Fashion Jewelry for Your Wedding Day

Weddings are all about the bridal party and guests wearing fashionable and “fancy” clothing and a great deal of thought and effort go into making a bride look fantastic for her “big day.”  I probably don’t have to tell you but, most modern brides will spend hours choosing and purchasing everything from special bags and shoes, to fashion jewelry that coordinates with their gowns.
But it doesn’t stop with the bride, most brides want their bridal parties to look their best too that includes groomsmen as well.  If you still haven’t gotten your bridal party gifts, why not give the guys and girls coordinated pieces of jewelry?

The fashion jewelry that a bride might present to her maid of honor and bridesmaids are often quite valuable, and usually include diamonds and precious metals. Items like simple pendant necklaces, delicate bracelets or elegant stud earrings.

Grooms might give his groomsmen cuff links, tie tacks and even watches. This sort of male fashion jewelry is also usually quite valuable and accented with diamonds and precious metals as well.

Just as any wedding planning is best done with plenty of time remaining in the schedule, so too is shopping for wedding jewelry for the entire bridal party. It is important to note that a shop or jeweler may not have a large enough quantity on hand or may need to resize certain items. So don’t wait too long try to finalize your decision more than a month before the wedding day.

Fashion jewelry is also a nice gift for the flower girl and ring bearer as well, and many couples will often present the youngest members of their party with their first valuable diamond or precious metal jewelry.

Groom’s Week – Manscaping 101

Attention grooms, ladies aren’t the only ones who should be visiting the salon pre-wedding.  If you’re the DIY type, be sure to check out Remington’s PG-360, the new 8-in-1 personal groomer.

This handy gadget features the world’s first neckliner, which guarantees a straight, clean neckline!  The 10 adjustable settings are great for trimming sideburns, necks, manes and other hairy regions, while five adjustable settings tackle all styles of facial hair – goatees, soul patches, light two-day stubble, moustaches and even the heaviest beards.

The cordless and rechargeable groomer is also equipped with a nose and ear hair trimmer for, um, that not-so-stylish hair. Note to the guys, these should ideally be used before you hear the words “Honey, your nose hair is really long” or “Ewwww, is that hair growing in your ear?”

I had the Globetrotting Groom try it out and he was impressed with the clipper power, ease of use and battery life.

At just $18.94, it’s an affordable gift for your groom and groomsmen which will allow the bride to relax knowing the guys will end up looking well groomed on the big day!

Groom’s Week: Target Practice – A Nightlight for Guys

Here’s a groovy gadget for grooms that brides will benefit from too. Whether you’re already living together or will be after the upcoming wedding, one of the irksome things about guys is when they leave the seat up (add groan here…). Even the most well mannered gents will be guilty of this from time to time so here’s your chance to be prepared.

The Johnny Light is a night light for your toilet bowl that lights up when he leaves the seat up! No more falling in for you and no more misguided pee pee for him. Genius I say! The Globetrotting Groom says any gadget with LEDs and batteries will be a sure hit with men. Just watch this video for details.

Get one for your groom as an “I can’t wait to live with you” present and spare yourself the “seat-up vs. seat down” controversy before it starts. Its also a fun bachelor or bachelorette party gag gift. Next up, getting him to put a new roll of toilet paper in after he uses it all up…..
