Shopping for Engagement Rings

by aiowedding on February 6, 2014

Shopping for an engagement ring can be an exciting but daunting task for most couples. Thanks to the eCommerce industry, finding the perfect ring for an engagement is made easy. When shoppers visit an online jewelry store, they can immediately begin creating the perfect piece of jewelry that represents true love and preparation for a life long commitment. Design your engagement ring online is an example of a popular trend in the modern jewelry industry.

First and foremost, the setting of an engagement ring is selected according to personal style. Some common setting options include halo, antique, pave and solitaire. The setting simply refers to how the main diamond piece is to be displayed. Shoppers actually have the option of customizing the shape of the central diamond stone. For example, diamonds can be cut into shapes such as pear, oval, heart, round, spade and rectangular. After selecting the design features of an engagement ring, it’s time to move on to the technical specifications of a diamond stone. Shoppers need to select the proper cut, clarity, color and carat. Each diamond stone has a unique combination of these four factors that ultimately influence the final sale price of the ring.

Additionally, engagement rings can be customized according to the base or setting material. White gold and traditional yellow gold are some common options for the band of engagement rings. Some rings can also be enhanced with several pieces of colorful gemstones that add stunning beauty, especially for an engaged lady’s ring.

There are some who argue that Valentines Day is an entirely invented occasion- dreamed up by greeting card companies in order to take even more money from us. There might be some truth to this, but anyone who uses it as an excuse to ignore (or more likely, to forget) Valentines Day is probably someone you shouldn’t date.

The joy of Valentines Day is infectious, and in the weeks leading up to that special day in February, you can barely walk down the street without being confronted with red love hearts and reminders to buy your special someone something special. Unsurprisingly, Hollywood has gotten in on the act, using the occasion for many Valentines Day themed TV shows, and even a whole movie about the day– even if it’s considered to be one of the worst movies ever made (although it inspired a very amusing parody).

How To Find The Perfect Indian Wedding Outfit

by aiowedding on January 23, 2014

India is a very vast place, so trying to run around in the hopes of finding the perfect wedding gown for your good self might be a bit of a challenge. There are plenty of things you can do in aid of your search that can ultimately give you a much bigger selection of dresses to choose from. Here we have a look at the main places you can try out when looking for a dress for the all-important big day.

Indian Wedding Outfit

Talk To A Friend

More and more people as of late have been taking to their sewing boxes and exercising their crafting skills. Not all people have the edge you might be looking for, but the chances are you may know one or two people who just might be able to knock something up for you. The benefits to doing this is that it is likely to cost less than a custom piece from a shop, plus it gives you a chance to have some extra time together.

Peruse Market Stalls

Market stalls are an amazing way to find a whole host of different items, including the likes of clothing and bridal wear. India has a vast expanse of stalls you could try out, and you might even find a handful of potential candidates. The beauty of market stalls is that if the price they are after is a tad too steep you can try your hand at haggling them for a better figure. Some are a bit strict with this but many will lower the fee, even if it is just a small amount.

Check Out The Local Shops

Shops are a pretty obvious choice for any bride for several reasons. Shops allow you to return your item if you need to, and have fitting rooms so you can try before you buy. This isn’t always the cheapest choice, especially if the dress you’ve fallen for happens to be one of the priciest. If you’re lucky you might just come across one or two shops that have a sale on, or are trying to get rid of last season’s favourites. It might also be possible for you to pay for the dress in instalments instead of all at once.

Talk To A Professional

There are a whole host of trained dress makers out there that can make your vision a reality in just a few consolations. They can talk to you in depth about the plans you have, and work around any issues you have. This will not be cheap as each piece is custom designed specifically for you and your figure, and could take several man hours to complete. This can also be made worse if there is a tight deadline. Arguably, however, a custom dress is more than worth the money in most cases.

For more information on where to find Indian wedding gowns, or to have a look through some galleries for inspiration, simply have a look around the web or visit Traditions Online.

How to Take Better Photographs

by aiowedding on January 21, 2014

Having a top of the line camera is no guarantee that you will be able to take stunning photographs every time you push the button. There has to be a certain understanding of the techniques involved in photography, but in order to take great pics, you do need to understand the equipment you are using first, What that means is actually taking the time to read the instruction manual of your camera to see what each and every function on there will deliver. Even the most basic of understanding will help you improve, as you will be able to grasp when certain features should be used and when they shouldn’t.

Most modern camera have automatic settings for such things as focus and lighting. It’s best to stick with those until you become proficient enough to understand how changing those settings can affect the overall look of your photographs. The flash is another element that most people don’t properly understand, with many simply flicking the setting off the minute they get outdoors. Using the flash outside can actually go a long way towards improving your pictures, especially if you are in a low light situation. Using the fill-flash setting when the subject is within five feet cam mean a vast improvement of your finished shot.

Instead of just going the point and click route, take some time to “frame” the picture that you are about to take. It’s easy to get focused on the subject of your shot and forget about what is going on in the background. Look at the subject from different angles and pay attention to what else appears in the shot. Something seemingly nondescript in the background may end up adding a whole new dimension to your finished shot. You should also keep in mind that the subject doesn’t always have to be front and center, as placing them on either side of the shot can create a whole different look.

This makes choosing the gift with care very important for it to evoke that special feeling of love and care. There are several views on the selection of 5th anniversary gifts. The year is special as it marks the passage of a stage in your married life – 5 years is a long time and happy couples have reasons to smile after the 5th year. A gift that marks this occasion will naturally have to be special as well.

There are various suggestions put forward by friends and relatives about 5th anniversary gifts. Some say these ought to be traditional.

These items also signify the strength and love shared between couples through the first five years of their married life.  If you opt for traditional gift ideas in wood there are plenty of options that are often unique and innovative. One such idea that I found unique is a gift of wooden watches. There are timepieces available which I knew but the idea of a wrist watch in wood is definitely an item to look out for.
