Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
Of the many pre-wedding complications a bride might experience, an acne breakout is among the worst. If you find yourself in such a muddle, reach for the zit-kicking elixirs found in this kit from the No. 1 acne-fighting brand in America, Proactiv. Proactiv Solution's 5-Step Acne Treatment System - the "Stress-Free Skin Wedding Kit," consists of three dermatologist-developed products that work together through the strength of science. This group of formulations includes prescription-strength benzoyl peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria at its source. And that's just for starters. When used in unison, these products harmonize to leave your skin clear and glowing. Bonus: There are two additional products to prevent blackheads, blemish flare-ups, and keep the glow going long after the honeymoon ends. Get the skinny on each step of this lifesaver kit — trust us, your wedding survival bag is not complete without it!
To guarantee that there are no cold feet at a wedding, buy some stylish socks for the groomsmen. Fun prints abound in men's sockwear, from those featuring vintage Mickey Mouse illustrations to adorable dogs to the Rolling Stones' iconic tongue-and-lips logo. Because stylish men's socks offer guys the primo opportunity to energize their ensembles, look for funky, colorful sock sets that will bring chic to their feet.
The dual traits of fun and quality are a rarity in men's socks, but we've curated a list of socks that accomplish both. Groomsmen socks make awesome wedding party presents, so seek out yours among the favorites that we found at ASOS, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
In an era of personalization, your love story can be customized with a unique wedding band. Sure, the engagement ring is the bling that grabs the initial attention, but the wedding band is the ring that truly symbolizes a lifetime union. Make it as special as your relationship by putting a personal spin on your wedding band. You can set your wedding ring apart by choosing from various metals, including yellow, white and rose gold rings. Those on a budget can even choose diamonds set in sterling silver, stainless steel or tungsten. Beyond diamonds, there are many gemstones that add color to a wedding band. We have scoured the inventory of unique rings to make our list of wedding bands that cost less than $500, including rings from Saks Fifth Avenue, Amazon and Neiman Marcus.
