    Affiliate Disclaimer NewHey there, dudes! It’s time to talk about rings. We’ve covered the baubles for the ladies, and now it’s time to focus on you. I won’t go into a long diatribe about their significance, the symbolism of eternal love and blah, blah, blah. Instead, I’ve done a bit of shopping and I’m gonna share the loot I’ve found. The list is separated into three categories: narrow, regular and wide. This is important: in the case of rings, size matters. The general rule is the more slender the hands, the narrower the band. However, I think it’s more about comfort. For someone who doesn’t wear jewelry often, a wide band might feel cumbersome and awkward (note that this can be remedied by the type of metal as well).

    All the rings below retail under $300, but remember that doesn’t include any sort of extra custom work you might want. Also, I’ve indicated if it’s available in other metals, though the price may vary.
    Let’s get to shopping.

    You should buy it, price be damned. Not a statement I would normally ever utter, and I am guessing most Broke-Ass Brides would agree. When you're on a tight budget, price always matters -- even for something as small as a necktie. But, after searching for months and months and months (eight of them to be exact) for a tie for Russel to wear on…

    Alright guys, let’s be honest, dressing up kinda sucks. There's all the fussy jackets and ties, not to mention the stiff shoes. Have you ever been to a wedding where the groom and groomsmen looked like kids in their dad’s suits? Yeah, not fun. That’s why it’s important to make sure you dress not only to fit the occasion -- whether it’s formal or otherwise…

    Alright guys, I'm gonna be honest, I never thought I'd be a pocket square kinda guy. They always seemed too fancy and fussy. One day, just for shits and giggles, I thought I'd try one out for a wedding I was going to. Wouldn't you know, I totally dug it. In fact, I favored it over my tie, so I went tieless and open collar.…
