Dressing the Bride & the Bridal Party
NAJO’s Bridal Jewellery Collection for the Wedding Season Ahead
What’s the best advice a bride can receive about her wedding day style? Choose a look that honours who you really are, something that reflects the most glamorous, beautiful version of you. Try not to get too caught up in current trends, or looks you’ve seen on bridal blogs or on your favourite celebrities. Above all else, keep it authentic.
This applies as much to your jewellery as it does to your dress, as well as to what you choose for your bridal party to wear. Instead of going overboard with glittery faux jewels or costume pieces that you’ll only wear once, why not select a few genuine, exquisite pieces that you’ll wear and cherish for many years to come?
Identify your own wedding day style
At NAJO, we believe every woman has a story to tell, and never more so than on her wedding day. Urban brides who prefer a clean, modern style of dress will find the perfect partner in a sleek, highly polished sterling silver collar and bangle. Refined brides and bridesmaids will adore our retro-inspired mabe pearl stud earrings and classic chunky curb link bracelets – ideal for a daytime wedding by the harbour.
Die-hard romantics will fall in love with the style and symbolism of our knot ring and matching bracelet, or the lustrous bridal white of our freshwater pearl-accented bangles and cuffs, pendants and drop earrings.
‘Blushing’ brides will no doubt be drawn to the rosy hues of our romantic rose-gold plated jewellery, which is the perfect complement to gowns in creamier shades of off-white or ivory, or even pretty pastel dresses.
Bridal etiquette – a couple of pointers
These days, it seems a little old-fashioned to be talking about ‘wedding etiquette’ – it’s really your day and your chance to show the world who you are as a couple. But there are some things you might like to consider when it comes to your wedding jewellery.
Bridal Party Gifts
It’s traditional to purchase special gifts to thank each member of your bridal party, including any junior flower girls or page boys. This is especially thoughtful if your bridal party is covering the cost of their own outfits. A special piece of jewellery they’ll wear on the day is the perfect choice – and a wonderful keepsake by which they’ll remember the day.
All About Rings
There’s nothing in the rulebooks to say brides can’t wear a ring on their wedding day in addition to their engagement ring and wedding ring. Something that coordinates with the rest of your wedding-day jewellery, such a pearl ring or rose gold plate feature ring, is a gorgeous choice. It’s just best to wear it on the other hand from your wedding ring so it doesn’t interfere with the ceremony!
Rings also make a gorgeous, non-traditional gift for each of your bridesmaids. NAJO has many great-value sterling silver rings accented with pearls, rose gold and more to suit every style. Celebrate the different personalities of each member of your bridal party by giving everyone a unique gift – they’ll love them even more, especially as each NAJO piece comes gorgeously boxed and ready for presenting. Easy!
