For brides who aren't scared to experiment with non-traditional ideas, the choices for bridal bouquets are limited only by your imagination and creativity, particularly if your service isn’t very formal. If you’re not very crafty, you can solicit a friend or relative to help you execute your vision.
Proper wedding etiquette dictates that thank you notes should be sent immediately after returning from your honeymoon. Remember that this is not only a major event for the bride and groom, but also for their loved ones as well and appreciation should be shown for their thoughtfulness in bestowing a gift upon the happy couple. Don’t delay more than three months after the wedding.
The man you love takes you to a romantic spot, gets down on one knee and whispers the words you have been waiting to hear..."Will you marry me?" He holds out a small velvet box, flips open the top and your breath catches at the sight of...the most hideous diamond ring you have ever seen in your life! What to do, what to do?
There are only two roads to take and the one you choose depends on several factors.
Option 1: 'Fess up.
If you honestly can’t imagine going through life in yellow gold when a white gold or platinum ring has been a lifelong dream, or with a pear shaped stone when you only ever gaze at princess cut rocks in the jeweler's window, take a deep breath and tell him. Gently!
Ah, Tuscany. The name alone brings to mind rich history, breathtaking landscapes, fine wine, and old world romance. What more could you ask for for a destination wedding?
