Wedding Wise Wednesday - July 28, 2010

Every Wednesday, I give you the best wedding events, deals and stories that I've found in Los Angeles and around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!

The Coolest Wedding Thing I've seen this week:

The UP engagement ring box, based on the movie. I don't know about you, but I cried my way all through the opening montage, and some lovely man commissioned this to be made for his now-fiance. Isn't this beautiful? The best part of this gig is the ideas you guys come up with. What a great engagement story! The box was made by The Model Maker in Dublin, and thanks to Dog N'Bird Artful Wedding for the find.
