Wedding Rings

What’s the importance of a wedding ring and why you should wear it?

There is real no record when the wedding ring started but some believe that the oldest recorded exchange of wedding rings comes from ancient Egypt, about 4800 years ago. Sedges, rushes and reeds, growing alongside the well-known papyrus were twisted and braided into rings for fingers an other decorative ornaments worn by the women in those days.

The Romans adopted it soon after giving it to both the man and woman for a sign of strength permanence.

There a lot of different theories of why the left hand and why we wear them. But, in today’s world there are reasons that you should wear them. Before we get into those, a little personal story of how this ring blog came up.

As many know, I am divorced. WHAT?!?? Story stopper….an event and wedding planner that is divorced? I know, right! haha. I never wanted a divorce, especially with children, unfortunately it was the hand I was dealt and I try to make the best out of it for my kids and I. I am still an amazing event and wedding planner. My divorce has nothing to do with my skills, abilities and I hope one day that I find a wonderful man that can love my kids and I. Until then, I plan dreams and memories.

But, there was more to the point of tell you this. I was doing my estate planning and wanted to give my guns to my son and my wedding ring to my daughter. I noticed my ring was gone! I was devastated, I still am. I love my wedding ring! It is absolutely gorgeous and I wanted to give it to my daughter one day. My reason for telling you this is make sure your rings are fully insured so that if something like this happens, you can replace it. I know replacing it is not the same as the original but at least you didn’t lose such an expensive memory.

Back to the reasons that you should wear a ring in today’s world:

1. Wearing your ring in public shows the world that you value your spouse and the covenant of your marriage.

2. Wearing your ring even when alone, because it reminds you that everything you do, whether in public or in private, doesn’t affect only you but your spouse as well.

3. Wearing your rings together when it’s just the two of you, has a visual symbol of your past promises, your present blessings and your shared destiny for the future.

Cherish your time together as you never know when it’s your last.

Now You’re in the LimeLight!

 

Kimmylea, the other day I was reading my journal and I wrote about meeting you for the first time. Laura & I loved you then and it only came to fruition! Keep up the amazing work!

Zach A.

Thank you so much for all that you did. Even through all of the changes I put you through, you were very professional and helpful. Everyone loved the designs and how I pulled them into the other aspects of my wedding. Thanks!

Adrienne & Greg D.

Will and I cannot thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding weekend so perfect and run so smoothly (or at least that I know of!!). From the first time we met (and even at Laurel's wedding), I knew we would be in good hands. You truly know how to make a bride feel comfortable and at ease.

Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We appreciate all of your help and advice more than you will ever know. The day was perfect and we have you to thank for that!

Zach & Jamee J.

Thank you so much for everything. I don't know what I would have done without you. Everything was perfect! You can 100% count on both my sister's weddings!

I get asked a lot who does our family pictures, Christmas cards, and plans all of my personal and work parties so I thought it would be much easier to share their Facebook page. They are AMAZING and they aren't just Omaha area focused. If you ever need event planning, photography, photo books, invitations, etc. they are wonderful and family owned and operated! Gotta love supporting a local small business!:)

Thanks again for all your help with the wedding and making the invites. We got a ton of compliments on them. Ben and I are so blessed to have you in our lives and are grateful for your friendship. Looking forward to celebrating with you at the wedding.

Ben & Kayleen D.
