You may or not know that the majority of summer Irish weddings take place in August. Those who were planning a wedding for this year or still planning needed only glance at the spring 2018 bridal shows for a dose of inspiration. Well, mainly... All the trends have been disturbed when the brides got to see Megan Merkel’s wedding dress in May. Marrying a Royal is a huge deal and as we know anything they do has a huge impact on trends.
I remember planning my own wedding and like many brides, the first thing I had to pick is the dress. Luckily I was not influenced by a Royal Wedding as there was none on that year. Although girls often imagine their wedding day years before it happens, when you actually have to go shop for a dress, you might not know where to start. And the sooner you pick out the dress, the sooner you can get on with the rest of the things. After all, as any bride or bride-to-be knows, there are so many other decisions to make when it comes to your wedding, you just want to keep sane and make sure everything else gets as much attention or near as much. In this post, I want to turn your attention to wedding jewellery that you probably overlooked.
Speaking from the experience, pretty much like the wedding dress, this will be something you probably only wear once. Unless you are going to be related to Queen Mother and can have a pick of her jewellery and accessories collection (like Meghan did in May wearing vintage headpiece), you will probably be buying your own jewellery to match the dress. So considering all the costs and the fact that you will only wear it that day (realistically and speaking from my own experience and many brides I dealt with through the shop over the years), does it need to be expensive or does it just need to look good and match your dress and everything else you will be wearing?
In the year I got married the wedding dress industry has been bombarded by colour and more and more brides were forgoing the traditional white and ivory wedding dresses in favour of some bold colours. Well, those were 2013 & 2014, you might notice that 2018 is seeing more traditional colours dominating the scene but the colour has not left the wedding fashion world completely. Instead, it has re-invented itself and made friends with a traditional white, ivory and pastels. For anyone getting married in summer, you might love the idea of the floral wedding dress. If you choose a statement dress like that, then you should go more elegant with the jewellery However if you go for a pastel shade, white or ivory dress, you are free to go with a bald piece of jewellery like a statement necklace.
You might feel like going traditional and my ultimate suggestion is pearls.
This set will not only look elegant and gorgeous with a white dress, it will definitely not break the bank, like the rest of the wedding expenses!
