Presenting a diamond ring can be one of the grandest gestures a man will make so it should be almost perfect. Many choose Valentine's Day as a romantic time to pop the question. With February 14 right around the corner, selecting the ring is a difficult and anxiety-filled process. Educating yourself before purchasing that once-in-a-lifetime piece will ensure you get exactly what you want (and what she wants).
If you're getting married, you need to think about your will. In Ontario and some other provinces, getting married revokes your existing will. While there are limited exceptions to this, the document sitting on your (or your lawyer's) shelf is likely a number of years old and does not take this into account.
I know, I know -- we are supposed to look for a venue first, set our wedding date, and then take care of the rest, like photography and all the other fun stuff.

If, years later, the most memorable part of the wedding is your speech, it means it was terrible. Unless you're a professional comedian. Which most of you are not.
If I received a card in the mail advising me that I was not invited to someone's wedding, I would toss that bad boy straight into the recycle bin.

Mothers often panic when faced with having to search for a dress for their child's wedding. Most mothers don't have the same figure they had when they were brides. The good news is that if you know which styles best suit your figure, you are more than halfway there! To make the process easier, I have listed specific figure issues or body types.
