  • Use Your Tax Refund Estimate in Your Wedding Budget

    shutterstock 113785513One of the best times of the year is fast approaching: tax return season! We know how much planning a wedding can cost, which is why most couples opt to stick to a strict budget. However, if you’re planning a wedding for this spring or summer, remember to take your tax refund estimate into account. You can use this money to significantly supplement your wedding budget if you need or want to. After all, you only get to have the wedding of your dreams once, so you should make it count. Here are a few ways you can incorporate your tax refund estimate into your wedding budget:

    1. Matching Wedding Rings

    Have you had your heart set on a pair of matching wedding rings that were originally out of your budget? Allocate some of your tax refund to this part of your budget. After all, this is one of the most permanent parts of your wedding. You’ll wear these rings forever, so you shouldn’t settle -- just like you didn’t settle for your fiance. Get the matching wedding rings that you’ll never tire staring at, and with My Trio Rings' already affordable prices, you won't have any regrets. 

    2. Ceremony and Reception

    Did you have to make cuts to your original wedding plans because of lack of funds? Now that you know your tax refund estimate, see what you can afford to incorporate back into the wedding of your dreams. Use it for a little splurge or two on things that are important to you - the fresh flowers along the aisle or the DJ or band that knows how to groove and can play your wedding song perfectly. If you’re not sure what to use the money on, ask yourself this question: when I look back in 10 years, what will I wish I’d done differently at my wedding? Will you wish you’d used fresh flowers instead of imitation? If not, find somewhere else to invest your money. One option is to invest it into a professional photographer who will capture the photos you’ll look at for a lifetime.

    3. Honeymoon

    If you have already planned the wedding you’ve always wanted, save the money from your tax refund and use it on your honeymoon! A lot of couples opt to spend less on their ceremony and reception so that they can spare no expense on their first trip as a married couple. Your tax refund estimate can open up a lot of doors for you --instead of going to Florida, maybe now you can go to Hawaii or Jamaica. The money can also allow you to try once-in-a-lifetime experiences like skydiving on your trip that would otherwise be out of your budget. Maybe you’ve been married for a while and postponed your honeymoon until you had enough funds. If so, your tax refund might present the perfect opportunity!

    4. Vow Renewal

    Perhaps you were married years ago, but you weren’t able to have quite the wedding you wanted because of money limitations. If so, now may be the right time to celebrate. Use your tax refund estimate to plan a vow renewal ceremony on your anniversary. This way, you can finally have that dream wedding. You can even get new matching wedding rings to commemorate the occasion!

    Before you walk down the aisle, make sure you have the perfect set of matching wedding rings.

  • Best Places to Propose in Paris

    ISS 8377 02919If you’re really looking to outdo yourself with a proposal, there’s no better place than the most romantic city in the world: Paris. The capital of France gets a lot of hype, and, trust me, all of it is well-deserved. This is a city full of life, love, culture, history, and art. You’ll never be bored. Even walking from one destination to another will feel exciting and life-changing. Paris is the essence of all things French, so get ready to eat lots of cheese and bread, drink delicious wine, and be blown away. Here are the best places to propose in Paris:

    1. Eiffel Tower

    When you think of Paris, the Eiffel Tower is probably the first thing that pops into your mind. Proposing at the here may be a cliché, but it’s a cliché for a reason. Make your way to the top and get a breathtaking, panoramic view of Paris. You can try to time your visit so you reach the top as the sun is setting over Paris, which makes for an even more romantic view. After you present her with one of our solitaire diamond rings and pop the question, get a glass of champagne to celebrate at the champagne bar on the top floor. If you’d rather propose in front of the Eiffel Tower, I recommend choosing a grassy spot for a nighttime picnic and waiting until it lights up.

    2. Seine River

    If you want to really capture the essence of Paris, take a cruise on the Seine River. This will give you amazing views of Paris’ most impressive monuments like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Pont Neuf, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and more. There are many different type of tours offered, so you’re bound to find one that appeals to you and fits your budget. You can simply take a narrated tour or you can take a dinner cruise. If you’re really feeling extravagant, you can charter a river boat and have your own private tour of the city. Sounds amazing, right?

