Make all of your wedding party feel special with the right accessory…
February 26, 2020
Bridesmaids and mothers of the bride are often heavily involved in helping the bride to choose her dress and accessories for the big day. So why not turn the tables and choose an item for them to show how much you appreciate all of their efforts that they can wear on the wedding day too. But what jewellery will look best with their outfits? It needs to be special enough for such a special day, as well as making just the right kind of statement. Here is our guide to selecting a piece of jewellery for every member of your wedding party…
Mother of the Bride
A daughter treating her mum to a beautiful piece of jewellery on the day of a wedding is a beautiful gesture. Not only will it make the mother of the bride feel amazing, but she will also have something to wear, enjoy and treasure for years to come. Perhaps the lucky daughters may also find such this treasure in their own jewellery box one day! Our very own real-life bride Stephanie chose these beautiful earrings for her mum and they were a big hit on the day.
Choosing a beautiful pair of stud earrings or a pretty bracelet for your bridesmaids that not only ties in with your wedding theme but will forever be a reminder that they played a huge part on your special day, is a great idea. This shows your bridesmaids that they are indeed part of your bridal party, and that you have taken their own tastes into consideration with this gift. When choosing a gift like this it is a good rule of thumb to follow the rule that the wearer should be able to enjoy wearing it more than once, not just on the wedding day. We think the Anastasia Bracelet is a great choice, both glamorous and versatile.
Being chosen as a flower girl is something a little girl remembers for the rest of her life, what little lady doesn't enjoy dressing up, feeling grown-up and being part of something very special. Surprise your own flower girl with a pretty little trinket that will always be part of her wedding memories. Whether you choose a stone in her favourite colour, her name or her favourite animal (safe bets are the teddy bear, duck, bunny and cat) and it is delicate and subtle enough to complement her flower girl ensemble beautifully, you can’t go wrong.
You cannot overlook the groom when it comes to wedding accessories. Many men can be put off by the idea of wearing jewellery and the fact they are acquiring a ring to wear on their wedding day, maybe taking them to their comfort limit! But you cannot go wrong with cufflinks. They are a fabulous gift for the bride to give the groom and as well as being worn on the wedding day, he can wear them at other functions or even the office, to remind him of the best day of his life. If your groom has a laid back nature he may be open to the idea of novelty cufflinks with the word groom on them, this idea can then be copied by other members of the wedding party with captions such as ‘best man’ and ‘father of the bride’. If you want something more elaborate, then diamonds don't have to be just reserved for brides.
With all of this inspiration, we have no doubts that you will choose the right gift for each member of your bridal party, but we are always happy to help and advise on jewellery selection.
No matter what your own personal style, we know that you will find something in the Jules Bridal Jewellery collection to suit you. We have a wide selection from bracelets to headpieces, to compliment your wedding day ensemble as well as those of your bridal party.
Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines for 2020 so far...
Our delicate Gold Leaf and Freshwater Pearl Headpiece, made from individual gold leaves blended with freshwater pearls and tiny diamante crystals for a little sparkle.
The Gold Vine is a light and flexible headpiece that can be worn to the side, back or across the top of the head. It is simply attached with tiny alligator style clips hidden beneath the piece.
Whatever your mood, style, outfit or budget, there are statement earrings out there that make you happy the moment you put them on. We remember the earrings we wore on first dates and on special occasions and, let’s be honest, we can always find an excuse to treat ourselves to a new pair! When it comes to your wedding earrings, the stakes are a little higher but don’t worry, we’re here today with our top tips to help you choose the perfect pair…
You’ll be wearing your statement earrings all say so not only do they need to be beautiful they need to be practical too. If you don’t often wear long drop earrings it might be a good idea to wear your earrings at home behind closed doors for a few days to be sure you get on with them.
Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Don’t forget that your whole outfit should be balanced, if you want to wear a glamorous pair of statement earrings, don’t rush to wear lots of other accessories, alternatively if you opt for subtle wedding earrings you can then choose to wear lots of other pieces too, our Alisha, Freshwater Pearl Silver Earrings are perfect for this.
Pearls are very often a popular wedding day gift for a bride, but why are pearls associated with weddings, you may be thinking!
Thanks to their fabulous shimmering iridescence, these organic little gems have always been highly prized throughout history, in fact, Cleopatra is said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine before drinking it, simply to show Marc Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire country in just one meal, and the ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and marital harmony. During the crusades knights wore pearls on the battlefield, believing they held magic powers that would protect them from harm. In the 1500s pearls were so highly regarded that countries across Europe passed laws forbidding anyone apart from nobility to wear them. And even to this day, they are still a popular choice for royalty, especially at weddings. Queen Elizabeth II wore them at her wedding and over in the USA, Jacqueline Bouvier wore a strand the day she became Mrs Kennedy, which was almost royalty.
