Red Carpet on Aisle Style

Hello my dear Brides,

I absolutely loved the Oscars this weekend, the jewels were incredible!  Some of my fave's are listed below and oh! I do hope you enjoy these gorgeous bridal accessories we've selected.  Remember, your wedding is a memory, dress the part, and shine...become a star.

Oscar nominee and winning actresses Lupita Nyong'o, Angelina Jolie, Margot Robbie, Naomi Watts, and Emma Watson all wore the most exquisite jewelry at the awards.   For you we've selected a few special bridal pieces below that matched those beautiful styles.

Starting first with Lupita Nyong'o and Emma Watson, both wore head pieces to adorn their crowns while the accessories accented varying necklines.   A simple addition to add sparkle to any one's beauty and radiate the goddess in all of us.

Lupita Nyong'o wears a dazzling headband with a low neck line baby blue chiffon evening gown.  Have the graceful look with the HIMA headband at Tejani.com and see the other styles to adorn yourself.

Wedding Traditions

Feb 5, 2014 9:42:40 AM // Posted In: 0

Have you ever wondered why a Bride carries a bouquet with her down the aisle? Or why she wears a veil? Originally most traditions derived from warding off spirits and bringing luck into a marriage. However, if you don’t believe in evil spirits, it’s still fun to participate in the traditions of a wedding like throwing the bouquet, wearing a garter, and going on a honeymoon.

At Tejani our favorite tradition derives from an old English Rhyme: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue...”

Every bride gathers these items together to represent a distinct part of the Bride. Something old represents the bride’s past, something new represents her bright future, something borrowed is an item borrowed from a woman who is already happily married to bring the new bride good luck. Something blue signifies fidelity, love and purity of the bride…and for buying Tejani!

 

We have tons to choose from when it comes to earrings! Vintage, drop, classic and romantic blue jewels!

If you want to add a pop of color distinct from your jewelry, then you can’t say no to this clutch! It will encase all of your wedding day essentials while looking super chic in photos!

We’ve even added several “something blue” sets into the mix!

Needless to say Urvi’s been very busy gearing up for 2014 (Tejani’s tenth anniversary!).

From your wedding day to girls night out, our clutches can go anywhere! --We’ve added so many it was hard to choose just one as our favorite!

            After a great debate, the winner had to be this gorgeous patterned silver bag! The details that go into this handbag must be seen in person! The design is meticulous and will have all of your guests jealous and gushing! It’s also made in a hard casing which gives this bag a long lasting quality for your collection.

Next up is our vintage collection! These vintage designs are great for unique brides wishing to have a chic look on their wedding day.

Celebrity Weddings 2014

Jan 10, 2014 3:41:06 PM // Posted In: 0

What will your favorite celebrities wear down the aisle this year?

 

We’ve compiled a list of our 5 favorite celebrities getting married in 2014 and made some jewelry trend predictions based on each starlet’s look!

 

1. Kim Kardashian

Kim usually opts for big studs or chandelier earrings, but we’d love to see her in a classic drop earring, the best of both worlds! We usually see her in things on the trendier side, so our Ranita Classic Openable Bracelet would go great with her up-to-the-minute wedding dress. 

 

2. Lauren Conrad

Despite Lauren Conrad’s bohemian-influenced style, she is very minimal with her jewelry choices. She definitely won’t be opting for any statement pieces on her wedding day. This California native will keep it simple with studs & her favorite, bracelets. If there is one item of jewelry Conrad doesn’t stray from it’s bracelets. We’d love to see her traipse down the aisle with a stacked bangle set by Tejani.  

Stacking bracelets also gives her the option of removing or adding them from wedding to reception! Lauren is a classic romantic sort of bride, but she also loves fun, short dresses, so we think she will opt for two looks at her wedding: a romantic long dress for the ceremony and a playful, short dress at the reception. The stackable bracelets are perfect for either! She could keep it simple with one or two bangles at the ceremony and stack ‘em on for the reception! 

 

3. Leighton Meester

The future Mrs. Adam Brody, actually wears a lot of statement jewelry! However, no piece of jewelry has ever managed to overpower the brunette beauty! Meester isn’t afraid of statement earrings on the red carpet, so we’re sure she’ll be rocking them down the aisle. A charming cuff, like our Arpita Classic Openable Bracelet, will tie the entire look together! If Leighton opts for gold, like she did on the red carpet, she can get any pieces special made in a gold finish at Tejani! 

 

 

4. Scarlett Johansson

Scar Jo isn’t afraid to make a statement on the red carpet. Out of all of these ladies, she’ll be the most likely to rock a statement necklace down the aisle! Johansson is usually seen with an updo on the red carpet, so why not at her wedding? But it’s a special day, so we think she should enhance her I Do Updo with our stunning Ina Classic Hairpins! 

5. Olivia Wilde

You’ll never see the future Mrs. Sudeikis strutting the red carpet without a matching handbag. Ms. Wilde understands the importance that a clutch can play for your wedding day! Sure she won’t hold it down the aisle, but you definitely need a cute bag filled with the essentials that won’t look tacky in a photo! Whether she wears her hair up or down, drop earrings, like our Kate’s Drop Earring, will perfectly frame Olivia Wilde’s striking features.

