Do you need beautiful bridesmaid gifts that won’t break the bank? Want a few stocking stuffers or gift ideas for your friends? We’ve found five gorgeous jewelry gifts from Laura Stark to share with you today! Which one is your favorite?
Are you planning a vintage wedding, or better yet, hoping to cross vintage wedding chair decorations from your to-do list? Maybe that’s a bit specific, but when you find a look you would steal yourself you just can’t help but share it.
For instance, when I spotted these pearls, I knew it would make an elegant chair decoration for a vintage wedding. Now, I’m not crazy enough to suggest or even dream of these pearls as chair decorations for every single chair. That just sounds like a headache.
Instead, I think here less is definitely more! Use the pearls as chair decor solely for the bride and groom’s chairs, or even just for the bride. An elegant, satin-ribbon-ensconced chair sounds like the perfect bridal chair adornment. It would look lovely for the bridal shower, too. I just love this.

First things first: what is a bib necklace? A bib necklace, also known as a statement necklace, is a type of necklace that features a thick section on the front and a thin tie around the back. It sits higher on your neck, so the style resembles a bib. This type of jewelry is considered a statement piece because, well, it’s so large that it will absolutely make a statement when you wear it. Bib necklaces come in all shapes and sizes, with beaded or fabric bib necklaces being the most popular for weddings right now.
How to Wear a Bib Necklace
