One of the best things about summer, for us, is ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream! If you’re having a summer wedding and you love ice cream, then how about a fun ice cream parlour inspired wedding theme?
We love the pastel shades of ice cream and they work so well for wedding styling. A vintage ice cream van, ice cream cone cupcakes, and some ice cream inspired decorations, bunting and honeycomb garlands will look fab for your fun ice cream parlour inspired wedding theme.
Choosing your wedding rings is a special experience, and an important decision that will endure long after your special day is over. The wedding bands you choose are much more than just part of the ceremony on your wedding day – they are a lasting symbol of your never-ending love for one another. For this reason many couples choose to have matching wedding rings to show just how in sync they are. Rebecca Baillie of Laings of Glasgow looks at the pros and cons of matching your wedding ring to your partner’s.
The Pros of Matching Wedding Rings
One of a Pair
Matching wedding rings are typically the more traditional option – it shows that you (and your ring) are one of a pair and can act as a symbol of your bond to each other. Yellow gold bands are a classic option as there are many choices out there for both men and women.
The simplest way to match your rings is to keep it classic with a court shaped wedding ring. For ladies a more delicate 2mm is perfect, while men can make more of a statement with a masculine 5-6mm. A pair of matching wedding bands is the perfect choice for all those hopeless romantics out there.
Bling It Up
Many brides-to-be dream of adding an extra touch of sparkle to their style with a diamond set wedding ring, but does that mean you have to give up your dream of matching your ring to your partner’s? No, not at all!
We all know that many guys are partial to a bit of bling and retailers have finally realised that they’ve been missing out. There are so many options out there for diamond set wedding rings for men that neither of you have to worry about losing your sparkle.
If you decide that yellow or rose gold is the one for you it can look extra special when your ring matches your partner’s. White gold, platinum and palladium have arguably been the most popular choices in recent years, but the timeless appeal of yellow gold and the soft hue of rose gold is definitely making a comeback.
