One of the most important parts of planning and designing a wedding day is the selection of the jewelry. Not only for the bride but for the bridesmaids as well. Costume jewelry can usually be utilized and the lesser prices are always welcomed. Since all weddings are unique with no two being very much alike, the selection of jewelry will be of a personal choice. A choice that will blend well with the overall theme of the wedding day and ceremony. There are a lot of things to be considered along with the choice of wedding day jewelry such as hats, tiaras, veils, handbags and gloves.
Perhaps the most remembered of all tiaras was worn by Princess Di. Is a tiara a requirement of a wedding? Well no, it isn’t but it is certainly one of the more popular accessories that brides all over western civilization opt for. Handbags for the occasion are often a practical part of any wedding ensemble. Veils are traditional and there are many styles to choose from. How many grooms have had to lift a veil from their new wife’s face in order to get that first kiss? Uncountable numbers, I’m sure, which shows the popularity of having traditional wedding accessories even when the entire theme is non traditional.
Wedding hats are big. Many brides want to wear a hat but more often we will see the bridesmaids wearing them. Often the family members, usually the mothers, who are not part of the procession will want to have a matching hat. It helps to display their relation to the bride and groom as well as lending a very festive look to the entire day. Wedding hats have been an important part of wedding day planning for a very long time and will no doubt remain important in the years ahead.
Gloves are also something that brides often wear. Some like the idea of the covered and clean look while other times they just fit the theme and design of the wedding gown well. Bridesmaids will often wear gloves when colors match the outfit and help to complete a look. There are many choices with gloves. Often glove sizes are called by the number of buttons they have. Opera length gloves will have 16 buttons. Over the elbow gloves will have 12 buttons. Gloves extending up to the elbow will have eight buttons. There are also wrist length gloves. Satin gloves are the most popular as they really add an elegant look to any wedding gown style. Many gloves are partially made with an elastic material so that they are stretchy, and this also helps to keep them smooth looking and not wrinkled. Gloves without fingers are also popular, and practical as well when it comes time to put the ring on, or eat the cake.
Brides will often have ideas that come from things they have seen at other weddings, in magazines or just have as their own dream wedding day. Jewelry retailers will have a complete selection of wedding day jewelry and costume jewelry to meet your needs. Shopping through these shops will allow your dreams to turn to reality by choosing exactly what you want and what will be stylish and blend with the theme of your unique wedding day.
