Gold or Silver ?
With the Olympics and Medals on our minds why not take this chance to think about the type of metal for your wedding ring. Your wedding ring is a very special symbol and so needs to be carefully considered. Firstly, remember that your engagement and wedding ring must be similar grade of metal so that they do not wear each other down. Good quality jewelers will be able to give you advice on what is best to choose.
It is important to consider what complements your skin tone. Yellow gold will look best with olive skin tones and white gold flatters fair skin, whereas red heads are best suited with a lovely rose gold. Even though Gold is most commonly chosen there is nothing common about this precious metal. It can be mixed with other metals to give different unique tones and durability. There is a range of karats available from 24K pure gold which bends with daily wear to 9k which is duarable and is at a significantly lower cost!
However if you prefer silver jewelery it is best to choose white gold or platinum. It is a highly durable precious metal but it is more expensive than gold!
There are so many things to consider! Do you have a family tradition? What shape would you like? Jewel set or plain? The possibilities are endless…
If your Wedding Day is looking like it might rain, then plan ahead! Don’t just consider your hair and dress getting wet, but what about your feet as well?
Not all brides have the luxury of being able to arrive on the doorstep of their church or venue, so why not make sure your feet remain dry with a pair of wedding wellies.
Perdita’s Wedding Shoes supply wedding wellies that are already decorated and some that even have a heel. But if you are a bit creative, why not buy a plain pair of wellies and decorate them yourself.
Not only is this a very practical option if the ground is wet, but what a great opportunity for some fun photos!
