“June” and “Bride” go hand in hand. As June approaches wedding bells will be heard ringing in the air from the smallest of small towns to major-est of major Metropolitans! Whether you’ve dreamed about it from childhood or not, it is common knowledge that the brides gown is the center piece of a wedding….oh and of course the life long bond of honor, commitment and the love shared between the bride and groom.
Bridal dresses have seen their fair share of change from generation to generation. Everything from delicate and demure Empire waists of the Napoleonic era; heavily starched, stiff and oh so wide crinolines and hoops of the 1860’s; voluminous Victorian bustles, bows and ruffles of the 1870’s/80’s; the puffy shoulder pads and miles of lace of the Belle Epoque ‘Gay Nineties’ era to the daring (‘Oh my, she’s baring her knees’) drop waists of the Flapper Set of the 1920’s. From traditional to fantasy, these past eras offer today’s brides-to-be endless ideas and options for her trousseau.
However, today’s current trends offer a peek into what could be a ‘new’ form of tradition. Millennium brides-to-be, like Jennifer Aniston, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Olivia Wilde, or Marisa Tomei are sure to make a statement as they take their turn walking down the catwalk, ooops, I mean ‘down the aisle’. Call these styles bold or risqué, yet albeit stylish, these trending eye catching ensembles are changing the way we look at bridal gowns by incorporating pant-suits, peek-a-boo lace bodices, deep-V cut backs and chic black. Definitely a new sense of romance for the bride of tomorrow. Whatever your ultimate decision may be, you can rest assure on one thing, your jewelry will be the piece de resistance. Los Angeles PR Firm, P3R’s fine jewelry client, Trumpet & Horn, is sure to bridge this gap because it is purely a line where vintage meets modern. Rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and brooches in Old Mine Cut Diamonds, Sapphires, Emeralds and other precious stones are available in a variety of classic shapes from Marquise, Princess, Asscher, Pear, Oval and Cushion. Every piece in the Trumpet & Horn collection has a unique, never-ending story and will surely be a coveted heirloom by the little gifts that the stork is sure to bring!
