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!
If you happen to have two major dates in your future — a baby's due date and a wedding — well, soon-to-be Mrs. Mom, you have much to celebrate. But first, take a deep breath and pick the wedding dress. Size your maternity wedding dress according to what your due date will be on your wedding day, and size up to cover your bases: It's always easier to tailor a larger dress. Then the sky's the limit! You can a choose a silhouette that includes a flowing A-line skirt and a high empire waist or, in the opposite direction, a form-fitting style that shows off your great legs and features a flattering neckline. If your bump will be small on the big day and you would prefer to hide it, a peplum waist is the perfect camouflage. (Bonus: In some cases, you can double dip by using your wedding dress as your baby shower gown.) No matter how far along you are, your wedding will be a celebration of love and life. We've rounded up some gorgeous maternity wedding gowns from our favorite online shops, including Etsy, Nordstrom and David's Bridal. Cheers to you!
In an era of personalization, your love story can be customized with a unique wedding band. Sure, the engagement ring is the bling that grabs the initial attention, but the wedding band is the ring that truly symbolizes a lifetime union. Make it as special as your relationship by putting a personal spin on your wedding band. You can set your wedding ring apart by choosing from various metals, including yellow, white and rose gold rings. Those on a budget can even choose diamonds set in sterling silver, stainless steel or tungsten. Beyond diamonds, there are many gemstones that add color to a wedding band. We have scoured the inventory of unique rings to make our list of wedding bands that cost less than $500, including rings from Saks Fifth Avenue, Amazon and Neiman Marcus.
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.
