May 2013 Brides

Recommended Posts

Correct, I just don't know if I like the first layout (4 baguettes and 3 rounds) or the second layout( 3 baguettes and 4 rounds)...minor detail I know. And I didn't even think about it until my jeweler asked if i had a preference.

 that is a toughy.. The smallest details are always the hardest.. I think the 4 round will produce more bling if that's what you want to go for.

Have they ever made bands close to this style so you could see what each way will really look like?

Choco,

I do belive rounds catch more light and therefore have more sparkle.. But i like the look of the 4 baguettes and 3 rounds personally

Thanks for your input, I think i'm leaning towards the same.  You and MissB are correct in that rounds have the largest sparkle factor of any cut, but it's not a determing factor for me which maybe be obvious sicne I chose an asscher for the main cut in my e-ring.

Due my inability to find a wedding band that I actually like Justin and I have decide to go custom for both our bands and I will have my Asscher reset into a 3-stone as shown.  Iâ€m in the design phase and I'm stuck on one minor detail as to how I want my baguettes and rounds to alternate.  Let me know if you have a preference…

Im torn on this!!!!  I like the 3 rounds layout better but i think when its actaully lined up with the ering i like the 3 bagettes better. I dont know why but i just think that having a round diamond in the center of the band directly beneath the asscher throws it off a little seeing as the asscher is also round. geometrically speaking i think it would look better having the bagette line up center under the asscher... does that make sense? maybe im just crazy?

Thought I'd post one for you ladies...Have a great week!700

 Ahh.. I see exactly what your saying.. that makes perfect sense.. I think that's why I too thought the 1st was more visually appealing. Tova, you have a tough decision on yours hands.

thanks for posting.... my sentiments exactly and when I expressed this to my Fi (almost verbatim of what you wrote) he looked at me like I was crazy. But my Asscher is actually an octagon in shape and my reset will emphasize this with the prongs that I'm using.  But I totally get the geometric symmetry that your referring to.  And since no one else was bringing this up, I thought that maybe it didn't matter, but it does.

I feel like i havent been on BDW for a long time!!! I missed everyone and have sooo many posts to catch up on but i have been so busy. My wedding social is in just under 3 weeks and is driving me crazy!!!! So many sleepless stressful nights and still so much to do. Ive barely been able to work on any wedding stuff. Ive just been doing my invites cause i want them out asap. Just need to come up with a belly band and i have no idea what to do. Anyone have any ideas for me?

 

This is a rough draft of the pocketfold

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
