You might be the star of this show, but when your ring bearer makes his way up the aisle, step aside: All eyes will be on him. And this diminutive darling should carry a pillow that is as stylish as the wedding itself. The wedding ring bearer pillow carries a special symbolism, since it is the vessel upon which the couple's wedding bands sit. Today, many artisans have focused on creating gorgeous ring bearer pillows that live up to this important task. If your nuptials will be on a farm, the pillow can take rustic inspiration. For a glamorous affair, there are pillows trimmed in bows, lace and crystals. Garden or beach-inspired weddings can be well-served by pillows that bring a combination of fabrics and trims reminiscent of the sea. Whatever your wedding style, here are the 10 sweet ring bearer pillows from Etsy, David's Bridal, Amazon and more.
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.
Aside from the bride, the sweetest sight at the wedding is the flower girl. Holding her own with a dainty basket of petals, she is a vision of loveliness when she walks down the aisle. It's such fun to pick out a flower girl dress to blend in with the ensembles of the bridal party, especially for a light and bright spring or summer wedding. Your little princess can be traditional and wear white or ivory, or she can wear a solid color taken from the wedding palette. Some fashion-forward brides may even choose an interesting print that suits the mood of the wedding. Since the flower girl is something of a mascot, she can be command a truly unique aesthetic. Here, we've rounded up some the prettiest flower girl dresses from Nordstrom, J. Crew, BHLDN and more.
Dating back to the 1600s, cufflinks have long been the choice of nattily-attired men for securing the French cuffs on their dress shirts. These small ornamental clasps, once called "sleeve buttons," were made of silver and gold that was often encrusted with precious gems.
Today, one needn't be a true gentleman with an estate and butler to wear cufflinks to a special event. In fact, for a wedding we'd expect no less: After all, cufflinks are a must-wear, especially if yours is a black tie wedding. Plus, they're a great way to add a commemorative piece of jewelry to the occasion. They can announce his style, celebrate your bond or underscore his passion for a movie, book or vehicle.
The wedding table runner has traditionally been a must-have décor item for dressing up a table, whether it's used to cover the midsection of a bare table or added atop a tablecloth to create a rich tableau. In earlier centuries, layering such items was reserved for the wealthy as a sumptuous way to display one's taste. (Downton Abbey, anyone?) As a new bride, you'll enjoy using runners to decorate your table, along with your new serveware, china and glassware. For a wedding, they give an additional pop to the overall wedding design. Table runners may reflect the bride's color scheme to create a coordinated color palette, or in a neutral color, wedding table runners can provide the perfect backdrop for flowers and table settings.
Table runners can help lend a summery vibe to a wedding, as well. A burlap runner is perfect for a rustic wedding, while a floral print runner is divine for a garden wedding, and a shiny table runner ups the ante for a black-tie affair. Whatever your style, we've collected the best table runners from stores such as Etsy, Nordstrom, Macy's and more.
