Once upon a time, folks who wanted a wedding band were often stuck with the same old thing: plain bands in the usual metals. Now, we’re all about simplicity, but sometimes you want something that really stands out and represents you. And when you’re buying online from artisans who can custom create anything you want? This is NOT your father’s wedding ring anymore…
While y’all know we love big, colorful, and wild wedding themes, we also totally love simple, pared down, and more romantic themes just as much. So with warmer weather looming and outdoor weddings taking center stage for spring and summer, I wanted to explore what nature themed wedding details and boho wedding details I could find that fit a more natural and organic aesthetic. Think lace, linen, floral embroidery, woods, kraft paper, eucalyptus, and colors pulled from nature.
As some of you may know, I’m currently engaged and we’re juuuuust at the point where we both have to start committing to wedding bands. In our searches, I just kept coming back to one of our partners, Revolution Jewelry, since their selection is SO huge. My partner really didn’t know that there were options other than a plain metal band, so when he saw what was actually out there… it was game on.
I featured some gorgeous and whimsical animal rings and jewelry over on Offbeat Home & Life today that just screamed wedding party gifts. Which of your wedding party would NOT want to rock a frog prince ring, a red panda ring, or a gorgeous enamel floral bracelet?
Remember WAY back in 2001 when Carrie Bradshaw wigged TF out when Aidan planned to propose with a pear-shaped diamond on Sex and the City? The even weirder part was that she balked at yellow gold, which of course is back with a vengeance now. It seems like a very long time ago.
I wanted to see what was going on in the world of the pear and how weird and gorgeous and HUGE they could get. So I went a-hunting. I’m totally going to cheat by including some non-diamonds in here, too. Fight me. Let’s shop!
Whether it’s unique and awesome men’s wedding bands, adding in colored gemstones, or harnessing the power of layered metals, out-of-this-world meteorite, or even a solid DIAMOND band (it’s a THING!), your wildest wish is their command.
