Celebrity Brides, From Meghan Markle to Mandy Moore
You have your dress, your veil, and your shoes — now it’s time to accessorize! When it comes to wedding jewelry, it’s important to say “I Do” to the right jewels. You don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune to get a princess-worthy style, but at the same time, you also don’t want to find yourself wearing bad faux diamonds that will cheapen your look.
The key is to choose wisely while still keeping your budget in check. To help us get some inspiration, we turned to some of our favorite celebrity brides who have already gone down the aisle — and we found tons of inexpensive lookalikes for their bridal jewelry, including earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and hairpieces that look like a million bucks. Ahead, find everything from pearl bracelets to diamond teardrop earrings that won’t cost as much as your open bar (thankfully).
The royal wedding may have been an extravagant event, but Meghan Markle kept her bridal look simple. From her natural makeup to her classic halo diamond studs, the Duchess made it super easy for us to emulate her wedding day style.
The Duchess also donned a gorgeous dainty bracelet on her right wrist. A little arm candy is a nice subtle accessory to complement your bridal style.

Let Princess Eugenie be your inspiration to add a pop of color to your wedding day look. The royal wore a pair of diamond and emerald drop earrings, gifted to her by her husband Jack Brooksbank.
Pearl bridal jewelry is a classic for a reason. Even though the blushing bride took a unique spin on her wedding dress by choosing not to wear white, she kept her jewelry simple with a gold pearl bracelet.
