Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend

          So you have the perfect man; the man you want to spend the rest of your life with, and you know the question is going to pop up soon!  The question is, have you thought about or hinted to what ring you would like to wear for the rest of your life?  We are counting down the Top 10 2014 popular engagement ring trends to help spark an idea on what fits perfectly to who you are!
1.       The Cushion-Cut
The Cushion cut is a beautiful soft rounded-edge cut diamond that seems to be grabbing the attention of women everywhere!  This beautiful yet simple ring is absolutely romantic, and we think it is brilliant for any bride-to-be!

2.       The Halo
The charming and stunning Halo Cut will be trending for years to come!  Not only does the center diamond appear larger thanks to the smaller diamonds surrounding it, but it adds sparkle that no one will be able to look away from!  It is absolutely breathtaking and is something for everyone to awe over!

3.       Yellow/Rose Gold
While platinum/silver has seemed to be the most popular choice by women in recent years, the yellow and rose gold bands seem to be making a comeback.  With gold jewelry on the rise, brides want their ring to match this trend as well!  It is very original and you can be the trend-setter for choosing the yellow or rose gold band! 

4.       The Emerald Cut
For you Vintage brides, the Emerald Cut could be the perfect style of ring for you!  With the rectangular shape, you can go in basically any direction with the style of band.  The Emerald Cut is completely versatile and captures a timeless beauty. 

5.       The East-West Cut
Do you want something different than all the rest?  Well the East-West cut could be the perfect fit for you!  This style not only creates a unique engagement ring, but it makes it appear to be a larger stone!  We are in love with this trend and think it is absolutely gorgeous!

6.       Art Deco
Another style that is unique yet gaining popularity, it the Art Deco Cut.  Celebrities like Ashlee Simpson and Scarlett Johansson are really bringing this trend to life!  It is absolutely breathtaking and no ring looks exactly the same depending on how your fiancĂ© styles it!  This would be another ring perfect for you Vintage Brides! 

7.       Adding Color
This has been around for quite some time, but we believe it will continue and grow in 2014! This is a beautiful and unique way to customize your ring to really show your personality!  Yellows, pinks, blues and greens seem to be the trending colors right now, and we could not be more excited about it!

8.       Multiple Metals
Brides are not just set-in-stone on just choosing one type of metal on their engagement rings- many are choosing two and even more!  The most popular combination this year is white gold and rose gold.  This ring creates a unique effect that makes it far more versatile, so you’ll have an easier time matching it to your other jewelry!

9.       Personalize By Engraving
With your one-of-a-kind relationship, don’t you want to capture this by making your ring one-of-a-kind as well?  Well by personalizing your ring by engraving it, it can be completely yours.  Whether it’s “I Love You”, the date of your marriage, or an inside joke, it truly makes it special and something of your very own that you can appreciate forever!

10.   Round Diamond With Cushion Shaped Halo
Last but not least, we are combining three of the trends into one ring!  This beautiful look is becoming more and more popular and seems to be the ring-of-choice with most brides this year!  At our recent Bridal Expo, we looked at every Bride-to-be’s ring and saw this most often.  We think it is absolutely magnificent and will capture anyone’s attention!

2014 Top 5 Theme Wedding Trends

From the simple and savvy, to the grand and dramatic, 2014 weddings seem to cover all realms of themes and the Brides themselves.  Newly engaged and not sure what to do? Well not to worry, we have the Top 5 Wedding Theme Trends for 2014 that might spark an idea for your dream day!

Vintage Is Here To Stay

That’s right!  The vintage theme is still going strong in 2014!  The simple, savvy and very creative Brides have kept this theme trending and are doing it better than ever!  With the elegance of the neutral tones, the simplicity of the venue, and the unique use of old furniture and props, who could blame a Bride for choosing this breathtaking theme for their very own wedding day.  Vintage Weddings bring together the old and the new, and that is something everyone can appreciate!

 Bohemian Chic

2014 Bride’s seem to be in love with the whimsical details of a Bohemian themed wedding.  From the flowing dresses and the floral headpieces, to the use of wild flowers and neutral tones, the relaxed bride and groom are grasping this theme and running with it. 

With the Bohemian Chic theme, it may be very simple to find your venue… just go exploring!  Whether it is in the middle of a forest or a large open field, Bohemian Brides are taking these spots that are not commonly used, and creating them into a beautiful and unique space.  With touches of lace, neutral tones, floral and candlelight, a blank canvas can turn into a masterpiece.


The Brides this year are really going with neutral tones and simplicity for their wedding and that doesn’t fall short for the Rustic/Country theme that is still trending!  The old rustic barn combined with neutral tones, lighting, lace and floral really brings an element of romance that not many themes capture.  As you see below, the old rustic barn can bring a bride’s vision to life, no matter how she pictures it!    

Bright and Beautiful

With Chicago being the “frozen tundra” this year, Brides are overwhelmingly excited for their summer wedding and are doing it with very vibrant colors!  Every color in the rainbow is being used in the brightest way and it is making us desire the warm temperatures of summer!  Everything from the linen and floral, to the dresses and props, these blues, oranges, pinks, yellows and greens are being used in a spectacular way!   Trust us, with these bright combinations, this will be something you or your guests will never forget!

Drama, Drama, Drama

Want that WOW factor?  Well this year, Brides are making every detail something to WOW about.  And how are they doing this you ask?  Oversized floral (trees even), crystals everywhere, lighting strung from the ceiling and bold dark tones will do the trick!  Even the venue itself will awe the guests!  Grand ballrooms with high ceilings, spaces filled with oversized windows that unveil a breathtaking view, and elegant tents that are thin enough to see the stars are some dramatic venues to consider if this theme fits you!  The Dramatic Theme makes a bold statement and it entails a lot of detail, but if done right, it can turn into the dream wedding you have always envisioned.
