On March 2nd, we will be hosting a Boutique Bridal Showcase. Thank you to Braunschweiger Jewelers, a participant at the showcase for this current information about wedding rings.
Couples today are putting their individual stamp on modern wedding plans, starting with the choice of engagement rings. No longer are brides accepting what ring is given to them by their future spouses; rather, they are actively engaged in the purchasing decision and letting it be known what they want to wear on their fingers. Consequently, the traditional round solitaire ring and the beloved three stone rings are often being replaced by rings with boldly colored gems, unusually shaped stones and creative artisan designs.
Our Boutique Bridal Showcase is coming soon, and to get you ready, we're sharing wedding trend tips from some of our top vendors who you'll meet at the show! Today's blog is from Julie Conley of Warren Country Events in Warren, New Jersey. Enjoy!
I have been planning weddings for over 25 years. I started as a floral designer and the evolution to wedding planner was effortless. I instinctively knew how to synchronize design with planning because I realized that most of my clients needed help pulling it all together and orchestrating all the details and best of all, I Ioved it.
