You may or may not have heard of a Bridal Pin before, but, the truth is, this little piece of jewellery is this year’s absolute bridal ‘must-have’.

Personally, I had never heard of Bridal Pins until one day, in 2017, I  was looking to buy a ‘Something Blue’ gift for a friend who was about to get married. I came across a few nicely decorated safety pins which I thought looked pretty and would make a lovely gift. However, I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for – I wanted a pin with pearls to match my friend’s Bridal jewellery. I also wanted it to look contemporary and minimal, without too many charms on – so I decided to make one myself.

And that was it! I was hooked… I loved the whole process of sourcing the materials, crafting the pin, preparing the gift wrapping and finally gifting it to my friend… so much so that I decided to make more. Since then I have made almost 400 bridal pins in various designs and colours and I want to share my love for them and explain why I think Bridal Pins are so special!

So, here are a few reasons:

  1. It offers the Bride her Something Blue.
  2. It can be added to her bridal bouquet or purse as a lucky charm. Also, if it’s made in the wedding theme colour, it can tie everything together.
  3. It can be used in an emergency as a safety pin to hold part of the wedding dress (veil, train or shawl) together without looking cheap or tasteless.
  4. It can include memory, family charms or rings so the Bride has something personal with her during her special day.
  5.  It makes a lovely keepsake that can be treasured long after the wedding.

Whether you make one yourself or not, a Bridal Pin is a unique and thoughtful gift… a little bridal must-have detail that means so much.
