Free Wedding Jewelry

by Azure

I was at the gym the other day and I picked up the February issue of Lucky Magazine (magazines are really the only reason I get on the eliptical). Anyway, I noticed that their sweepstakes for the month included some great jewelry from Fortunoff, Ritana, and these sweet earrings from ice.com that just scream wedding day to me. There are two lessons here: 1) Go to the gym, it’s good for you. 2) Sometimes we can get a little tunnel vision when it comes to weddings. But take some time...

Ringing Success

by Azure

When I was getting married, the ring was the last thing I thought about. I think it was about a month before the wedding before it dawned on my fiancé and me that the rings didn’t just magically appear on the ring bearer’s pillow (which, ironically, I had thought enough about to get from my sister). Now, I’m happy with my wedding ring, and I assume my husband is as well, but I can’t say I have the same affection for it that I do for my engagement ring. If you’re looking for...
