Dear Weddington Way

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 9.00.05 AMDear Weddington Way,

This may seem like a silly question, but I just got engaged and am wondering in this day and age, who pays for the wedding? Is my father supposed to foot the entire bill? Or should my fiancé and I host the celebration? Also, what costs are my fiancé’s parents supposed to cover? Any insight you can provide on this would be appreciated!

Thank you,

Elizabeth, San Diego

Hello Elizabeth,

Your question isn’t silly, it’s important and a topic that may have newly engaged women scratching their heads as they think, it’s 2015, so who pays for the wedding? It really depends on you, your parents, your fiancé, and your fiancé’s parents. Traditionally the bride’s family assumes most of the wedding costs with the bride’s father being the official host of the reception. This includes the costs of stationery, bridal gown, flowers, photos, video, music, transportation, and all reception expenses. In this age-old arrangement, the groom and his family pay for the following items: the bride’s rings, groom’s gift, groomsmen’s attire, officiant’s fee or donation, marriage license, honeymoon, and the entire rehearsal dinner.

Nontraditionally, the wedding costs are paid for by the couple themselves or some combination of the bride’s and groom’s parents. As many modern couples are somewhat older, they often cover the financial burden themselves. If the bride’s and groom’s parents are both chipping in to throw the event, everyone should get together and have a candid conversation about the allocation of the expenses.

Good luck with figuring out your budget!

How To Take The Perfect Engagement Ring Selfie

Lauren Conrad Engagement Ring Selfie

He liked it so he finally put a ring on it, and now you’re chomping at the bit to show off that bling on social media! Girl, trust us, it’s only natural. Before you start snapping away and clicking that share button though, make sure you’re doing your rock justice. Because filters can only help SO much, we asked a few fab photographers to teach us their secrets for taking the perfect engagement ring selfie. Is your rock ready for a close-up?

1. Get the light right

Natural lighting is everything, particularly when it comes to capturing the sheer gorgeousness of your engagement ring (shine bright like a diamond, y’all!). That’s why destination wedding photographer Nicholas Purcell recommends standing in front of a large, bright window to snap your selfie but ‚Ä®preferably not with the sun beaming right in that same window. “Maximum brightness is what you’re aiming for without direct sun,” he notes. Otherwise, the lighting will be too harsh and less than flattering for both you and your bling.

2. Keep the background simple

Ever notice how fashion bloggers and brands always shoot their accessories against a white backdrop? That’s because a white wall or surface simplifies the background and provides for a much more striking image overall, points out Purcell. The ring pops and becomes the focus of the photo, as opposed to those dirty clothes you forgot to pick up off the floor, oops! Not a fan of white? No worries. Place your hand on any simple but elegant surface, such as dark wood, says Vanessa Stofenmacher, co-founder of fine jewelry brand Vrai & Oro.

3. Experiment with angles

The key to capturing the perfect engagement ring selfie is finding an angle where your diamond really sparkles (you’ll want to polish it first, advises Purcell). “The camera should be above and slightly to the side to show the three-dimensions of the ring. Now, just rotate the shooting angle until you get maximum sparkle.”

4. Snap a pic under a chandelier

Speaking of sparkle, according to photographer Jon Kline, diamonds sparkle best when they’re near a lot of different light sources at once. “Take your picture under a chandelier or other multiple lights grouped together,” he suggests.

5. Don’t zoom in

Want your rock to look extra large in that Instagram pic? Then whatever you do, don’t zoom in! “Zooming in tends to flatten your ring out,” warns Kline. “Just move the camera closer to the ring to get a good shot instead.”

6. Remember to relax

Just like you’d relax your smile in a standard selfie, you’ll want to relax your fingers in a ring one, states Stofenmacher. “Then lay them flat but naturally on the surface.” Now, that’s better!

7. Get a manicure for goodness’ sake

Even the best engagement ring selfie can be ruined by a bad manicure so always keep your fingernails looking fresh. For an au natural look, Stofenmacher suggests painting them a neutral shade, such as nude. “Red gives off a more classic vibe, whereas black is edgier.”
