Finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life with is elating. Before you daydream about walking down the aisle, there’s the whole dilemma of planning the perfect proposal. That includes choosing an engagement ring symbolizing your desire to tie the knot. Though some couples now prefer to get engagement watches instead and you might want to do the same.
The pandemic brought about a lot of firsts, and matching wedding face masks are one of them. This takes the place of the “something new” the bride is expected to wear as part of a wedding tradition. A pearl-embellished chain attached to the mask would be a nice accessory. It also allows for easier mask handling when it’s time for the couple to kiss.
Aside from matching face masks, engagement watches are another trending accessory on Lyst. Interest in couple watches on the website has spiked by 42% in the last year. This seems to be the new approach of asking for your partner’s hand in marriage. In case you don’t find the engagement ring you’ve been looking for, add this to your shopping list.
New Normal Wedding Attire
Zoom Weddings are losing their novelty and guests can’t wait to attend face-to-face social gatherings again. Ques at the boutique won’t be happening anytime soon, though, as people still prefer to shop online. Searches for wedding dresses and suits have increased, with more gender-fluid fashion taking the stage. Groom skirts and bridal pants are going to wow the guests at the next reception.
Lyst’s 2021 Wedding Report sees couples opting for bold and contemporary pieces to celebrate the occasion. They’ve also seen an increase in searches for bridal and silk gloves to match their wedding outfits. Whether this is a Bridgterton-inspired or COVID-related fashion trend is the real question.
