Wedding jewellery is another important aspect of your wedding. From wedding rings to accessories required for the bride, groom and the wedding party.
More recently Brides have chosen the wedding jewellery as the gift, for her Bridesmaids and Maid of Honour. This way she has full control of the jewellery worn and is able to offer a very special memento of the wedding to her friends. The groom also offers cufflinks or tie pins to his Best Man and Groomsmen.
Choosing your ring can be a little overwhelming, but the important thing to remember is that these are the rings you plan on wearing for life. So remember to opt for your own tastes and not necessarily the fashions of today. Consider whether you plan on wearing them every day, or just for special occasions, as this will determine whether you want them hard wearing or jewelled.
The exchanging of rings has been a tradition for many years and it is considered one of the binding parts of the ceremony. In some cultures the ring is a symbol of the promise of love, honour and fidelity.
The Exchanging of Rings Ceremony usually takes place after the exchanging as vows. Often when couples choose the write their own vows, they will also write the Exchanging of Rings Ceremony. This time is often used for the more adventurous of couples, looking to add a bit of ‘different’ to their wedding. Some couples who wish to scuba dive during their ceremony would perform their ring exchange ceremony underwater, while others who wish to sky dive or even bungy jump would usually exchange their rings and then jump immediately afterwards.
In modern times it has become a common practice to have a double ring ceremony where the groom also receives a ring. However you choose for this ceremony to take place, you can remember that you may have as much input in to how this part of your ceremony is conducted.
