Finding Your Dream Dress: What’s Your Bridal Style?

February 27th, 2015

Planning a wedding can be one of the best experiences of a woman’s life. And, of course, finding the perfect dress is perhaps the most exciting part of planning your big day. Now, you may be the type of bride who knows exactly what she wants, and, if so, good for you! But, for the rest of us, all those options can be a bit overwhelming. With all the designers, styles, colors and details, how are we supposed to choose just one? Well, thankfully, narrowing down your choices doesn’t have to be so mind-boggling. Keep reading for tips on figuring out your bridal style, and choosing the dress that will suit you perfectly.

Classic

Is Audrey Hepburn your style icon? Does your everyday wardrobe include clean lines and understated chicness? If classic beauty is your thing, your bridal style could be best described as simple and elegant. A few great classic wedding looks include pretty A-line frocks, strapless column gowns and styles with full skirts and fitted bodices. Also, tea-length gowns are great for classic brides, as they definitely give off a traditional vibe, while still managing to look fresh and modern. And when it coms to hair and accessories, a classic bride can’t go wrong with a strand of pearls and a chic updo.

Romantic

Do you love romance novels, mushy movies and love songs? If so, a romantic bridal style may be perfect for you. For the best in romantic bridal style, go for flowing silhouettes, lace overlays, ruffles and other ultra-feminine details. For example, the Essense of Australia from Essence Designs collection features the intricate beadwork and stunning lace details that perfectly compliment a romance-inspired bridal style. When it comes to accessories, pair a romantic, ladylike gown with a flowered hairpiece (think flower crowns or headbands) and vintage-inspired jewelry.

High-Fashion

If you turn to the pages of Vogue for your style inspiration, you might just be confident enough to rock a high-fashion gown. Definitely not for everyone, couture dresses have a little more flair than your average bride can handle; but, if you’re not afraid to turn heads, you should look for a dress with lots of structure and dramatic lines. And, since couture dresses can be pretty dramatic, keep hair and makeup understated; a sleek bun and simple jewelry will do the trick.

Nontraditional

Do you play by your own fashion rules? Can your style be described as funky or eclectic? If so, you might be a nontraditional bride. And you know something? That’s okay. There’s no rule that every bride has to wear a traditional wedding gown. In fact, your wedding is the perfect opportunity to showcase your uniqueness, so don’t be afraid to drape yourself in a less-than-classic dress, a pantsuit or whatever you feel like wearing. Go all out. This is your day.

Vintage

If you love browsing the racks at your local thrift and consignment stores, a vintage bridal style might be your best bet. For a true vintage look, try off-white shades (cream, champagne and even pale yellow) with lace and beadwork. Top off your look with a wavy chignon, complete with jeweled hairpins and a short lace veil. Or, for a sizzling “Old Hollywood” vibe, opt for a curve-hugging satin gown and dramatic jewelry. And when it comes to hair, this look pairs perfectly with long, loose waves and a deep side part.

 

Now that you’ve figured out your bridal style, you’re one step closer to finding the dress of your dreams. Good luck!

The top 5 wedding rings for 2015

February 17th, 2015

Springtime is just around the corner and nothing inspires proposals more than the wedding season. Proposals mean ring purchases, so the hunt begins. Many styles never go out of fashion, but some find a resurgence in popularity at times. We’ve come up with the top 5 wedding rings for 2015 for your convenience.

Diamond Cluster Rings are a perfect choice for someone who is on a strict budget. Clusters or “Pavé” diamonds are a group of smaller diamonds that weigh the same as a single stone, but cost significantly less. You have the option of a much larger ring and good quality, yet smaller diamonds. Cluster settings look fabulous in platinum, gold, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. The sparkle is exquisite and the look is impressive.

Gemstone Rings are a perfect way to stand out from the crowd. Sapphires, Emeralds, and Rubies are all precious stones and make a beautiful alternative to the traditional diamond. Morganite (sometimes referred to ‘pink emerald’) has become very popular as of late. The soft pink stone is a variety of beryl. Morganite is the pink stone of love. It is said to carry energy that can warm the wearer’s soul. Morganite is limited in availability, making it rather expensive. Gemstone rings are definitely one of the top 5 wedding rings for 2015.

 

Fancy Diamond Shape Cuts like cushion, emerald, and Asscher, have become increasingly popular. Cuts that were more popular in the 19th and early 20th century are now in demand. A cushion cut is rising above the princess cut which has been popular for years. The cushion cut has a soft shape with curved sides gives it a timeless feel. The emerald and Asscher cut diamond have a faceted pattern that is quite distinct lending itself to dynamic light and dark planes in the stone. The Asscher cut is similar to an emerald but in a square shape. The cut emphasizes brilliance and clarity. An emerald cut is a rectangle shape with a step cut pattern. The cut creates light and dark planes that are very reflective. Less brilliant than an Asscher or Princess cut but very elegant. With the beauty of a Fancy Diamond Shape we couldn’t help but add it to our top 5 wedding rings of 2015.

Rose Gold Engagement Rings have become the hot new metal for engagements rings this season. The copper hue offers a luxurious warmth set next to a vibrant diamond or rich ruby. To get the rose gold color, pure gold and copper are mixed with a bit of silver to get the perfect rose color. The contrast of diamonds against the rose gold offers stunning results. Rose gold was very popular in Russia in the 19th century and was called Russian Gold at the time. The 21st century has seen a resurgence of rose gold and many couples are choosing it for their engagement and wedding bands.

Halo Engagement Rings have been a favorite for some time, but the popularity doesn’t seem to be losing steam anytime soon. The Halo is yet another contender for the top 5 wedding rings for 2015. Not only does it have a glamorous sparkle, it is the perfect mix of modern and vintage. The halo setting allows for a more economical purchase. Carat weight is maximized by the smaller halo diamonds around the main diamond, giving the illusion of a much bigger ring. The smaller center stone allows for a better quality stone. The halo setting also looks great with any center stone cut. Whether it is Princess, round, oval, your setting will look spectacular.

Online jewellery stores like Laings of Glasgow present and alluring and contemporary collection of wedding rings to choose from. So, what more you want! Select a wedding ring and spellbind your soul mate forever.
