When you think of wedding jewelry, you probably think about wedding rings. But there are a lot of other ways that jewelry lovers can incorporate some bling into their nuptials. Below are some high-impact uses for jewelry in weddings.

Bridesmaid Gifts
It’s common practice for brides to shower their bridesmaids with thank you gifts. After all, the bridesmaids are the moral support that the bride needs to pull everything together for the big day. One trend that’s been popular in recent years is to get the bridesmaids jewelry to wear in the wedding. You can get bridal party sets like the ones above so that everyone matches your wedding colors and each other.  This is a great way to thank your bridesmaids and have them looking great on your big day.

Brooch Bouquets
Another popular trend going around is replacing the traditional floral bouquet with a “bouquet” made of brooches and other jewelry. You can buy pre-made or custom ordered brooch bouquets through online retailers such as Etsy or you can DIY-it up and make your own! This is a great way to incorporate your favorite jewelry and any heirlooms that may have been passed down to you. You can also ask friends and family to contribute a piece to your brooch bouquet to add even more sentimental value. Here’s a great tutorial for how to make a brooch bouquet yourself.

If you want a simple way to class up your centerpieces, attach some antique jewelry to some fabric and wrap it around a jar or vase. You can also put jewelry on table runners to add some bling to the table itself. If pearls are your jam, fill tall vases up with pearl strands. There are countless ways you can incorporate your taste in jewelry into your reception décor.

Cake Jewelry
If you have one or two large pieces of jewelry that you want to incorporate into your décor in a big way, consider showing them to your cake decorator and seeing if they can build the cake design around them. The cake is one item that is sure to be seen and used as a focal point in photos. This is a great way to let those special heirlooms shine.
