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.
To guarantee that there are no cold feet at a wedding, buy some stylish socks for the groomsmen. Fun prints abound in men's sockwear, from those featuring vintage Mickey Mouse illustrations to adorable dogs to the Rolling Stones' iconic tongue-and-lips logo. Because stylish men's socks offer guys the primo opportunity to energize their ensembles, look for funky, colorful sock sets that will bring chic to their feet.
The dual traits of fun and quality are a rarity in men's socks, but we've curated a list of socks that accomplish both. Groomsmen socks make awesome wedding party presents, so seek out yours among the favorites that we found at ASOS, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Weddings offer a rare opportunity to gather all of one's favorite people -- his and yours -- into one room for a fabulous time. Far before the wedding day arrives, you'll have chosen your most intimate friends to take their positions within the bridal party as bridesmaids and groomsmen. Thanking these special bridal party members with a gift is customary. You can do so before the wedding at various points: during the bachelor or bachelorette weekend or at the rehearsal dinner, for instance. Others do it while getting ready for the wedding, especially if the gift is something the guests might use to spruce themselves up, such as earrings or cuff links. Below, we've gathered an affordable selection of wedding party gifts. Believe it: For $10 and under, you can offer your bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts they'll use and enjoy for years to come from Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and other popular online stores.
More and more brides are taking the leap and opting to wear a white jumpsuit on their wedding day. The chic look has been championed by celebrity brides including Solange Knowles, in her marriage to video producer Alan Ferguson, and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who, of course, is married to actor George Clooney.
Knowles actually wore three different jumpsuits by French designer Stéphane Rolland during her wedding weekend, beginning with a sexy ivory-toned version she wore while biking to the ceremony at New Orleans' Marigny Opera House. By the wedding's end, she was dancing in the streets to a brass band while wearing her third jumpsuit, with a plunging neckline.
For the Italian civil ceremony that preceded her wedding, Amal Clooney wore what looked like a white jumpsuit, but was actually belted separates, by Stella McCartney. Clooney, who is friends with McCartney, has also worn a one-shoulder jumpsuit with crochet lace and cropped legs by the British designer, as well as a lace burgundy jumpsuit by Giambattista Valli.
A white bridal jumpsuit is a chic dress alternative that is perfect for the style-savvy bride. As Clooney did, the bride can wear a white jumpsuit to her civil wedding for an unexpected look that is destined to impress. She can also wear a jumpsuit to the wedding ceremony to create a memorable look. As another option, she could wear a jumpsuit to her wedding reception, because this wedding-dress alternative is perfect for hitting the dance floor. Freedom is the vibe of a bridal jumpsuit, and we love it.
