When to purchase the rings Before you and your fiancee set out to buy your wedding rings there are some timely lips that will save you lots of leg work, and help you to make a wise choice. It is important to go to a jeweler you can trust, who will show you a selection of name brand wedding rings in white and yellow gold. Fine quality and expert craftsmanship will last a lifetime, the precious gleam mellowing with time and loving wear. There is.no significant difference in your choice of color of gold...it is a matter of taste. Both offer strength, hardness and resistance to wear, both are equally precious. Wedding rings should be ordered four to six weeks before the happy event, insuring plenty of time for accurate sizing. A narrow band will be about half a size smaller than a wide one, since it will slip over the knuckle with more ease. The design should appear in a continuous flow, snowing no break; finishes must be clean and smooth to your touch. Th» Out, /'// be a great cook! A Coronado Microwave Oven makes defrosting, cooking or warming food fast and easy. Penny Duncan, an August bride-elect, found the deluxe model was equipped with an automatic timer and temperature control for mistake-free cooking. This model and many others can be found at Gamble's in Kalispell. Use hand-me-downs for creative first furniture Just right for that special night In the KM Men's store, Doug Tweto found this elegant "Black Shape" tuxedo by Palm Beach Formals. This tux and a wide assortment of others, are available for rent or purchase at the KM. Since Doug and his fiance, Jackie Simonsen, are planning an evening outdoor wedding, they found they could select the most appropriate and attractive attire for that special day at the KM. Chances are newlyweds will not be purchasing all ot their furniture before they settle in their first apartment. In fact, they'll probably be filling with pieces borrowed from parents and relatives. If this situation applies to you. here are some handy do-it-yourself decorating hints. = · · IMAGINATIVE REWARDS With time and imagination, decorating with such "conversation pieces" can be fun and rewarding. To begin, use common sense and tips from experts and be sure to take advantage of the excellent products currently on the market to help save time and work. Your hand-me-down livingroom rug can be clean and bright again by using a rug cleaner that lets you shampoo your carpet while you vacuum. Large bureaus or dressers can take on new life by simply refinishing or repainting them. First, sand down and clean the surface. Then apply paint, antiquing base or stain, followed by appropriate sealer. Using a kit makes the job a cinch, and the results will amaze you. . : ' : ··· ' WALL-TO-WALL DECOR Often, decorators will blend such a piece with the walls so it seems to disappear. This can be accomplished by painting walls with geometric lines or patterns, extending this pattern onto the dresser. Or paper the dresser with the same wallpaper you are using on the walls, then cover with varnish or a plastic sealer. That rug you borrowed for your livingroom can be easily spruced up by using a convenient rug-cleaning product that Jets you shampoo your carpet while you vacuum. Just spray the foam on the rug, wait until it dries and then vacuum away the dried foam and dirt. SEW IT UP! Slipcovering can be accomplished by the home sewer without much difficulty. There are a number of excellent publications on the market that give step-by-step instructions. However, if you are not that handy, colorful pillows strewn on old furniture can do wonders. Borrowed mirrors can be modernized by refinishing or by covering borders with fabric glued over a bit of padding and stretched over to the back. COVER-UPS And dinette sets can either be repainted or, if you prefer, covered by a pretty linen cloth that reaches the floor. (Then cover your chair cushions to match!) Decorating with hand-me-downs is a challenge and really a convenience, too. It gives you time to determine your long-range wapts and needs, and allows you to budget for Oiose items you'll want to keep for years to come. Brides-to-be must take time for the crowning hairstyle Particularly when you want to look your best, disaster strikes -- or so it always seems. Out of the clear blue, the blemish you never had suddenly appears on your chin; your scalp becomes dry and flaky; your hair loses its sparkle. Your wedding day is fast approaching and you're falling apart! Now is not the time to despair. As quickly as a case of jitters can cause blemishes, dry scalp and lackluster hair, they can subside -- provided you know the cure. Take the time out to relax. Jn between the hubbub of wedding plans, some pampering time is in order. If you've been neglecting your favorite {orm of exercise, get back to it. The exercises will relax tense muscles and free your mind of the worries of wedding preparations for a few minutes each day. Try following up your exercise sessions with a warm bubble bath or a quick snooze -- heaven for a furrowed brow! And what time better than the present to indulge in those little luxuries you don't do often enough -- like a really good facial, a manicure, an expert haircut. When you know you're looking good, you've got tfcat heady edge of self-confidence that comes in handy -especially when all eyes are upon you as you walk down the aisle. Next to the bridal dress, the biggest concern bride has, appearance-wise, is her hair. A simple, yet attractive, style that will look well under a veil and after you remove it is a must. Now is not the time to try an avant garde cot -- you do want the bridegroom to recognize you. What's in your head can affect year appearance as much as what's on it. So go ahead, add a new hairstyle, a romantic bridal veil and relax -- because of all the times in life, this is one to savor. A new hairstyle can add a special touch to wedding day magic.
