Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-29 12:23:17. Congratulations! Whether you’ve decided to go with a ring design that features diamonds a la Elizabeth Taylor or you’ve opted for a plain band with an Elvish inscription, you’ve passed the first hurdle. The next step will be to choose a diamond(s) for your custom wedding ring. Of course, the size of your diamond will vary based on your personal taste and budget. What kind or shape of diamond, however, will depend largely on your style. If you opt for an opulent, Taylor-esque ring, take a look at Asscher cut diamonds (this is the same cut as the infamous Krupp diamond that Taylor received from Richard Burton). If the Elvish engraved band is more your style, consider choosing round or princess cut diamonds. These cuts look dazzling in solitaire settings and will leave you with plenty of room to inscribe a romantic message or date inside the ring. Choose Your Wedding Ring Setting. You already know what style you want, now it’s just time to see if the jeweler you picked already has something, or if you’ll be getting your custom design on more seriously. The setting is what takes your diamond and transforms it from a beautiful stone to a breathtaking wedding ring.

The Expert: Brooke Keegan of Brooke Keegan Weddings & Events in Newport Beach, California. The Style Hack: If your budget allows, roll in some new carpet and completely cover the rug. Not in the cards? Keep your guests looking up. "Once you put down the band stage, the dance floor and a dozen tables, you`ve covered a lot of that carpet," Keegan says. So draw your guests` eyes to focal points around the room, like hanging market lights or a giant floral installation. The venue is large and wide open, and you want an intimate feel. Glamorous wedding reception. The Expert: Amy Zaroff of Amy Zaroff Events & Design in Minneapolis. The Style Hack: Space is usually a bonus, but if you`re after a cozy atmosphere, a big room with high ceilings can present a challenge. "Creating spaces within spaces and points of interest throughout will help keep guests` eyes front and center," Zaroff says. Hang long centerpieces low—just over the table—to bring their gaze down and to create a more romantic feel. Use furniture, flooring and fabric draping to define spaces throughout the venue. Designing vignettes will make it feel smaller and more intimate—and show off your wedding style.

Act as the point person for the bouquets and coordinate with the florist to find out when they`ll be delivered, if the bride doesn`t have a wedding planner. Hand out each boutonniere, corsage and bouquet, and make sure bouquets can be stuck in water to look fresh if the ceremony isn`t for awhile. Also, remember to take the bride`s bouquet at the altar, and return it back to her before she walks back down the aisle for the recessional.

Find an Instagram-worthy skyline, latte or patterned pillow to serve as the backdrop of your ring selfie. Go the distance. Cell phone pics will never be professional quality, but there are a few tricks to make your shots look almost as crisp. Avoid the zoom on your camera— physically moving your phone will make a less pixelated photo. If you`re using an iPhone, set up your shot and then tap the screen to focus the lens. Avoid shaky shots by pushing the buttons on your earbuds to snap a photo instead of tapping your screen. Strike a (flattering) pose. Say good-bye to creepy hands by relaxing your fingers, adding a prop or resting your hands on your new fiancé`s arm. Avoid shots that highlight every pore and strand of hair on your hands by a slight tilt of the camera—or your hand—instead of shooting straight on. Take lots of options, but only upload one. You want your ring to stand out and look awesome. Skip the collages and pick one great shot to feature.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-22 13:14:52. Start Your Ring Search Early. Once you have a basic idea of what kind of ring you`d like, it`s time for the fun part: trying them on! Give yourselves at least two to three months before the wedding date to ring shop. You`ll need this time to browse, research prices and revisit rings that catch your eye. If you have your heart set on a custom ring, you`ll probably need even more time. And keep in mind: Extras, like engraving, can take up to one month. Mix It Up. Don`t fret if you like platinum and your partner likes yellow gold. There`s no rule that says you have to choose the same metal or even style. You could compromise with braided bands that blend the two metals together or just be totally different—the key to finding something you both love is choosing wedding bands that reflect your individual styles. Set a Budget. Shop with the assumption that you`ll spend about 3 percent of your total wedding budget on the rings. Depending on the retailer, a plain, 14-karat gold or simple platinum band can cost around $1,000. Embellishments, like diamonds or engraving, will quickly add to the cost, so factor that into your budget if you plan to personalize your rings with any of these extras. The price of engraving is usually based on the number of characters, the font used and whether it`s engraved by hand or machine (hand is usually pricier). Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind.