    3. Pont des Arts

    The Pont des Arts is wooden pedestrian bridge that crosses the Seine River and leads to the Louvre. You’ve probably seen this bridge many times in pictures: it’s the bridge with all the locks. It’s the place where couples come to memorialize their love by attaching a lock onto the bridge with their initials and throwing the key into the river. This bridge also offers a magnificent view of Paris with the Eiffel Tower in the distance. Sounds like the perfect place to ask for your sweetheart to marry you, doesn't it? After she says yes, show her that you’ve also brought a lock for you to attach to the bridge as a newly engaged couple.

    Do you have any suggestions for Parisian places to propose? Just make sure you’ve looked through our selection of solitaire diamond rings before getting down on one knee!

  • The Historical Significance of Diamond Engagement Rings

    diamond engagement ringsThink of the last time you heard of someone getting engaged without a diamond engagement ring. Can you even think of an instance? It’s possible you or one of your friends had a spontaneous engagement and then bought the diamond engagement ring later, but the ring usually occupies an important place in the engagement story.

    Have you ever stopped and thought about why? Why do men give women a diamond engagement ring to solidify an engagement? I’ve told you the marketing story behind the popularity of diamonds, but there’s another narrative that’s just as important and intriguing.

    Until relatively recently, marriage was a necessity for women who wanted to have a secure economic and societal position. A broken engagement was not just a personal embarrassment but a risk to a woman's future marriage prospects and financial stability. Because of this, “breach of promise to marry" laws were created in the United States to protect women from canceled marriage plans. According to these laws, a man’s promise to marry a woman was seen as a legally binding contract. This allowed a women to sue her fiancé if he broke off the engagement and left her seen as "damaged" in the public eye. 

    Starting in the 1930s, states began to abolish "breach of promise" laws, and now it is rare for someone to sue for a broken engagement (though it does still happen occasionally). Around the same time, diamond engagement rings began to gain in popularity. Margaret F. Brinig, a law professor from the University of Notre Dame, wrote about this connection in her paper, "Rings and Promises":

    "The diamond ring rapidly changed from a relatively obscure token of affection to what amounted to an American tradition...

    The change in demand for diamond engagement rings may therefore be explained by an increase in need for such a bond because of the abolition of a cause of action for breach of marriage promise."

    The theory is that women started to require collateral to seal the promise to marry once these laws began to disappear. That’s when the idea of giving your bride-to-be a small, sparkling ring became popular. The diamond rings provided a small cushion of protection so the woman would at least have something if the man chose to leave.

    Not a very romantic take on engagements, is it? Think about how far we’ve come from this mentality. Now, women and men have more options about who and when they marry, and diamond engagement rings are not a symbol of a legal agreement but as a symbol of commitment and love.

  • Best Places to Propose in Trinidad

    places to propose in trinidadJust imagine: sand beneath your feet, wind in your hair, sun on your back, and the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean before you. Sounds like paradise, right? Welcome to Trinidad, the southernmost island in the Caribbean. The beautiful beaches are just one aspect of Trinidad. This island has so much more to offer, which is why it’s the next stop in our places to propose series! Whether you live in Trinidad or you plan on visiting soon, we’re giving you a list of the ultimate spots to pop the question. Let’s get started!

    1. Maracas Bay

    If you’re looking for the ideal Caribbean beach experience, Maracas Bay is it. Even though it’ll take you about an hour to get there from Port of Spain, it’ll feel like no time at all. The scenic, mountainous drive is all part of the experience. You can grab lunch at one of the dozens of Bake and Shark huts, which will serve you a Trinidadian native dish of deep-fried shark. After a day of lounging and relaxing on the sand, turn to your partner and present her with one of our glittering diamond rings.

