Well, I know for sure I have the attention of all girls out there!
So, point your man in the right direction.
After all your just helping him out right?
Helping him make an informed decision.
Giving him knowledge that could help him save money and make the purchase with pride. It’s pretty simple really. Allow me to introduce The four C’S!
Carat Weight: Diamonds are measured in carats. One carat equals approximately 1/5 of a gram. A point system is applied to carat weights with one carat equal to 100 points.
Cut: How much a diamond sparkles and shows it’s brilliance is determined by the cut. The proportion of the diamond and the amount of angles cut into the stone are reflected in grades from Poor to Excellent.
Clarity: Flawless means no flaws are visible to the human eye. Flaws are cracks, cloudiness, chips and marks throughout the diamond. The more flaws a diamond has the lower the classification of clarity.
Colour: Classified from the ideal Colourless through to Light Yellow.
That’s it, that’s all! Just remember the 4 C’s!

How do you tell family and friends where your wedding registry is without seeming tacky?
Already, I’ve seen some conflict to this statement on other wedding websites saying it is presumptuous for you to think that everyone is going to bring you a gift. Lets get real here, who shows up to a wedding without a gift of sorts. Cash in a card, a present wrapped in pretty paper or a thoughtful, handmade creation of some sort? No-one.
So, without further adieu I give to you, the latest trend in letting everyone know where you are registered. This helps your guests by reducing shopping time (we all have busy lives) and directs them to a selection of pre-approved gifts that eliminates the chance of you unwrapping a bunch of toasters!
Ask any wedding industry expert and they will tell you it is considered faux pas to send details of your registry with your wedding invitations.
In the tech savvy world we live in, why not send out your “Save the Date” cards with details of a wedding website they can access for further information. Your website can provide details of the day and time, location, accommodation in the area, maps on how to get there, photographs, a blog, manage RSVP’s and of course provide links to your registry information!
For your older generation guests who perhaps don’t know how to send a text message or what the internet is, word of mouth is the way to go. Tell both of your parents where you are registered, they take more phone calls than anyone else preceding your wedding. Guaranteed the grandparents will give them a call! Tell your best man and bridesmaids also, the more people spreading the word for you the better. But be careful, don’t tell other guests where you are registered unless they specifically ask. This is considered too direct and not a class act!
Alternatively, you can pay money for more features or a better design. If you can’t get what you want from a free site check out www.theweddinghandbag.com, www.wedquarters.com or www.elegantweddingwebsites.com to name just a few!
I hope this helps the couples out there who are struggling with this dilemma.
