Bridal Jewelry For Him

July 6th, 2013

Wedding planning encompasses everything from the right dress and bridesmaids gowns to the table linens and dessert bar. With so many details to consider, sometimes the groom gets put on the back burner. He becomes another check mark on a list of To-Dos rather than the centre piece that makes him special. After all, you can’t have a wedding with just one participant. Grooms play an equally important part in the ceremony, but sometimes other details supersede the poor guy’s position, leaving many a groom to simply show up on his special day wearing a tux he didn’t choose and eating food he hasn’t approved. Most men take it in stride. They want to appease the bride’s crazy requests and get to the more important benefits of newlywed bliss. Still, it would be nice if the wedding plans could honor the men in a special way. Jewellery helps achieve this.

The phrase “bridal jewelry” might bring to mind tiaras and necklaces, but men also need special bling to celebrate the day. Wrist watches, cufflinks and pocket watches are all unique masculine jewellery that add flair and personality to a groom’s attire. The following are also good ideas for grooms & groomsmen.

Rings, earrings and necklaces

Canes and other vintage accessories

Embroidered pocket handkerchiefs and scarves

Some guys might find the idea of wearing earrings too feminine, but many men do wear them, and the style they wear on their special day reflects the overall theme of the wedding. Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but men can also rock a diamond stud if they’re used to wearing earrings on a regular basis. Necklaces, though also typically feminine, can be tailored for a man’s tastes.

Brides spend a lot of time and effort to make sure they give great bridesmaids gifts. Likewise, grooms should put some thought into gifts for their groomsmen. Customized flasks, engraved leather watches and other practical accessories show that a groom cares about his best men. Men don’t often indulge in superfluous accessories, but a watch is as special as it is practical. Investing in masculine accessories will yield great results.

The most important thing to consider when buying men’s jewelry is personalization. Men appreciate being special just as much as their blushing brides. Embroidering a pocket handkerchief with his initials turns an ordinary accessory into a special keepsake. Engraving a vintage accessory like a pocket watch offers the bride the chance to tell her future husband how important he is to her. The wedding band itself can be customized with special messages, inside jokes or simply initials. Just as a pearl necklace handed down through the generations makes a bride feel honored, a customized piece of jewellery will make a groom feel valued and important on his special day.
