These days many brides are saying goodbye to the traditional solitaire and opting for bands instead.  Why? It’s cheaper, more practical in everyday life and totally chic!  Here are a few of Marvelous Girl’s wedding bands picks this season:

Planning the perfect proposal is one of the most stressful tasks for a man looking to pop the question.  Fortunately, newlywed Ivanka Trump has just launched her New York Proposal Package to simplify the process.

“We understand how challenging it can be for men to not only shop for a ring, but plan the perfect way to pop the question,” said Ivanka, who in turn pledged, “We will plan everything: all he has to do is ask!”

By purchasing any of the diamond engagement ring at Trump’s Bridal Bar in her Madison Avenue boutique, clients are entitled to:

  • A complimentary one-night stay at the Trump International Hotel & Tower, or the new Trump SoHo (opening February 1st), both in Manhattan
  • Champagne and one dozen long-stemmed roses waiting in the couple’s suite
  •  A romantic 3-course dinner (and more champagne!) at either hotel’s restaurant
  • Breakfast in bed the following morning

Prices at the Ivanka Trump Bridal Bar start at $800.  And if you haven’t checked out her jewelry collection, you’re really missing out.  The pieces are elegant and breathtaking, just as every bride should be!  See the Ivanka Trump collection at ivankatrumpcollection.com.

Las Vegas is an adult playground, the perfect place for bachelorette’s to let loose with their girlfriends and enjoy the last days of single-dom. Whether it’s a wild pool party followed by an even wilder night on the town or a relaxing day at the spa and dinner at a swanky restaurant, Sin City has something to satisfy every Bachelorette.  

With so many different hotel options both on and off the strip, Oyster Hotel Reviews sent its reporters undercover to determine which hotels struck the perfect balance of relaxation and debauchery for brides-to-be. 
 
“Men and women have differing tastes when it comes to partying in Vegas. Women may be inclined to choose a hotel with relaxing day spa to spend time with her girl friends over choosing a hotel with access to great golf courses, for example,” says Will Begeny, Senior Editor for Oyster Hotel Reviews. “Palazzo, Bellagio and the Wynn topped our list for best bachelorette parties for their spa services, hot nightlife and softer styled décor.”

  1. Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino – Average Price: $299/night
    Styled a little softer and more feminine than the bachelor-swank of rival Wynn, the enormous rooms at the Palazzo could host a small party. But it’s what’s outside the rooms that makes this our top pick: The Tao and Lavo nightclubs are among the hippest party scenes on the Strip). The hotel’s world-famous Canyon Ranch Spa is arguably the best spa in town. The hotel houses some of the Strip’s best restaurants, including the Japanese-Peruvian-Brazilian cuisine of SushiSamba. And the shops at the Palazzo include top names like Tory Burch and Diane von Furstenberg, plus an 85,000-square-foot Barney’s New York.
  2. Bellagio – Average Price: $239/night
    Designed to look like an enormous Italian villa, Bellagio offers serenity (it even has its own botanical gardens) as well as a prime central location for hitting parties on or off the Strip (virtually all the notable clubs are just a short cab ride away). Pamper the whole party at the spa’s whirlpools, eucalyptus steam room, and sauna. The group can also enjoy spa manicures and pedicures together while sipping champagne in a private room. Pick from one of the hotel’s 20-plus restaurants for dinner. Later, burn off the booze and food with a Pilates, cardio, or body-sculpting class at the excellent fitness center.
  3. Wynn Las Vegas – Average Price: $289/night
    Luxury pick Wynn is home to Tryst, one of Vegas’ swankiest nightclubs. Getting beyond the bouncer can be tough, but a group of women should fare well (short skirts might help). The hotel’s more intimate nightclub, Blush, has outdoor seating. Beyond the clubs, the gorgeous spa, and the classy “European pool” (where you can sunbathe topless), the biggest perk at the Wynn is its enormous rooms – perfect for having your whole group over for cocktails before heading out on the town.
  4. Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino – Average Price: $218/night
    Balancing low-key partying with ample pampering, Caesars Palace is a great choice for bachelorettes. (Don’t let that bachelor party gone awry in The Hangover dissuade you.) Qua Baths & Spa, one of the best spas in Vegas, offers, among other delights, its own Roman baths, Laconium steam baths, and Vichy showers; a day pass costs $45. The two-story Pure nightclub has four distinct spaces, each with its own DJ, so you can scope out the right crowd for your mood. And the adults-only Venus Pool is a bit more laid-back than some of the other, more notorious pool parties in Vegas.
  5. Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Average Price: $216/night
    Hard Rock is for ladies who are, well, ready to rock. By day, the Beach Club Pool is about the craziest scene on the Strip — especially on Sunday, when it hosts the Rehab pool party. At night, the clubs Body English and Wasted Space — both known to attract celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Kevin Federline — are Vegas favorites. After-hours, you can scarf down some American fare at the 24-hour restaurant.

For girls on a budget, this place sound great too:

The Palms Casino Resort – Average Price: $82/night
If what the bride-to-be needs is to feel sexy, head to the Palms’ coed hammam (Turkish bath) at the chic Drift Spa. When night falls, hit the hotel’s popular Rain nightclub or Moon, another club with live DJs, multiple bars, and a retractable roof. For an especially girly getaway, consider the 2,350-square-foot Barbie Suite, decorated with framed Barbie prints, a fireplace, super-pink Barbie patterns on the pillows and walls, and 65 Barbie dolls mounted on a mirror.
