80 THEWEDDINGPLANNERMAG.COM Mixed Metals: Stackables & Wedding Bands by Jennifer Hill Melendez Diamonds Direct Forever/ Lifestyle PLAN YOUR WEDDING I t's the year of mixed metals! The trend that began in fashion jewelry is now asserting itself in wedding and fine jew- elry. While couples used to stick to matching metals for their bands, we now see many us- ing a mix of metals and two-tone rings. Brides are breaking up their rings with a stackable, alternate gold band between their engage- ment and wedding rings. We've even started to see a discernable trend toward multiple stackable bands in mixed metals in place of an engagement ring or anniversary band! Grooms are also in on the mixed metal game these days with two-tone bands. If you just can't choose between white, rose, and yellow gold, now you can have your (wedding) cake and eat it too! Gift Guide You've got your best girls, and they've got their beautiful dresses. All the decisions are made and the plans are in place. What's left? The final, defining details, like what to get the ladies standing by your side. Jewelry has long been a go-to choice, in part because it can be worn on the wedding day. Choosing jewelry for your bridal party can be overwhelming! Do you invest in formal, special occasion jewlery, or something a bit more casual that can be worn daily? I don't think you can make a wrong decision. No matter what you choose, your bridesmaids will be sure to cherish your thoughful gift. Whatever you decide, our jew- elry experts can help you choose the right gift for your bridal party. Something for the Big Day I love the idea of giving the bridesmaids something with a little extra sparkle for special occasion wear. Our Diamonds by the Yard collection combines a hint of glitter with an elegant and understated look. With the options of long necklaces, single pendants, bracelets and earrings, there's something for every bridesmaid with Diamonds by the Yard. Something for Everyday The modern minimalist look is in! If you're looking for a gift that can be worn after the wedding day, these refined, elegant disk pen- dants make the perfect gift. Great for layering or beautiful stand-alone pieces, disk pendants go with everything from a chiffon dress to a basic tee. They're sure to become a jewelry staple your bridesmaids can wear day to day. The Perfect Mix Maps by A. Jaffe are a perfect mix of both luxury and everyday elements, and an incred- ibly special gift for your wedding party. Each piece is a small map, marked with a diamond pinpoint to symbolize a specific point of you - the place you became friends, the wedding lo- cation, or another place close to your hearts. The pendants can be made in white, yellow, or rose gold as well as sterling silver, and the cufflink maps are great groomsmen's gifts! Leigh Skaggs Photography
