Top Wedding Trends at Westminster Hotel Weddings: Your Wedding’s ‘Birthmonth’ Gemstone and Flower


west sapphire

One of the top wedding trends that we see here at Westminster Hotel Weddings is personalizing a wedding to the couple’s birthmonth. It may be using their birthstone or their birthmonth flowers, such as featuring Lily of the Valley in the bride’s bouquet if she was born in May. Or, for a September wedding, the color Sapphire is a trendy color for a fall wedding, and the bride may incorporate some blue bling in the crystal accents on her dress, in her tiara or in her wedding day jewelry.

A great way to give this timeless wedding tradition a unique twist is to consider your wedding date the birthstone of your marriage. So, if your wedding is in July, your wedding’s ‘birthmonth’ gemstone is Ruby and your wedding’s ‘birthmonth’ flower is the larkspur or water lily. Your wedding’s ‘birthmonth’ is when your new life is born, so why not embrace a new set of pretty gemstone and flower as your partnership’s signature stone or bloom?
