If you drop one of your pricy earrings during the hustle of your wedding, it may cost you like an arm and leg. To keep the real pricy earrings secured to the ears, ear piercing is preferable. If you are to wear fake clip on earrings, you may not pierce the ears. But then you will miss the joy of wearing your beautiful diamond earrings on the very special day of your life.
If you are a funky and trendy bride, you can have even more piercings, like on nose, lips, tongue, navel and fingers. But these are not essential for wearing wedding jewelry. You can keep these body parts without jewelry on your wedding.
