Many brides don’t think about their bridal jewelry until long after other wedding details are tackled—but proper bridal jewelry is just as important as the wedding dress itself! Here are four bridal jewelry ideas to consider for your big day.
The best styles for bridal jewelry are those that are both elegant and feminine and drop earrings provide both. Oftentimes, brides feel constrained to choosing jewelry for their big day by the same practical considerations as they would for everyday jewelry. But remember, you won’t be going to work in these jewels; you’ll be walking down the aisle! That means that styles that might not be practical for other occasions are back on the menu. Drop earrings are also a good choice because they work well with having your hair up or pulled back, which is a popular style, and they’ll be visible to everyone even at a large ceremony.
Pearls are a classic bridal jewelry choice and for a good reason. With their white sheen, they fit naturally with any wedding style you can dream up, and they have a long history as one of the most feminine gems you can choose. Pearls have an added advantage for the savvy bride however—they deliver the beauty of real jewels without the higher cost of sapphires or other precious gems. For a truly stunning look, consider multi-strand pearl bracelets and clusters of pearls on accessories.
When people think of bridal jewelry, they all too often forget about the brooch. A brooch is a versatile piece which should be the cornerstone of any bridal party. If you’re choosing not to have a full ensemble of matching bridal jewelry for all the bride’s attendants, having a simple brooch is an easy way to mark out the bridesmaids and give them something special to remember your day by. Unlike a necklace, brooches work with virtually any dress, hairstyle, and body shape. And no matter what your plans for the bridesmaids, a special brooch is an elegant choice for the mother of the bride.
No matter what your choice of gems for your bridal jewelry, cubic zirconia gives you the twinkle of diamonds without the price tags. Many fantastic bridal jewelry sets include zirconia set against pearl, sapphire, or amethyst.
What’s on your bridal jewelry wish list?August 7, 2014
The end of summer means that fall is just around the corner. While the cooler weather is impending, there is still plenty to look forward to this fall including autumn weddings. Did you know that October is one of the most popular months for weddings? From crisp autumn leaves to pumpkin decorations and more fall favorites, what’s there not to love about a fall wedding? Here are the top five fall wedding trends you need to look out for in 2014.
Metallic Colors. As the summer wedding season ends and enters into the fall, you’ll be seeing less pinks, yellows, and bright colors and more metallic hues. Gold and copper are expected to be especially popular this season. Expect to see many bridesmaids in gold and copper gowns with silver jewelry. You’ll also see metallic colors in decorations – silver spray-painted pumpkins lined with gold candles and autumn leaves will be among the most common center piece items.
Blinged-Out Veils. Brides are beginning to move away from fancy wedding dresses in order to focus more on making a statement with their veils. Many brides are choosing to bling out their wedding vials with rhinestones and pearls. Long Cathedral wedding veils are also beginning to make a comeback, which are commonly lines with lace flowers and other unique designs.
Peacock Feathers. Bridesmaids will also be turning heads with unique and interesting hair accessories, such as peacock feathers. You can also expect to see them tied into flower bouquets and in center pieces, along with pumpkins or even as decoration on the wedding cake. Some couples will opt to feature them more subtly with their wedding invention designs.
Statement Necklaces. Many wives-to-be will choose to stick to the tradition of wearing a strand of pearls around their neck when it comes to bridal jewelry. However, these pearls will be upgraded to make a bigger statement than your grandmother’s pearls ever would have made. Statement necklaces featuring a combination of pearls and rhinestones will be another popular option.
Burlap. You rarely hear people talk about the ring pillow or wedding basket at a wedding. However, that’s all about to change as burlap becomes popular as a rustic decoration with both ring pillows and wedding baskets. Burlap helps to bring the feel of fall to any wedding. You’ll likely see these pillows and baskets lined with lace to give them more of a feminine touch.
This fall it will be less about the dresses and more about the smaller details when it comes to weddings. Brides are becoming bolder than ever when it comes to their choice in accessories and decorations. Whether you’re part of the wedding party or attending as a guest, you’ll be guaranteed to see some of these hottest wedding trends this upcoming season.August 1, 2014
