Love Knot Diamond Ring

Donald asks…

Help with my party?!?

Our set theme for my 11th B-day party is Candy . FOR SURE . so I am not changing the theme , We need ideas for decarations that go along with my theme . The other part of the theme is colorfull . Like bright oranges and lime / neon greens !

Any tips and ideas?
im turing older . No bingo or pin the tail on the donkey .

LoveKnots answers:

I love your theme and color combination, I think bright colors with a candy theme are great!

First, you can get some clear vases and fill them with jellybeans or skittles and then get those big lollipops and put them in there, this way they are acting as the flowers. You can put some orange and green flowers in with them, but make sure to have the big lollipops with them!

Get those candy rings, the ones that look like diamonds, make them napkin rings! Put them around the napkins and they become napkin rings. You can also use licorce and tie them in a knot and use that as a napkin ring.

For tablecloths, use your colors and alternate. Have one green, then the next one green, and keep going alternating. Then do the same with the napkins, have them in both colors. For balloons, cluster them in orange and green, same with streamers. If you want to add white to break it up, you can do that too, but make sure to have the orange and green your main colors as your balloons and streamers.

Get some bubble gum machines and scatter them around the party area. If you can find gum balls online in just your colors, get them and have the machines set up around the party. They also sell ones that hang on the wall. Just make sure to have little containers with pennies around for your guests to get the candy out of the machines!

Get those white paper lanterns, not the ones that light up, just the ones that are round balls and hang them around the party area from the ceiling, they’ll look really cool and add a nice touch. No, they’re not candy, but it will add a cool touch.

Set up an ice cream bar, no it’s not candy, but it’s sweet and being you have candy, you have plenty of toppings for options! Get chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream and being your colors are green and orange, get some orange sherbert and mint chocolate chip, etc. And some toppings. Sprinkles, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and cherries and of course, all your candy and have everyone make their own sundaes! You can get waffle cone bowls at the grocery store.

For your cake have it done in the colors of orange and green and you can even accent it in white, and then have some candy on it to add more accents to tie it all together.

Being you’re doing a candy theme, don’t forget to serve Iced tea and pink lemonade! If you can’t find lemonade in pink, just add grenadine to regular lemonade and it will make it pink. You can find that in the soda aisle of the grocery store.

I hope some of these ideas help and that you have a great party and a very Happy Birthday!

Donna asks…

Do I plan my wedding now or with his help when he’s ready?

How can I get him to help me plan our wedding?
I moved in with Jeremy 3 years ago. 1.5 years ago, his 2 kids moved in with us out of an abusive home. The kids are 7 and 9 and call me “mom”. They see their birth mom regularly now. We went through some financial and emotional trials with the addition to the new family. Lots of arguments and sad times. All is set right now, and there is open honest trusting communication in this house. The kids are being diagnosed AD/HD, and I am the one taking them to all their appointments, helping with homework, cooking dinners, teaching values and basicly being their parent. Their father, Jeremy still hasn’t committed to me with marriage. I consider myself his wife, but we have not tied the knot yet. What should I do, plan it myself, or wait for him to give the “go-ahead” (which would be in the form of a real diamond on my hand rather than a pretend one)?

LoveKnots answers:

California is a community property state and I believe a cohabitation state. If you have been living with “Jeremy” for three years and his children have been calling you mom for a year and a half by the laws in that state you are already married. You are just talking about a piece of paper and a ceremony. If they mean something to you then you should by all means have them, but; he should have proposed to you by now and not taken advantage of your relationship to involve you in his children’s lives until he has committed to your relationship. That is just wrong. Take Jeremy aside and propose to him and get this over with. I know it should be the other way around but at this point in your relationship who asks who is purely a formality. As for the ring, that is something you should do together. The two of you should pick out rings and set a date, get a license, and figure out if this is going to be an extravagant affair or something simple. I recomend the simple wedding. It saves you money, headaches and in the long run allows you to focus building a life together, a house and a home.

I have to admitt from everything you have asked and answered in the past that I believed he already proposed. He is crazy not to have.

Getting back to the children, I still think they might have been misdiagnosed. I didn’t get into it before but I think the problem may have more to do with their hunger for attention than their lack of being able to concentrate. Like you said, their mother is not a strong role model. They come from an abusive relationship. They are more than likely scarred and insecure and craving your attention and more inportantly “Jeremy’s” attention. You should not be carrying the load here. That may be part of the problem. Inspite of all your good intentions they may be waiting for him to commit to them as well. I hope you don’t take this the wrong way but, “Jeremy” is part of all your problems, and you need to see that before you do anything else.

I know you care for him, but he has done things that make you wonder does he care for you, staying out all night, leaving you with his children, not proposing. Three years is more than enough time to tell you he loves you and wants to marry you. It is time you thought enough is enough and put it to him, “What now?”

I hope you are right and that evrything works out in your favor. I would hate to think that all your effort was for nothing more than good character. You had that to begin with.

Think about it. Ask him if it is important to you. If not then ask yourself “What now?”

Good Luck.

Ruth asks…

need buy engagement ring only have $350?

im wanting to buy an engagement ring for my girlfriend ive been with for 4 years but the only problem is i only have $350. I dont want to buy a walmart ring tho b.c. they’re kinda crappy. What should i do?
the reason i only have $350 to spend is because i live on my own in an apartment and im going to college. the bills add up and after saving back for a while ive managed to come up with enough money to buy a relatively cheap ring. ive found some for under $350 but not a whole lot. if your going to make comments about not being ready for marriage because i dont have the money. dont comment at all.

