Wedding Jewelry at Toronto’s Bridal Show
Toronto’s Bridal Show takes place April 7, 8, and 9 at 2017 at the Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place. It’s a great opportunity to check out hundreds of different vendors and to find the perfect pieces for your wedding.
One major purchase that you will likely want to do some research on at the show is wedding jewelry. From wedding bands to bracelets, pendants, necklaces and more, there will be a lot to see and consider. Here are some tips for finding incredible wedding jewelry at Toronto’s Bridal Show.
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix
All of your jewelry doesn’t have to match completely. Don’t be afraid to choose pieces from different collections or different jewelers. Think about the overall look that you’re going for and the “theme” of your wedding. As long as your wedding jewelry fits into that theme and looks good together, you should consider going for it!
Combine Heirlooms with New
As mentioned, don’t be afraid to mix. This includes mixing styles, but it also includes wearing heirloom jewelry that has a special meaning. After all, you’ll want to have your “something borrowed” or “something old.”
Every piece of jewelry that you wear at your wedding doesn’t have to be new. There’s nothing wrong with wearing a few pieces that possess special emotional or sentimental value along with your newer pieces. These vintage aspects can really give you a unique look and one that you’ll treasure forever.
Talk to Jewelers
One of the best parts of attending a Bridal Show is that you get the opportunity to talk to jewelers in person. Don’t pass up this chance! You can learn a lot from talking to a jeweler. Tell him or her what you’re looking for and don’t forget to ask for advice. A good jeweler won’t just want to push a sale. He or she will be genuinely interested in helping you find the perfect wedding rings and other wedding jewelry.
Remember Jewelry Lasts a Lifetime
Whether you’re buying wedding bands, bracelets, necklaces, pendants or any other type of wedding jewelry, remember that this isn’t jewelry that you will only wear once. Sure, you may not want to wear all of your jewelry on a regular basis, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear some of it on special occasions later on.
Of course, your wedding ring will be on your finger for the rest of your life, so you’ll want to make sure that you choose a timeless design that will still look great 30 or 40 years from now. One of the jewelers at Toronto’s Bridal Show can certainly help you pick a wedding band that will simultaneously look modern yet still classic. Talk to them and listen to their advice. A bridal show is a unique opportunity to speak to several jewelry vendors all in one day.
It’s also important to remember that the pictures of your wedding day will be treasured shots that you’ll want to look at over and over for the rest of your life. You’ll be showing these to your children and grandchildren many years from now. That’s another reason why it’s often a good idea to not choose jewelry that is too trendy.
Think of your Overall Look
When you’re buying wedding jewelry, think of how it will go with the rest of your look, especially your wedding gown. Your dress will be one of the highlights of the event, obviously, so you’ll want to make sure that your jewelry accentuates the beauty of the dress. An excellent way to do this is to choose wedding jewelry that goes well with your dress.
It’s a good idea to bring a photo of your dress, either on your phone or from a magazine, to the show. That way you can show the dress to the jewelers in attendance and they can help you with your look. If you haven’t picked out a dress yet, tell the jewelers at the show what sort of style you’re considering and they’ll be able to help you out.
Set a Budget Going In
There will be a lot of different products and vendors at Toronto’s Bridal Show. That means it could be easy to go overboard and throw your budget out the window. Of course, that’s probably not a good idea.
You’ll want to make sure that you set your budget before the show, so you’ll know where to focus your attention. There’s no point to spending time trying on wedding rings that are way out of your price range.
Get the Names and Numbers of Vendors you Like
You might think that you’ll remember the jewelers that you were impressed by, but there is so much going on at Toronto’s Bridal Show that things tend to blur together. The last thing you want is to forget the name of a really great jeweler who sold the perfect wedding rings. Write down names and phone numbers and take pictures as necessary so that you don’t forget details.
