I don’t think there’s ever a right or wrong way to propose to someone or to want to be proposed to yourself (heck, people even are proposing to themselves!). Whether it’s a big, extravagant affair with fireworks or agreeing to get married because all your friends are – like my parents did – whatever your personal preference on the matter is absolutely fine. But in an age where technology is our best friend and opportunities and innovative ways to do things are more common than ever, it’s not surprising that people are people are paving the way for a more unique proposal experience.
A surprising new trend for women has emerged and it’s all about loving and appreciating yourself. It’s the rise of the self-love ring; a ring symbolizing a lifelong commitment to your own happiness. Some women have even taken their newfound appreciation for themselves to the next level – with a solo wedding! This practice, known as sologamy, is said by its supporters to affirm one’s own value, leading to a happier and more fulfilling life. We’ve teamed up with Angelic Diamonds, retailers of bespoke diamond rings, to take a closer look at this emerging trend and how women are celebrating themselves in the modern age.
Ever since I was in school, I was adamant that I would never get married. A friend and I were always the ones who would get up on our high horses and be like, “nope, hella no, no way, we independent women”.

I’m not too sure.
Weddings can quite frankly be an extortionate amount of money and something not all of us can invest that much in and unless you’re a millionaire with that sort of money going spare, there’s so much involved in wedding planning that it’s quite difficult for just 2 families (sometimes 1, depending on who is paying!) to deal with. I know for a fact that if and when I get married, I’ll be keeping it small, not going over-board and doing anything and everything I can to save those pennies. But just because we want to save, certainly doesn’t mean we can’t have beautiful weddings! From the hen party to the reception, there are tons of ways you can save but still have the wedding of your dreams.
If you want to plan a modern wedding day, you’ve come to the right place! So many people are going for vintage style/shabby chic weddings, that the modern wedding has taken a back seat. However, if you want a wedding that’s different from this rest, this could be the perfect idea for you! Take a look and see what you think:
Ice sculptures aren’t including in many weddings. I mean, they can be a little pricey. However, they look amazing and are perfect for a modern wedding. You can have virtually any sculpture you like, so make sure you think about themes before you splash out on one. You can have hearts, rings, a bride and groom and more. This will definitely make your wedding day stand out! Continue reading “My Must Haves For a Modern Wedding Day”
