There is so much to love about the beautiful island of Cyprus. If I were to get married there I would embrace the culture and traditions by having a lovely local Cypriot themed wedding!

Each venue would be decorated with loads of fresh blooms and I would have wooden chairs and tables to complement the venues and rustic design style.

If you are thinking about getting married in Las Vegas then this Destination Wedding Guide is a great place to start!
And who could be better than the Las Vegas destination wedding expert Kelly, editor of the hugely popular blog Little Vegas Wedding, to bring you all of the inspiration and information you need to start planning your big day in vibrant Vegas?
Are you ready to turn heads in the casino? Las Vegas is not just for quickie weddings anymore, they can be luxurious, heavily personalised and affordable.
Nevada marriages are legal and recognised all over the world. Vegas weddings are infamous for being quick and easy in terms of paperwork and there is no waiting period or blood tests required, so weddings on short notice are possible. Your officiant or wedding planner will typically be able to help you and talk you through the legal paperwork process.
Some countries do require an Apostille and proof of that the marriage ceremony was performed, which consists of a certified copy of the marriage certificate. Some countries may also require a certified copy of the marriage license as well. Be sure to check with the appropriate agency in your country before leaving for Vegas. It is worth noting that British citizens must provide formal notification of an overseas marriage with the General Register Office before the Nevada wedding and then by depositing a certified copy of their marriage certificate (and possibly an Apostille from the Nevada Secretary of State) when they get home.
At this time Nevada does not offer same sex marriages. Your chosen minister or religious official must also be certified to perform marriage ceremonies in Nevada, search for approved officiants here.

Questions that are becoming increasingly important to many brides and grooms when buying their engagement and wedding rings are: ‘Where did the componants come from? Was my diamond mined under humane circumstance? Is my gold ethical? What is the carbon footprint of my jewellery?’
For the ethical couple, it can be a complex buying process. Luckily, there are things in place to help maintain a moral approach to making and buying jewellery.
It has become really important to many soon-to-be married couples to add unique elements to their wedding day in order to truly let their personality shine through at their special event.
Creating bespoke engagement and wedding rings is one way to give you a one of a kind design that is distinctive and personal to you as a couple and something you of course will treasure forever after the big day.
The engagement and wedding ring experts from Wedding Rings Direct are on hand to give you some advice on creating bespoke rings and to share some exciting examples of designs that brides and grooms-to-be have conjured up themselves….
Adopting an individual style to your wedding day has become extremely popular over the last couple of years, which has come hand in hand with a trend towards bespoke engagement and wedding rings. Bespoke rings are a brilliant way of setting your wedding apart from any other one that has taken place. You might have a similar dress, venue and car to someone else, but nobody will ever have the same wedding ring as you if you opt for bespoke wedding rings. This is why so many couples are choosing unique rings, instead of opting for traditional rings.
You would probably expect to pay celebrity wedding prices for such creative, modern and individual pieces of jewellery, but a lot of jewellers offer a free design; using your ideas to create something especially for you.
Bespoke rings can start from a sketch, picture or just an idea in your head which can then lead onto a design and the rings being handcrafted in the jeweller’s workshop. Bespoke can also be modifications on existing designs or amalgamating parts of different ring designs*. Some brides also require a shaped wedding ring to fit around their engagement ring for them both to sit perfectly next to each other; depending on the shape this can also be treated as a bespoke design.
You need to bear in mind that creating a bespoke design from start to finish may take a little longer than the non-bespoke route and you should always get a quote from the jeweller prior to them starting work on making the rings.
Below are some examples of bespoke rings:
- This lovely customer wanted to frame their pretty vintage style engagement ring. As the cluster setting was quite large we needed to take some of the material away from the edge of the wedding band to make for a snug fit. The customer was keen to keep the vintage feel going so small diamonds were grain set along the edge to echo those along the engagement ring. This gave a really nice contrast and framed the ring perfectly.
