LOL – All the Way to the Bank

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Today’s brides are fortunate that so many great online resources exist to help a bride plan her wedding -and plan her wedding on a budget, which is what we’re all about. We came across another great article about renting options for brides, this one at http://www.bridefinds.com/2011/5-things-you-didnt-know-you-could-rent-for-your-wedding-cakes-diamonds-veils-more/. It appears that more brides are catching on – and laughing all the way to the bank.

Bride Finds - Got the ring? Now get the rest.

It’s only been recently that brides have as many options as they do for renting wedding related items, rather than buying. In the past, the options for brides to rent included renting the reception hall, renting the tables and chairs, and renting the table linens. As the green movement evolved, peoples’ perceptions changed. It’s now commonplace to consider whether an item can be used by someone else.

Of course, the other big factor that’s contributed to the popularity of the rental industry has been the economy (recessions tend to do that). For brides, that means more options to save. Today’s brides can rent their wedding dress, rent their bridesmaid dresses, and rent jewelry – real, top quality, fine diamond jewelry that wasn’t even an option for brides to purchase in the past, or present, because of the high cost of diamond jewelry.

Our advice? Consider all your renting options, you’d be doing your wedding budget a favor. Just don’t rent the husband – and try not to meet him on a reality show.

Moms are getting into the game!  We’ve seen an uptick in the number of mothers of the bride who are turning to Adorn for their daughter’s big day.

Donning a conservative, yet elegant dress, these moms are adding a bit of sparkle and sophistication by incorporating classic diamond jewelry into their look. Coincidentally, with all the great colors out there for mother of the brides dresses these days, moms are still turning to the classics – black, navy. Perhaps they’re afraid of clashing with the wedding colors or bridesmaid dresses – or perhaps they’re just great moms being cautious about upstaging the bride. :)

Whatever their reason, we’re discovering these moms have great taste and style. A popular option for mothers of the bride looking to coordinate with their navy dress is our stunning Beckford necklace. Retailing for $45,000, this beautiful, and simply gorgeous, blue sapphire and diamond necklace adds just the right touch of classic glamour and rents for $990.

For mothers who have opted to go with the classic black dress, our Elizabeth pearl and diamond necklace has been a great choice. We hate to brag, but it’s quite simply the most beautiful pearl necklace we’ve seen! Obviously, it also coordinates well with our Hartley earrings, a large pearl drop and diamond rosettes at the post. We consider the Elizabeth necklace a steal for a $200 rental; the coordinating earrings go for $120.
