You’ve scoured magazines like a detective, attended every bridal show in the city and tried on countless dresses. Yet, when the chips are down, it’s time to seek inspiration from our favorite show, “Say Yes to the Dress.” At that magical moment, the bride-to-be finds the dress of her dreams, we hope that this TV-worthy experience may soon be ours too! Whether you’re a happy crier or a giddy squealer, every bride deserves that special feeling of finding the one—well, technically the second one because you’ve already got your prince.
So let’s get your ideas flowing; time to glance at brides from the show’s most popular episodes.
The Classic Bride
This babe from Season 8 has got her “aha” moment in this stunning strapless gown. Fortunately, a strapless design allows for lots of creativity when choosing a necklace piece for your wedding day. A necklace with larger settings is ideal for a lower neckline.
This rose-gold pendant with diamond clusters by Gottlieb & Sons will send your bridesmaids swooning over your fine taste. Seriously though, who needs a pre-wedding spray tan when you’ll already be glowing? Let the jewelry do the talking on your big day!
For the free-spirited boho bride, a simple yet precious design is what you’re after. As a beautiful compliment to a dress with lace details, a romantic bracelet will complete your Coachella-inspired look—minus the EDM music (hopefully).
This delicate diamond bracelet will not only stun your guests on your wedding day but can be worn again over cocktails or dinner with friends. It’s a classy conversation starter to share stories from your happy day.
In Season 5, this lovely bride-to-be tried on a breathtaking dress with intricate detailing along a sweetheart neckline. How divine!
When wearing a dress with a low neck like this one, make sure you play it up with some sparkle. Prong set diamond earrings or a touch of color with classic emerald oval earrings add subtle elegance without being gaudy or overshadowing the dress.
With these masterpieces around your ears, you’ll feel so bridalicious, you’ll want to take at least 100 pre-wedding kissy selfies. And who could blame you?
Love From Both Sides
If Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress taught us anything it’s that all eyes are on both the front of the dress and the rear especially if you have added detailing at the back or a long train as many SYTTD brides favor.
A piece with all over sparkle like this lavish 5 row diamond cuff will blind all eyes as you walk down the aisle—in a good way!
Just Say Yes
Every bride wants the ring to be just as impressive as her dress. The diamond encrusted ring worn by SYTTD bride Persia Zarrabi looked killer with her magnificent cinched cut-out waist dress.
This shared prong straight baguette cluster ring with a double halo by Gottieb & Sons will make you the envy of every bridesmaid. It basically screams to the whole world ‘I’m engaged’, letting you relish in all your glory!
Never settle for anything sub-par for your big day. As “Say Yes to the Dress” teaches us, you’re allowed to be picky (and maybe even a little bratty) for your epic day. So get out there and make some decisions, girl! Good luck.
