Say Yes: Our Wedding Style Guide
Wedding season has arrived, and from intimate ceremonies to extravagant affairs, it’s a perfect opportunity to gather with great company and toast to true love – all while showing off your unique personal style. From engagement rings, to sought-after registry picks, to outfits that would get you onto any best dressed list, our roundup is full of pieces that you’ll love and cherish forever.
For the Chic Bride
The Divas’ Dream necklace marries subtle charm and a dose of drama — the perfect accent for a minimal wedding look. Fiorever earrings are a fitting combination of wedding day beauty and symbolism, taking their inspiration from the Italian word for flower, fiore, and the idea of forever.
Each Mikimoto Akoya cultured pearl is unique, and each strand a carefully crafted artwork. A one-of-a-kind gift set is a thoughtful way to thank the members of your wedding party.
Your wedding shoes are bound to make an appearance when you kick up your heels, so make sure they are stylish. Delicately rhinestone-studded sandals are just the right mix of ladylike and reception-ready.
For an impressive “something new” consider the Panthère de Cartier. The maison’s iconic cat is adorned with emeralds, onyx and diamonds in a breathtaking bracelet.
You’ll definitely want a clutch to store a few bridal essentials for before and after the ceremony (think makeup for touch-ups, a handkerchief and your phone in case you want to snap some newlywed pics). Complement your look with a woven leather version in minimal white that you can carry far beyond your wedding day.
Why settle for anything less than a work of art for your engagement ring? David Yurman’s early days as an NYC sculptor are evident in his signature styles made of intertwining cables. Here they’re taken to new heights with sparkling micro pave diamonds surrounding a stunning cushion-cut gem.
One part minimalist, one part retro Hollywood appeal, Saint Laurent stiletto mules are a deceivingly simple, fashion-forward choice.
For the Stylish Groom
A black velvet bow tie lends a handsome, formal air to a classic tux or suit, while a white silk option is a subtle monochromatic statement paired with a crisp, white dress shirt.
For a look that’s polished head to toe turn to the finest in Parisian footwear. A pair of Berluti leather derbys combines timeless craftsmanship with a markedly modern attitude.
Because the look starts with the perfect suit, look no further than Ermenegildo Zegna. One of the most important days of your life calls for something tailored to your personal style, and Zegna’s custom suiting allows just that.
For the Best-Dressed Guest
As the invites roll in, the question becomes clear: what to wear? Find the answer in event-worthy investment pieces that you’ll wear again and again.
Add a pop of color to your look with pieces inspired by Pop Art sculpture in the form of the Dulcis cocktail ring and stud earrings.
If you think a watch can’t rise to the level of jewelry on your wedding day, think again. The Vacheron Constantin Égérie Self-Winding is crafted with 18K white gold and dazzles with a dial adorned with pave diamonds.
Versatility is built into the design of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, meaning you’ll be able to wear this special piece on your wedding day and beyond. Consider it jewelry for the ceremony — the case back features ornate, floral enameling and painstakingly set diamonds — then flip it and reverse it when the time is right.
Piaget Possession rings come in a colorful array of gems from red carnelian to turquoise to malachite, and they all feature a twist: turning bands of diamonds that will light up the dancefloor.
Speaking of dancing, you’ll need a pair of dancing shoes. Show off your moves in silver sandals with cool-girl accents, courtesy of French label Isabel Marant. They’ll look great with jeans, a white tee and a blazer later on.
For the Gift List
You can’t go wrong with the classics, but you can still mix it up with a Kitchenaid® Artisan® Mixer. It’s a kitchen mainstay that comes in a rainbow of colors to brighten up your space.
Start the newlyweds off with new organic cotton bedding.
Toast your return from your honeymoon with “His” and “His” glasses, and make the perfect toast for breakfast with a retro Smeg that counts as countertop decor.
18” Akoya cultured pearl three piece-set, set in 18k white gold. Presented in a Mikimoto box gift set.
For groomsmen, unexpected office upgrades are a solid gifting option. Carl Auböck re-editions, like a leather-bound letter holder and magazine rack, are modern takes on mid-century design history that are sure to impress.
For the Honeymoon
Just because your wedding day is over doesn’t mean you have to stop dressing like it, and curating your honeymoon looks is all part of the fun. A sleek set from Brunello Cucinelli is just the thing to pack. The linen twill skirt easily transitions from daytime exploring to nighttime celebrating paired with a paillette-embellished top.
Team them up with a practical bucket bag for all your travel essentials, and you’re ready for wherever your newlywed adventures take you.
Your honeymoon is the perfect excuse to splash out on next-level lingerie, and La Perla is the best in the game. The luxe line has got you covered for lounging everywhere from your hotel room to poolside with fluid, feminine robes, lace-accented knickers and glamorous swimsuits. Our top pick? The silk slip dress in white that doubles as an evening dress.
Zimmermann has perfected the art of the easy, breezy summer dress. Take your pick from pretty prints to saturated hues and lengths from mini to maxi.
