What to Do with Your Wedding Jewelry after the Wedding?

Monday, February 11th, 2019

You want to be the most splendid bride that has ever graced the earth with her smile as she walks down the aisle. And that’s perfectly understandable – every bride is unique in her own way, and her wedding day is a totally unique moment in her life. So yes, looking at your very, very best, is surely a priority on your list – and for a long list of good reasons too.

Your hair, your makeup, your dress – they all matter a lot. And so does your wedding jewelry – the precious pieces you will adorn your attire with to complement it in a beautiful and elegant way.

What happens with the bridal jewelry after the wedding, though?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Wear it. Who says you have to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a piece and only wear it once? If you feel that your wedding jewelry would be suitable for other special occasions too, you can definitely wear it. A small and dainty necklace can be worn even on a more casual basis, if you feel that it’s a nice way to remind yourself of the magic of the Big Day!
  • Keep it. Some brides want to preserve their entire wedding look for as long as possible. Dress preservations and bouquet preservations are a real thing, and it’s easy to understand why a lady might want to make sure these items look flawless for the longest time. You can do the same with your wedding jewelry too – but don’t forget to have it professionally cleaned every now and again if you want them to stay just as pretty as they are today! Who knows, maybe one day your own daughter will want to wear your blue earrings on her wedding day!
  • Sell it. Want to save some money (and maybe use it for a luxury honeymoon)? You can definitely sell your gently used bridal jewelry and accessories too – and this is something you can do with your dress and even with your wedding décor.

Looking for gently used wedding jewelry for your Big Day? Or maybe for a place that will allow you to rent these pieces for the most special event of your life? Contact Adorn right now and come see the stunning options we offer. You won’t regret it!

4 Things to Know before You Attend Your Final Wedding Dress Fitting Appointment

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Looking picture-perfect is one of the most important items on a bride’s list of to-do’s – and it all starts with picking the right wedding dress to suit her, her style, her personality, her story.

Once you have ordered your gown, you will also have to attend a few fitting appointments to ensure that your wedding dress is perfect for your body – and your final wedding dress fitting appointment is of the utmost importance.

What are some of the essential things to know before you attend your final wedding dress fitting appointment?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • If you plan on losing weight, make sure you stop around the time you have your final wedding gown fitting appointment. You want this appointment to be the last one, so your wedding dress should suit your body as you will “wear” it on your Big Day. Of course, weight loss can happen afterwards too, but do make sure your dress will be able to adjust to that.
  • By the time you have your last fitting appointment, you should already own your wedding shoes. Most importantly, you should bring them with you to your fitting appointment. This is extremely important because it will determine the actual length of your wedding gown.
  • It is also important to bring the wedding day undergarments with you as well. Yes, you should bring along the actual undergarments you plan on wearing on your wedding day. This will allow your seamstress to fit the dress around your body in a way that makes the undergarments invisible (and it will also allow you to make undergarment adjustments in case you notice any irregularities during the last fitting appointment).
  • Last, but not least, it is recommended that you bring your major wedding accessories with you too. For instance, your wedding veil is important for the fitting appointment, especially if it’s very long and it needs to coordinate with the train. Other accessories are important too, because they will help you gain a better perspective of how you will actually look on your wedding day.

Our Brides and Why We Love Them

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

We here at Adorn love all our blushing bride clients! That is why it’s always so great to hear back from them after the wedding! We often receive pictures showing us just how lovely they looked on their special day.

Below is an excerpt from the email she sent us:

“I received so many compliments on the jewelry throughout the night, and even I was amazed at how intricate the details were, and how seriously beautiful and unique these pieces were. Not only is the process easy, and the jewelry is gorgeous, but the service was spot on!!!!!!”

Susanna – you truly look like a princess and we are so happy to be apart of your wedding memories.  Thank you for your kind words and wonderful pictures. For more testimonials click here

Now its no surprise to us that she would look so beautiful in our dazzling diamonds, but it was absolutely wonderful to hear all the compliments she received from her guests. Her photographer, Dasha Wright, was one of the first to comment on how the brought real sparkle to the blushing brides face. “They are just stunning!” she told me while shooting Kendra in the cocktail hour crowd. I agree Dasha, they are.

Kendra also took us aside to thank us for making the process so easy for her! “I didn’t think it was going to be difficult but I never realized how easy renting jewelry from you would be! It arrived on the exact day at the exact time requested – it was perfect!!”

Thanks Kendra and so are you!
