Love Letters // Special Woman

Darling,

Well, I’m thinking about you and I hope you’re doing ok. I miss seeing you. What cheers me up is when I call you and you’re like, “Hey! Oh my gosh I was wondering when you were going to call!” You’re the only person that gets excited when we talk.

Only a special woman deserves the love of a Marine and it take a special woman to make a Marine feel good when times are bad. Thank you for that. The whole picture of peace and relaxation with you is overwhelming. Just the thought of being able to let your guard down for a moment is bittersweet on the tip of my tongue. You’re the best thing that home has ever given to me.

It’s weird how a letter can mean so much. When you think about it, it’s just another form of communication. But really, it’s moved our relationship so far. I think it’s romantic now that this letter will probably be saved with all the others.

I love you,
Your Future Husband, Matthew

I absolutely love falling asleep to your voice on the phone.
P.S. I’m so glad you love me and I’m going to marry you!

Ceremony // Cute Kids

I was searching through a bunch of pictures of kids in weddings to get some ideas and these were just the cutest! Sometimes kids can be a bit unpredictable when it comes to having them be a part of the big day but if you’re thinking you don’t want to incorporate kids in your wedding, maybe this will change your mind.

I mean, just look at this face:

From the Experts // Happy Friday!

TGIF, right?! Well, we hope you’ll get to relax this weekend. Sometimes taking a break from all your wedding planning is a good thing. It can help you relieve some stress and put a new perspective on the things that matter most.

If there’s anything we can do to help you, like answer some questions you don’t feel like Google-ing or help you resolve a tough family issue or send you a word of encouragement  – that’s what we’re here for. We’ve got the hook-ups on everything bridal in the greater Omaha area and a great team ready to dish out any advice you need.

Engaged // Tips for picking your ring

Omaha has a lot of great places to find engagement rings, but here’s a few things to keep in mind when you start looking.

Remember the four C’s: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carats. If you’re not familiar with diamonds, these four topics can be conversations starters with your jeweler to determine what you want. So when your jeweler asks you what you’re looking for, you know what they’re talking about (the four C’s).

The Cut:
Don’t be swayed by trends. The princess cut or the brilliant round cut may be at the top of the popularity charts, but maybe you want something different. Maybe you want an emerald cut or an asscher cut instead. Choosing a ring is a very personal thing and you want it to represent the love you and your significant other share.

The Color:
Personalize your ring. The band doesn’t have to be white or gold and the diamond doesn’t have to be white

The Clarity:
Depending on what kind of diamond you get and what kind of cut you prefer, it will make a difference in the clarity of the stone.

The Carat Weight:
The size of the rock is a huge dictator as to the size of your bill. For an average person, the engagement ring is a little less than one carat — but don’t let that determine how many carats you want. You’ll still want to pick something that fits your budget.

The most important thing to think about when choosing an engagement ring or wedding band is to make it your own. Engrave the band with a name, date, symbol or special message. You may even choose a unique setting. No one gets to wear your ring except for you, so pick something that has you written all over it — remember, and engagement ring symbolizes your true and everlasting love. 

 

Love Letters // Hurry up and be together

Darling,

Everything is shaping up for us and it’s only going to get better. I love the fact that we’re already looking at wedding stuff.

To me, it feels like the world is saying, “hurry up and be together.” I’ll do my best to make sure you know how much I love you. I honestly didn’t think I’d have you at this point in my life. I’ll never let you go, beautiful. I promise. I’ll always be the man you need me to be. I’ll always love you with my whole heart and I’ll always be yours. Promise.

I love you,
Your Future Husband, David
