More and more couples are choosing to eschew tradition on their wedding day. This means skipping the wedding breakfast, more red wedding dresses and an increasing number of couples writing their own vows.
It's a trend that's also taken off in wedding jewellery, with many brides opting to ditch the traditional bling, instead choosing contemporary jewellery which might have more personal significance to them, or which might just be more their style!
A relatively traditional bride could do worse than to choose a necklace from Daisy Jewellery's English Vintage Daisy collection. Floral motifs provide a nod to traditional wedding themes, while the two-tone daisy charms add a more modern twist.
Items are available in a variety of sizes - a more delicate daisy pendant might suit a more understated dress, while opting for the larger size makes more of a statement.
Claudia Bradby offers a classic white pearl bracelet with a battered heart charm that could perfectly suit a more retro bride. The pearls and heart motif are reminiscent of the 1950s, so team the bracelet with a dress that has a full skirt and nipped in waist and make-up that radiates old-school glamour for a perfectly pin-up look.
Add the matching necklace and earrings to your ensemble for full effect - it's a timeless set that you could treasure forever.
Of course the most important jewellery that anyone will wear on their wedding day is their wedding ring. It'll be with you for the rest of your life, so you'd better make the right choice!
However much of a statement you want to make with the rest of your contemporary jewellery, there's an argument for keeping your wedding rings simple - the less fuss, the less there is to go out of style.
Colette Waudby offers simple but elegant curved rings with top end materials and high quality design - but they don't risk going out of style. The curved edges are designed to stack with other rings in the collection, including engagement and eternity rings, so they're a solid choice for a beautiful and long-lasting wedding ring.
