Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
Everyone loves a traditional wedding registry that includes every essential accoutrement for feathering a newlywed nest. That said, some wedding guests choose to take some creative leeway by gifting the newlyweds with uber-special personalized gifts. We have curated such gifts in our fantastic list by including personalized gifts for couples that further style or functionality — or both. So commemorate the couple's big day with these one-of-a-kind items from Neiman Marcus, Uncommon Goods, Shutterfly and more.
Taking advantage of the long Fourth of July long weekend for your wedding celebration? Tones of red, white and blue will add sizzle to the shindig. Our country's birthday invites you to imbue your wedding with classic Americana motifs. Plus, planning a patriotic party allows you to create a laid-back and casual wedding vibe.
Think out of the box when orchestrating your Fourth of July wedding. Rather than the traditional white flower girl dress, choose gingham. Instead of fancy ties or ascots, have your groomsmen wear red, white and blue bowties. Then, finish the affair with sparkling fireworks!
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
