Picking your wedding dress is only the beginning. With engagement parties, bridal showers, hen weekends and rehearsal dinners all leading up to the main event, your sartorial decisions don’t begin and end at the wedding night alone. With so much to think about, we’re here to help. The best way to approach shopping for your bridal festivities is finding ways to incorporate forever pieces that will stand the test of time well beyond the “I do.”
For most brides, jewelry is the last thing on their minds when planning their wedding wardrobe — I’ve got the engagement ring, isn’t that enough? — often throwing on an heirloom piece at the last minute. Though finding a dress with the “wow” factor paired with elegant (and comfortable) wedding shoes may feel like the priority, there’s something undeniably special about a piece of jewelry to tie the whole look together.
From unconventional wedding bands to the lucky love charm necklace for your honeymoon, we’ve rounded up some wedding jewelry you’re sure to love — and wear forever.
A party to kick off the wedding festivities! This will be the first time close friends and family of the bride and groom get together to celebrate the couple. How about a nod to new love with a Small Cuore Pendant? Pair it with a classic Rollo Chain for the complete look; it’s a minimal enough set for everyday that you’ll want to wear over and over again to remind you of this special day.
Forget cheesy goodie bags and wasteful bachelorette paraphernalia and say thank you to your bridesmaids with FORTE Beads. Customize the cord and hardware according to each bridesmaid and it’ll be a gift they’ll treasure forever. Or, work together on creating your own bracelets and necklaces around the table at the party, inviting your closest friends to bead their own with FORTE Beads Multi Kits.
Whether you’re doing a small dinner with family or inviting the bridal party and the groomsmen for a slightly bigger to-do, keep it simple with a stack of K.I.S.S. bracelets. Remember this: less is more when it comes to the night before your wedding. You don’t want to outshine yourself before your big night!
The “I Do”
For your wedding day, opt for something unique and unconventional. A Florentine Ring fit for a true fashion bride. From yellow gold to pink gold and even a black gold–or how about a mix & match stack to celebrate each anniversary? Each piece is made by hand for that one of a kind look. It’s simple and uncomplicated, yet a special piece for the most important day of your life.
A Disco Reception
For the after party, change into a pair of Carolina Bucci signature Florentine Finish Hoops. Perfect for pairing with a mini fringe dress to get your dance on, and a classic staple to add to your jewelry box for a fun night out.
The Farewell Brunch
Add “something blue” to your wedding weekend with the 1885 Links Lucky Bracelet. An elegant compliment to any white frock, this hand braided turquoise piece adorned with two bee charms will remind you of the magical weekend everytime you wear it. Designed to be tied on, double knot the bracelet and make a wish on your first day as husband and wife.
Whether you’re headed to the Amalfi coast or on a safari, a Lucky Necklace with Love Charm will add a romantic touch to your honeymoon wardrobe. Best of all? It moonlights as a wrap bracelet for added versatility. Two-in-one? Sign us up.
