Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding outfit. While many brides are excited to start shopping early, they often make some common mistakes that can lead to confusion and disappointment. In this article, we'll address some of the major stereotypical ideas that brides may have and we'll ask industry experts what they think about these mistakes.
Mistake 1: Starting Wedding Outfit Shopping Too Early
One of the most common mistakes that brides generally tend to make when starting their wedding outfit shopping is doing so too early. Nowadays, engagements are kept longer than they used to be, so it's inevitable to get excited and start shopping and looking around at what's out there. However, when you start something so far in advance (which is about a year to a year and a half in advance), it can get a little confusing for a lot of brides because the choice is unlimited.
- Pro Tip from Charmi
At charming creations, experts recommend starting your research and shopping between four months to seven months before the wedding. This time frame is plenty of time for you to make a decision on which designer you'd like to go with.
Mistake 2: Having A Set Look In Mind
Another common mistake that brides make is fixating on a certain picture they've seen on the web, on social media, or in magazines, and having a set look that they want to create. While it's important to have a vision, it's also important to have a conversation with your makeup artist and put your trust in them that they have their professional opinion too. This will ensure that you create a look that's going to look good on your features and your skin, and that's going to suit you.

Mistake 3: Leaving Your Jewellery Till The End
One major mistake is not leaving enough time for your jewellery to be styled and created for you. At Kyles, our experts need about three weeks to hand craft your jewellery. We offer an instore or virtual consultation to assess all the needs that you may have, plus what's going to suit you. Our team take a lot of pride in taking all of these concepts and aspects into consideration before they help you style and create a jewellery piece to suit your style and of course budget.

Mistake 4: Not Taking Care Of Hair Leading Up To The Wedding
Every bride dreams of having long luscious hair on their wedding day, but it's more important to maintain healthy-looking hair. One of the biggest mistakes most brides make is that they don't cover and trim their hair leading up to the big day. Experts recommend trimming the hair, keeping it healthy, and conditioning it leading up to the wedding day.

Mistake 5: Doing Aerobics And Starving Themselves To Look Perfect
One of my favourite clients are brides, but the mistake they often make is doing hours of aerobics and going on a no-calorie starvation diet, which has shown not to work. Experts suggest getting a vision of exactly what you want to look like in your wedding dress and backing it up with high-intensity resistance training and a low glycemic diet. This will help you get great results.
- Pro Tip from Jagir
Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, but with the right guidance and support, it can be a wonderful experience. By avoiding these common mistakes, brides can ensure that they look and feel their best on their special day. Experts recommend starting the shopping process at the right time, having a vision, taking care of your hair, and focusing on a healthy lifestyle. These tips will help you have a successful and enjoyable wedding experience.

If you’re someone who loves colourful jewellery but feel it limits you to accessorise it with only a couple of outfits, here are some styling tips that will help to create more versatile and usable jewellery combinations.
Most people tend to have 1-3 core colours that they love wearing regularly. Based on the colours of your choice, our expert stylists can advise on versatile combinations that you can also wear with multiple outfits.
Accent Colour Combinations
Some customers have one particular colour found across many of their outfits. For such instances, we recommend having a little bit of an accent colour in your jewellery which is complimented with neutral tones like clear crystal or golden shadow Swarovski crystals to give some flexibility to go with other outfits. Take these products for example which only uses a hint of Pacific opal along with neutral crystals.
At Kyles we have many accessories which look amazing with harmonic colour hues. These combinations complement each other so well using vibrant shades along with subtle pastel Swarovski crystals to balance out the look.
Take for instance these Ela Cluster Earrings which have various hues of pink, green, and golden shadow. With this colour combination, you have more opportunities to wear these earrings with different colour outfits in your wardrobe as well as combining them with western and traditional Indian outfits.
Shades of a Colour
Rather than going for a completely monotone look such as all golden shadow crystals or an all emerald crystal combo to match one specific outfit, why not opt for a variety of shades of that colour? This option allows you to wear the jewellery again and again should you wish to wear another shade of that colour.
If you like wearing neutral colours like beige or cream, we’d advise a variety of shades within the that colour spectrum. This will allow you switch from wearing dark-coloured outfits to light-coloured outfits.
Another example is if you like wearing various shades of blue, then we can create a combination that will not limit you to wearing the jewellery with one specific colour tone.
The different hues of that colour in your jewellery will also ensure your final look doesn’t look flat or monotone.

