JEWELRY INSURANCE 101 with this Ring • It might not rank at the top of your wedding to-do list, but insuring the ring is an important step many couples forget. Intimidated about where to begin? Don’t be! It’s not as complicated as it sounds—just follow our advice to find a policy that works for you.
RITUAL REMIX • Put simply, a unity ritual is meant to visually represent two people linking their lives together. Although many couples choose to light a candle, given that firelight symbolizes hope, divinity and even the idea of igniting an “eternal flame,” you can mark the moment however you’d like. Whether you script something original or call on a custom from your family tree is up to you—just be sure it’s personal.
TOWERING TREAT • Turn heads with a gravity-defying cake worthy of center stage. Bakers are using structures to give the illusion that the tiers of a cake are floating. We tasked sugar genius Madison Lee with showing us how it’s done, leading her to create this sprawling, six-foot masterpiece. Talk about reaching new heights.
THE ONE WITH THE APOTHECARY TABLE • If you’re more of a “Rachel” than a “Phoebe” and also love Pottery Barn, you’re in luck. The brand is launching a Friends collection in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary. Among the goodies perfect for your registry? Pillows, mugs and, of course, the apothecary table Rachel tried to convince Phoebe was an antique (spoiler alert: it was Pottery Barn, duh). PotteryBarn.com
