    One of the wonderful things about choosing your wedding bands: there are no set rules! (expert advice)

    One of the wonderful things about choosing your wedding bands: there are no set rules! You can be as creative as you like and it's all about what speaks (or shines) to you!

    Remember that this ring is forever -- so choose a style that you could envision wearing 20 years from now. That said, here are some stylish and popular options of bands that will look fantastic with your brand new engagement ring!

    When it comes to wedding bands, you can never go wrong with the traditional, smooth-lined band. This classic style looks amazing and fits snugly with nearly any style of engagement ring, including solitaire, three-stone or five stone engagement rings. You will love this band for years to come!

     

    This pave-set diamond band is another heartwarming option, which looks stunning when accompanying a pave diamond engagement band of the same size. There are all different shapes and sizes of pave diamond bands to match your unique engagement ring. There is always the option to add some sparkle to a plain engagement ring setting as well!

     

    It's the blingin' band that really makes a statement! Brides love this eye-catching diamond eternity ring, with its sculpted-edge band. It looks gorgeous when paired with a plain engagement band, and could clash a bit with certain pave-style engagement rings so make sure you try it on first to see the set together.

    Brides, including actress Zooey Deschanel, are opting to bring a burst of color to their ring fingers with this channel set, sapphire and diamond ring. It's a great compliment to either a channel-set or plain band engagement ring.

    Similar to the pave-setting, the diamonds are placed differently into thischannel-set diamond wedding band. It has a very polished appearance and looks best when paired with a channel-set engagement ring. It also works beautifully with a plain band as well.

    If you want to go "custom," this prong-set diamond curved wedding ring is made specifically to align with your engagement diamond. It looks amazing when paired with a plain banded engagement ring.

    Other favorites:

    The whimsical, starlight diamond eternity ring is creative, playful and adds personality to a traditional engagement ring.

     

    We are in love with these radiant rubies in this channel-setting ring!

    This trio micropave diamond band, with three rows of diamonds, is to die for! We love that you could wear this without the engagement ring and it is simply stunning.

  • A pre-wedding facial may not be high on your priority list, but here are a few reasons why you may want to bump it up. (expert advice)     As your wedding day approaches, you want to be sure that you look your best.  For this reason, many brides book a facial appointment to get their skin in tip-top shape for the big day.  While a facial may not be high on your priority list, here are a few reasons why you may want to bump it up.   Fresh, Glowing Skin  One of your skin specialist's jobs will be to remove the dead skin from your face.  This is done by exfoliation and will get rid of the dull, tired look that can often result from dead skin.  The result is fresh, glowing skin that is naturally you - not from a bottle!  He or she will also apply a moisturizer that will keep your skin soft and supple - even through all the stresses that wedding planning can bring.   Close-Ups If you want close-up wedding pictures, you should probably not forget to book your facial.  The specialist will remove any blackheads, dirt and oil that may be clogging your pores.  These things are not attractive in a close-up wedding photograph - which is why so many women get them done!  In addition to removing this gunk from your pores, your facial expert will apply a toner or mask to help your pores close and your skin look stunning.   Cost of a Facial The typical cost of a facial depends on your specialist.  If they are an excellent skin care expert and are in high-demand, it could cost up to $300 - and you'd better book well in advance.  However, most typical facial specialists will charge around $50 for the full treatment.   Helpful Tips to Remember when Booking Your Facial  If you've never had a facial before, you should probably have one well in advance.  The last thing you want is to have an allergic reaction to something used on your face right before your wedding day.  Make an appointment a month in advance to have the regular treatment and make sure all goes smoothly.  If it works well and you're happy with the look of your skin, you can make a second appointment a few days before the wedding.   Not only is a facial great for the health of your skin, but it's also relaxing and can be very helpful for the stress of wedding planning.  Whether you're getting a facial massage or just enjoying the typical gossip of the specialist's office - it's a nice break from wedding planning.

