It all went down on last night’s finale of the show, and while a happy ending is all well and good, frankly we’re much more focused on the humongous rock that now rests on the bride-to-be’s finger.

Add a pop of sparkle to the top of your cake with this glittery sign!

When it comes to weddings, there are few things that creep me out more than those old-fashioned, plastic bride and groom figurines that your parents most likely had perched on the top tier of their wedding cake (I know my parents did). I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something about those stiff, generic-looking figures that just rubs me the wrong way.

Luckily, you’d be hard-pressed to find one of those vintage statuettes atop any modern day wedding cake. In fact, these days cake toppers are just one of many elements that couples are choosing to get creative with.

This season has seen its fair share of celebrity brides, and we must say that we’ve been pretty impressed by the squeal-worthy ensembles that many of them have chosen to walk down the aisle in. (Remember Olivia Palermo’s gorgeous sweater/shorts/ball skirt combo?)

Well, actress Piper Perabo may have just trumped every bride before her with the amazing outfit that she donned for her weekend nuptials to director-producer Stephen Kay.

PW Reader Ring: Lindsay & Jeff

PW-reader lindsayThe couple: Lindsay Grindrod and Jeff Showmaker, Horsham

The ring: I am completely in love with my ring! While Jeff and I had talked a lot about getting engaged and what I liked (we’ve been dating for over six years, since I was 17), he completely took me by surprise.

The ring is a platinum setting with a princess cut center stone and a platinum border directly around the stone. It sits low in a cushion cut halo of diamonds and the band is curved with diamonds as well.

Jeff chose the ring himself with no help from friends, brothers, or even our moms. I didn’t expect something so intricate and detailed, it’s very art deco—the perfect mix of modern and vintage. He said he was inspired by the British romance novels I love to read.

It’s no surprise that most of the shopping that goes on around the time of your wedding either involves the Dress, accessorizing the Dress (including lingerie), or choosing the dresses that your bridesmaids will rock down the aisle. Obviously we’re totally onboard with shopping of this nature, but we’re also advocates for picking up a few new things for your honeymoon too, which can oftentimes get overlooked in the midst of it all.
