H. Samuel Wedding Guide: An Introduction
Have you been planning your wedding since you
were two years old? Did it never cross your mind until he popped the question?
Even if you have seen Four Weddings and a Funeral seventeen times, you probably won't
be prepared for the planning
and preparation that goes into a full-on wedding.
Make sure you show your wedding party how grateful you are for their help and support. H.Samuel offers engraving on a fabulous range of gifts which are perfect for bridesmaids and ushers, as well as page boys, and the best man. We can even gift package your personalised gift so that it's all ready for you to present on the big day.
Not everyone goes for a big white wedding in a chocolate-box-pretty church - your first step is deciding what's your style. It will be one of the most symbolic and memorable days of your life, so it pays to spend a bit of time thinking about what suits you and your partner. Would you like a traditional wedding breakfast, or do you really want an ultra-hip urban brunch? If you're not sure where to start, how about following in the footsteps of ever-glamorous celebrities' weddings?
Big white meringue, or sleek designer gown? Whatever your choice of dress, you will probably want to accessorize with the perfect pieces of jewellery. Make this bit fun - let us tell you what not to wear with your chosen style of dress, then browse our enormous selection of wedding day jewellery. Don't even think about wearing a pendant with that neckline.
Before all of this of course, comes the most important piece of jewellery you'll ever own. Whether your husband-to-be presents you with a stunner or you go and pick out a ring together, you need to be sure it's a piece of jewellery you'll love forever. Most rings are made of beautiful, durable metals like gold or platinum. The majority of brides these days already have a stunning engagement ring by the time they reach the altar, but why not express your individuality with something unconventional? Who says it has to be a ring? White gold and diamond jewellery is fantastically fashionable right now, and goes with everything, so it's a sure-fire winner in the gift stakes. When it comes to buying diamonds, the choice can be overwhelming, but we can advise you in-store or online. It's worth bearing in mind, as you're choosing the engagement ring, that it will be sitting next to a wedding ring sooner or later. Once you have made your decision, make sure you know how to care for your diamond to keep it in tip-top condition.
When it comes to wedding rings, don't feel restricted to the simple classic bands. These are hugely popular and timeless, but if classic is just not your thing, why not use your wedding ring to make a statement about who you are? Titanium wedding rings are perfect for combining a classic style with a funky, modern material, whereas gold wedding rings are the traditional choice. White gold rings are just right for people who prefer silver to gold jewellery, but want a hard-wearing wedding ring that will last a lifetime.