  • They brought you into the world, now show them you care with these creative ways to say thank you! (expert advice)  
    photo by: Gifts for the Good Life
        Your parents have played a very big role in making your wedding spectacular.  Not only did they raise you into the beautiful bride-to-be that you are, they've stood beside you through all your planning stress, offered their suggestions, and they may be funding the affair.  Your parents, and your fiancé's, definitely deserve a huge thank you.   Set a Budget I don't have to tell you that weddings are expensive - I'm sure you're learning that!  It's important to include gift giving in your original wedding budget.  There are no rules specifying an amount you should spend on gifts for your parents, but it's best to spend the same amount on both sets and to choose gifts that are somewhat similar.  Some couples decide to give their parents a gift for the two of them while others select 2 separate gifts for mom and dad.    Thank You Gifts for Two Giving your parents a thank you gift to enjoy together can be very meaningful and can also allow you to spend a little more on each gift.  Depending on your budget, consider: Travel. Cruise tickets, hotel reservations for the weekend, or a romantic retreat to a local resort are all possible gift ideas. An evening out. Whether it's a gift card for a favorite restaurant, tickets to a show or a complete night of pampering including the limo, your parents deserve a night out to unwind after the wedding. Gift baskets. Wine baskets, gourmet food collections, or personalized his and her gift sets are terrific ways to say thank you and can fit into most any budget. Something personal. Creative gifts often hold the most meaning. Consider making a personalized video or slideshow for each set of parents, presenting them with a family photo calendar, or framing your favorite wedding pictures for a sentimental touch. Digital photo frames with a personal message are big hits with parents. For Him, For Her You may decide to honor your mom and dad with individual gifts rather than a joint thank you.  If you've set a large budget, you could even do both!   Ideas for dads: Personalized cufflinks to wear on the wedding day. Gift certificate to a favorite store. Wine and cheese assortment. Personalized golf accessories. Pens, intriguing paperweights, monogrammed money clips or key chains. Mothers may enjoy: Spa certificates. Earrings or a necklace for the wedding day. Bath soaps, candles, and fragrances in an elegant gift basket. Personalized photo albums, frames, or a jewelry box. Charm bracelet or necklace with a family theme. Consider your parents' interests and you'll be sure to choose thank you gifts that your parents appreciate and remember for years to come - whatever your budget.

  • Photos By: Mary Swenson     Simple, inexpensive clay pots can be turned into lovely little favors and centerpieces with just minimal effort and even less cash. Here's how!     To make the favors, we started with a small three-inch high pot. We cut the top off a plastic water bottle (make sure to keep the cap on), which fit perfectly inside as a liner for the pot.     Cut a piece of wet floral foam to fit inside the plastic liner.     Insert the liner and the foam into the pot, and fill the inside of the liner with water, so that the foam absorbs most of the water. The liner will ensure that the water stays away from the inside of the clay pot, preventing it from getting dark and wet (and, from leaking out of the hole that's in the bottom of most pots).     We purchased an inexpensive flower arrangement at a grocery store, cut out the flowers we wanted to use, and inserted the cut flowers into the foam. Since these favors will be going home with your guests, the foam will keep their arrangement intact during travel.     Our finished favor arrangement is sweet and simple!     Creating a matching centerpiece is even easier -- simply use a larger pot, and stick a cup of water inside the pot for your stems. We used the same flowers as we did for our favors, and added tulips for an extra touch.     The coordinating favors and centerpieces create a cohesive, beautiful look for your event!     To personalize your arrangements, print out guest names and table numbers on regular printer paper, cut into strips, and affix with double-sided tape or glue to the pots. So charming!

    Tissue paper flowers are a design-forward and inexpensive alternative to fresh or gumpaste flowers. They can be made well in advance and saved indefinitely. We recommend that they be used only with fondant cakes, as you don’t want the dye in the tissue paper to come into contact with buttercream.       What you'll need:   Crepe and/or tissue paper in the color palette of your choice Toothpicks (or skewers) Scissors Floral tape How To:     Step One: To form the center of the flower, cut a length of paper about three inches wide.       Step Two : Fold the paper so that each fold is about ¾" wide. (For smaller flowers, folds should be smaller; for larger flowers, folds should be bigger.)       Step Three: Use sharp scissors to cut a rounded edge.     Step Four: When unfolded, paper should have a scalloped edge.     Step Five: Begin rolling scallop in onto itself, pinching about ¼ of the way down from scalloped edge so that paper flares and opens slightly.      Step Six: Continue until entire length of paper is rolled up.       Step Seven: Twist the base of the paper as tightly as possible to form a stem.     Step Eight: Using a contrasting color, repeat steps one through seven, placing new paper around already-formed center.       Step Nine: Continue until entire length of paper is rolled up. For even larger flowers, additional layers of paper can be added by repeating steps two through seven.     Step Ten: Place toothpick or skewer against "stem" of flower.         Step Eleven: Stretch floral tape to activate, and wrap tightly around both toothpick and tissue paper until all paper is covered.     Step Twelve: Insert toothpick into fondant-covered cake.     Step Thirteen: Make as many flowers as desired to complete your design. Enjoy!

