Designer Wedding Rings (Bands)

Although the groom and bride exchanging wedding rings on the wedding day is not an Islamic tradition, there are still some couples that choose to do it for the sake of novelty.

Some couples also like having an outward symbol of their union together, even though as I have said, this is unnecessary in Islamic culture and tradition.

However, if you choose to exchange rings then you should know that today platinum is considered a favored metal for designer wedding bands. It is more durable than gold and most couples today prefer it for a wedding band. However, it is significantly more expensive than gold and is almost twice the price of an 18-ct white gold band. The platinum designer wedding band is elegant and perfect for wedding bands.

Please read further for information on why platinum is favored for wedding bands:

Should Your Wedding Rings Be of Platinum Or Gold?
By Rich Keys

When considering the style of your wedding rings the metal from which they are made is often one of the most important decisions. There are many aspects to consider.

Gold is the most customary choice for wedding rings as it traditionally represents warmth and love, but symbolism aside it has materialistic features to mull over. Gold quality is ranked by carats; 9ct, 18ct, or 24ct. The most pure gold is 24k, but it is also the softest. The reverie of pure gold will soon be lost after the scratches and dents become noticeable in its once untainted glow. Also, the softness of 24ct gold makes the ring more susceptible to weak prongs. To ensure a lasting ring with low maintenance, opt for the 9ct or 18ct gold. A lower percent of gold is worth the assurance that the wedding ring will last the duration of the marriage. Other metals such as platinum, palladium and titanium are becoming a popular choice.

If the idea of having even a percentage of the metal in the ring vulnerable to damage is still unnerving, platinum is the only route. Being the strongest metals allows it to retain the symbolism in a more untraditional sense. The strength of the metal parallels the strength of the couple's bond of marriage. Also, the fact that is the strongest metal makes it a smart choice while the appealing sheen makes it an elegant option as well. Another benefit of platinum wedding rings is that they are 100% pure. Because platinum is not mixed with other metals as gold is, it is safe for those who have allergies. The one downfall of platinum is the price. It costs more than gold, but when shopping for wedding rings, the price is second in respect to longevity.

Platinum and gold do rule the wedding ring market, but other metals, especially in men's rings, are available. Tungsten is popular due to its lustrous polish and heavy feel. They allow the groom to wear a ring he is proud of while preserving masculinity. Titanium is also gaining notoriety. Like platinum and tungsten, titanium is of high quality and indisputable strength.

Of course, aesthetic qualities of the wedding ring will never be forgotten so there are additional points to consider. Many couples feel obligated to have matching wedding and engagement rings. Binding to this misconception that they must match puts restrictions on the limitless selections. Wearing the engagement ring on the right hand and the wedding ring on the left allows for two completely separate styles to shine yet retain their original meaning. Otherwise, if the styles match but the metals conflict, pairing the two together produces a bold statement that draws attention in a chic way. Also, bear in mind what styles and metals of jewelry the bride and groom wear regularly. If the bride wears primarily silver jewelry, a silver, platinum, or white gold ring would be the most practical option. Take into account the style of watch that the groom normally wears.

Whether the marriage begins with a diamond-encrusted platinum band or an elastic rubber band, the focal point of the wedding is the love between the bride and groom. The symbolism and beauty of the wedding rings come from the love bestowed on them by the new couple, not the market value.

Rich Keys writes about fashion and jewelery. If you are planning to buy your wedding rings online, then be sure to visit DiamondGeezer, where there is a wide choice of palladium, yellow and white gold, and platinum rings as well as the ability to design your own wedding ring.

Islamic Muslim Bridal Wear | Wedding Style Hijab

Today we focus on Islamic Muslim bridal wear for Muslim brides with wedding style hijab.

More and more Muslim brides are opting to wear the hijab for their nikkah ceremonies. This is because weddings these days are not totally segregated affairs with the men in one room and the women in the other room like decades ago. Today, it is usual for there to be some unintentional mixing during weddings.

So it is better if the bride is dressed appropriately during the nikkah ceremony. Of course, hopefully, the guests will also be equally attired modestly according to Islamic rules!

Fall Wedding Cakes | Islamic and Ethnic Inspired Designs

For the Muslim bride looking for inspiration for wedding cake designs, we have selected a few that have been inspired by various Muslim cultures.

Please scroll down for the wedding cakes gallery for Muslim inspired cake designs.

For an article that gives you great tips on how to select a perfect fall wedding cake, please read the following:

Delicious Tips For Fall Wedding Cakes

By Andrea B. McClure

One of the things you look for as a bride during your wedding planning is the perfect wedding cake. Some brides go with the traditional gateau. Others go for something unique that will match their theme. There is even the southern tradition of a groom cake. As you can see the ideal cake is different for each bride but then you really get into the details. There is the icing, the cake design, and the flavor of the cake itself. As the fall season is fast approaching the big trend is the autumn wedding cake. However there are many ways to achieve this confection. Here are some interesting cakes that may inspire your choice if you are getting hitched this season.

The all around perennial favorite is the chocolate cake. It is a classic that is very possible for it tempered sweetness and rich flavor. If you add on chocolate icing, the appeal trebles. Chocolate is popular during other times of the year but there is no other time it is more appropriate as a wedding cake as during the autumn and winter months. Chocolate is a deceptively simple confection and flavor as we think that it is quite limited in the way that it can be used. Funny enough, the truth is quite the opposite. There are several kinds of chocolate cake from German chocolate to chocolate mousse and the design options are quite varied. For the season try having the icing sculpted into familiar fall shapes like maple leaves and chocolate. The single color combined with these fun seasonal shapes produces a cake that is theme appropriate but gives an impression of understated elegance.

An interesting new trend is fall cake toppers. You can have the traditional groom and bride with a fall twist. The most obvious takes advantage of holiday motifs like Halloween or Thanksgiving. An interesting new trend is to go atypical using confections shaped like popular fruit like apples or pears and fall vegetables that are harvested like squash, pumpkin, corn, or even wheat. The result it sumptuous to look at and gives a cake a unique flair that sets it apart from its more traditional cousins.

Another interesting trend is the use of icing and confectionary decorations on fall wedding cakes. In short it is simply amazing. Cake makers are now making their creations into edible art recreating scenes of fall in all their glory. This is great for the bride wanting something that is one of a kind. For example the icing and candy is used to depict the branch of a tree with a full complement of realistic fall leaves and even wild life such as birds. This creates a truly dramatic cake. The truly amazing ones take it a step further by making the scenes or fall shapes 3D. One that I recently observed was designed to look like a pile or artfully arranged fall leaves sticking out from the basic architecture of the cake.

The bold bride can go even further for the perfect autumn cake by using seasonal flavors such as carrot cake, sweet potato, or even pumpkin. Done right by people with the proper know how this produces case with delicious and unique flavoring that will surely be remembered by guests. You can also go for more tame varieties like ginger, or spice cake.
