Engagement

A step taken towards a lifelong commitment, the exchange of rings marks the beginning of a brand new chapter of love.

  • Choosing your engagement ring?
  • I'm getting engaged! What do I wear?
  • Gift ideas for your fiance!

A symbol of everlasting love, the engagement ring holds great emotional significance for the bride. Choosing the perfect engagement ring may sometimes seem like an overwhelming task: after all, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime purchase and has to be done right!

Make sure you pick something that you'd love to look at every single day. Given below are simple mantras that every would-be bride should abide by while selecting her ring.

THE METAL

The traditional and timeless yellow gold, the allure of the more contemporary white gold or platinum or the subtle gleam of rose gold? Of late, mixed metal rings are also gaining favour as they are more versatile and match other accessories as well!

THE MAKE AND STYLE OF THE RING

A wedding band, a simple ring adorned by a scintillating diamond or two, a vintage ring drawing inspiration from the yesteryears, a traditional ring steeped in heritage, or a contemporary style with the ever-classy solitaire - the choice is yours!

Even if you want to go the traditional way for your pheras, the engagement function provides the perfect opportunity to experiment with the new trends. Sarees or lehengas are definitely favoured options as engagement ensembles. However, here are three reigning trends that are becoming really popular amongst the new-age brides!

Colour

Don't wish to move too further away from the traditional look and feel? Go for off-beat colours! Pastel shades like mint, peach or ivory are hugely popular and so are blue and orange. Figurines, embroidered and floral motifs have always been popular choices in this regard.

Style

Crop tops with skirts have emerged as a popular choice among brides. Wear them just like that or drape a dupatta, pair your ensemble with ethno-contemporary jewellery, and your striking look is ready!

Jewellery

One another option is to pair your stunning ensemble with heavy kundan jewellery! This type of jewellery is extremely versatile and goes with almost everything – lehengas and cocktail dresses alike! Step out with elan to greet your guests on the day of your ring-exchange ceremony!

While Indian weddings are grand affairs and held with much pomp and gaiety amidst family members and friends, you can make it more intimate for just the two of you by gifting your perfect partner the perfect gift. A gift chosen carefully with all the love in your heart will create a beautiful memory to be cherished forever.

The most important thing to be kept in mind is to find a style that suits your guy's personality and preferences. Be it one which is classy and traditional or be it the offbeat and quirky ones, there are a plethora of fabulous options for gifts for 'Him'. Here's our pick of three items which make wonderful wedding gifts for your fiance.

A dinner

Plan a dinner for the two of you, and when we say the ‘two of you’, we mean just the two of you! Weddings, how much ever fun they are, can be very hectic and chaotic, and we assure you your guy will love nothing else than a few moments with you alone. After all, nothing says "I love you" than a romantic dinner under the stars!

Wine

Nothing tastes better than old wine and if your guy is a wine connoisseur, then this makes the perfect gift for him. You can make it even more special by picking up a wine which can age in your very own marital home. Open it when you are celebrating your 10th or 25th anniversary!

Personalized gifts

While a lot of couples choose to engrave their names or sweet messages for one another on wedding rings, you can choose to do so on cufflinks and pens too. The best part about such gifts is that your significant other can cherish the same even 50 years down the line!

Go with one from our list or with your gut feeling, your effort will be totally worth it when you get to witness his eyes light up in happiness as you hand over the gift box to him!
