You’re in love. In the words of Beyoncé, you like it and you want to put a ring on it. Exactly what finger you put that ring on may be a little bit of a mystery to you. Right hand, left hand, engagement ring first, wedding band first? Fear not! We’ll explore the customs, traditions and trends that determine how you and/or your partner will wear the all important ring.
The leaves are red and the frost is here, which can only mean one thing: we’re knee-deep in proposal season! Here at Hatton we’re working our way through all the important bits to know if you’re planning an engagement and wedding. Our Man’s Guide series is designed to get you in the know about everything – picking the ring, proposing, planning the honeymoon… And now, an often-overlooked big pick – the groom’s ring.
Let’s talk tradition. When it comes to wedding planning, the groom customarily plans elements like band hire and transport. Nowadays, it's more likely you'll want to combine forces when it comes to planning the big things. Organising the perfect honeymoon experience will take some of the pre-wedding pressure off your partner and put the two of you on equal footing from day one.
Firstly, you’re in luck – honeymoons these days don’t have to fit the criteria of sun, sea and sand, and can be in all shapes and forms. Research shows that younger generations generally prefer intimate, personalised gestures than traditional ones (definitely when it comes to engagement rings and proposals) and the honeymoon is no exception. Here’s what you can do to give your bride the ultimate newlywed getaway!
While nothing sparkles like a diamond, wedding fashion is the next best thing. Here at Hatton we want you to be in the know about all things engagement, and the most-important purchase (after the rings, of course) is the wedding dress.
So, if you’re deep in the midst of bridal gown indecision, let us fill you in on the biggest trends to come off the bridal runway this year. You might find something that inspires!
Fashion Week hit New York runways on the 7 September and we’re loving the stunning array of white dresses on display! New York essentially is Fashion Week, with all the big names in design setting trends for the coming seasons. Here’s some of our favourite gowns, an aesthetic mix of full-skirt, flowing, mid-length and more. Who knows – maybe it will inspire your very own wedding wear!
Everyone knows that the wedding dress equates to the ‘wow!’ moment; a bride wants to feel comfortable, confident and 100% beautiful in their day-of-dress. There are so many styles of outfit to suit the shape and personality of the wearer – yet admittedly, too much choice can be stressful and overwhelming. If you’re not totally clued-up on what fit, length, skirt (so many factors!) is your ideal, you’re not alone; a good designer understands that not every bride is a walking fashion guru!
For the past 100 years the majority of people have chosen a wedding ring which matches their engagement ring, but it has not always been the case…
As we relaunch Hatton by Design’s website, we’re proud to show you how to find your perfect engagement ring in three easy steps.