    2. Royal Botanical Gardens

    If you’re looking for an idyllic setting for a proposal, consider the royal botanical gardens in Port of Spain. These botanical gardens are part of a larger park called the Queen’s Park Savannah. The park itself features mansions from the Spanish colonial era. After entering the park, you can stroll into the gardens for a serene experience. There’s no fee, and you’re free to do as you please. You can bring a picnic, take a close look at all the flowers, or just sit and relax. We promise you won’t be disappointed by your surroundings when you get down on one knee and take out one of our diamond rings.

    3. Paria Falls

    If you and your partner are up for a long and challenging hike, we recommend going to Paria Falls. This hike will take you about seven hours there and back, so it’s not to be taken lightly. However, the experience of the hike and the views of the end destination make it all worth it. During the hike to the falls, you’ll see some interesting trees and plants, as well as tropical birds like macaws and parrots. At the end of your long journey, the view of the crystal-clear cascading water will take your breath away. That’s when you should pop the question! She’ll be so exhausted and excited that she won’t expect a proposal.

    4. Caroni Swamp

    Boat tours are available everyday from dawn until dusk so you can experience the wonder of the Caroni Swamp. We recommend you schedule your tour at dusk because that’s when the Scarlet Ibis, Trinidad’s national bird, comes in to roost. You’ll be amazed by the number of Scarlet Ibis that will fly in and the roost like flowers on the trees. They’ll fly in during sunset, which makes for one truly romantic moment. Don’t let it go to waste. Propose right then and there.

    Don’t forget: we ship worldwide, including to Trinidad and Tobago. Make sure you’ve looked through our selection of diamond rings for the perfect one before you propose!

  • Best Places to Propose in Trinidad

    places to propose in trinidadJust imagine: sand beneath your feet, wind in your hair, sun on your back, and the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean before you. Sounds like paradise, right? Welcome to Trinidad, the southernmost island in the Caribbean. The beautiful beaches are just one aspect of Trinidad. This island has so much more to offer, which is why it’s the next stop in our places to propose series! Whether you live in Trinidad or you plan on visiting soon, we’re giving you a list of the ultimate spots to pop the question. Let’s get started!

    1. Maracas Bay

    If you’re looking for the ideal Caribbean beach experience, Maracas Bay is it. Even though it’ll take you about an hour to get there from Port of Spain, it’ll feel like no time at all. The scenic, mountainous drive is all part of the experience. You can grab lunch at one of the dozens of Bake and Shark huts, which will serve you a Trinidadian native dish of deep-fried shark. After a day of lounging and relaxing on the sand, turn to your partner and present her with one of our glittering diamond rings.

    2. Royal Botanical Gardens

    If you’re looking for an idyllic setting for a proposal, consider the royal botanical gardens in Port of Spain. These botanical gardens are part of a larger park called the Queen’s Park Savannah. The park itself features mansions from the Spanish colonial era. After entering the park, you can stroll into the gardens for a serene experience. There’s no fee, and you’re free to do as you please. You can bring a picnic, take a close look at all the flowers, or just sit and relax. We promise you won’t be disappointed by your surroundings when you get down on one knee and take out one of our diamond rings.

    3. Paria Falls

    If you and your partner are up for a long and challenging hike, we recommend going to Paria Falls. This hike will take you about seven hours there and back, so it’s not to be taken lightly. However, the experience of the hike and the views of the end destination make it all worth it. During the hike to the falls, you’ll see some interesting trees and plants, as well as tropical birds like macaws and parrots. At the end of your long journey, the view of the crystal-clear cascading water will take your breath away. That’s when you should pop the question! She’ll be so exhausted and excited that she won’t expect a proposal.

    4. Caroni Swamp

    Boat tours are available everyday from dawn until dusk so you can experience the wonder of the Caroni Swamp. We recommend you schedule your tour at dusk because that’s when the Scarlet Ibis, Trinidad’s national bird, comes in to roost. You’ll be amazed by the number of Scarlet Ibis that will fly in and the roost like flowers on the trees. They’ll fly in during sunset, which makes for one truly romantic moment. Don’t let it go to waste. Propose right then and there.

    Don’t forget: we ship worldwide, including to Trinidad and Tobago. Make sure you’ve looked through our selection of diamond rings for the perfect one before you propose!
