Our top '5' celebrity engagement rings

Who doesn't just love the bling? With the millions of dollars these celebrities drop on engagement rings, I guess it's safe to say they belong to another planet. Please regular peeps don't beat yourselves up trying to compete with these people.

Here's our top 5 celebrity engagement rings

Beyonce tops this list and her hub Jayz is the illest. He dropped a whooping $5 million on an engagement ring for his girl. The 18 carat flawless diamond engagement ring designed by Lorraine Schwartz has a center with an emerald cut that is set in platinum... (cues in Jayz's rap in the Beyonce) 'Upgrade you' track "Lorraine Schwartz sorta dude.. it's big balling baby when I'm courting you"... "Cos that rock on your finger is like a tumour, you can't fit your hand in your new purse". Jay is definitely a man of his words.

Check out the sparkler

Next on the list- We are lavving Kate Middleton's ring. Prince William gave his princess a ring that originally belonged to his mum, Princess Diana. It is an 18 carat oval sapphire ring. The sapphire stone is surrounded by 14 small diamonds and originally cost $65,000 (wonder what it's worth now). It's definitely her something old, something blue and something borrowed.

Picking a dress for a registry wedding

It is very tricky choosing a dress for a civil ceremony. A lot of people look back at photos of their civil ceremony and go 'what the hell was i thinking?'

I personally feel every step of your wedding should be extremely special and what better time to look your best that at your civil ceremony when you are both bound together by marriage in the eye of the law.

Below are some dresses we think are appropriate for a civil ceremony

love the dress and the jacket, very appropriate for a formal wedding
dress from Monique Lhuillier 2014 bridal collection

Also by Monique Lhuillier

I love this fuchsia pink dress that real bride, Tope, wore at her civil ceremony.

Mai Atafo's 2013 collection is FIYAH!

Last year's 'Dream Wedding by Mai Atafo' was a royal theme headlined by former MBGN Munachi Abii and Uti Nwachukwu. This year featured a modern and contemporary theme and was a star studded affair with the likes of Banky W, Tinsel star Chris Attoh, Lynxxx, Yvonne Nelson, Seyi Shay, Isio Wanogho and Timi Dakolo gracing the runway turned aisle.

There were several soulful renditions from Mr Capable himself, Banky W, Timi Dakolo, Praiz and Waje. The event held at Landmark Events Center on June 13 2013.

Okay..  enough of the yapping , pictures are worth more than a thousand words, right?.

Candelabra or Floral centerpieces?

I just got into an argument with my friends and decided to throw it open to you guys. Which would you rather have at your wedding? A calendabra centerpiece or the good ol' floral centerpiece? Check out some some swoon worthy photos to help you choose right :-)

This beautiful floral centerpiece is from the Amber Ridinger and Duane McLaughlin wedding
Another beautiful centerpiece
Did you notice the 'apples' in the flower vase? Great idea.


Below is a gorgeous Calendabra with a capital "G"



The effect of flickering candle and chandeliers in a well decorated venue is to die for



What about the combination of flickering candle lights and flowers? Totally Adorbs!
