During the earliest times people didn’t know how to make clothes for themselves, but they were absolutely sure that they needed decorations. The first person on the earth felt that a decoration would make him a difference between the others – it worked like a merit badge. In African tribes, which still keep the system of primitive society, decorations made of bones, metal, stones, just like the stars on shoulder-straps, can tell about the community of a tribe, the hierarchy position in this tribe, merits and deserts. A girl who wore earrings, bracelets and beads showed if she was ready to make a family.Read More

As the history goes, the tradition to exchange the wedding rings comes from the ancient Greek culture. The ring as the symbol of the unity of soles and mutual love is put on a wedding finger because the artery in it goes straight to the heart, and the ancient Greeks used to call it “the life line”. Since then life changed a lot, but wedding rings as the fundamental attribute of a wedding exist from pre-Christian age till now. When other peoples could afford themselves to tie a flower on the wedding finger as the symbol of love and faith, the modern grooms and brides as a rule put on gold rings, though today it is not a postulate. Wedding rings can be made of different material – the main thing is the mutual feeling it symbolizes, and both the two people must like its design.
According to the tradition, the groom buys the wedding rings. But it makes great importance for the bride, too. A wedding ring is not just jewelry, but it also becomes the incarnation of any young girl’s dream – the happy marriage.
There is only one simple question left: how much one must spend for the wedding rings.
It will be just to the point to discuss the price of the future wedding rings before buying them. Your love is enormous, but unfortunately the budget is usually not of the same size. Tell your fiancée ahead how much you are going to spend for the wedding rings. If you cannot afford the most expensive ring for your bride, don’t be disappointed. Even if the ring is the symbol of your love to the bride, this feeling cannot be measured with any money. But what should you buy finally? Gold? Platinum? Moissanite? A ring of a traditionally classic shape or a ring of a unique style? The young people can find the correct answer only trusting their own taste. But they have to remember that they choose the wedding rings for life! Choosing and buying wedding rings, the groom and the bride should keep in mind that usually jewelry is not made of pure material. Most of the time it is a mix of different kinds of base metal for an alloy of, for example, gold and silver with cooper, sometimes with palladium, cadmium, nickel and zinc, or it can be an alloy of silver and platinum with copper to give the jewelry special mechanic characteristics and the right color. The amount of precious metals in the jewelry determines its purity. Most countries use the metric system to identify alloy purity which is indicated by the number of the precious metals parts in thousands of the weight numbers of alloy.
That’s why choosing wedding rings, pay attention to the tags on them.
It is an omen of misfortune to use someone else’s wedding rings. An exception can be only the inheritance wedding rings from parents to their children.Read More
Wedding dresses display the purest, most natural colors of the earth – whites and creams. These colors ideally complement the sand and sea, as well as create an opportunity to view your accessories as an exhibit of art. So, when accessorizing your wedding dress, go with the earthy, natural flow of summer.
Before deciding on which accessory to wear with your wedding dress, there are some important factors to consider.
The traditional choice of most brides is either pearl or diamond accessories (or imitation pearls and rhinestones, depending on your budget!). Both are natural beauties and classic chioces. But before deciding what accessories to wear, take into consideration the color of your dress.
A Girl’s Best Friend
If your wedding dress is pure white, diamonds are the perfect complement. Diamond jewelry (or costume rhinestone jewelry) can be found in both simple and more artistic forms. A neck adorned with a strand of diamonds is timeless beauty. A vining floral diamond cuff placed on the upper arm shows your style and originality.
Gift From The Sea
If you have chosen a cream dress, pearls or accessories with splashes of color in them look best. The sea itself designed the faultless accessory for showing off the colors of nature, the pearl. The pearl is a timeless declaration of grace, elegance and femininity. Pearls are a great item for “something old or borrowed”, and can often be handed down from a grandparent or other family member. In addition, pearls are cultivated in many different shapes, sizes, and colors.If you are generally conservative and traditional, a simple pearl necklace accents your ensemble.
On the other hand, if you want to make more of a statement, pearls and other jewelry can be found in a variety of larger, more dramatic pieces. For example, a large pearl set in the center of a gold rim with a double strand pearl necklace. Adding small splashes of color in your accessories can create an original look. A six-strand pearl bracelet that alternates cream pearl strands with green pearl strands is dramatic on the arm. An Indian designed gold and ruby necklace can represent your heritage and/or looks stunning as the only jewelry piece. If you choose to add splashes of color, keep in mind your bridesmaids’ gowns. They should be the same color, or in the same color family of the accessories you choose, so all the formal gowns complement each other.
The Design of Your Dress
Understand the design of the dress when choosing your jewelry. Any addition to a plain, straight dress should be considered an accessory. A full skirt, a puffed sleeve, a bow, or beading on the material – each add a fabric “accessory” to your dress.
Think of accessorizing as a point system not to exceed five. Start with a plain inexpensive looking dress and add one point for each accessory. If the dimensions of your dress take all the points, a simple pair of earrings is sufficient. On the other hand, if the dress is a straight satin sheathe, there is more room to play with jewelry. Simple and elegant is always best, but you can experiment with larger or more dramatic pieces, according to your personal style.
