Incorporating Lockets into Your Wedding Day Fashion

Lockets not only hold emotional value but can also add a beautiful look to your wedding attire. Wearing a locket with a photo of someone special who can’t be with you to celebrate with you can create a sense of their presence throughout the day. Lockets can also be worn as a subtle nod to the memory of a loved one, allowing them to be a part of the celebration in a meaningful way. The possibilities for incorporating lockets into your wedding day ensemble are endless and can help make your special day all the more memorable. The Locket Sisters has many lockets to choose from including silver, gold, and even 14k gold. With options for men, women, and kids, you’re sure to find the perfect piece to keep your loved one near.

Ways to Display a Locket

There are many creative ways to display lockets on your wedding day. If you’re not wanting to make a locket for the jewelry piece to accompany your beautiful dress, that’s ok! One popular way to display a locket is by attaching it to a bouquet or boutonniere. This adds a personal touch to your florals and allows your loved one to be with you as you walk down the aisle. You can also attach a locket to your garter or choose one of our lapel pins.

Another way to display a locket is by attaching to your wedding dress. You can have the locket sewn onto your dress or add it as a charm to a zipper pull or button. This provides a subtle yet meaningful tribute to your loved one and can serve as a reminder of their presence during your special day.

If you choose to display your locket as a piece of jewelry, we have many pendants, and locket sizes to choose from as well as a variety of chain lengths. This will keep the locket close to your heart and allow you to feel the presence of your loved one throughout the day. The Bangle is also a fabulous option for a wedding day accessory.

No matter how you choose to display your locket, the important thing is to make it a meaningful tribute to your loved one. Your wedding day is a celebration of love, and incorporating a locket into your or your groom’s attire is a beautiful way to honor those who have passed away.
