    Choosing a Diamond Engagement Ring as Unique as Your Girlfriend

    This post is aimed at all the blokes out there, or can be subtly put under the nose of your other half, if you want to drop a major hint.

    Chances are high that your girlfriend is a pretty unique person with her own distinctive quirks and personality traits that make her especially endearing to you. If you’re planning to propose marriage and create a shared future together it really is worth thinking about the type of diamond engagement ring that would suit her best.

    Choosing a Diamond Engagement Ring as Unique as Your Girlfriend rings on poem

    Girls aren’t all the same and neither are diamond rings. If you can figure out the kind of engagement ring that really matches her style, her appreciation and respect for you will go through the roof. This is a major decision you’ll definitely want to flow as smoothly as possible.

    • Looking for Clues

     Although it may seem difficult at first, once you start looking more closely for clues there are many ways to tell what type of engagement ring would tick all the right boxes for your girlfriend. You need to play super sleuth and release your inner detective by observing certain details about her and her environment.

    • What Other Jewellery Does She Like?

     Check out her jewellery and see what themes you notice. Is it elegant and understated or kind of boisterous and over the top. Does she wear chunky, over-sized jewellery with big stones or is it more slender, dainty and antique looking? Does she prefer to wear gold, silver or some other type of metal?

    Gold comes in a variety of colours; but if your girl doesn’t wear it, there are other precious metals such as platinum that engagement rings can be fashioned from.

    • Clothing Style

     Paying attention to your lady’s fashion sense can also help you understand the type of jewellery she is likely to be attracted to. How does she tend to dress, both for work and in her leisure time? Is she conservative, traditional, business-like or corporate in her style?

    Perhaps she likes natural fibres and earthy, sensual clothes that float and flow. Or is she more playful, provocative, fiery and boisterous in her manner of dress? Are her colours vivid and bright, muted beige and greys or flowery pastels?

    Believe it or not, all of these things can help you identify the style of jewellery that would complement her general way of expressing herself in the world on multiple levels.

    Simple Suggestions

    Trawl through some of her favourite photos and notice what she has on in terms of necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. Take some photos of the jewellery she commonly wears along to a jeweller and their expert eye will be sure to notice common themes developing. You can also see custom diamond rings at www.diamondsforless.ca.

    Ask her best girlfriend, in the strictest confidence, about the kind of jewellery your girl is attracted to. It may be cliché but women generally know these things about each other. They’ll have engaged and married friends or co-workers and likely repeatedly discussed the specific types of rings they received.

    Gossip and fashion magazines are full of articles about jewellery with photographs to boot. At the very least they would have pointed some of these images out to each other and you’ll probably hit pay dirt if you can get her girlfriend to open up to you.

    When it comes right down to it, your lady will undoubtedly be over the moon that you’ve asked her to marry you. Finding the right type of engagement ring to suit her style will be the icing on the cake.

    If you feel like you’ve gotten it completely wrong, many jewellers allow for returns with minimal fuss and conditions. Do your best, trust your instincts and good things will surely follow.

    The Perfect Wedding Car for All Budgets

    A small but significant part of the wedding plan is the choice of the perfect wedding transport. This is something the bride will likely delegate to the groom, after mutually deciding the type of vehicle and fixing the budget. What are the options out there for getting the perfect wedding car for all budgets? How do you get the perfect wedding car that makes the right statement, is unique, and won’t break the bank? Let’s take a look.

    The Perfect Wedding Car for All Budgets

     Limo

     This is the standard-bearer when it comes to wedding cars. It is perfect for a glamorous arrival with plenty of space for the wedding dress, and it makes the right statement as you leave for your honeymoon. It is also perfect for the hen and stag nights that precede the wedding. If you are going to use the service a couple of times, make sure you get a discount on the entire wedding package.

    Classic car

    Nothing oozes class more than a classic car such as a 1927 Rolls Royce or a Bentley MK VI. It would be the perfect match for a retro-themed wedding, or just to give the occasion a touch of sophistication. The car is sure to be the object of a few close-up inspections. They comfortably seat up to five, without crushing the dress. Check online to see what’s available in your local area, and make sure she gets to see the available options.

