Our 5 Favourite Swarovski Wedding Gifts
It may not be the driest July in the UK but nevertheless we're firmly in the swing of wedding season. The Summer months are traditionally seen as the peak wedding period and so we thought it would be quite fitting to showcase our five favourite Swarovski wedding gifts. We've chosen a selection of products perfect for the parents of the bride and groom to offer the married couple, or for close family friends to do the same.
These have been consistently popular since we first launched Gifts of Crystal back in 2007 (has it really been that long?!), having remained in our list of top Swarovski gifts on the site for pretty much most of that time.
These long stem champagne flutes are very symbolic and are a traditional gift given to married couples. A pair of delicate crystal flutes to celebrate a marriage just born, and are perfect for the bride and groom to toast their future together with a glass of champagne.
Faceted clear crystal bases lead to a stem filled with small crystals that sparkle and dance with the light. This leads to a tall and narrow flute, deserving of the finest champagne to celebrate the most special of occasions.
Here is another piece from the Crystalline collection we simply adore thanks to the hundreds of tiny crystals. This hinged photo frame comes in a modern clean silver tone and features two panels. The left hand side panel is packed full of tiny crystals which sparkle and toy and sparkle with the light drawing the eye to the frame. The right hand side panel has space for a 10cm x 15cm photo (6 1/8 inches x 4 5/16 inches).
A rought edge pattern around the photo and the crystal panels adds texture to this magnificent photo frame which is perfect for displaying the happy couple's most favourite wedding day photo.
This is the final Crystalline item in our countdown but we feel the timeless look of the Crystalline collection means it is ideal for giving as a wedding gifts that can be cherished for years to come. This large serving bowl is a perfect example of that.
Ideal for outgoing married couples who like to entertain and hold evening parties, this serving bowl is perfect for using as a centrepiece. Clean crisp lines together with hundreds of tiny crystals in the base make this a wondrous piece and a beautiful wedding gift.
This 30cm wide bowl has plenty of possible uses from displaying a fruit platter, holding a supply of delicate gourmet buffet finger food or even as a home for a small number of floating candles. Its multi-purpose characteristics make it ideal for giving as a wedding gift as it is bound to be used often and adds an air of sophistication and glamour to the new couple's home.
The Ambiray collection is the younger sister to the Crystalline collection and offers a modern and sleek look. This photo frame is a new kid on the block and whilst it doesn't offer as much bling as the Crystalline version above, it does offer bags of style and elegance. In a modern home this would look ideal.
Fashioned from stainless steel, this stunning photo frame features a small column of tiny crystals on the right hand side adding a certain level of sophistication to this frame. The top right of the frame has been designed to mimic a fold in the frame, revealing more crystal decoration behind.
This photo frame has been designed to hold a photograph sized 9cm x 13 cm (3 1/2 inches x 5 1/4 inches). A black and white wedding photograph would be beautiful in this frame though a vibrant colourful photo would add another dimension to this magnificent frame.
For our last suggestion we've gone with something a little more unusual and decadent. The swan is a graceful creature and this representation in crystal is purely majestic and breathtaking. It comes with a hefty price tag but it's the kind of symbolic gesture we'd see a father give his beautiful daughter on her extra special wedding day.
This graceful ornament demonstrates Swarovski's exceptional craftsmanship skills and features a clear faceted crystal body with a long rounded neck and head in smooth clear crystal. It is a highly symbolic piece with connotations of gracefulness, positivity, style and class. It's a gift that would be cherished by the happy couple for many years to come.
