Discover unique ways to incorporate your Pride into your wedding fashion and accessories. From rainbow gemstones to personalized engravings and pronoun pins, celebrate Pride with style.
Happy Pride Month everyone! As we kick off a month of celebrating our community (even though we celebrate it year-round!), we're spotlighting special ways to incorporate pride into your wedding fashion. As well as splashes of each individual style, your wedding should be a reflection of your relationship. From your shared values to your individual interests, this is a day where you can let who you are shine through!
If you and/or your partner is a member of the LGBTQ+ community, make your mark and show your pride with jewelry that expresses your love. (Or just buy some to show your Pride year-round!)
While a singular rainbow gemstone doesn’t exist (if only!), you can achieve a beautiful and unique look by incorporating small gems in the color of the rainbow or your chosen flag. Add them to either side of a central gem or diamond on your ring, or create an entire band out of small gems.
This tie bar is a beautiful example of the rainbow flag incorporated into a piece of wedding jewelry. Crafted from brass and plated in silver, it’s a subtle yet suave addition to your tie. Rainbow Tie Bar from Etsy, $15.97
WITH SPECIAL ENGRAVINGS
Not everyone vibes with jewelry that’s as much of a statement as colored gemstones. If you and your soon-to-be spouse are a little more low-key, you can still celebrate Pride via your accessories in other ways. We love the idea of choosing antique jewelry as a sustainable option with plenty of character, and making your pieces your own with a matching engraving.
Choose something that’s close to both of your hearts, whether it be a Pride quote, a simple rainbow, or a personal saying that expresses your love for being part of the LGBTQ+ community. For a little dash of inspiration, we think engraving love is love onto a wedding day piece would be a beautiful idea.
These gorgeous cufflinks made a personal piece, with the option to handwrite your engraving for a completely unique set. With a range of metal options, tailor your cufflinks to suit your style. Personalized Cufflinks from Etsy, $68+
LGBTQ+ jewelry is finally getting the attention it deserves, and there’s a growing number of his & his, hers & hers, and theirs & theirs pieces available. If you’re a very romantic couple, you could each have your chosen pronoun on half of a heart and give your side to your partner. It’s a beautiful LGBTQ+ wedding gift idea for your other half and one that can be worn for years to come.
In a simple monochrome, these pronoun pins will suit any wedding look and won’t take the attention away from your dapper suit or gorgeous dress. It’s a subtle LGBTQ+ statement, but one that can be worn with plenty of pride. Pronoun Pins by Dash of Pride, $9.99
These his & his bracelets (hers & hers also available) have a relaxed, chilled-out vibe thanks to the leather wrap band but are still sophisticated enough to be worn with a suit. Personalize the metal bar with the date of your wedding day for an added sentimental touch. His & His Bracelets from Etsy, $28.78+
If you’re not keen on the idea of incorporating your statement into your everyday jewelry (e.g. your wedding ring), opt for a flag pin. This is a fantastic way of still expressing your love for our community on your wedding day but without encroaching on your permanent pieces. Choose from the standard Pride rainbow or select one that is specific to how you identify. Pride Pins by Bianca Designs, $12
Make your own for a budget-friendly accessory or opt for a pre-made piece, like this incredible Pride Flower Halo which is ornately decorated with faux flowers in all the colors of the rainbow. Rainbow flower crown from Etsy, $48.09
Celebrating who you are as a couple should be a part of every wedding. If you’re in the LGBTQ+ community, we hope this article has helped inspire you to find a beautiful piece of jewelry that expresses your love. Whether you opt for a colorful statement piece or a subtle engraving, it’s a wonderful way to show your Pride and encourage others to do the same. Love is love, after all!
As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born.
I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
