There is perhaps no wedding stress as all-encompassing for a bride as fretting about the weather is for an outdoor bride.

Any couple planning to tie the knot—or celebrate tying the knot—outside, underneath the sun or stars, inevitably starts obsessing over weather patterns basically starting a year out, no matter how solid their Plan B is. They stare at almanacs and pray to God and weathermen that their Big Day will be a clear one. A sunny, temperate, cloudless, gorgeous display of perfect weather.

Well luckily, there is now a company offering such a service that, if you sign up for it, you needn’t give the weather a second thought after booking your outdoor venue—because they will absolutely guarantee it doesn’t rain on your wedding day. And it only costs just a tad over $100,000!

Close-Up: Sofia Vergara’s Engagement Ring Was Large and In Charge at Last Night’s SAG Awards

Ok, so, confession: I somehow missed that Sofia Vergara and Alcide I mean Joe Manganiello did officially get engaged just before New Years. (Probably because my holiday hibernation was deep.) So I certainly sat at attention last night during the SAG Awards red carpet, when she was flashing her giganton ring all over the place!

Behold her bling inside the E! Mani Cam (there are many diamonds before she appears, so skip to 2:24 if you want to skip ahead):

PW Reader Ring: Heather & John!

Heather's ring!

Heather’s ring!

The couple: Heather Cicala and John Powell, from Marlton.

The ring: My setting belonged to my great-grandmothers, and dates back to 1914. The ring had been given to my mom when my great-grandmother passed away, and she took the diamond out and made it into a pendant. One night when we were discussing rings, my mom brought out the setting for me to see, and I knew from that moment it would mean the world to me to have such meaning attached to such an important event in my life.

The setting itself is platinum, but since it’s almost 100 years old, it was very tarnished. So John took it to Sydney Rosen in Philadelphia and worked with David there to choose the right diamond for the setting. They also polished it, and it looks brand new! You would never know how old it actually is.
