Wedding Band Trends

Wedding Band Trends

Purchasing wedding bands? We think that the best thing to decide on is bands that are unique to you and your fiancé, matching your individual styles and tastes. Here are some of our favorite trends in current wedding bands.

Eternity Bands:

Many brides today love the idea of having diamonds on both their engagement ring and on their wedding bands. Eternity bands are a beautiful way to compliment your engagement ring.

Stacked Wedding Rings:

This trend is a wonderful way to create a ring that is entirely your own. Stacking 2 or three rings can be a beautiful alternative to the traditional single band. Also, starting with one and adding more bands later creates a built-in anniversary gift for the years to come.

Engraving:

Engraving makes every ring a touch more personal, with a message inscribed on the inside of the band. Here at WeddingBands.com, we offer free engraving!

Colored Stones:

We love the idea of including colored stones in wedding bands. From sapphires to rubies, there are a plethora of options.

We also love the idea of combining a few of these trends together! The most important thing is that you love your ring, and will love wearing it everyday! The selection is vast, and possibilities are endless, so find a band that is the perfect representation of your love for each other.

Wedding Invitation Ideas

Wedding Invitation Ideas

Summer is finally here, and there is no better time for planning a wedding! One of the first steps is deciding a date and getting your invitations sent out. We have some great ideas for creating beautiful invitations that will make an impression on your guests and will set the tone for the beautiful ceremony to come.

Design invitations inspired by her engagement band or your wedding rings.

Show everyone how much you love your new engagement ring by designing your invitations to match! If your ring is modern, create invitations to emulate that style by using bold lines and neutral colors. Classic band? Use a letterpress to create a traditional feel to the invitation. White Gold rings? Choose silver and white colors. Yellow gold rings? Use gold in your invitations.

Monograms are a timeless way to showcase and demonstrate the upcoming nuptials. If you choose monograms for your invitations, think about using monograms in parts of your ceremony as well. From place cards to programs, monograms can be included in limitless ways.

Match the invitations to your wedding colors

Why not give your guests a sneak peak of what they can expect at your wedding by giving them a taste of the color palate before they arrive? We love the idea of having everything coordinate.

Most of all, be creative! Invitations should be indicative of both you as a couple and what the wedding will be like. Pick an invitation that you both love.

Wedding Dress Trends

Summer is the time of year for weddings. That left us thinking, what styles of wedding dresses would be popular this year? The answer may surprise you.

1. Embellished Belts
Everywhere we looked, it seemed like a jeweled belt was there. This trend is great for flattering almost every figure, so it is one we really like.

2. Modified Mermaid Silhouettes
Easier to move in, this trend is replacing the more traditional mermaid styles. Also, it is more dramatic that other traditional styles, like the trumpet style, and is a twist on the classic, flattering fit-and-flare style.

3. Separates
Instead of changing into a whole new dress for the reception, separates allow the bride to change her look by simply changing the skirt or bodice for a fresh new look.

4. Sheer coverage
This style allows for more coverage with just a touch of skin showing. It works with many different necklines, so its versatility makes the look wonderful.

5. Keyhole Necklines
This trend is one of our favorites because it adds drama and flair to the classic strapless neckline, with a similar amount of coverage.

6. Texture
Whether added through tiers, lace, or a statement addition like a big bloom, we love the idea of adding interest to a gown through simple texture.

What do you think of these trends? What looks would you incorporate into your own wedding dress?

The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara

The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara

The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara was a gift for Queen Mary on her wedding day in 1893. Originally purchased from Garrard, Queen Mary passed it down to Queen Elizabeth II, her granddaughter on her wedding day in 1947. Queen Elizabeth II wears the tiara frequently, usually without its base. Interestingly, it was designed so it could also function as a necklace.

Described as “a diamond festoon-and-scroll design surmounted by nine large oriental pearls on diamond spikes and set on a bandeau base of alternate round and lozenge collets between two plain bands of diamonds,” it was speculated that Duchess Catherine may have been offered it to wear to her own wedding.

What do you think of the tiara? Would you consider wearing a tiara to your wedding?
