Put A Ring On It

We talk a lot about weddings on this blog: themes, decor, food, flowers, and of course invitations. However, we never really talk about the part of your big day that will stay with you for the rest of your life. The rings! With so many gorgeous options out there it can be difficult to find the perfect rings for you and your fiance. Here is a Patchette’s key piece of advice on how to pick out a uniquely beautiful set.

“If you and your significant other have discussed marriage (or you think it’s a strong possibility) go ahead and take a trip to a local jewelry store. TRY ON EVERYTHING. Solitaire, halo, three-stone, gold, platinum, round, square, oval, elaborate, simple. You might have an idea of what you like on Pinterest, but seeing it on your finger is a whole different story.”
