A Bride’s Guide: Mastering the Details

Spring is here and your summer wedding is just around the corner! You’ve mastered the art of invitations, menu planning, cocktail etiquette, and floral selection; now all that is left to accomplish is the ever-so-daunting seating arrangement along with a long list of last minute details. Not sure what you’re gifting your bridesmaids or what you’ll do for something blue? Not to worry, we’ve got accessorizing and sincere gifting down to a science and collected our favorites to inspire you on what to wear and what to give before walking down the aisle.

Bridal Shower – Thank your guests with the gift of (+) energy! If you’re a classic bride, Alex and Ani votive candles are the ideal favor. Guests will praise you for the illuminating gift that ignites an awakening aroma into their home and uplifts their spirit. Alternatively, a modern bride may prefer to gift Illumination Wine Charms. For the toast, adorn glasses with our Illumination or Spiritual Journey Wine Charms and invite your friends and family to take theirs home. Every time they use the charm they will remember your special day!

Rehearsal Dinner – Generally less formal than other wedding festivities, the rehearsal dinner is a great time to express your personal sense of style. Free of wardrobe regulations, it is the night that everyone can dazzle without raising eyebrows and simply enjoy. Whether you wear a LBD or sequin sheath, have fun by layering on the sparkle with a stunning stack of crystal bangles and wraps.

Bridesmaids – Consider this a PSA for all brides-to-be. There’s a reason we call your entourage brides-maids! For months, these ladies have been at your beck and call for better or for worse. They’ve tirelessly offered insight and enthusiasm, provided support and managed a plethora of emotions that the stress of wedding planning has bestowed on you. By the time the wedding day arrives your girls will deserve some serious thanks. We suggest showing your appreciation with a personalized stack of bangles that they can wear on the day of your wedding and beyond! Try pairing Sister, Like a Sister or Whole Heart with color and metal beaded bangles.

Something Blue – The color blue has long been worn during weddings to represent faithfulness, loyalty and purity in the union. Modern brides have fun honoring this tradition both on the day of their wedding and also during the months leading up to it. Blue shoes, undergarments, jewelry and nail polish have become popular with brides as they celebrate throughout the course of their engagement. We love mixing metal beaded bangles with shades of blue for every day while also crafting a meaningful set with blue crystal  bangles and sincere pieces from our Precious Metal Collection for the special day.
