Often, it is the little things that make an outfit, so it is no surprise that brides and grooms are focusing on extra additions to their outfits for their big day. Companies are recognising this trend, and are creating and stocking jewellery and accessories fit for royalty for the wedding season. Chapelle jewellery has spent over three decades supplying the UK with stunning jewellery at a fraction of high street prices by offering at least 30% off the RRP year-round throughout its stores and on its website. It ensures that it is not only providing high quality pieces that are affordable, but bang on trend too, and its vast offering for the wedding season is nothing short of exceptional.
Bridal designers often take inspiration from vintage styles and this year is all about 50’s fashion, with lots of lace and prom style dresses. Reach ultimate 50’s glam by wearing pearls, for which a cultured pearl necklace is ideal. If you want to bring in modern trends, why not try a pearl choker for an edgy look? Multi layering necklaces is also on trend right now, which will really bring out the 50’s glam you’re looking for.
Add a bit of colour to your day by wearing a beautiful coloured stone. You know the rhyme: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Make that something blue a gorgeous sapphire. Interesting coloured stones makes it easy to add colour to your wedding outfit, and you can match it to your colour scheme, too, if blue is not your thing.
The stacked trend has been gaining momentum for the past few years. Multiple rings stacked together can be a very elegant and stylish way to display engagement and wedding rings. This is where the gemstones either interlock with each other, or are slightly offset to one another rather than straight in the middle of the fingers, to bring the bands closer together.
Rose gold – or blush gold – is an alloy of gold and copper. This gives a beautiful colour to create unique jewellery which differs from tradition. Rose gold jewellery has been around since the 1800s and is a timeless classic. It has been very popular recently, but is only this year being worn by many brides on their wedding day. Break from tradition by adding in a delicate piece of rose gold jewellery to give your outfit a modern twist.
Big, bold earrings are on trend this year. Statement earrings can add detail and texture to a simple wedding dress. More and more brides are opting out from wearing a veil, with bold earrings and headpieces taking centre stage instead. Smaller earrings can still make a statement, particularly if you combine them with other trends like rose gold, or coloured stones.
Adding simple pieces of jewellery to your wedding dress can really help to make your beautiful dress stand out. Delicate pieces bring an air of modern minimalism which is bang on trend this year, and has been inspiring jewellers all over the world. These pieces will also enable you to wear them time and time again after your wedding day, and will be a pretty reminder of your special day for many years to come. Dainty, delicate pieces work well with simple flowing wedding dresses, adding a simple elegance.
Wedding Jewellery for the Groom
Jewellery for brides has always been important, but in recent years grooms have been paying more attention to their jewellery. The main elements of the groom’s jewellery has been sharp features, with gold, silver or steel. Watches and cufflinks are an easy way to add some extra dimension to a groom’s look without straying too far from tradition.
Saying thank you to those that have shared your special day is a particularly nice touch, and has long been a tradition to celebrate them throughout the speeches. From bridesmaids to flower girls, page boys to groomsmen, treat them to a keepsake they will cherish forever, like a locket, charm bracelet or smart cufflinks.
