Styling the Bridesmaids
The once dreaded line of “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” no longer needs to place fear into the lives of young, single women. The idea of wearing an over-frilly bo-peep costume or modelling a lemon meringue puff-ball might be romanticised in Katherine Heigl’s “27 dresses”, but it is a legitimate nightmare for real-life women. Long gone is the notion of making your bridesmaids look ghastly in order to enhance your own natural beauty.
As your closest friends, your bridesmaids reflect who you are and the choices you have made and as such, you want them to look just as gorgeous as you – well, almost! We’re here to help you find new, innovative ways in which you and your bridesmaids can express your friendship with unique stylish flare. Of course, it’s not just about the dress; whether it be a custom designed piece of jewellery or an original accessory, allow us to complete your bridesmaids’ outfit and give them a look that complements the bride by exploring stunning personalised accessories.
If your girl group is that of Carrie’s in ‘Sex in the City’, what better way to celebrate the foundations of friendship than with bespoke personalised stilettos? From Jimmy Choos and Monolo Blaniks to Vivienne Westwood, give the girls in your life something to treasure forever by personalising their beautiful shoes with their names, initials or favourite romantic quotes.
Weddings are full of symbolism and it’s often that extra personal touch that gives your day the magical je ne sais quoi. Allow your bridesmaids to say something special about your friendship by designing their own brooch to be pinned to their bouquet. It can be a colour that represents you, a quote that is fitting or maybe a symbol of where you first met. Let it be their special gift to you and when the day is over, you can either place them all in a keepsake box to pass on to your daughter or you can be safe in the knowledge that your best friends will think of you every time they wear it. Designing and making your brooches together using pretty pearls and crystals could allow for some quality time with your favourite girls. They will make beautiful accessories for your bouquets on the big day.
It’s always nice to give your bridesmaids a gift on your special day to show them how much they mean to you. Jewellery is always a beautiful option as it is something they can wear on the day that will complement their bridesmaid dresses but they can also wear it after the wedding day. Personalising jewellery can make it even more special. Below are some stunning options.
