For most of us, the day we get married remains one of the most unforgettable moments of our lives. That is true for both men and women, but honestly, the big day belongs to the bride. If you are one of these brides, you already know how much work goes into planning your dream wedding – from picking the perfect dress, hopping around town for cake sampling to looking for the perfect florist.
Luckily, most brides have a fantastic support team in their bridal party beside them. By the time you get to the day of the wedding, your bridesmaids have probably seen you cry and laugh in both joy and frustration. They have invested with you to make your day special and are a big part of it coming together. To thank them, you may decide to gift each with an elegant piece of jewelry to be worn during the day and even after.
Planning a dream wedding is not easy by any stretch of the imagination. Emotionally and financially, it is a rollercoaster. After scrimping, saving, and cutting corners to bring the whole wedding together, you may feel you don’t have the budget to buy jewelry. However, it would be a mistake to buy cheap costume jewelry to cut costs for your bridal party expenses.
With that said, you can still get good quality pieces at affordable prices. The trick is to opt for jewelry wholesale suppliers rather than buying single pieces. Buying in bulk will reduce the overall cost while still allowing you to purchase great quality. The best thing about this is you can get a variety of pieces as well. If you opt to shop online, you won’t even have to spend too much time moving through stores looking for pieces.
The bridal party is made up of the bride’s closest friends. These are the people you’ve laughed with and cried with. You know them, and they know you better than most other people. It would not make sense then to buy a generic piece for everyone in your bridal party. Each bridesmaid has her own unique personality that you should consider when selecting a piece.
That is a delicate balance as you’ll want to gift jewelry that will work with the wedding theme and be worn years down the line. One way to make this gift personal is to choose a piece with the recipient’s birthstone gem. Alternatively, you can choose a piece with qualities representing your relationship, such as an infinity bracelet, to symbolize how long your friendship will last. If you’re genuinely unsure of what someone would like, go with the tried and tested route of buying what you would like to be gifted.
Harmonize with the Bridesmaid’s Dresses
Accessorising bridal party dresses can be difficult for most people. Most brides choose to specify both the length and color of accessories that their bridesmaids wear. This can stress bridesmaids who may be forced to go out of their way to look for specific pieces. By gifting your bridal party jewelry, you can avoid this.
Even while picking pieces unique to individuals, make sure you keep the wedding theme in mind. Additionally, if the dresses are cut differently, keep this in mind while choosing jewelry. You wouldn’t want to buy chunky necklaces for dresses with ruffles as this could make the outfit chaotic. Remember, the point of accessories is to accentuate and complement the dresses.
Share the Love
Your bridal party is part of your chosen family. They’ve decided to share in your happiness as you walk down the aisle. A small, thoughtful gift of jewelry could show them just how much you appreciate them. It’s worth the investment and lasting memories.
