Fancy Rings That Dare To Be Different…

with 2 comments

…Do You Dare?

Not a typical couple looking for typical rings?  This Seattle based jeweler has got you covered.  Fancy creates different styles for different couples.  Do you dare to be different?  Have your dream ring custom designed!

Happily Ever After Rings by Fancy: “Fabricated bands with stamped text ‘happily ever after’ with flush set rubies for the ellipses.”


Unwedding Ring by Fancy:  “For the modern modern couple, or the angry angry ex. Another option for the aforementioned text ring.”

If you prefer to have your dream ring custom made, it’s easy!  Just give them your ring size, which metal you’d like, options or designs you love on the Fancy site, the height preference of your ring, what kind of rocks you’d like – if any and what you’d like inscribed on the inside or outside of your ring.  They can do upper or lower case letters and can even work with custom artwork.  Choose features you’d like added or created and they can design the perfect handmade ring to suit your personal, unique style!

To learn more and see more ring designs along with other jewelry options, click HERE.  These would also make really cool bridesmaid gifts…as you can have them say whatever you’d like.  Yay for creativity!

Shop For Unique Dresses Outside The Box!

with 2 comments

To find a dress that’s completely unique”, Denise of Bellis Studios says, “try thinking outside of the box…that is, big box stores!”.  Check out these beauties she found, just on the home page of Etsy this morning:

(Above – Top Row: Ruffle DressThe Shale Wedding DressVintage White Wedding Dress.  Second Row:  Blea Rosy Finch, Love In The Mist, Fairest Of Them All.  Third Row:  Princess Poof Skirt, Doris Dress, Silver and Chocolate.  Fourth Row:  Pinstriped Polly, Mocha Ruffle Dress, Ines Dress.)

Denise has also shared with me this Maggie Sottero Kiri wedding dress that fellow blogger Hello Banjo is selling on Craigslist.  It’s stunning and I just love the vintage look it flaunts!  If you’re interested, get information on her dress by clicking HERE.  Here are a few pictures of the actual dress posted on her ad:

Here is what the Maggie Sottero dress actually looks like on.  Head over to Maggie Sottero  to see a larger view:

So there you have it, beautifully unique dresses you can find – just by looking outside the box!  Several of these dresses shown above are also very affordable, which in my book is always a plus.  Especially with the way our economy is right now…why not save a little dough?  Thanks for sharing these with us, Denise!  Happy shopping, everyone!
