How Perfect Circle Protects Your Precious Moments

Deliriously happy and filled with love. Newly engaged? Just married? Crowded by beautiful memories and delighted with the possibilities of a journey of a life time? Just put a ring on it?

I remember the feeling so well! The back then new object now comfortably circles my "vena amoris"...  I wasn't used to it and the ring felt a little 'foreign' at first. Like that pang of love when she first called me her husband, the wedding ring felt different, in a good way! 

Fun fact 1 - the ancient Roman brought the practice of placing the ring on the left ring finger, because of a "vena amoris" or "nerve of love" supposedly connected from that finger to the heart, seat of love and affection. (source McCalls Magazine June 1963).

The ring is, after all, a symbol of happiness! There are many legends about the use of a ring to symbolize marriage, but one we like especially holds that a ring, having no beginning and no end, stands for eternity.  

Fun fact 2 - did you know that traditionally only the bride wore the wedding ring? There was a wider acceptance for the double ring ceremony during the World War II where the groom also received a wedding ring! 



Confession though? I witnessed a friend's ring slipped of her finger when she was trying to put on her jacket - it fell and it rolled into the ocean ... Our hearts sank. Disappointed and upset were an understatement! So I am in constant fear of losing the rings! Like when walking the dogs or going hiking on the weekend, what if it just comes off my hand? When working in the kitchen, Mrs. Well-Groomed almost always takes hers off and put them on the counter to avoid getting the rings dirty. As amusing as cooking together may be there is something inherently disheartening when the fear of misplacing or worse losing the wedding ring creeps up on you.

The engagement ring and the wedding rings are so much more than just financial investments. Most importantly, to us - they hold a priceless sentimental value because of they represent a significant moment for us.

Well-Groomed Groom: The Sartorial White Tux

As far as tuxedos go, we haven't seen that many grooms choosing white ones lately. But don't discount them yet, the white tux could really illuminate that effortless - cool - groom look and give you a run for your money.

That is the case here at Abisola's wedding ceremony. Her husband was sporting a white Ferrecci tux - tailored so well with the black lapels to match the Calvin Klein bow tie. And the dotty socks mimicked the color palette in a trendy way!

Does the white tux get your thumbs up? It certainly got two from Well-Groomed, especially styled sartorially as such in his look!

Proposal Idea: James Bond Secret Mission Theme

A conference weekend in NYC turned to a thrilling adventure. We gotta give it to Sunil~ This guy worked his inner Bond, charmed, fully armed and well prepared with his secret mission proposal. A proposal idea to steal, here's how the event went down :

As the work conference came to an end, Sunil told Shahira that he got her a luxury spa day including hair and makeup. All pampered, Shahira got back to the hotel room, to find not her boyfriend but a huge box with a bow sitting on the bed.

When she opened the box, she found her first "secret mission" assignment. The mission, if Shahira chose to accept it, was to put on the designer dress in the box and go downstairs where transport would be waiting for her with more instructions.

When the car pulled up to the location, a passerby knocked on her window and handed her the next mission. (loving this spy style shot!)

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to enter the drinking establishment at this location. Proceed immediately to the bar, and order a martini - shaken, not stirred. Await further instructions.

The bar was filled with people dressed to the nines in tuxedos and dresses. Following through with the mission, she ordered the martini. The moment it was set down in front of her, the entire room went silent. A guitar started playing her and Sunil's special song and all of the people in the room turned out to be professional singers.

At the same time, a chainlink curtain at the end of the room opened and there, behind the curtain, was a red carpet leading to the end of the mission: Sunil, all dappered up in a classic black and white tux, complete with a bowtie and a crisp white square pocket.
