When you make your way down the aisle, your attire doesn’t have to be limited to the traditional white dress. In fact, white wedding gowns did not become the norm for brides until Queen Victoria chose to wear white for her marriage to Prince Albert. If you want to add some color to your bridal look, check out these 10 colored wedding dresses from top designers and visit a local salon to get the look!
Sapphires have long been a symbol of wisdom, virtue, good fortune and holiness for royals. In an engagement ring, a sapphire means faithfulness and sincerity too and is believed to calm the spirit and heal the body. Long a favorite of royals, the sapphire is known for its beauty, brilliance and hardiness. The most famous royal blue sapphire engagement ring in modern history was that of Princess Diana’s, now Kate Middleton’s.
We’ve handpicked six sapphire accessories from our trusted jewelers, ranging from rings to necklaces just for you. Scroll down and let the queen within you aspire for a sapphire. Happy shopping!
So you’re engaged. Congratulations! What better way to commemorate the occasion than with a fun engagement photo shoot with your photographer. You could use these pictures to announce your engagement to the world, use your favorite pictures on Save the Date cards, use them on your wedding website and so much more.
But really, the best part in our opinion is the shoot itself. Planning it with your photographer, choosing the location(s) and the outfits and then getting dressed for it is so much fun. You and your fiancé could make a day of it and visit some of your favorite spots and hangouts, and have multiple outfit changes to suit your mood and tell the story of “you”. An engagement shoot is the perfect time to let your personalities shine as there are no rules to follow. From casual to chic and formal, you can have it all!
We rounded up some of our favorite dresses and accessories for engagement pictures and are certain you’ll love them too! Best of all, you’ll enjoy wearing them again and again. Check them out and get inspired by these five glamorous engagement shoot outfit ideas!
