Four Things to Consider for your Ruby Wedding
Center of Attention or Background?
Ruby, as a gemstone and as a wedding color, is most definitely the center of attention. This means that any other colors you have aside the Ruby should be chosen to enhance its beauty and meaning. Being bold should not mean you can’t play it up. For example, you may choose it to be a pop of color – steal drawing attention – like in the bouquet of our inspiration collage. Or, it can be dramatically center stage like in the sequin bridesmaid dresses. Ruby has a warmth to it that undercuts the hardness or loudness that can sometime accompany red. This means you really can have Ruby sequin dress with it looking romantic and luxurious and not Vegas show girl.
As a gemstone, Rubies are known to evoke passion and romance. According to crystalvaults.com “ruby has always been associated with love, especially faithful passionate commitment and closeness” and were in fact once thought to be the perfect wedding stone. Really, the only thing a young couple wants more than to live happily ever after is to live passionately ever after.
Food for thought: Have you ever heard of the joke tradition to put a marble in a jar every time.. eh hem…in your first year of marriage and to take a marble out every time *cough* in the years after and even 50 years later you’ll still not have emptied the jar? So, maybe using a Ruby as the center stone of your wedding and maybe even your wedding ring will prevent that from being you!