The Style and Cut
The next step is to visualize the style and cut of the dress. The best way to do this is to draw the outline of the dress on paper. This way, you can see where the “bare spots” appear between your body and the dress. Jewelry is most flatteringly displayed in these bare spots.
For a beach wedding during the sultry summer months, I recommend a simple, feminine dress in white or cream, complemented by pearls. Stick fresh flowers in your hair, or add a simple, airy veil. A four strand South Sea pearl necklace dripping with green and blue pearls would be stunning with a simple neckline. A multi-strand baby pearl cuff bracelet could stand alone with a sleeveless dress. A pair of pearl-drop earrings and a plain strand of pearls around the neck is easy elegance. Add a gold seashell to a row of pearls around the neck to enhance a beach theme.
Today, it is important for your wedding day jewelry to represent who you are. You may want to include accessories that represent your family from past generations, your culture, or your religious heritage. There is room for originality and creativity. In every decision made for your special day, you are sharing with friends and family part of who you are. So, too, your jewelry should represent part of what makes you unique.Read More
Unexpectedly, I was overcome with emotion before and during the ceremony and had tears in my eyes (along with a runny nose). My advice to you: Bring a tissue down the aisle with you.
We’re writing our own vows – is it okay to read them off a piece of paper?
That’s what my husband and I did, and – based on the emotional response from the crowd – it didn’t take anything away from the impact of our words. You never know how you’re going to feel once you’re declaring your love in front of a hundred or so people, so don’t burden yourself with the responsibility of memorization. My maid of honor carried my cheat sheet down the aisle along with her bouquet and handed it to me at the appropriate time.
Should I wear my engagement ring during the ceremony?
I was advised not to – apparently, it takes away from the impact of having your wedding band placed on your ring finger. My father, who walked me down the aisle, stuck it in his tuxedo pocket and gave it back to me to wear during the reception.
Will I have the chance to touch up my makeup during the wedding celebration?
You’ll probably want to bring the right shade of lipstick and a small mirror for touch-ups, as you’ll be doing a lot of smooching, as well as be photographed incessantly. If you tend toward shininess, it might not hurt to bring a powder compact, as well. You can even put one of your bridesmaids in charge of carrying it all in her purse if you prefer to remain unencumbered. That said, don’t get too hung up on how perfect your makeup is – you’ll look gorgeous as long as you’re smiling and happy.
Will I be able to go the bathroom in my wedding dress?
It depends on the dress. If you have a very ornate gown with a long train or extremely full skirt, you may have to request the aid of your bridesmaid(s). I found that I was able to use the facilities with relative ease on my own by straddling the toilet facing backwards. Not exactly glamorous, but it made it easy to get my skirt out of the way.Read More
Marriage is one significant life event that many women look forward to. It’s something that a woman usually prepare for as it marks her transition from being single to being fully committed to a man who she decided to spend the rest of her life with.
In line with this, it’s only natural that she maximizes the remaining time that she has before she enters a new chapter of her life – the time for both wedding preparations and a final look at singlehood.
Make a Scrapbook of Sorts
Memories are too important. Even before anything wedding-related starts, a scrapbook or any type of physical compilation of pictures, letters, and other paraphernalia that will lead to the I Do’s should be created. This will help one reflect back on the best moments of the relationship – how it started, its growth, and even the first kiss. While these can also be featured in one of the AVPs of the wedding, having it solely as a keepsake should be enough of a reminder of how incredible this journey has been, and how it shall continue for the rest of the couple’s lifetimes.
Get a Wedding Planner
Part of the bridal list of all weddings is to assign a wedding planner who’ll be managing everything end-to-end. This should be done way ahead of the wedding period just so the planner has enough leeway to readjust things as necessary. Of course, the planner has to know the bride’s vision of how things will go so as to make this once-in-a-lifetime event as close to perfect as possible.
Be Specific with Choices
Another essential element of the bridal list is to make sure that all preferences – motif, cuisine, the people to invite, the rings, etc. – should be specific down to the last detail. This is to ensure that the wedding itself will flow smoothly as expected. In coming up with choices, however, there should be a discussion between the couple. It would be surprisingly weird if the couple didn’t agree on some things about the wedding when, in fact, they should’ve discussed these beforehand.
Do Things She Hasn’t Done
While being committed to a person has its obvious perks, there will be limitations set as soon as the vows have been exchanged. Excluding the opportunity to date other people (which should’ve been erased off the list way, way before), there are other things that the bride might want to do on her own, like travel to a faraway place and soul search, or facing her fears by bungee jumping. Visiting old friends who the bride hasn’t talked to for a long time may also be a good way to cap off her singlehood.
While the bridal list provides specific examples of activities to be done before the wedding, a soon-to-be-bride can come up with her ‘bucket list’ of sorts. Perhaps, the groom may also have his own list, and that’s perfectly fine. They may even fulfill their to-do lists together. Just as long as these to-do’s are realistic, doable, legal, and in no way offending to the other half, then there will be no problems before, during, and after the wedding.Read More
