Here’s a good article from News Usa on wedding bands for every personality.

It’s one of the toughest decisions for any bride and groom — and, no, we don’t mean where to seat feuding relatives at the wedding reception.

We’re talking wedding bands, symbols of eternal love, and the most important pieces of jewelry a man and woman will ever own.

In the search for the perfect wedding bands, many couples turn to platinum to ensure they are getting the best value for their money. With a bevy of styles and a range of prices — a platinum band can be purchased starting at $1,000 — it’s easy to find a ring that best suits the bride’s personality.

“No matter what ‘type’ you are,” says style expert Michael O’Connor, “you’re guaranteed of getting the best possible ring for the price because platinum, being naturally white, will not fade or change color, lasting over a lifetime of wear.”

Because as much as you may think no two people have ever been more in love than you are – hey, look at the size of that engagement ring! – the truth is that it could be less than smooth sailing ahead if you’re not on the same page when it comes to financial matters.

“Couples have a very hard time talking about money,” Joan Atwood, a Hofstra University professor of marriage and family therapy bemoaned on an NPR “Money Coach” segment on the issue. “I would say it’s the last taboo.”

What’s not to love about weddings from a guest perspective!? Dancing, great food, open bars, being surrounded by loved ones…the list could go on. But wedding party favors really seal the deal when it comes to leaving a memorable impression on your guests.

Plus, these gifts go way beyond a thank-you card in showing your friends and family how grateful you are that they attended your wedding. Moral of the story: make your favors count (and reusable!).
