Wedding season is upon us and that means diving right into everything wedding planning entails. Speaking from experience; it’s quite overwhelming, as I’m sure most of you know! There are so many details to be considered, including dressing your bridesmaids from head to toe! Sometimes, well actually, most of the time, that can be a daunting task! Realizing this frustration, I have partnered with Bailey Banks & Biddle and Honora to hopefully ease the stress when looking for classy jewelry for you and your bridesmaids.
I know the last thing on most bride’s minds are the thoughts of having to not only dress themselves, but actually dress the rest of their wedding party. I know this was extremely stressful for me, mainly because I had planned my wedding without a planner. Of course, the wedding had to be absolutely perfect so I took on the task of finding everyone’s gowns, shoes, jewelry and was even nice enough to purchase it all for everyone! Cost is a huge factor when it comes to committing to be in someone’s bridal party. I mean, you’ve racked up a huge tab by the time it’s all said and done, especially if you are traveling, so any financial break is a lifesaver!
With all of that being said, I wanted to share my experience with Honora, sold at Bailey Banks & Biddle. If you are planning for your wedding or are going to be the Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor or a bridesmaid, you obviously want to look extremely chic and stunning without breaking the bank. I stumbled upon Honora when I was hosting an event with Bailey Banks & Biddle and was so impressed with how gorgeous the jewelry is and how reasonable the price point is. So, when BB&B asked if I wanted to be a part of their bridesmaid’s catalog, I was totally in! We shot a variety of pieces that flatter all types of bridesmaid’s gowns.
For this catalog, I shot in one of my favorite bridesmaid dresses! Has anyone EVER said that?? A favorite bridesmaid dress?! Aren’t they always hideous?? Anyway, my cousin picked out the best Vera Wang dress for all of her bridesmaids. I thought this long, black gown would be perfect for this shoot. From the plunging back with the bow to the flowing body, this was a dress I felt that would show this jewelry off perfectly. We shot a few different jewelry options with this dress and I absolutely loved them all. My favorite being the long, wrap necklace that I wore backwards to show off the unique back of this dress. That’s the great thing about this jewelry; the versatility. You can mix and match most of the Honora collection and even wear necklaces as bracelets or a necklace backwards to show off a sultry back!
From being a bride, a bridesmaid and about to be another bride, I understand the need for gorgeous, affordable jewelry. I mean, just think of how many photos your bridal party will be in! Most of the time, I feel like wedding jewelry can be pretty tacky and cheap, simply because people just don’t spend the time to find something that would look lovely. Not only is Honora elegant, the designs have a very modern twist to them too. They definitely aren’t mother’s or grandmother’s old pearls!
If you are looking for something beautiful to wear to your own wedding, to gift your bridesmaids or even just to have as a your go-to set of pearls, considering checking out Honora. You will be pleasantly surprised at the quality and how stunning the designs are. If I’m a fan, you will definitely be a fan!
