Bride On Time
Being a bride undoubtedly brings plenty of excuses to indulge in lavish treats, with endless rounds of exquisite cake tasting, beautiful dress fittings, and dream locations to explore. But one area often overlooked by those pampering themselves in preparation for their big trip down the aisle is that of wrist wear, with the focus often being on a certain other item of bling. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all about the engagement sparkler, but why can’t a girl have both?
Investing in a special timepiece to mark this important time in your life is the perfect way to ensure that all of the memories you make during the months of wedding planning, the big day itself, and the dream honeymoon live on long after the confetti has been swept away. We may not be able to live the dream of being a bride forever, but a beautiful watch can transport you back to the magic of those moments every time you look at your wrist.
Buying a high-end watch is a milestone in its own right, and through the Bride on Time series for the Hello! Magazine Bridal Hub, we’ll be guiding you through the process of purchasing the ideal watch for the bride, the groom, and all of those momentous occasions that you’ll face during your married life together. (Did someone say ‘push present’…?)