    Super car

    If you are one of the lucky few who gets the approval for something exotic such as a Porsche 911 or a Ferrari Gallardo, then you know where you’ll find all the boys at the wedding. Make sure you check more than one service, and you may need to settle for a compromise if budget is a constraint. If you’re a racing enthusiast like former president of the FIA and now the industry voice for F1, Max Mosley, a super car would be a great choice for your wedding. You’d better make the most of it- Max Mosley believes F1 is on the brink of collapse, as he fights for a more level playing field and other structural reforms.

    Horse-drawn carriage

     If the wedding is at a stately home or country hotel, then a horse-drawn carriage as the last mile ride gives the occasion a unique flavour. It is also a great ride for the young ones, and once again, this will be an object of curiosity among the guests. Whatever your wedding day mode of transport, know that you will need to check multiple services and negotiate. Ask for deals and special discounts.

    Helicopter

    Let your wedding day take you to cloud nine, literally. If your wedding venue can afford the space, then this might just be your once-in-a-lifetime experience. A three-hour rental would cost anywhere upward of four grand, and the helicopter typically takes four people.

    The perfect wedding car, like the perfect wedding, needs to be discussed and planned if you want to avoid any last minute surprises. Good luck with your search, and best wishes for the big day.

    Best of Brighton: Why the Seaside City Is Wedding Perfect

    If you are considering a destination wedding and distance is no object, then you may wish to consider the very fabulous Brighton. No, not Brighton, England, although a wedding there would also be fab, but Brighton in Melbourne.

    Now I didn’t even know such a place existed but now that I do I desperately want to go and I can imagine that holding your wedding there would be spectacular.

    So here’s a little information about choosing Brighton, Melbourne as your destination wedding location….

    Best of Brighton: Why the Seaside City Is Wedding Perfect

    When you’re considering where you want to wed, while you want to choose a place you love. You also want your location to be appealing to the guests who’ll share your day with you. This means it is worth considering the last few weddings you attended.

    Weren’t they more fun when the actual location was vibrant and there were other things to do? Even if you live within driving distance of the wedding location, who doesn’t want to go somewhere where you can have a good time, beyond the event?

    If you’ve chosen Melbourne, and specifically the Melbourne beaches, you are likely to opt for one of the most popular and colourful beaches, Brighton. The beachside suburb is, unsurprisingly, named after England’s legendary Brighton. Brighton is one of the top wedding venues in Melbourne.

    Brighton is ideal for a couple who want to marry, as well as for their guests. It was founded in the mid-1800s by English settlers. The most notable tourist attraction in Brighton are the 82 super colourful bathing boxes which first appeared in 1986, at the end of Bay St, at the water’s edge. Today, the bathing boxes are located just south of Middle Brighton on Dendy Street Beach. Many were constructed between 1908 and 1911 because a tram line was installed to Brighton from St. Kilda in 1906. As many as 200 are thought to have been built before the Great Depression. The boxes were moved to another location, and finally, 1934, to the current location further back on the beach.

    huts

    The iconic boxes are identical in size and build and regulated by an organization called Bayside City Council’s Planning Scheme Heritage Overlay. The boxes must retain Victorian era architecture, which means timber frames, weatherboard sidings, and corrugated iron roofs. They must not have any electricity or running water. Only residents may buy them, which they purchase for about the price of a house, and annual council rates of $500 AUD. In February 2016, the box located at 62B Dendy St sold for a record $295,000 AUD in only two weeks; the previous owners had it for more than 20 years, and it is reportedly one of the original boxes. In January, one sold for $285,000.

    A terrific venue to consider for your wedding is the astonishingly beautiful hotel – Brighton Savoy, which will meet most, if not all of your ceremony and reception needs. It is a great place your guests to sightsee and walk. In fact, some of Melbourne’s wealthiest live in magnificent and impressive homes – lovely neighbourhoods to peruse. Cyclists love Beach Road on the beach. Both walkers and cyclists frequent the Bay Trail for off-road walking/cycling tracks along the coastline.

    Also fun to visit are the “historic modern” Royal Brighton Yacht Club, Middle Brighton Municipal Baths, and the Middle Brighton Pier and breakwater.

    Churches and historic homes can also be found on North Road, and a popular restaurant has a great view of Port Phillip Bay.

    Even at night, the twinkle of the beautiful Melbourne city skyline is a sight to be seen.

    By choosing Melbourne, and the beautiful beach of Brighton you are ensuring your wedding will be memorable for you as a married couple and for your guests, too.
