Here at Brides we're loving Monica Vinader's very cool friendship bracelets with a deep passion... so much so we are buying them up ourselves! They make perfect bridesmaids gifts for those of you who are after something a bit more hip and on-trend, and each bracelet carries a meaning behind it, which makes them all the more fun. The colour determines your meaning so vibrant orange for health, black for energy, chocolate for success, blue for peace, plum for prosperity, red for luck etc, etc. Choose from styles such as the Rio (my favourite, pictured) which is made from a silk adjustable cord and sterling silver (£98) and the Fiji (our editor's favourite) made with 18ct rose gold and silk adjustable cord (£78).
