They’re Here!!

I FINALLY have the CD with the majority of our reception photos! Some are unedited, some have the photographer’s logo, and they’re not very organized yet, but I HAVE THEM. For awhile there I thought this day might never come. I’m so excited to finally finish my recaps! 

Here’s a sneak peek of our fabulous reception (no thanks to the awful venue) with MUCH more to come:

Eeee, exciting, right?! Recaps will be finished up soon, although I can’t promise I’ll be able to post every day – Things are a bit crazy with the holidays and everything. I want to get them written as soon as possible, though, before I forget any more than I already have!

I’m officially BACK! :)

Sponsored Post: Five Variables That You Must Keep In Mind When Buying Diamonds

So, you wish to gift something special to your loved one and you have chosen to buy her diamonds. Diamonds can speak volumes if presented in the right form to a woman from a man. Diamonds signify purity, innocence, sacredness, brilliance, devotion, eternity and many other things. Consequently, there is no better gift that you can think of for her, which is also why you should visit this site and choose from the wide array of diamonds on show. However, the problem is that you do not know a lot about diamonds and also understand that diamonds can require a significant amount of investment. Hence, you have just realized that, in order for the diamond to have the right effect, you need to have a purchase plan in place. Having a purchase plan is one of the wisest decisions you can make because it would not only protect your investment but also keep you from deviating in other directions.

1.  Price:  
As you most probably have already realized, diamonds are an expensive proposition by any yardstick. Therefore, you need to make sure that you take care of your financial well being while purchasing diamonds for your beloved. Regardless of how much she loves diamonds, she will never appreciate your choice of spending everything to buy her a diamond.

2.  Size:  
Regardless of what you have been told by other men, size does matter. However, this does not mean that the size of the diamond has to be colossal because many women like practicality as much as show. Effectively, it just means that the size that you pick for the diamond should be balanced i.e. not too big and not too small. Therefore, your efforts should always be directed at getting her that perfectly sized diamond.

3.  Clarity:  
Clarity of a diamond determines its quality. Despite this all encompassing aspect of diamonds, some diamonds with mediocre clarity can also be used to create jewelry masterpieces, but only if the translucence is used in the right way.

4.  Color:  
It is not a given that every woman likes the white transparent diamond. On the contrary, colored stones are especially popular in the current fashion world because of numerous high profile personalities patronizing them.

5.  Shape:  
There are a variety of shapes that you can use diamonds in. The choice of shape is not an independent decision and depends on other previously mentioned choices such as the color of the diamond, its size, its cut and its clarity.

All of these aspects must be in harmony with each other for you to purchase a perfect diamond and create a truly magnificent piece of jewelry for your beloved.
