We know you are working hard to look flawless on your big day.
Every bride-to-be wants to look flawless on her big day, but achieving that perfect glow usually takes a lot of preparations.

The ‘bridal shower’ is a great excuse to organise a small afternoon party where female friends and members of the family can spend some time with the bride prior to the wedding. If you want to host a successful shower, it is important to respect a few key rules of etiquette.
It’s pretty much accepted at this point in time that everyone wears their wedding ring on the left ring finger. But why? And do bride and grooms absolutely have to? Here, the story behind left hand ring placement and whether or not you have to follow this custom.
The story of wearing your wedding ring on the left hand can be traced back to ancient Roman and Greek times (really!). Back in that day, the Romans believed that the vein in the ring finger (the fourth finger) on the left hand ran directly to one’s heart. Because of this belief, they called that vein the “vena amoris” or vein of love. Naturally, to solidify a union based on love, they’d place the ring on that finger that housed the vein of love to signify the romance the newly married couple shares. A pretty adorable physical representation of two hearts being connected, don’t you think?
Western cultures have pretty much accepted this age old wives tale to be true, wearing the engagement and then the wedding rings on that left ring finger.
Many people in Europe, however, choose to wear their wedding rings on the right hand’s ring finger. Ultimately, the choice is yours!
As for wearing a wedding ring, it’s completely up to your personal preference, but it’s of course a nice way to symbolize your union. If not, you may make like some celebs and get a tattoo on that finger to signify your marriage — you can even do both if you want!
