wedding proposal

Wedding rings are important in all weddings since they symbolize the union between two loving people. This is a part of the reason why the wedding industry is booming. Wedding rings aren’t particularly cheap. In fact, they are considered priced commodity with the best ones fetching for thousands of dollars. The more complex the design and the rarer the materials used, the more expensive it is going to be.

That being said, you don’t necessarily need to buy the most expensive wedding ring you can find. You need to consider many things before you choose your wedding ring. Some would say that it should be your salary multiplied by a magic number. That is fine and all but that rule isn’t set in stone. You don’t actually need to spend a lot in order to get your wedding ring. You spend whatever you think is fair – totally depends on you.

How to select your wedding ring

The key to selecting your wedding ring is to make it reflect your personality. You need a ring that is unique to your relationship with your partner. You need a ring that when you see makes you think of your partner. That is a type of ring that is fitting of every couple.

If you have a tight budget, you can totally save a few thousand dollars on your wedding ring. If you feel like so, just spend what you saved on the actual wedding itself. It will go a long way since wedding rings are expensive. Many people are actually seeing the actual worth, or lack thereof, of wedding rings. The reason why wedding rings became so expensive is because of a genius marketing scheme called ‘diamonds are forever.’ Because of that great marketing campaign, couples were tricked into buying expensive wedding rings for their partner.

You don’t actually need to spend a lot on your wedding bands

As I’ve said before, you can save a lot of money by not buying into the marketing. One thing that is quickly becoming popular among wedding couples is customized wedding bands. It is a kind of service that fabricates a unique wedding ring based on the design of the couple. They can select from ready-made designs or create their own, depending on their preferences. They also have the freedom to select what type of material would be used for fabricating the ring. Obviously, the rarer the material, the more expensive it is going to be. Nonetheless, this option is better since it is more economical and more personal.

Using Creative Wedding Ideas To Make Your Wedding Personal

When you fall in love and make the decision to get married, you obviously want your wedding to be as special and unique as your love is. The gorgeous ceremony that you and your fiance put together should be a beautiful reflection of who the two of you are, both individually and as a more..

By utilizing creative wedding ideas, you can make your ceremony a memorable and lovely one, something that your friends and family will fondly recall many years into the future.

Here are just a few examples of creative wedding ideas that you can implement into your own ceremony:

1 – Have friends and family tell special stories about you.

In addition to the photo montage set to music that many couples do, have friends and family pre-record little amusing anecdotes about you and your fiance, or preferably about the two of you together! These sound files can then be professionally edited into your montage.

2 – Have people display original artwork, read original poetry, or perform original music that they have created for the two of you.

In order to really capture your individual spirit, and that of your circle, tap the skills of some of the more creative people that you know and ask them if they will create an original work that, to them, embodies who you and your fiance are together. Then take those original works and display them on your wedding day.

3 – Forgo traditional flowers and decorate the site of the vows in a way that is meaningful to you, specifically.

Flowers are beautiful, but it is only in rare cases that they are personal. Decorate the site of your most sacred vows with objects that are both beautiful and meaningful in order to get the most creative impact from your wedding decor.

4 – In the program, include brief bios of the people in the wedding party.

The people that you have chosen to be in your wedding party are all meaningful to you in some way, but your guests will probably not be aware of all of the connections that are represented there.

By including a brief biography of each member of the wedding party in the program, every person present is able to share in the bonds of love and friendship represented by the people who are standing up with you.

To make an even more personal and poignant statement, have each member of the wedding party include a short message expressing their love and good wishes for the two of you on your wedding day and print them directly below the bios.

5 – Create wedding favors that are personal to you as a couple.

Rather than giving all of your wedding guests impersonal favors, that also often have no practical use, give them something that is meaningful about you and your fiance as a couple. Maybe it is a CD of the music played at your wedding, or it could be a small framed photo from your engagement photo shoot.
