Shopping For A Wedding Ring

Some brides and grooms are lucky enough to have a fabulous ring from their mother or grandmothers but for the rest of you, you must think about where and how to shop. Of course a good place to start is online. You will see the different styles and learn the names and shapes of diamonds. You will also learn about the clarity of a diamond, which will have a great baring on the ring you finally purchase. A trip to your local jeweler with the information that you have shopped the internet would be a good move. Share with the jeweler the budget that you would like to spend and the size and quality if the stones that you wish to have. Of course, there are these wedding ring emporium stores that have thousand of rings to choose from that may give you a great overview of the ring of your dreams. They offer so many styles that you literally can try on every style that appeals to you. Whatever you final choice is, go back to the internet and to your local jeweler and give them the chance to bid on the ring of your dreams. Another option might be to go to antique stores and second hand stores. There you will truly find unique heirlooms that could also be a good choice for you. Remember that this is the most important piece of jewelry you will probably ever buy so make sure you really love it and want to wear it forever.

Wedding Q & A

The best man is super-shy and is really dreading giving the toast. Can he just skip it?

The best man has to give a toast it’s one of the man part of his job. Thankfully, it doesn’t need to be a State of the Union address; in fact he should keep it short and sweet, two minutes, tops. To increase his comfort lever, tell him he can read his speech from a card, and suggest that he rehearse it a few times in front of friends before the big wedding day.

Make a Grand Exit

Here’s how to depart in style. No wedding is complete without that special shot of the tow of you leaving the reception. You can’t go wrong with the classic sparklers send-off, but if your venue doesn’t allow them. Have guests wave confetti sticks, spin colorful pinwheels or hold wands streamed with ribbons in your wedding colors as you pass by them. Hand our mini bells for friends and family, or operated tea lights to illuminate your path. Say goodbye to your guests while driving away in a vintage vehicle. Attach a Just Married sign to a pickup truck for a western theme wedding, a horse-drawn buggy for a Cinderella affair, or a bicycle built for two for a sweet garden soiree.

The Affordable Cocktail Party

Cocktail receptions are one of my favorite things to do on a limited budget.

Hold your reception on a Sunday, cheaper than Saturday night. State on your invitation that the event is for cocktails, so guests won’t expect dinner.
You’ll save thousands on decorations simply because you won’t need big floral arrangements. Decorate small cocktail tables with candles and modest bunches of blooms.

For budge, I suggest offering fingers foods like Italian breads, olives, artichoke hearts and cheeses, finger fruits and salads. Nestle the food amid small bunches of flowers and grapevines. Arrange the wedding cake on its own table.

Use this handy list to ensure nothing important gets lost or left behind after the last dance is over:

Any heirlooms you carried (handkerchief, etc)

Wedding Questions

My maid of honor just got a new pair of funky glasses; they’re bright blue with thick frames, very hipster. How do I ask her not to wear them with her elegant bridesmaid’s dress? She has contact lenses, after all.

Give your friend a little credit. No doubt she’s perfectly aware that her hobo specs don’t match that formal frock and was already planning to wear her contacts. And if she doesn’t just let it go. The focus of the day will be on you, not on her blue crush.

Wedding Questions

Will guests be insulted if I have my bridesmaids make fallow-up RSVP calls instead of me?

Traditionally, it’s the bride or her mother who does the phoning but if you and Mom are too busy trying up loose ends, feel free to ask someone involved with the wedding and yes, that can be your attendants to help you out. Don’t worry about insulting anyone, those dearly beloved should have RSVP’d on time!.

Wedding Questions

Our Maid of Honor an Groomsman just broke up. How can we make sure it’s not too awkward on the wedding day?

Don’t make changes to your wedding that’ll leave you unhappy just to accommodate them. If they are truly your friends, they will act like adults. I would not allow a plus one for either party. This day is about you and your groom, it is not a competition to see who has the more attractive rebound. Do what you can to keep them apart, position them far from one another in the lineup at the altar, in photos and at the bridal party’s table at the reception, you can even seat them at separate tables.
