Sit back and soak in all the tulip wedding inspiration…

When you get engaged, you want the situation to be perfect. And when you get married, you want the wedding to go well. But when it comes down to it, those two events are a short snippet in your life with your loved one. The ring, however, will be with you forever. You want the ring to be something you love and adore. So why not personalise your engagement and wedding ring?
There are many beautiful options on the market but you can make your ring something unique and special to who you are as a person and who the two of your are as a couple. Here are a few ideas to help you personalise your engagement and wedding ring.
Ideas to Personalise Your Engagement and Wedding Rings
1. Consider Other Stones
Most people automatically gravitate toward the diamond when it comes to buying a wedding or engagement ring. However, if you want a ring that doesn’t look like everyone else’s the best thing you can do is choose a different stone. You can use diamonds to encompass the middle stone, but pick something like a pearl or another gem you appreciate and enjoy.
You will find in many portfolios of engagement rings, there are so many types and shapes to choose from. The stones at the center are either round or princess cut. If you want something more unique, lean toward a different shape. You can get a triangle stone, a heart shape, or even a square. Any shape other than a circle will be different than most people have.
You will need to make sure you choose a ring with a large enough band if you want to engrave it. The message will also have to be short. But whether you put the date, your new initials, or another message inside it, it will make the ring personal and one of a kind no matter what the rest of its details are.

With the average UK wedding now costing a mind boggling £18,000, saving for a wedding is no mean feat. The most important thing is not to lose sight of why you are getting married. It’s not to have the most expensive wedding dress. No one will think any less of your wedding if your shoes are from George of Asda of Jimmy Choo. It is so easy to get carried away with all the bits and pieces of a wedding that everyone tells you that you MUST have. Believe me-you don’t. A wedding can be anything from 2 people and their witnesses expressing their commitment to each other in a registry office, to an out of control lavish spectacle. Just keep it in perspective and within your personal budget and you’ll have a fab time.
Just to show you what CAN be spent on a wedding with no budget, I am sharing with you an infographic on the most expensive weddings. This has been brought to us by Cater Hire of Ireland, a company that knows a thing or two about weddings…..
Most Expensive Weddings
Wow! I love a good wedding but I can think of much better things to spend my money on that an $80,000 dress or $800,000 worth of flowers! Think I’ll leave the most expensive weddings to the mega rich and famous!
Wedding gifts and what to ask for is always a tricky situation. What do you ask for when you already have a home together and REALLY don’t want another toaster or dinner service? Well the co-founders of Envelope, Simon and Tom, may have the solution. They came up with their online wedding registry idea when Simon was planning his own wedding. He just couldn’t find a nice way to manage their gifting.
“Like so many couples these days, a traditional store-based or retail registry didn’t really suit our needs. We wanted flexibility and a way to include both objects, as well as experiences on our registry. While there are a few online registries like this out there, we just didn’t like the way they worked. We’d spent so much time getting the wedding to look and feel a certain way, we wanted our registry to be just as personal, just as beautiful and just as thoughtful.” – Simon Baldwin.
After Simon and Annisa’s wedding, six of their guests asked if they could use the same platform for their own wedding and from there Envelope was born.
Since then, the guys have helped couples not only fund their dream holiday, hang art on their walls, build a new kitchen and helped to fund a marriage visa – which is the beauty of the online registry. It can be carefully curated to reflect a couple’s wants, needs and creativity. So how does it work?