Destination Weddings

            Can you picture it? Gorgeous sandy beaches, clear blue water, and palm trees galore! Wherever you choose for your destination wedding you’re guaranteed it will be beautiful and memorable!

            Fun, flirty girls with free-spirited attitudes and a taste for adventure often opt for destination weddings. Who can resist the allure of a tropical getaway? The sound of wind and waves at the beach, exciting new experiences and places to explore! Whether you are there for laid-back sun tanning, adventure zip lining or for the festive nightlife there’s a perfect resort out there for you.

And once you’ve found it, the real fun begins! At Tejani we’ve added to our gorgeous collection including one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by destination & resort weddings. From earrings and necklaces to handbags and bangles, the new resorts collection by Tejani is full of fun, charming pieces that will match your beach-y attire!

The dresses for destination weddings are usually light, willowy, sheer & chiffon. (Not many brides want to wear a ball gown on the beach.) So your jewelry needs to match the flirty, free-spirited style. Our colorful, new pieces are perfect for your paradise-inspired look. And since you’re spending money on travel and hotel you’ll want your jewelry to be on point…and easy on your pocket book!

 You’ll be the shining star on the beach wearing Tejani.

The Best of Old Hollywood’s Style Icons

Dec 14, 2013 11:48:18 AM // Posted In: 0

Who can resist the allure of Vintage Hollywood? Glamour, prestige, charm, beauty; take all of these, plus the most romantic era in Hollywood, and the result is one glamorous wedding day!

best of

            If you’re the type of girl who combed through “Marilyn’s Red Diary” and can quote every line from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, then perhaps an Old Hollywood theme is perfect for you!

For your bridal look, stars like Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor embody the look of Old Hollywood glam. The iconic trends of the era included red lips, perfectly shaped eyebrows, a signature do (a la Audrey Hepburn’s French twist), and lots of jewels!

For an evening out, the ladies of the era always chose BIG jewelry.  If the jewels couldn’t be seen from across the room, then they were a definite no! To achieve a similar look, go for statement pieces with lots of shine.

Crystal is Marilyn’s best friend.

 

sophia lauren

Statement earrings and a statement necklace only emphasize Sophia Loren’s amazing bone structure.

 

 Sculptured chandelier earrings & necklaces create an enchanting look for Elizabeth Taylor on the red carpet.

 

Without a Hollywood budget, diamonds may not be within your reach, but with Tejani Jewelry you can achieve the same Old Hollywood bridal look with another gorgeous, long-lasting, quality product -- Australian Crystal.  Never sacrifice quality or taste.

No matter what you choose for your wedding day, wear it with pride.

Bridal Hair Styles: The Perfect Hair For Your Wedding Day

Dec 5, 2013 9:24:38 AM // Posted In: 0

 

 Do you need to wear a hair accessory at your wedding? Of course not, but it definitely helps! Some brides-to-be love hair accessories and its just a part of their everyday style. These girls have a collection of headbands, hairpins, bows & hats! Other brides can’t be bothered, except on their wedding days! All of Tejani’s hair accessories are chic and classy; our accessories are showstoppers, but never overwhelming. Weddings are about bringing two people in love together, not the oversized peacock on the Bride’s head.

NEVER get one-upped by your wedding hair accessory, or any accessory for that matter. Adding hairpins, combs & headbands to dress up your overall hairstyle can be just what you need to complete your look. Accessories for your hair can have an even bigger impact on women with short hairstyles. Shorter hair can limit your wedding hairstyle choices, but luckily hair accessories change all of that! Once you add accessories into the mix you can take any good hairstyle and make it great!

If you choose a veil and find that it is just a bit lacking, combs can be attached to veils and instantly add a bit of shine. 

For low buns add a jeweled comb for a touch of flair.

 

 If you like to keep it simple with long or short straight hair, try adding a long hairpin!

 

Get any up-do sparkling with pretty hairpins.

 

 For daring brides, choose a statement comb!

 

 We have the items for transforming any bridal hairstyle!

5 Ways to Style Your Wedding Gown With Tejani Jewelry

Nov 17, 2013 4:19:19 PM // Posted In: 0

The fun isn’t over when you’ve finally got your wedding dress! It’s only just beginning! To complete your bridal look you still have to choose your shoes, hairstyle and, of course, your jewelry! While there are many different aspects that go into deciding what jewelry is best for your day, such as theme & personal style, there are some rules when it comes to choosing your jewelry. You need a plan of what will work with your dress. This is especially true with girls who choose to order online. But rest assured, if you stick to these simple rules you will look your best on your wedding day.

 

1) For one shoulder/asymmetrical dresses forgo the necklace in exchange for a cute cuff to balance out your bare shoulder.

2) Sweetheart necklines are great for necklace lovers because you can wear a statement necklace even if your bodice has a crystal or beaded pattern like below.

3) For square necklines, you’ll need a good pair of earrings. Try to avoid huge chandelier earrings or little studs that can get hidden in your hair. A short drop earring works best with this neckline.

4)  If you love statement earrings, then I hope you chose a halter dress! You can wear the biggest pair of earrings you like with this style!

5) For a round scoop neckline, try a short chunky necklace with a pendant!
