The Right Manicure to Make Your Ring Pop

 A wedding takes quite a bit of planning ahead, particularly when you’re sorting out the venue, the catering, the entertainment, and everything else in between. In fact, it’s usually the tiny details that can be overlooked – or that may seem extra. Yet this short guide to the perfect wedding manicure should take one thing off your mind!

Keep it simple: In order to let your wedding ring be the focus of your hand, opt for a clean and simple colour for your nails. This means minimising on design and nail art on the day, and keeping it to one block colour or the iconic French manicure.

Think of the colour: The colour of your nails can act as a friend or a foe if you’re looking to let your ring take centre stage. Firstly, opt for a more traditional colour for your nails – so reds, pinks or nudes rather than greens, blues, and so on. This will ensure that the colour goes well with your over-all look. Secondly, your nails could either compliment the colour of your ring or contrast it. So, if you have a ruby on your ring, why not go for red? And if you have a green emerald, why not go for pink?

The tip: Alternatively, a French manicure is always a pretty and wise choice – but it doesn’t have to be the usual manicure. Opting for a metallic tip can help reflect the shine of your ring, bringing more attention to it.

Subtle glitter: Glitter is something that makes a cameo at almost every wedding – from the dress to the food to the sparkle in your ring. Add to that by asking your nail technician to add a touch – not much! – of glitter to your nails.

Make sure they’re freshly-made: Nothing steals attention from rings more than over-grown nails. Make sure your manicure is as fresh as possible on the day of your wedding… It will make all the difference.

There is, of course, nothing wrong which choosing to keep your nails natural on the day. Even so, a manicure is still be recommended, particularly as many guests will ask to your the ring!



  • Hi Matthew, Mauro and Petra, Just wanted to say Thank You for the amazing work you did with Ramis and Adriels wedding. I wrote with Rami a bit in the last days and he said at least a couple of times that it was perfect :) Thank you also for handling all print-related stuff and going the extra mile with the decoration. Wish I could have been there to see it. Really happy you made them happy! :) Thank you & many greetings from Berlin, Natalie

  • Firstly, I just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting you, Mauro and the rest of your team and to thank you. Both Andre and I were so impressed with everything you did for Annez and Gio's beautiful wedding on the Salt Pans in Gozo - every detail was taken care of so thoughtfully and we were absolutely blown away by the venue, and of course how it was setup and dressed for their wedding day! It was simply breath-taking and that light (honestly, Andre and I could not get enough of it, which you may have noticed!!). You and your team took such good care of Annez, Gio and the wedding party and nothing was too much trouble. I especially liked your approach to the bride as its very similar to my own (that you are present and in the background, never rushing or stressing the bride or the bridal party). And thank you also for driving me to the Salt Pans - it certainly made it less stressful for me and I really appreciate that! As as for the venue at night - now that really had the 'wow' factor - absolutely magical, both for the guests and the lenses on our cameras :-)

  • Excellent. Nothing but Praise for Petra, Mauro and all the team at I DO KNOT. We celebrated our ruby wedding anniversary in Malta and I DO KNOT arranged everything for us and our 18 guests from Ireland and England. Such hard work and professionalism provided us with a unique 're proposal event' full church service, hotel, entertainment events etc. The I DO KNOT team were there for us, for all the whole 2 weeks and made it such a wonderful event that will never be forgot by the whole party. Feel free to ask them for more details of our functions they provided and you will see exactly how good they are and what such nice people they are and clearly a credit to the people of Malta. They deserve the awards they have achieved so far and Im sure there will be many more.

  • I would recommend Petra and her "I Do Knot" team to everyone! As getting married in Malta was a really last minute decision, Petra was super fast in providing us with best options and deals! I reached out to few companies, but Petra was outstanding and stood out right away! Could not be more thankful. And this comes from a wedding planner herself. If I trusted our day to her, anyone can!
