“Steal the Ring” Bridal Shower Game

Spotted: a fun and totally easy bridal shower game called Steal the Ring! How it works is pretty self-explanatory, so guests will definitely love to play. On a table, place a bowl full of rings (something like this, or these) for guests to take. Include a sign that reads, “Take a ring – do not say ‘wedding’ or ‘bride’. Steal rings from those that do!” You can mix up this game to include the bride’s name, the wedding date, the groom’s name, or something similar. It’s a lot of fun! The guest with the most rings at the end of the shower gets a prize. It’s funny how often you realize you’re about to say the bride’s name, or groom’s name, or the word wedding while at the shower. It’s actually a tough game to play!

8 Sapphire Engagement Rings Just as Beautiful as Diamonds

While you may already have an engagement ring, perhaps you have a friend who is looking at rings or you know someone who is thinking about popping the question — so this one’s for them! Feel free to subscribe and pass it on!

We know that diamonds are known as a girl’s best friend, but sapphire engagement rings (along with other diamond alternatives) are emerging as a new trend. In fact, I know a handful of newly engaged ladies who are sporting non-diamond rings including sapphires, emeralds, and pearls. This proves that rings are never one-style-fits-all: the ring you select should reflect the ring recipient’s unique style! Today we’re inspiring you with our favorite sapphire engagement rings in sparkling shades of blue. These rings can also double as your “Something Blue”, so, hey, another thing to cross off that never-ending list. :)

Which of these (all handmade, of course) engagement rings is your favorite?

P.S. This first ring is our handpicked #HANDMADEADAY find! It is handmade by Kristin Coffin.
