Remember to dress appropriately for the level of formality. If you are
on the shorter, more slender side, it is best to opt for a single-breasted
jacket, to avoid looking as if you're drowning in fabric. If your
midsection is a little on the round side, opt for low buttoning to
lengthen the torso.
Bliss not blisters
Although you are likely to be dressed more formally than usual, you
still want to be comfortable. Break in your wedding shoes prior to the
day. Even just sitting around watching TV with them on will allow the
heat of your feet to soften them. The last thing you want is to spend
the honeymoon tending to blisters.
In terms of your suit fabric, choose one that is comfortable and
suitable for the season and climate.
If you're prone to a bit of extra sweat when under pressure, coat your
underarms in plenty of anti-perspirant and consider taking an extra
shirt to change into if needed.
Nothing looks and feels worse than a jacket with a poor fit.
You need to have a full range of motion, when it is buttoned and
unbuttoned. You should be able to cross your arms comfortably,
without feeling restricted across the back.
You should be able to button your vest comfortably, without any

When it comes to wedding jewellery, the most popular
choice remains the diamond. Hardwearing and brilliantly
sparkling, diamonds are the gem of choice for
engagement rings, and often wedding bands, earrings, necklaces
and bracelets. Here is what you need to know when choosing your
The cut of a diamond isn't so much about its shape as it is about the
way it reflects light. This in turn affects the brilliance of the diamond.
So if you want to be able to blind people while flashing that rock
around, ask your jeweller about the difference between cuts.
Each diamond has certain flaws; blemishes which are on the surface
of stone and inclusions which are within the stone. Each diamond is
graded according to its flaws and as such you can expect a
difference in price between the grades.
Most diamonds are white, so colour generally refers to whether they
are in fact white, or whether there is the presence of other colours.
Thus they are graded as colourless through to light yellow. Diamonds
of other colours entirely, such as pink or green are not graded on this
scale. The more colourless a diamond, the more valuable it is.
A diamond is weighed using carats, a unit of measurement. One
carat is equal to 0.2 grams. The greater the carat, the greater the
price. However it is not necessary to have a giant rock for a ring to
look stunning. The ring setting and design, as well as the shape and
size of your fingers will affect the overall look.
