One quick look around Bespoke Bride and you’ll find it’s pretty obvious that we’re not HUGE fans of being traditional, you wouldn’t find me throwing a beautiful bouquet that someone has poured their heart into creating just because it’s tradition and I’m not sure I would wear ‘something blue’ on my wedding day but one tradition I do really love is the garter.

Right, let’s talk dresses shall we? Because it’s not always easy to know what style of garter you can wear with different types of wedding dresses. For example, if you’re wearing a dress or skirt that has lot’s of layers then you really can choose from a wide range of garters, in fact you could wear any type that you like, whether it’s lace, silk, tulle or embellished, the garter world is your oyster!

However, if you’re going to be wearing a tight fitting gown then you might want to consider a simple silk garter, The Wedding Garter Co have garters (Like the ‘Hera’ garter) that have been specifically designed to be more sleek and discreet, making them the perfect hidden accessory. (Top Tip: Wear them just above the knee to keep them more concealed)



Colourful Bright Bold Watches 1

I never used to consider myself a watch person, I always carry my phone on me and use it to check the time (more often than not by having to fumble around in my bag for ages just to find it!) but the more and more bright and bold watches that I keep seeing have quickly changed my mind! I NEED that pop of colour and am fast becoming obsessed with having some serious wrist candy! My only problem is i’ve found WAY too many that I love love love from The Watch Hut, so i’m sharing my top 10 with you here and would love to know which one is your favourite?!

5 Simple Steps to Designing a Customised Engagement Ring!

The Diamond Ring Company

I just love the thought of having my own customised engagement ring. The thought of wearing something that was designed especially for you with your personality and taste in mind is beautiful! However commissioning your very own bespoke design can seem overwhelming so we have created this guide to make your experience as simple and enjoyable as possible.

The Diamond Ring Company

Decide on Your Budget

I always feel uncomfortable when I hear people claiming that the ideal cost of an engagement ring should be at least one to two months’ salary. Personally I think this should be balanced against what you can afford, just remember this will be a ring that will be most likely be worn for many years to come so be sure to choose quality as well as personal taste.

Do Your Research

Find a business such as The Diamond Ring Company that specialise in bespoke ring design and arrange to speak with one of their specialists about your design concept and budget. In order to receive an accurate quotation you need to be able to tell them as much as possible about your ring design so it is time to get researching.

Take a look at the jewellery that your partner already owns. Do they prefer small and dainty pieces, maybe they have a thing for vintage or perhaps they like to go bold with costume jewellery? Having an idea of the type of the jewellery they already wear will help you to focus your design when it comes to drafting your prototype. Keep any images of rings that you like and in some cases your partner may have also dropped subtle hints in the past. You might also want to think about chatting with their closest pals too, friends are a great at extracting important information such as ring size and style. Are they are on pinterest? See if you can find a ‘Ring or Jewellery board’ you will be surprised what you can find out about a person from their pinterest boards. Use the information you find to start sketching your ideas, if sketching isn’t your thing create a mood board. It is important that you are clear about your requirements when it comes to chatting with the specialists.

Orange, Pink, Yellow? Which Diamond Would you Pick to Symbolise your Relationship?

77 Diamonds Resized

I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of finding out the meanings and symbols of different things, what does my name mean, does it symbolize anything? What are the classic traits of a Gemini? And as a little girl one of my most prized possessions was my mood ring. I loved how it would change colour and then give me the excitement of running to my little book of colours to find out what that current colour meant. I’ve come a long way since then with my mood ring but when it comes to choosing one permanent coloured diamond, I would love to look down at that beautiful ring on my finger and not only see love but also see the traits that the chosen colour represents! Wouldn’t you love that too? To know your ring symbolises strength, or hope or joy?

Well if you love colours as much as me then stay with me because we’ve teamed up with 77 Diamonds to reveal all of the meanings behind their beautiful diamonds and we want to know which one is your favourite!

Unique, original, beautiful are just some of the words I would use to describe the beautiful headpieces we are going to be sharing with you today. I love the thought of only wearing one of a kind items made especially for me, from heirlooms passed down from special family members or even from bits and pieces I have collected from charity shops over the years. There is something so special about knowing that piece holds your most valuable memories and what better than having this creation as part of the one of the most important days of your lives. How wonderful is that?