LoveKnots answers:

I agree that walmart ones are not the best. Can you finance one? If not, there are not many options in that price range. Maybe get her a solid band for now (kind of like a wedding ring) and get her a diamond ring later.

I totally disagree with the people saying you are not ready if that is all the money you have. My husband and I were dirt broke when we got married, we both lived with our parents before we tied the knot, he was just joining the Navy and we were fine! We learned a lot of things together and are so much stronger now. Love is not about money. If you can keep your heads above water then it does not matter. $350 is probably the only EXTRA money he has. Most people live paycheck to paycheck so people need to stop hating.

Richard asks…

Why do peiople expect me to have a ring?

My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years. I am only 22 and neither of us really has any desire to tie the knot. But in the last 4-5 months (the ones coming up on the five year anniversary) I have been getting a lot of odd comments, some even insulting. “Where is the ring?!” “What’s wrong with him/you?” “So, I guess you think it’s ok to live in sin?” “God wants you to get married. Don’t you love god?” Someone really asked that. Most of the offending parties are girls my age. But his friends are asking too. Even family.

The worst happened after the anniversary. He got me a matching set of black and white diamond earrings, necklace and ring. Now the questions are being thrown faster. I try to explain that the ring is just a ring but everyone is conviced I eloped. What is everyones deal? Can’t they respect that I don’t want to be married yet?

LoveKnots answers:

That’s funny. I’m your age and engaged and no one will get off my back about how we are too young.

For some reason, people seem to be under the impression that they have a license to say whatever they want regarding marriage. A complete stranger has even said something to me about it. “Why do you want to throw your life away?” “You know you’ll be divorced within a year, right?” “You know you could just put it up for adoption…” (No, I am not pregnant.) People are just CRAZY rude! I for one think marriage is sacred, and nobody should be discouraging young brides to be OR pushing people who aren’t ready. It’s just nobody’s business but YOURS!

Sandra asks…

Engagement ring help! Need opinions and pictures!?

I have posted about this already but I want more answers so here i go again lol! =]

Me and my boyfriend of 4 years have finally decided to tie the knot! Ive been looking all over for the perfect ring for a while now and I refuse to announce any engagement or talk about it anymore until we have a ring so I really want to make a decision!!! I don’t want a diamond and i had picked out a few emerald and sapphire rings 5 times the price of these that I still felt like I had seem before. But when I came across these rings they are like nothing I have ever seen and I can’t keep my eyes off of them!!

The issue is…The first one I am scared will look like costume jewelry. The second one I am scared is too small for my size 8 finger.

If anyone out there has an engagement ring similar in size to these I would love pictures! Any and all opinions welcome! Be honest!

LoveKnots answers:

Honest opinions:

The first ring looks huge and I think it will look more cocktail ring than engagement ring. It’s not really pretty, not like the second ring! The second one is gorgeous! If it doesn’t fit, could you add in the expense of getting it resized?

Might I suggest, if you haven’t already, to google ‘Pacific Fire Topaz Ring’ or ‘Pacific Fire Topaz Engagement Ring’….if you really like this stone, you should be able to find a ring that’s perfect for you using this search.

I’ve been going crazy looking for rings too! I think I’ll be going with a pink tourmaline or watermelon tourmaline…not too sure yet. I had been looking at huge rings and then one day I was in a store just trying on rings for fun (that were far beyond my budget!) and realized the larger rings look so gaudy, I’ll definitely be limiting myself to smaller gems now. It’s more practical and I think they look nicer.

Amazon and Overstock.com have lots of great rings in an affordable price range if you want to check them out. I also recommend qvc, hsn and jewelrychic.com

Good luck :)

Carol asks…

Websites with Engagement Rings?

Hi! I posted a question on here earlier in regards to going with my boyfriend to look at engagement rings. I’m a bit worried that he’ll feel pressured to buy something that we can’t afford right now… but he’s pretty adamant about me going with him to look. Due to the fact that I’m afraid he’ll spend too much, I decided that rather then going with him I could just find some pictures of rings online that I like and email those to him. I already know my ring size… so getting sized isn’t a problem.

His main thing is that he wants me to show him what kind of rings that I like so he’ll be sure that I like what he gets. I’ve told him that I’m sure I’ll love whatever he picks out because it’s not the ring that’s important, it’s the meaning behind it… but he’s stubborn. lol.

So, some of y’all suggested the picture thing and hey… what better visualization then something he can print out and bring with him right? =) With that being said, my question is does anyone have websites with engagement rings on them? I’ve looked at The Knot.com, Zales, Gordon’s, Blue Nile, Kay Jewelers, Helzburg Diamonds and Samuel’s Jewelers…are there any others?

Sorry this is so long… but I have one more question, how do I go about telling him that I would feel more comfortable just finding some rings online and sending the pics to him? That way whenever he goes to get the ring, I won’t even have an idea that he’s been to a store. And… that prevents any budget worries because he’ll be able to pick a ring from the pile I’ve chosen and get it in his budget.

We’re not going to get engaged until the summer… but he’s stated that he’ll soon start looking for rings.

Thanks so much!
