Wedding Day Watches For Her

Many brides are beginning to accessorise on their wedding days with more than just simple bracelets, earrings, or necklaces. If you’re looking for the perfect timepiece for your wedding day, there are some great options out there.

Wedding Day Watches For Her


Choosing a classic, all-white watch will reflect a sophisticated and traditional look to match your pristine, white gown. With a white leather band, white face, and gold accents, a watch like this will lay softly on your wrist and not draw attention to itself.


If you are still looking for your something blue, try a soft blue watch in a slim style. With a satin finish or rose gold accents, this watch will pop against your gown. A delicate strap with pearl dials will add a vintage touch.


There’s nothing wrong with wanting to sparkle on your wedding day. If that’s the case, choose a watch that is covered in crystals. You’ll look stunning and glamorous, and your watch will match your new ring.


If you don’t want bling, but you still want to sparkle, find an elegant watch that has an understated strap, but a little bit of glitz on the face. You can find a watch that dances against your skin while still highlighting your dress.


Brushed silver or nickel is chic and sophisticated without detracting from your other accessories. If you don’t want to sparkle, but still want something gorgeous against your wrist, try a stainless band with a jewellery clasp in a decorative shape.

Rose Gold

Rose gold jewellery is delicate and feminine. It continues to grow in popularity, and it looks luxurious and stunning. Rose gold looks especially lovely if your gown or your wedding colours have a hint of pink in them. Create harmony in your attire by wearing a rose gold watch on your wedding day.

Lace and Florals

Many watches feature faces with elegant lace or floral backdrops. Choose something with a white backdrop for an elegant look, or find a floral backdrop that matches your centrepieces to create continuity in your look.

Get Creative

There are many types of watch designs available, and no matter what look you’re trying to achieve, the perfect watch is out there. From band materials and thicknesses to elegant faces and hands, you’re bound to find the perfect watch for you.

Wearing a watch on your wedding day shows a certain level of sophistication and elegance that you can’t get from any other accessory. Watches have not traditionally been a part of the typical wedding style, but they seem to be finding a place in more and more weddings, and they look fantastic.

So, you have had your big day. It disappeared in a flash of love, romance, fun, a probably one to many cocktails. It was everything you dreamed it would ever be. The fun or stress of wedding planning is over, then you return from your honeymoon to see all of your wedding photographs. Seeing them all brings back memories of how fabulous your day was, now it’s time to find a way to display your most treasured images.

When I got married, I didn’t have a proper photographer, although now I really wish I did. We just didn’t have the budgets. However I have got some amazing images from some very talented photographers. As soon as I saw a black and white image of us both stood about to say our vows, I was in love with it. It’s been blown up and added to a large frame we were given for a wedding present. It has been in our living room on the wall ever since.
