With the sun finally in the sky and the sweet, sweet sound of sandals flip flopping away as we walk proudly in our newest skirts and shades, it is definitely starting to feel more like matrimonial season - and so it should! The sun makes everything better, especially when it is the backdrop for precious wedding photos! We’re excited for the months of wedding bliss to finally get a summery kick-start, but first, the all important essentials are needed to ensure your wedding is completed to precision detail. From beautiful decor, statement centrepieces and elegant bridal jewellery to, of course, the very important wedding rings, planning a wedding can be a little overwhelming. However you needn’t worry as, here at Ernest Jones, we have a selection of jewellery, watches and a Pinterest board full of inspiration for all your bridal needs to ensure your wedding day goes without a hitch!
Once the essential dress and rings have been ordered ready to wear on your big day, the task of buying gifts for the bridal party soon becomes the next hurdle. With bridesmaids, parents and the Groom to buy for, choosing gifts that suit individual tastes as well as marking your wedding day with a special thank you can be made simple with Ernest Jones.
A great way to narrow your choice down is to carry your theme through to inspire your gift buys. Vintage weddings are a firm favourite amongst brides-to-be this season. With teacups filled with candles for table decoration, classic bunting and elegant twenties inspired head pieces, timeless gifts with a touch of elegant, vintage allure are perfect for transforming your theme into beautiful matrimonial keepsakes.
For a truly special gift for the Groom, why not choose a luxury timepiece to mark your special day. This effortlessly timeless two-tone bracelet watch from Longines exudes vintage design and wouldn’t look a foot out of place if transported back to the 1920’s. With a simple white face and the elegant rose-gold detailing, this beautiful Swiss timepiece is the ideal way to mark your special day and is sure to keep time on those Charleston moves at the reception!
With the maid of honour being responsible for the all important hen do and most likely to be your sister or best friend, a special gift to say thank you is essential. This ornate amethyst heart pendant from esteemed jewellery designer Badgely Mischka is a delicate gift which can be worn to add a dash of sparkle and elegance to her favourite evening outfit. This beautiful pendant is available in a variety of precious stones, so whether your bridesmaids amaze in amethyst or charm in champagne, a personalised touch for your maid of honour could be to gift her with a pendant that matches her dress.
The bridesmaids share the most memorable moments with you and deserve a beautiful gift. However, catering for all of your bridesmaids, especially if they are all different ages, can be difficult. Why not show your appreciation with a timeless piece of jewellery such as a gorgeous heart pendant. This delicate heart pendant embellished with a sparkling cubic zirconia would make for the ideal gift for any younger bridesmaids. Alternatively, give the gift of Swarovski with this contemporary cut out heart pendant.
For an elegant gift for the bride, why not choose a watch? This feminine and contemporary watch from Ebel boasts a diamond embellished bezel which frames the subtle mother of pearl face perfectly. The sleek stainless steel bracelet makes for a sophisticated watch that can be worn from day to night. For an extra special touch, why not add some delicate engraved words to the back casing of the watch or the side of the bezel. Initials of the Bride and Groom with the date of your special day make for a charming dash of personalisation.
