Happy Friday, Wedding Yentas fans. You know what we’re not a fan of? Hearing bridesmaids tell nightmare stories about brides who made them buy expensive dresses they could never wear again. You don’t want to be one of those brides, do you? And we’re sure some of you can relate to dishing out the cash for a frock you don’t give a frock about after your girlfriend’s wedding day. Well guess what? Jewelry doesn’t have to be that way. Jewelry has the power to be timeless and versatile and on this very Friday where we talk about one of our favorite things, we want to share a line of bling that will have you and your bridesmaids asking for more unbridal bridal jewelry. I Do by Kendra Scott is the “it” line that features a rainbow of colors that even makes a leprechaun green(er) with envy, and at the end of this rainbow is a pot of gold in the form of happy bridesmaids.
A common gift that a bride gives to her maids is something sparkly to wear on the wedding day. A pair of earrings, a special bracelet, a dangling necklace. So it’s likely that you’ll be doing the same: giving a little memento to remember your wedding day. But what’s the point of wanting your girls to remember your special oo-la-la day if the trinket is ugly or cheesy or cheap? Instead, they’ll forget it while it’s stuffed away in a drawer for the rest of its tarnished life. So, personalize it! Give it legs! Make your jewelry presents actually have a life after your kisses and cake-cutting.
With Kendra Scott’s bridal line, you have so many choices that you’ll be sure to find something special for each of your bridesmaids. Kendra Scott creates pieces that are modern and colorful, bringing you many options to match your wedding day’s color palette. Do you want to complement colors or match colors? Do you want to provide a piece that goes along with each maid’s favorite color? Do you want them to match your jewelry so you create a set that ties you and your girls together? Answer these questions for yourself and then start shopping!
Think we’re full of hooey? How would this Kendra Scott girl simply know anything about what you’re going through as a stressed-out bride? Oh, trust us. She knows. Kendra was a recent bride and had such difficulty finding jewelry to wear on her wedding day that was exciting and out-of-the-box. If you’re not a “pearls” kind of girl and you don’t want to wear pieces that all look the same out of department store glass cases, just know that Kendra’s got your back and felt your pain, which is why she took it upon herself to create this bridal line. (Hmmm… we know a little something about creating something to fill a need that wasn’t met when planning a wedding something…. AHEM The Wedding Yentas dot com AHEM). So, as a bride on the jewelry-shopping frontlines, Kendra went to battle for you and now she’s provided a kingdom of brides a key to the jewelry castle.
Because it’s still October and we’re still really into raising breast cancer awareness (by the way, you can still leave a comment on last week’s Think Pink Wedding post so we can donate $1 for every comment we receive), we thought we’d showcase these pink pieces since pink is the official color of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This hue, though, is one of many, many options you have for pink and other bold, chic colors you can choose to incorporate in your wedding day jewelry for yourself and your ladies. In fact, if you really want to get down and dirty with the broad color selections that Kendra Scott offers, you can play in The Color Bar so you can mix and match designs with colors. Control freak brides, prepare to be in heaven.
So, consider Kendra Scott for your wedding jewelry gifts and you’ll have some pretty happy bridesmaids who, a year later, will wish you a happy anniversary… of the day you gave them a gem of a gift. Oh, and give yourself a gift, too. If you provide your email address to the Kendra Scott website, you’ll get an email coupon for $20 off a purchase! And since Kendra Scott jewelry is already a great value, you’re basically paying nothing for a really impressive piece. Saving and sparkling — yeah, we’re okay with that.
