  • I want to wear some beautiful and unique jewelry for my big day, but don’t want to splurge, any suggestions?

We get it, bling isn’t cheap! While you want to look fabulous on your wedding day, you may not want to spend a large chunk of money on wedding accessories. For the brides looking for some alternative jewelry options, we have some choices that will have you looking drop dead gorgeous without breaking the bank.

Rent the Runway : While most know it for affordable designer dresses for rent, this fashion forward site also has some seriously amazing accessories options. With designer options at low prices, any style of bride can find what she’s looking for on RTR. Whether you are looking for simple studs or a statement piece, using Rent the Runway is a great way to save while still looking stylish.

Adorn : Adorn is another great option for brides looking for high end jewelry for their big day. With diamond bracelets, earrings and accessories like clutches, this site offers some fantastic choices for the luxury bride.

Borrowing from Family : Another great resource for wedding bling is your own family! Borrowing jewelry from family members is not only a great way to save, but also a special way of incorporating family into your special celebration. Have a family heirloom that you have always admired? Your wedding could be a great opportunity to honor those special pieces and look beautiful at the same time!


  • I love the the tradition of incorporating something blue on my wedding day, what are some fun and subtle ways to do this?

We love this tradition too! We have seen brides interpret this tradition in a ton of different ways over the years, so don’t be afraid to make the tradition fit your style. One of our brides Jill wore a custom light blue hanky pinky bedazzled with the words “I do,” which we thought was such a simple and sweet way to incorporate blue. See her wedding photos here! Another one of our brides Jenny had her bridesmaids where matching boots with unique blue bottoms, how fun is that? See photos from her big day here!