    By: Victoria Hudgins   Here's an inexpensive way to get in on a simple urban trend for your wedding! Concrete can give a simple/pretty utilitarian look when used in the right way and is one of the cheapest materials to work with.A large bag of concrete sells for about three dollars at your local hardware store and one bag could make an estimated 100 candles! For three dollars (plus the cost of the tapers).     Materials: Paper Cups Tapers or votives Concrete Mix Water Spoon Protective Mask   Step One: Mix the concrete with the water according to your package directions. Work in small batches and wear a mask to prevent inhaling the powder.     Step Two: Once mixed, pour the concrete into your paper cups. You could pre-measure a line inside your cups for a consistent height or pour in varying amounts for a more organic look.     Step Three: Place a taper candle (or votive if your prefer) into each paper cup. Twist down toward the bottom of the mixture to secure.     Step Four: Let dry overnight (or for 24 hours). Then, cut a slit in the top of each paper cup.     Step Five: Begin unwinding the paper from the concrete. If fully dry it will come right off!     Display Idea: Place a grouping of these to center each table, or make them in mass to back your ceremony stage.     They look pretty lining windowsills...on a shelf or other bare surface.     Photos by: Victoria Hudgins

    Succulents are all the rage for weddings and parties, and with good reason: these little plants are not only completely adorable, but they're inexpensive and easy to work into just about any theme.     The popularity of succulents has made them available almost anywhere. We purchased ours for less than $3 each at a home improvement store!     There are many different types of succulents to choose from, and all require the same, easy care: a sunny window, and watering only when the soil is completely dry. We love how interesting different types of succulents look together, so we chose a variety for our project.     One of our favorite ways to see succulents is when they are paired with neutrals and rustic elements - they add a bit of a modern touch and subtle color to enhance the decor perfectly. We kept things super simple by keeping the succulent plants in their original plastic pots and wrapping kraft paper around each one.     Name tags were tied around each pot with a piece of unfussy twine.     The options are endless for how to display these tiny favors! We love the look of them arranged on a tiered stand...     ...or placed at each guests' spot at the table.     Remove the name tags and cluster the plants on a cake stand placed in the center of each table for an instant centerpiece...     ...or arrange them inside a wooden box for an ultra-pared down and rustic look. Your guests will love to take home these plants as a memento of your special day!     Photo By: Mary Swenson

    Photo by: Carly Taylor   Looking for an extra special touch to give your programs or shower invites? Incorporating fabric can give you a beautiful way to showcase your wedding style and create a piece that is handcrafted.     After designing your wedding program, cut a piece of cardboard to the exact size of your program.     Cut your main fabric to the correct size of the cardboard previously cut, leaving an extra 1/4 inch around the entire square to fold over. Affix your fabric to the cardboard with a thin layer of fabric glue on each of the turned over sides.     Using coordinating fabric and ribbon, line one side of the program bringing in texture through pattern and color. Fold each piece over and attach to the back side with fabric glue.     Lastly, attach your program to the backside of the program using a very thin layer of fabric glue around the edges(it dries completely clear).     Get creative, incorporating your color palette or favorite patterns!     So pretty and festive!

    Bunting is a cheap and easy way to add color to your soiree! Materials Needed: Tissue Paper, Scissors, glue stick, and string.

    First, decide how large you want each flag and then cut out several sheets at once.

    You'll want to cut out pieces that are double the desired flag size so that they can be folded over.

    Once you've finished cutting you're ready to glue. With a fresh glue stick quickly swipe half the flag area. Lay string down halfway through and fold the tissue over the string.     Be sure to apply glue to the middle area of the flag so that it adheres to the string. Repeat until you have enough for your event.     It can take a while to produce a lot, so best to settle down in front of a movie while you work!    

    To safely store your flags, wrap them around an empty cardboard gift wrap roll or paper towel roll so they don't wrinkle.

    You are ready for the party!
