Bridal Party & Wedding Party Jewelry Gifts
SHOP BY RECIPIENT
Bridesmaid Jewelry - Special Gifts for Your Special DayWeddings have become more creative and individual over the years. Many brides now let their bridesmaids choose dress styles that flatter them. Different jewelry styles are another way to keep a consistent theme while still letting bridesmaids look and feel their best.
If you're the Maid of Honor, you may be in charge of coordinating accessories for the other bridesmaids. Ask the bride how she feels about individualized jewelry before moving forward with a purchase. Don't be upset if the bride disagrees with your idea - she may have a specific idea for her day in mind.
Bridal parties have a wide range of jewelry options to choose from. Traditionally, bridesmaids may receive cultured pearl pendants or gemstones necklaces with one of the wedding colors. For a more modern flair, choose jewelry that can be worn for multiple occasions. Examples include pendants monogrammed with the first initial of each bridesmaid's name, layered necklaces , or jewelry with geometric shapes or multiple colors.
Once you have an idea, ask each bridesmaid what type of jewelry they would like - one may prefer earrings , while another may be partial to bracelets. Next, consider the wedding colors as well as the wedding theme (modern, vintage, nature) and find pieces that incorporate both. Make sure that the metal colors and finishes coordinate to create a unified theme among the bridesmaids.
While it may take some time, finding the right bridesmaid jewelry is an exciting and rewarding experience that can enhance the look of a bridal party and create a keepsake that commemorates a special day.
If you need help, your Jared jewelry specialist will be happy to work with you to find pieces that fit both the wedding and your budget. Happy shopping!
Wedding Gifts from the Groom to the Bride
Make her special day even more special
While it's not mandatory, it is a sweet tradition for the bride and groom to give each other gifts on their wedding day. Here are a few ways to mark this special day together as a couple.
You've already gotten her a ring. How about a special something to match? Think a diamond tennis bracelet or a gorgeous pair of solitaire earrings. These staples are dressy enough to wear with her wedding gown and classics she'll wear for the rest of her life.
A necklace is another great option. Explore personalized styles that celebrate your love for one another. Other ideas include a watch or a charm to commemorate your vows. No matter what option you think works best for your bride, Jared has what you are looking for.
Gifts for the Groom from the Bride
As you finalize plans for your wedding, one special tradition you might want to consider is the exchange of gifts between the bride and groom. Gifts can be given privately between the two of you before the big ceremony, but some choose to have their gifts delivered to one another as you both get ready with your wedding parties. Whatever you choose, just make sure you and your groom are on the same page about gifts and how you'll give them.
Depending on his style and personality, you can choose a traditional gift or a more modern one. Here are some ideas for both.
Classic, traditional gifts for him:
- A watch, engraved on back. Consider a pocket watch for an unexpected and sentimental keepsake.
- Cufflinks, amoney clip or a tie pin, engraved with your wedding date.
- Engraved necklace, ring or jewelry representative of his personal style.
- A bold chain necklace or bracelet, signifying the strength of your bond.
Whether you favor tradition or you have your own unique idea for a gift, the most important thing is that it is heartfelt and personal.
Gifts for the Parents of the Bride and GroomYour wedding is a milestone for many people in your life, especially your parents. They've provided financial and emotional support during your life, and recently in particular, as you planned your wedding. Say "thank you" for everything with a lasting, personal gift for your parents and in-laws.
This could be a special piece of jewelry for them to wear on your wedding day, or a keepsake with sentimental meaning. One way to make this gift special is with a personal engraving, perhaps including your wedding date.
For moms, a locket with a baby picture on one side and one of you today will be treasured. For dads, an engraved watch or monogrammed cuff links will lend a personal air to his suit.
For many jewelry choices, engraving is a way to add meaning and make it even more special. Many different styles can be inscribed with a favorite sentiment or the special date.
Whatever you may choose, your parents are sure to appreciate the thought and treasure their gifts for years to come.
Thanking Your Wedding Helpers with Gifts
A wedding is a special time to celebrate not just your love, but the love you have for the friends and family that make your day special. As part of this celebration, it's traditional to give gifts to the wedding party to thank them for their help.
Who Should Get A Gift?
There are many people who help make a wedding day special, but who should receive a gift? Before you start purchasing, talk with your partner and decide who made extra effort to help with your wedding day.
Next, decide on a gift budget that offers flexibility but doesn't add a burden to the finances needed to plan your wedding.
Wedding Gift Ideas For Women
For both traditional and practical reasons, jewelry is usually the best gift idea for the women in your bridal party. If you are letting each bridesmaid choose their own dress style, jewelry can be a great way to tie the look together.
Color stones and cultured pearls are available in a variety of colors that might match your wedding colors. Look for styles that will not only look great with their bridesmaid dresses, but that they will love to wear after the wedding day.
While every member of your bridal party is important, your Maid of Honor deserves a special gift to thank her for her help and friendship. Consider purchasing a personalized piece of jewelry to commemorate your wedding and acknowledge what she has done for you over the years.
Think something classic for your mom or future mother-in-law if you plan to give them a gift. A necklace or new pair of earrings to wear to the reception would make a stunning gift.
Wedding Gift Ideas For Men
Jewelry is also an option for the groomsmen. Consider items like cuff links, money clips, dog tags or other items that are easy to engrave. Watches also make an excellent gift, if your budget allows. A pocket watch can be an especially unique gift.
