Tis the season to be engaged! Jewelry stores are filled with silver and gold, sparkling with a diamond (or diamonds) awaiting a ring finger to adorn. According to our infographic, 43 percent of couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. Hence, why it’s no surprise that more couples get engaged during the holiday season than any other time of the calendar year. Perhaps, it’s one of these top reasons why your significant other proposed:

  • You didn’t suspect anything when he/she went out to do some holiday shopping.
  • It was the perfect opportunity to ask your parents’ permission.
  • Having your family around made it more memorable.

Did your significant other pop the question? Let us know in the poll below.

You’re bound to fall in love with its unique style, craftsmanship and character, but what if you got a secondhand ring when you thought you’d get a first rate? Let is know in the poll below which type of ring you would prefer.

After checking “pick a cake” off your wedding to-do list, the next step is to pick a cake topper. Cake toppers are meant to accent your cake and wedding theme but also show off you and your husband’s personality together.  Whether you choose an animal cake topper like the ones pictured or a floral cake topper that accents your theme, remember it’s all comes down to how the cake tastes!

The 1980s neon color trend has made its way into fashion and slowly into weddings this year. We are seeing more and more neon cakes, flowers, invitations, decor, etc. because these bright colors (pink, orange, green and yellow) add a little extra flavor and pizazz. What do you think of this trend–tacky or classy? Let us know in the comments below!
