When your now-fiancé got down on one knee and proposed, you were presented with a beautiful, sparkly engagement ring. Now, however, after months of wear and tear, the shine has diminished slightly. That’s entirely normal—even the hand soap you use can leave residue on a diamond ring, which is why it’s important to clean this special piece of jewelry regularly. If you’ve neglected to do so, all is not lost. A jeweler can get your engagement ring looking bright and shiny again in no time. So, when should you have your engagement ring cleaned? Here, we outline the wedding events that you’ll definitely want your diamond in tip-top shape for.
Besides celebrating the love between you and your partner and the excitement around your upcoming nuptials, the most important thing about the engagement photos is capturing the ring. Whether you intend to use the snapshots on your save-the-date, wedding website, in your wedding’s guest book, or as a commemorative reminder of this special time, there’s no doubt about the fact that your photographer will be zooming in on your gorgeous ring. That’s why you’ll want to have it cleaned ahead of the photo session.
Your Bridal Shower
Your bridal shower is all about you, so expect to have guests craning to get a good look at your engagement ring—especially those you haven’t seen since the announcement. Make sure your sparkler really stands out during this special celebration by having it cleaned professionally before the party.
This should be obvious, right? In addition to the fact that your photographer will likely want to snap some solo pictures of your ring with your new band and your partner’s ring, guests will also ask to see your new set throughout the reception. Make sure that all of the jewelry—yes, this includes your band!—is glistening so you don’t look back at photos later and wish you would have taken the time to visit the jeweler for a good cleaning.

WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK SESSION?
The first look is a newer tradition that involved a one-on-one photo session between the bride and groom where they see each other for the very first time prior to the ceremony. Often bridal party and family portraits are taken immediately after this.
1. Calm Those Wedding Nerves During A First Look
First looks take the brilliant moment we all cherish and makes it about the stars of the day. This photo session slows everything down to a cozy moment and gives you the chance to bask in the affection you both have before the frenzy of a wedding day. Most importantly, this quiet moment will allow for you to get out the jitters and nerves so you feel and look relaxed and comfortable for the rest of the photos. Sometimes you get more emotion this way without all eyes on the groom!
2. Get That Alone Time
Ironically, a first look is one of the very few moments where you’ll get to enjoy each other’s company. The rest of your day is filled with family and friends that can’t help but share their love and excitement with you! This is also the perfect moment to get your formal couples session finished before moving onto group photos.
3. Look Your Best | Fresh Faces, Fresh Clothing
The best thing about getting formal photos done at the beginning of the day: you look incredible! Of course, you’ll both look amazing all day, but a first look is done before the ceremony and reception when your hair is in place, you haven’t cried off that bottom mascara, and neither of you has gotten the chance to dirty your attire.
4. Get More Photos
Scheduling time for photos before the ceremony with a first look and after your ceremony, ideally during sunset, allows for more beautiful photo opportunities. In addition, weddings are unpredictable and there are often delays. It would be a shame to reminisce about your wedding day and wish you had more photo time scheduled! It is not ideal to rush pictures after your ceremony for reasons like the sun already setting or a ceremony running longer than expected.
5. Spend More Time With Your Guests
In addition, a first look will save time later when the transition from ceremony to reception takes place. With all of your photos done, you can do something seemingly unheard of: actually, enjoy the cocktail hour with the rest of the guests.
There’ll be plenty of moments to capture during the ceremony and the reception. Plenty of opportunities to catch lingering glances, a well-timed laugh, and a wistful tear. There’s only one first look, make sure it doesn’t slip by.
Not all photobombs can ruin a picture. In fact, they might even make them a little more precious. Leslie Johnston and Jarett Blendermann were in for a furry photobomb surprise on their wedding day.
The couple at Dutch Valley Tree Farm in Washington, New Jersey was ready to say “I do” to their forever together with friends and family when during the middle of their vows, a wild spotted kitten came from out of the woods and strutted toward the couple.
However, all the guests and bridal party held their breaths, because perched right next to the soon-to-be newlyweds was their dog. “I’ve never seen anything like it before,” said the couple’s wedding photographer, Ashley Meyer of The Meyer Photo + Video Group. “I was holding my breath knowing the couple’s dog was sitting right next to them but everything worked out well!”
Luckily, the dog didn’t seem to be fazed by the kitten’s presence and the kitten quickly scurried off back into the woods.
The couple’s New Jersey, rustic-style wedding ceremony took place outdoors, close to the reception located in a nearby barn. The charming old barn was built in 1924 and sits on forty-two acres of Christmas trees. It was originally used for storing hay, but now is available to rent for weddings and parties. Who knows what other cute furry guests will show up?
