Order a set in either sterling silver or gold, to exchange on the big day.  Not only stylish, but somewhat practical for those who might work in construction and need to take their rings off for safety reasons!


While I love their jewelry, the other thing I love about Oye Modern is their eco-friendly state-of-mind.  To see how they’re doing their part to be “green” and help the planet, click HERE.  Also, if you need something in a jiffy, fear not!  They offer 2-4 day worldwide shipping

Wedding Bands That Rock…

…Craving Some Really Good Metal?

Getting married soon and in the market for some fabulous wedding bands?  Visit for an array of unique styles in different metals, including platinum, white gold, yellow gold, titaniumtungsten and palladium!  Take a look at a few of my favorites… 


 The following are some facts about the wedding bands from, to help you before you begin your ring shopping:


It’s virtually scratch resistant, by far the hardest metal they carry.  It’s 10 times stronger than 14k gold and 4 times harder than platinum.  They have a lifetime warranty on all of their tungsten and can also do laser engraving on them!


This is an extremely rare, yet pure metal.  It is only found in a few places and is more rare then gold.  It’ll never fade or blemish and is made of PT950 platinum.


They offer three different karats ~ 10k, 14k, 18k in yellow and white gold.


Is extracted at the same time as platinum.  One of the whitest metals out there.

My sister and her fiance got their Tungsten Rings from and love them.  When they showed me the set, I was quite impressed…they were not only stylish and of great quality, but they were really affordable too.  Seriously, the rings they got are awesome! 

So deario cheerios, if you’re looking for a cool pair of wedding bands, be sure to visit their site.  They offer a huge selection for all different budgets…I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

…With Lovely & Affordable Rings!

Man, weddings can get expensive, can’t they?  By the time you’re finally done planning (or close to being done) all you want to do is chill.  Maybe spend some time with your fiance…or let your hair down with your girls!  After all, if they’ve been living up to their bridesmaid “duties” they probably need some chill time too.  And maybe a little token of appreciation for all their hard work. 

If you’re looking for bridesmaid gift ideas but you’ve broken the bank paying for your wedding, fear not – their gifts don’t have to be expensive, just special!  Get them a little something special to not only remember your day by, but your friendship as well. 

Perhaps a pretty little ring will do the job?  Choose from over 40 designs or have one custom made by Etsy seller SoraDesigns!  Below are a few of my personal favorites…to see more of my favorites, head on over to my guest blog over at the Wedding blog by clicking HERE.

While you’re at it, why not get one for yourself, too?  You could even wear it on your wedding day…as “something new”!

…It’s A Happy Day Around Here, So How About Some Happy Pictures?

Yes, I’m in a happy mood today.  If I could describe my happy feeling, it would look a lot like this:

Enough about me though.  Check out the gorgeous wedding behind the above picture by heading over to Polka Dot Bride.  When Ms. Polka introduced us to the very talented Melissa Jill, I was so glad she did – I just adore the inspiring images from her blog, including these

From David & Ashley’s wedding:  Customize the bottom of your wedding shoes like Ashley did – so stylishly cute.

From Brandon & Amy’s wedding:  Amy engraved, “Put Me Back On” into Brandon’s wedding band.  Too funny! 

Thanks to Ms. Polka and Melissa Jill for the fabulous inspiration.  Enjoy more beautiful pictures taken by this very talented Arizona photographer by visiting her blog and website.  Cheers!

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!
