The Best of the Web for Grooms – February 23, 2012

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Would you consider wearing a “mangagement” ring? It seems like every year, this trend rears its head back up. We wrote about this sales tactic last year and OneWed recently asked their male readers if they would consider wearing one. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this trend in the comment section below.

Just like this blog, our new book isn’t necessarily just for the guys. Take a look at what YourTango.com thought about Be the Man. They outlined three ways that the book can serve as the bride’s BFF.

If you’re stocking your reception or rehearsal dinner bar on a budget, you could do a lot worse than Costco’s Kirkland Bourbon. Just remember to drink responsibly or you may end up with this on your hands:

If you and your bride-to-be start to feel like marriage might not be a good idea, it’s best to talk about it far in advance of the wedding day. The last thing you want is for your friends and family to show up for your wedding that’s not taking place. In other words, don’t do what Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell did.

Lots of guys ask what the most important thing to know about marriage is. The truth is that there’s not just one key to happiness. According to Hitched Media, there’s 10. Check out their 10 commandments of marriage. We think number five is highly important. Communication is key!

Engagement Ring for the Groom? Don’t Believe the Sales Pitch

Monday, January 19th, 2009
We're all for changing wedding traditions. Just not this one.

We’re all for changing wedding traditions…just not this one.

With the economy in the dumps, companies in every industry are inventing ways to squeeze every penny they can out of their customers. The jewelry business is no different. It seems the latest popular sales pitch is trying to convince guys that the new fad is dudes wearing diamond engagement rings. Word to the wise: don’t fall for this guys!

Now, this isn’t a “promise ring” we’re talking about. Promise rings are a traditional way to state your intentions to marry before the engagement. You’ll often see these worn by high schoolers who are in love (or think they are) and are too young to be officially engaged. The rings in question in this blog are actual diamond engagement rings for men. Give me a break.

About two years ago when I was personally going through the ring-buying process, my fiance and I walked into a jewelry store (that will remain un-named) to check out some of the various ring styles and learn about the 4 c’s. The fast-talking salesman immediately took us for amateurs and proceeded to go on his rant about how men’s engagement rings were the new hot trend in weddings and yada yada yada. Luckily, we had done our homework and were aware of this deceptive tactic before we ever walked in the store. One of the key things to remember is that jewelry salespeople prey on young couples that are obviously shopping for engagement rings. The younger you look, the more ideal of a target you are. For my wife and I, we probably looked like we had just stepped out of middle school band practice…(laugh it up, when I’m 60, I’ll look 40).

For you future grooms out there that may be heading to the jewelry store soon – remember to always have  a plan and never let a slick salesperson control the situation. There’s nothing wrong with saying “I’m just looking.”
