Celeb Stylist Micaela Erlanger Shares 4 Honeymoon Style Collections for the Platinum Bride
Every bride wants her ‘bridal moment’ to reflect her individual style and personality, not only on her wedding day but also on her honeymoon. An engagement ring is the bride’s first opportunity to begin curating her personalized style for her wedding moments. Her ring inspires her unique bridal style consisting of cohesive and original looks. We’ve chosen four beautiful platinum rings that align with four different bridal styles: Classic, Glamorous, Luxe Boho, and Vintage, and asked Platinum Jewelry Ambassador and Celebrity Stylist Micaela Erlanger to style each bride with the perfect honeymoon outfit for travel, day activities, and date night.
The Classic Bride
First, we have the Classic Bride. Her ring will typically look similar to this Forevermark platinum engagement ring, featuring a cushion cut center diamond and split shank setting. This Classic Bride may find herself honeymooning on the Amalfi Coast after tying the knot. For a travel day, she keeps it sleek and simple in a black jumpsuit topped with a black duster to stay cozy and warm. She uses a black bag for essential items and completes her look with canvas espadrilles. For the daytime, she’ll sport a black and yellow floral one-piece swimsuit under a breezy white button down cover-up. She accessorizes with tan leather mules, a wicker clutch and a straw hat because a classic bride needs quality staples.
After a day by the sea, she heads back to her honeymoon suite to freshen up for date night. A striped cotton midi dress with puffed sleeves along with some strappy orange sling back sandals and boxy white leather bag is the perfect classic look with a touch of personality to stroll the streets of Positano. “Stripes are a great statement for a night out, and the brilliant and versatile white color of her platinum ring will complement all of these accessories perfectly,” Micaela says.
The Glam Bride
A Glamorous Bride spares nothing! Her left ring finger will surely be adorned with platinum and diamonds, just like this Ritani platinum ring featuring a double halo framing a beautiful round center diamond. Similarly to her engagement ring, her travel and outfit choices must make a statement, so there’s no better place to honeymoon than Dubai. This pale pink silk set is her go-to travel outfit as it keeps her feeling luxurious without sacrificing much-needed comfort for a long trip. She pairs her set with white woven leather mules and a white fringe bag.
For daytime, she wears a V-neck red midi dress with voluminous sleeves and carries a drawstring bag adorned with tortoise shell droplets. She keeps it simple on the feet with canvas wedge espadrilles. The bold poppy-colored dress along with her platinum and diamond engagement ring is the perfect recipe to stand out while sightseeing and shopping in the city. At night, she brings the glamour to the next level in a halter wrap gown with a fringe finish that falls and drapes beautifully as she walks to dinner. She finishes the look with a printed chiffon scarf and metallic leather mules. “There’s nothing better than having your life-long wedding jewelry as your staple item, and it’s even better if it’s set in platinum,” shares Micaela. “Platinum makes your diamonds appear more sparkly and it’s more durable than other metals which is the perfect match to your bling!”
The Boho Bride
Our Luxe Boho Bride could be found wearing this stunning, nature-inspired platinum Jasmine Diamond engagement ring by Brilliant Earth on her honeymoon to Greece. She elevates a tie dye shirt by pairing it with a chic and breezy white, lace-trimmed midi skirt for her travel day. Woven slides and an appropriately embroidered woven tote complete this look. The Jasmine diamond ring’s delicate details shine when paired with an effortless look.
For a daytime look, she wears a powder blue sundress with tassel trim over a blue tie dye, tie-front bikini and carries an on-trend bamboo cross body bag. Blue-toned separates inspired by the Santorini streets will keep her chic on the beach in the Mediterranean heat. A delicate white paneled lace dress with strappy linen sandals completes her nighttime look. “The platinum ring’s nature-inspired design is the perfect complement to the fun and flirty LWD (little white dress),” Micaela explains.
The Vintage Bride
Is there anywhere more appropriate for the Vintage Bride wearing a Claire diamond platinum engagement ring by Single Stone to travel than Paris? “For this bride, it’s all in the details,” Micaela says. Her timeless white button up shirt and vintage slim-fit jeans are accessorized with a pearl-embellished headband and “mon amour” scripted soles for a perfectly Parisian travel outfit. For a day strolling through bookstores and vintage markets, she wears a yellow tweed jacket/short set with graphic patent-trimmed leather flats and a white box bag with a luggage tag (inspired by vintage travel trunks, of course).
For an evening of sipping French wine, the Vintage Bride wears a blue floral puff-sleeve dress with a ruffle-edge, sweetheart neckline with strappy sandals and a faux pearl beaded purse. “Like the Eiffel Tower in the Parisian skyline, the diamond platinum ring will sparkle against her ‘something blue’ puff sleeve dress,” Micaela describes.
Every bride deserves to have her moment in the spotlight, from the day she gets engaged to the last night of her honeymoon. Using her engagement ring as a guide, she is sure to find the perfect pieces to match her unique and stunning style. By choosing platinum, a durable precious metal, the love and warmth from this moment of her life will be captured in her memory for years to come.