It`s sad, but sometimes true: The beautiful wedding dress that was obsessed over for months and altered to perfection can often end up in a heap on the floor if the bride`s rushing to change into her reception dress or after-party dress. Make her happy in advance by helping her change out of it and hanging it back up in the garment bag, smoothing out any wrinkles and attacking any champagne stains with stain remover from your emergency kit. Bonus points if you hold onto it and deliver it back to her after the honeymoon!

Going with an outside baker or your own wine can raise the price. Why? Because your venue`s workers are responsible for slicing and serving each piece, then cleaning the dishes—and this means more work for their staff. The Cost: From $2 to $5 per guest for the cake; from $1.50 to $3 for every bottle the staff opens. How to Avoid It: Be up front. Ask about cake cutting and corkage fees before you decide to go with an outside source for either. Cleanup and Breakdown Costs. Why It`s Hidden: Many couples spend so much time planning the actual day they forget to budget for what happens when it`s all over. The Cost: While a full-service venue won`t charge for these things, if you`re paying a flat fee to rent only the space, anticipate additional charges for garbage removal (up to $250) and cleaning (up to $500). And even most full-service venues require same-day setup and cleanup. So if you`re getting married on a weekend, expect to pay time and a half for labor, and if your party goes into the wee hours of the morning, you may face extra charges for late-night pickup and cleanup. How to Avoid It: Read your contract carefully—the setup and breakdown costs should be included in the labor charge. Non-Approved Professionals. Why It`s Hidden: Some venues require you to use caterers or florists from their preferred pros list—and tack on a fee if you don`t. The Cost: Usually an extra 20 percent or more. How to Avoid It: Stick to their list of preferred vendors, or choose a venue without one.

Is it important to you that they help to address wedding invites, shop for your day-of attire with you and attend all of the prewedding parties? Or will it be enough for them to wear what you choose and show up on your wedding day? If you want a very involved wedding party, it may not be the best idea to ask friends or family who live far away or have extremely hectic schedules. You may be setting yourself up for disappointment. Tip for the taking: For friends who can`t commit for whatever reason (they live out of town or are busy at work), let them in on just a few wedding prep activities, like an invitation stuffing party complete with wine and pizza. Include your brothers and sisters. Not to sound like your mom, but think about it: Even if you`re not particularly close to his sister or her brother, siblings are going to be around well past your 10-year anniversary, and chances are, you`ll become closer over the years. If you come from a big family and you can`t possibly include everyone, draw the line at teenagers. Instead, make them a part of the ceremony by asking them to pass out programs or seat guests. Tip for the taking: Traditionally, it`s ladies on one side and guys on the other, but feel free to break that rule and have them stand on either side of the aisle. Consider the size of your wedding. You can have as many (or few) bridesmaids and groomsmen as you like. The average wedding party size is four on either side. Use that as a guide when you decide. Depending on formality, go larger or smaller.

The venue is the perfect size and free on the date you want…but the carpet is terrible, the wallpaper clashes with your colors and the lighting is all wrong! We tapped our favorite wedding pros for clever solutions to the most common décor challenges. The space’s chairs are dated, and they don’t fit my color scheme or style. Chiavari rental chairs. The Expert: Krystel Tien of Couture Events in San Diego. The Style Hack: This is an easy fix: Rent ones that complement your wedding style or colors, like classic chiavari chairs or rustic wood benches. "We love to incorporate specialty lounge furniture and beautiful vintage pieces," Tien says. If budget is a concern, select a couple of pieces that will have maximum effect, like king and queen chairs for the sweetheart table. "A few properly placed items can make a huge visual impact," Tien adds.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-22 13:15:17. Research other roles. You might need ushers to lead the guests to their seats at the ceremony, plus a few people to light candles and distribute programs. But there are a lot of other options as well. Maybe you have a musically inclined friend who would love to play something at the reception. Or what about that friend who is an amazing writer? Have them pen a poem or meaningful essay to share at your ceremony. Tip for the taking: Think twice before offering your friends obscure, not-so-needed positions, like guest book attendant. (Would you want to do that?) Most people would be happier with a VIP corsage and a reserved seat at the ceremony. Kids aren`t required. If there are no children you two feel particularly close to, you don`t need a flower girl and/or ring bearer. And if you have many children you want to include, feel free. Have three little flower girls instead of one and give them each their own basket of flower petals ( boys might enjoy throwing flower petals too!). Or have your two little ones walk down the aisle as pages. They can bear the ring, hold a keepsake or carry a "Here Comes the Bride" sign. Tip for the taking: Having an adults-only wedding? You can still have kids play their roles at the ceremony and not allow them at the reception. If you do that, consider setting up a room for kids with a babysitter during the reception and have some fun foods and activities planned.
