Many brides are realizing that just because your friends are all in your wedding party, it doesn’t mean they all need to match on your big day. This is a significant departure from the days of completely coordinated bridesmaids. Your bridal party no longer needs to wear the exact same dress (maybe just the same color), which means the jewelry can also be more suited to their individual style.
A bridesmaid might even consider suggesting this to the bride just to take some of the work off of her plate. Everyone could pick their own accessories (within reason of course) and save her a little bit of stress during her busy planning.
After seasons of yellow gold jewelry ruling the accessories world, there has been a shift toward silver for 2021. With major fashion houses already featuring silver on their runways, people are noticing it in everything from chain link necklaces, thick cuff bracelets, delicate charms, and more.
Silver is subtle and classic, and can take you back to jewelry created decades ago. Now that it has once again gained the favor of jewelry designers, you will able to embrace it and see new and exciting items coming to retailers near you soon.
The pandemic has changed life as we know it. Weddings specifically have been greatly impacted as COVID-19 rules and restrictions are changing the face of wedding culture. Whether your 2021 summer wedding is your first attempt at your nuptials or your 5th shot at holding your dream ceremony, a few tips just might help you pull it off. Making it through this journey will require preparedness, following the news, and maintaining an open conversation with your vendors and guests.
Remember that it’s okay to feel all of the emotions that are constantly coming at you. Just keep your eye on the prize (your wonderful wedding day), know that your day WILL happen, and that it will be all you hoped it would be.
Choosing the metal that will last a lifetime for your engagement and wedding ring is not just about picking yellow or white anymore. There is a whole range of possibilities; and questions regarding favorite styles and durability should be addressed before saying “I Do” to a metal preference.
It’s easy to overlook, but just like so many other things in life, your jewelry needs a little TLC to stay in perfect condition. Your pieces need regular maintenance and check ups to stay in tip-top shape.
Life is busy and it’s easy to put your routine jewelry inspections on the backburner, but there could be hundreds or thousands (think dollars!) of reasons to not let this simple task slip by the wayside.
As more couples are choosing a unique, custom, or even colored gemstone engagement ring, you might wonder how diamonds originally became synonymous with dropping to one knee. Even more interesting is that today’s symbol of love and a lifetime of happiness together started out as nothing more than a mark of ownership in ancient times.
The best way to distract yourself during a long, cold winter is with visions of a warm and sunny spring. There is no better way to daydream the snow away than by picturing tropical vacations along with all the fun fashion and accessories that will accompany you on a trip – whether it’s real or just in your fantasies for now.
What is even better is that 2021 has the perfect spring trend to get you in this mindset – colorful, beaded necklaces. Think DIY camp necklaces you used to make but with a chic twist!
2020 was a whirlwind of emotions, challenges and more, but for brides all over the world, it was just the beginning of a great adventure. And rest assured, the global pandemic did not stop couples from committing the ultimate act of love. In fact, some say it brought people even closer together. With luck, this year will bring the same joy to those who found their one and only amongst the turmoil.
