10 Must-haves for a Groom on the Big Day

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Here’s a fun one for your Monday. We put together a list of the 10 must-haves for a groom on his wedding day. Some are absolutely essential, some are no-brainers, and some are just funny.

Did you remember these on your big day?

10. Dress Socks- Leave the white athletic socks at home, guys. Those white cotton socks are not going to look good with your tux. Trust us.

9. Watch- Don’t be late on your wedding day!

8. Directions- Sure you picked out the venue, but with the hundreds of things on your mind on your wedding day, a set of directions just in case might be prudent.

7. Tie- Whether it’s a bow tie or traditional tie, we know you hate wearing them and you’re going to only put it on at the very last minute. Just be sure you have it with you. Running home to get it before the ceremony starts would be no fun.

6. Bride’s gift- It’s traditional for bride and groom to exchange gifts before the wedding. We recommend something she can wear during the wedding like a tungsten heart pendant, but whatever you decide to get for her, don’t forget it. And wrap it nicely, too!

5. Cellphone- You never leave home without it anyways, right? Just be sure it’s off during the ceremony.

4. Vows- Especially if you wrote your own, a few note cards will fit nicely in your pocket and there’s no shame taking them out of you need them.

3. Deodorant- You don’t want to sweat through your tux and after the long night you’ll spend dancing after the ceremony, your bride will thank you.

2. Groomsmen Gifts- Another tradition, get the guys backing you up something nice to wear as a thank you. Watches are a classy gift or even matching cufflinks for them to wear during the ceremony.

1. The Wedding Rings- A million and one things on your mind and you forget the wedding rings? Don’t be that groom. You and your bride are the stars of the day, but your durable tungsten wedding bands are the symbol that seals the deal.

6mm or 8mm: Which Width is Right for You?

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Are 6mm rings for women? Do men’s bands only come in 8mm? Can a lady wear an 8mm tungsten ring? These are all questions we answer frequently for our customers in regards to the width of their wedding ring or casual tungsten band. And the truth is, your ring’s width is just as personal as your ring size.

But if you are still unsure what width will look best on your hand, whether it’s 6mm or 8mm, or even 4mm or 10mm, here is a quick guide:

CLASSIQUE 6MM

MODERNO 8MM

- 8mm wide tungsten rings and cobalt ring are generally preferred by guys due to their longer fingers. But with sizes as low as 6.0, wider rings for ladies are now in vogue.

- For matching wedding sets, couples will usually get 6mm wide for the woman and 8mm wide for the man. (For more on the difference between men’s and women’s rings, see our resource page on the subject HERE.)

- 4mm is almost always a lady’s band, however, men not use to wearing jewelry or looking for a very traditional wedding band width (traditional wedding bands were 4mm to 5mm for men and women) will also wear 4mm wide rings.

- 10mm is the widest width we carry, while it’s only 2mm wider than our 8mm rings, it does look considerably wider once on your finger.

Choosing the Right Tungsten Retailer: Getting a Forever Wedding Band

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

If you’re in the market for wedding bands, you’re well aware there are hundreds of online jewelers and retailers vying for you business. Nothing wrong with a bit of choice. But how do you know you’re getting a wedding band that is going to last the test of time?

If it’s unique and durable wedding bands that you’re looking for, here’s a few tips on finding the right retailer for your forever tungsten wedding band:

- Judge a book by its cover: What does the retailer’s homepage look like? Are their products organized and pictures clear? Is it easy to navigate and can you find their contact information easily? These are all questions you’ll want to have in mind as you shop the online retailer’s equivalent of a first impression.

- Warranties and Policies: While tungsten wedding bands and cobalt rings are the toughest on the market, what if something goes wrong? Make sure the retailer prominently displays their warranty and policies in the off chance you need to have your ring repaired or replaced.

- Too High, Too Low: Price obviously matters, but is the retailer’s price too good to be true? There’s a big different between well-price tungsten wedding bands and “cheap” tungsten wedding bands

Let’s Play the Match Game

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

To Match or not to match? It may be a question you’ve been pondering for some time leading up to you wedding ceremony. Some people will tell you, absolutely yes, the bride and groom’s wedding rings should match in displaying the solidarity of your love. While others are of the philosophy that two individuals should get rings that match their individual style. The truth is… either way, you can’t go wrong!

But for those of you considering matching wedding band sets, Tungsten World does have an extensive collection of women’s and men’s wedding bands in varying widths, giving you the perfect matching pair of rings with the most comfortable widths for a man or lady’s hand.

MATTINO 8mm Brushed Tungsten Wedding Band

MATISSE 6mm Brushed Tungsten Wedding Band

For example, take our MATTINO. It’s one of our most popular tungsten wedding bands for men with its raised top and matte brushed finished. But coming in a 8mm width, many women may think the band is just too wide, but they still want a matching band to pair with their husband’s wedding band. Because of this, the MATISSE 6mm brushed wedding band is completes the perfect pair of wedding bands for men and women:

The MATTINO/MATISSE matching set is just one of many identical sets found on at www.tungstenworld.com though. Coming in 6mm and 8mm widths couples can get matching tungsten diamond wedding bands, as well as tungsten rings with precious metal inlays.

But what if identical matching isn’t quite your thing? Fear not! Tungsten World has wedding bands that are matching and pair well, without being completely identical. For instance, maybe you’d prefer a set of wedding bands with alternating tungsten and black ceramic styling:

IMPERIAL Black Ceramic and Tungsten Wedding Ring

PARAGON Tungsten and Black Ceramic Wedding Ring

With their alternating tungsten and black ceramic styling, the PARAGON and IMPERIAL are the matching wedding band set for the couple that doesn’t want to be too matching. Just one of the many ideas for matching wedding sets at Tungsten World. If you’re interested in even more matching wedding band info, visit our Resource page on matching wedding sets HERE.