We all want to look perfect for that special occasion, however many people do not strike the right balance of accessories to suit their look. We believe striking the right balance along with the right colour combination is an imperative part in looking your best. In our 30 years of jewellery experience, we have found the right looks to bring out someone’s true beauty.
Whether you’re a bride or attending an event, here are some useful tips to create your perfect ensemble.
What's The Event Theme or Occasion?
Whether it’s a traditional wedding or Western-style soirée, you’ll find a range of bespoke designs from modern to more ethnic styles to reflect the occasion.
If you’re a traditional bride-to-be or attending a traditional event, we will advise on selecting sets that will harmoniously go with your traditional outfit as well as paying homage to your heritage and family customs. For traditional events we have vintage-style jhumki earrings with clustered beads which are on trend with the occasion.
If it’s a civil wedding ceremony or a similar event, we will help create a bespoke set to match more contemporary outfits with our modern or fusion jewellery designs. There is still no compromise with our lighter sets as they equally make a statement.
The below Manasa headpiece is a perfect accessory for someone attending a wedding with just the right amount of sparkle to suit the outfit and occasion.
Your outfit (e.g. neckline, embroidery and colour) will often guide us in advising on the best jewellery designs and how many pieces are sufficient.
We understand that some brides-to-be and event attendees want a full set – necklace, earrings, tikka, jummar, nath, etc – but we advise on creating a balanced look with carefully selected pieces that still meets or supersedes their expectations.
If your outfit has a high neckline (example below), a necklace or choker may look congested. However, it leaves room to experiment with other pieces like statement earrings and headpieces.
If a necklace is a must, we then advise on trying a Rani Harr for that fuller bridal look.
At the end of the day, we want you to be your true authentic self and we can reflect that in the jewellery. Thanks to our bespoke design service, we cater for all styles from the most elaborate designs to simpler sets.
If bigger jewellery pieces are your preference, then we consider your outfit and the event to design an ensemble that will reflect your out-going nature without compromising on elegance.
For those that take a ‘less is more’ approach, we can certainly tailor our designs to your preferred style or remove pieces for a lighter feel.
We can also advise on the perfect crystal and plating combinations to enhance your outfit and create your signature look.
What’s Your Next Event?
We have jewellery for every occasion. Choose from our traditional, modern or fusion designs that are sure to compliment your outfit and make you feel your best at any function.
Book a free consultation with an expert stylist and let’s create you a unique set or simply browse hundreds of items online and talk to our team via WhatsApp if that's easier.

Is gold jewellery still the preferred choice for south Asians or are there any other quality options?
Throughout time gold has always being a respected asset by South Asians due to its regal status and long term value.
However as the world constantly changes, so do the trends in fashion and styling. A Kyles Collection we have witnessed a notable shift over the last 15 years. Indians, Pakistanis and other South Asians have been moving away from traditional gold jewellery, for many different reasons.
Why has gold lost its appeal?
We have noticed, especially in the UK, that women don't feel pressured to show off their wealth status by being adorned with gold jewellery on their wedding day. More of the wedding budget is being spent on the venue, the catering and the entertainment.
The Changing trends of fashion
Women are heavily influenced by social media these days and fashion has been fused by different cultures from around the world. Women like co-ordinated looks to match their wedding day outfits, décor theme and so forth, for a cohesive perfect match. Gold cannot be customised in terms of colour like our own custom Asian jewellery. Kyles have a choice of 100 genuine Swarovski crystals and offer another six plating finishes in all of the jewellery.
Unfortunately, in recent years, there has been many robberies and thefts of people’s houses in the UK. Cash and gold are major targets by criminals which are assets predominantly owned by South Asians. The consequences are that gold has been stored in secure banks which means they do not get worn as originally intended leading to a search for alternative fashion jewellery accessories.
Offering hundreds of jewellery sets influenced by Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi culture. Kyles add their own creative twist by using higher quality western metal and Swarovski crystals for a premium product all hand made in London. We also boast that our designers can create the perfect matching jewellery to any outfit. Styling customers for various South Asian occasions like weddings, Mehndi occasions civil receptions Walima’s and so forth.
In summary we still believe gold has its value and offers some place in Asian heritage however due to recent trends, the modern Asian woman is looking for accessories that compliment her outfits much better and that’s where our unique jewellery fits perfectly!

Nickel Jewellery Allergy, Stay Safe
Jewellery allergy can be a common cause of contact allergic dermatitis. Most jewellery allergies are caused by the metal nickel which is used in the manufacture of metal alloys. In less expensive jewellery, nickel is often used in the base metal which is the reason it can cause all types of irritations.
Also in the plating process of gold or silver nickel can also be used to coat the jewellery.
However our hand made jewellery is completely nickel free from the base tin alloy and the entire plating process, so you can feel safe wearing our designer jewellery.
We have hundreds of jewellery accessories online and instores to suit all types of occasions like weddings, engagements along with general events like evening parties and any types of festive occasions.
If you have any queries regarding the manufacturing of our items, get in touch with our team in London and we'd be happy to help answer any of your questions or concerns.
