Have you ever thought about getting something custom for your wedding day? Maybe not, because weddings are pretty custom experiences already - from the flowers to the food, stationery to the signage, we’ve come a long way since the very cookie-cutter nuptials days of yore. Maybe not, because custom has only crossed your mind when it comes to couture or ceremony vows - and you’ve shrugged it off with ‘’not sure I need that’’ reassurance and moved on. And maybe not, because custom conjures thoughts of time-consuming things - and do you really have enough of it leading up to the wedding? We’re here to tell you that custom jewelry can be everything you never thought you needed for your wedding day, and Lovebird Jewelry Collective are the women who will make it happen (only fitting, because #WCW, arewerite?!!).
What’s going on in their nest (you know, because Lovebird?)
Lovebird Jewelry Collective is a woman-owned jewelry studio based in Lincoln, NE. Their tagline is “luxurious, handcrafted bridal accessories that are as radiant as you,” and tbh, when we hear that, we immediately think custom and original, because that’s who every bride is - radiant, unique, and one-of-a-kind on their special day.
Using Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls, Emmy and Carissa (the owner and principal designer, respectively) make earrings, hair accessories, bracelets, necklaces and other demi-fine bridal baubles that are true heirloom quality. All of their pieces are safe for brides with nickel allergies, as they use only high-quality plating materials: 22K gold, 14K rose gold, and platinum-mirroring palladium.
Why fly to them? These are just a few reasons:
The on-site pieces are fully customizable.
From metal and crystal color to post adjustments, all of Lovebird’s currently-shoppable pieces are fully customizable. For simple modifications (like metal or crystal color swaps), you can write a design note during checkout and their in-house team will let you know if they need anything else before getting to work.
The from-scratch possibilities are endless.
The internet is a wonderful thing, but it also has its limitations - especially when it comes to wedding-perfecting products. Sometimes you’re just looking for something that doesn’t, in fact, exist. You can spin your wheels, Googling different search terms each time to see if something matches what you have in mind for earrings that exude the same kind of metallic threading in your dress, a hair vine that looks like it leapt right off the 3D florals on your gown, or a bracelet that brings in the same kind of variegated pearls that adorn your veil.
And the Lovebird girls give you ALL the-sky’s-the-limit freedom to stretch your wings and figure out exactly what kind of custom piece you’re hunting for. You can use their current product assortment for inspiration and design touch points, but also provide pictures and/or social posts you’ve bookmarked that speak to you and your style.
The customization is inspired by context and other ‘I do’ cues.
One of the things we love about Lovebird is that Emmy and Carissa don’t work blindly. From years of working and owning a bridal boutique, Emmy knows precisely what brides want from their wedding day fashion and accessories. And when your custom orders come in, they’re excited to find out more about you - your style preferences, your wedding vibe, what you’ve been obsessing about and double tapping like crazy on Instagram, and any other nuggets of intel you'd like to share to have them get what you’re really going for on your big day.
Custom doesn’t cure, but smiling makes things better
These happy brides had the best experiences working with Emmy and Carissa. And their jewelry wasn’t just a one-and-done deal, either…
“I had the absolute best experience working with Lovebird to create my jewelry for my big day. Since I had two dresses, I got two pairs of earrings and they were both absolutely stunning. Carissa worked with me to customize the metal color so that it matched my vision. She helped me create a completely custom hair vine based off one that was in their collection. She took my vision into account and just made it completely perfect. Everyone complimented me on my jewelry at my wedding and I still wear it all the time, because it’s such good quality.” ~ Mandy
“I loved being able to customize my accessories with Lovebird! I wanted my wedding day earrings to fit my personal style and they turned out so amazing! They actually added my custom earrings to their permanent collection, which is so special to me. I’ve worn my earrings numerous times for date nights as well as for our wedding anniversary every year!” ~ Molly
“I wanted to let you know, I got my custom earrings today, and you have done an incredible job!! Being a “COVID” bride has been very difficult and I’ve been having a very hard time lately as everything is changing in regards to my dream wedding, but these earrings have truly made me happier than you’ll ever know!" ~ Ashley
