The 2019 Engagement Ring Trends We Love

The 2019 Engagement Ring Trends We Love

boulevard bride

Pear Shaped

Pear shaped engagement rings have returned and we are totally here for it! The pear shape diamond was first invented in 1475 by Lodewyk Van Bercken, and has gone in and out of trend over the years. The shape became wildly popular in the mid-1900s when Frank Sinatra proposed to Mia Farrow with a 9 carat pear shaped engagement ring. Now this shape is back and bigger than ever (literally), and has been seen on Paris Hilton, Cardi B., Ariana Grande, Katherine Heigl, and Sophie Turner.

Yellow Gold

Gold is classic. Gold is timeless. While yellow gold engagement rings never truly go out of style, we are definitely seeing a resurgence in women who are opting for yellow gold over white gold or platinum. This trend can be worn in a various amount of styles; ranging from a simple gold band with an oval diamond or a halo ring adorned with multiple stones. The options are endless.

Three Stone

The three stone engagement ring is seeing a resurgence in popularity due to the engagement and marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Prince Harry proposed to Meghan with a three stone engagement ring that featured gorgeous diamonds from the royal collection. This style is not only beautiful, but is also a beautiful symbol of the past, present, and future of your relationship.

Colored Stones

Gone are the days of an engagement ring being just a diamond. Many women are branching out from the traditional stone, and choosing sapphire, emeralds, pink diamond, blue-grey moissanite, and so many more. This is a great way to show your personal style or to commemorate a special memory by getting the stone for the month you met or fell in love.

Oval

If there is one trend that is definitely universal, it’s the oval engagement ring. The oval engagement ring is a classic shape that will be in-style for years to come. It is also a perfect shape because you can combine multiple trends. You can have a yellow gold band with an oval diamond, a three stone ring with oval stones, or even an engagement ring with a colored gemstone with an oval cut.

So You Booked a Bridal Appointment . . .

So You Booked a Bridal Appointment…

Now What?

Congratulations!! You are one step closer to finding your wedding dress! Pretty surreal right?! This blog post will help you get ready for the most important shopping day of your life!

Where do I begin? 

We get it.. shopping for your wedding dress can be a bit stressful. At Boulevard Bride, our goal is to make wedding dress shopping a truly enjoyable experience for you and your guests. Below are our top 3 tips for making this day as stress free as possible.

 

Only Invite People Whose Opinion Truly Matters to You

We see it time and time again.. a bride who walks in with every bridesmaid, friend, family member, and in-law she could think of. And then 5 minutes later we also see the bride’s eyes widen in panic as we ask her about her dream dress and hear opinions from everyone but the bride.

For this reason, we suggest that you invite no more than 5 guests. This day is about you finding your wedding dress, not finding a dress that other people want you to wear.

 

Pinterest. Pinterest. Pinterest.

You heard that right.. We’re giving you permission to scroll on Pinterest for as long as your heart desires!

Save photos of dresses that you like. Save photos of dresses that you don’t like. Save photos of the type of train you like. Save photos of necklines and waistlines. Save photos of everything that you think will help us find you your dream wedding dress. We love it when brides come in with a ton of pictures! Seeing what you like and what you don’t like helps us to weed through the hundreds of dresses that we have in store.

 

Come Prepared to Say Yes

We can’t even begin to tell you how many times an appointment has started with the words “I’m just looking today,” and ended with the words “I’m saying yes to my dress!”. Wedding dress shopping is emotional; even for the girls who hate shopping. When you put on your dress, you’ll know. And there’s no need to look at others because nothing will compare once you find the perfect one.

Should I Bring Anything?

Strapless bra. Nude Panties. Spanx.            A Smile. Confidence.

We suggest that you bring a strapless bra, nude underwear, and a smile! Some girls also like to wear Spanx. 

Please do not bring heels… you will be stepping in and out of dresses and we do not want to damage the gowns.

“I know you suggest only bringing a few people, but I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.”

If you’re worried about some people feeling left out, you can bring them to your bridal gown pick-up appointment. This is a great way to make sure that they feel just as special as the guests who were at your original appointment. During your bridal gown pick-up, they will be the first people to see you in YOUR wedding dress.

“What happens when I say yes?”

We party! Joking . . . kind of

When you say Yes to the Dress we will have you ring our cowbell (it’s tradition!).

Once you’ve rung the cowbell and gotten any final pictures in your dress, we will have you put your normal clothes on again so we can take your measurements. We will take your bust, waist, and hip measurements and match these measurements with the closest dress size.

After this we will take an “I Said Yes to the Dress” picture for social media and have you sign our Yes Dress!

Last but not least, we will explain your dress size and get you all rung up! 60% is due at this time. The rest will be due on the day you pick up your dress.

 

Any other questions?

If you have more questions about your appointment please feel free to call us, email us, or stop in!

Let’s Talk Tuxedos

Let's Talk Tuxedos

So we know you may not get a lot of say in most of the wedding planning … but, the tuxedo consultation is your turn to shine!

What is a tuxedo consultation? 

During a Tuxedo Consultation, you and your fiancé will sit down with one of our trained tuxedo rental specialists to pick out your ensemble for your wedding day. We will talk about your wedding colors and venue, and see if you have a particular look in-mind. This is YOUR wedding, so don’t be shy! We don’t want to show you a light grey suit if you have your mind set on a traditional black tuxedo.

 

the consult

We know it can be intimidating for a guy to walk into a bridal shop, so we strive to make the consultation as quick and painless as possible for you. Scroll down to get a feel of what your consultation will look like.

Step #1

Schedule the appointment. This can be done by calling us at 636-561-4030 or visiting our website www.boulevardbride.com

Step #2

Show up on-time with an idea of what color suit or tuxedo you want to wear. (If you have no clue what color you want, that’s okay too.)

Step #3

First we will get your information and write down the names of your groomsmen, ring bearer(s), ushers, dads, etc. (Hint: If you have 6 full ensemble rentals, you get yours for FREE!)

Step #4

Now for the fun part…  We will begin with book 1 which has all of our suit and tuxedo options. Tell us what you like and what you don’t like. Once we choose your favorites, we’ll narrow it down until we find the one.

Step #5

Now that you have the suit picked out, we can move on to choosing any tie, vest, pocket square, suspenders, shirt, and shoes you may want. (Don’t feel overwhelmed, once you know the color you’re matching, it’s pretty easy).

Step #5

Once we know what you are wearing, we can decide what the rest of your bridal party will wear.

Step #7

We’re almost finished! It’s time to get measured. During this step we will take various measurements and have you try on a sample coat.

Step #8

It’s time to make your down-payment. (Remember, if you have 6 full-ensemble rentals yours is free.) The down payment is 60%. The final payment is due when you pick up your rental.

Step #9

Last but definitely not least, it’s time for you to tell all your groomsmen, ring bearers, ushers, and dads to head on in to get measured. They can come on their lunch-break, after/before work, or on the weekends. Their measurements will take no more than 15 minutes.
