When you think of a groom's gift for the big day, a wedding watch is probably one of the first things that comes to mind, right? Well, brides, time to turn the tables—the guys aren't the only ones who get to flaunt this luze accessory down the aisle. While a chunky timepiece on your wrist admittedly doesn't quite scream bridal or wedding photo-friendly, we're here to set the record straight. Believe it or not, there's an entire class of women's watches that go well with a wedding dress (AND rehearsal dinner dress, afterparty outfit, etc.). Imagine more a delicate bracelet look-alike and less Swatch-y. Plus, considering your phone may be MIA for most of the day, it's nice to have an old-school reminder of the time (although we doubt you'll be checking).
To prove our point that pretty watches for brides aren't in fact an oxymoron, we scoured the web to find nine of the best bridal accessories that add just the right amount of flair to your wedding ensemble (read: they won't compete with or detract from your great-grandmother's bracelet). Coming out on top as one of the most wedding-appropriate of them all is Kate Spade's floral-adorned timepiece, decked out with gold and pearls to enhance your frock. For the silver route, Rebecca Minkoff's barely-there number makes for easy stacking should you want to add other bracelets into the mix. And perfect for spring brides, Anne Klein developed the most genius invention: a watch with a hidden dial (you'll see).
Whether you "accidentally" leave this tab open to drop hints for your future spouse or decide to splurge on a new accessory for yourself (because what's another dip in the wedding budget?), any of these nine watches have "brides" written all over them. Add it to your ensemble on the big day, or save for future occasions. Either way, these stunners put in a good word for women's watches everywhere.
