My wedding weekend tips!

1) Have a welcome party if you can, that way you can spend more time with everyone
2) Budget enough time to get ready on your wedding day, so you aren't rushed
3) Have a trusted friend or family member oversee set-up day of, put vendor cash tips in marked envelopes and have a friend help distribute them at the end of the night so you don't have to worry about it
4) Bring comfy shoes that are the same height as your fancy shoes for dancing
5) Take a few moments to step back, enjoy the moment, and let it sink in
6) Don't sweat the small stuff, enjoy every minute of your wedding!

Thank you so much! We have a coordinater who is making sure we have plenty of buffer in the timeline and will handle everything the day of, she's amazing.

We are doing a welcome party the night before, but everyone who sees it on the website is shocked and asks incredulously if we are inviting everyone?? Yes we want to see everyone! Yes we know it will cost more money! Let us have the wedding we want and stop judging!

Honestly planning a wedding has been tough with all the opinions flying at you but it's quickly turned me from someone who was extremely sensitive to people's opinions, to realizing IDGAF what you think, I'm going to do what I wanna do thanks! Lol

@DoeEyes Lightbox came out with the one carat non pierced necklace. I don’t think you want to go that route now that you purchased the .88...but just to let you know..It’s already sold out...of course..

I am a lurker here mostly. I managed to snag a 1 carat white necklace before it sold out. I ordered the pink 1 carat a few weeks ago but returned it because it was too dark of a pink for me. I will let you know what I think when I receive the white 1 carat pendant. I have always wanted a 1 carat diamond. I have a couple of 1 carat moissanite stones but they get that yucky oil slick stain on them.

DoeEyes .88 carat is beautiful. I love how white it is - it glows. I hope my necklace looks as good as her diamond does.

I saw! Definitely a little annoyed that if I had waited longer I could have had the full carat, but only because then I could say "it's a carat" instead of "it's just under a carat." Truly though, no one ever asks how big it is so it's NBD.

I wouldn't consider getting it now, I can't return the .88, I'm already in the hole for the first $800 ring that's sitting in a box now, and the difference between .88 and 1 carat wouldn't be worth another $1000 for me. Maybe if they keep this up, I'll be upgrading to a Lightbox 2.5 carat for my 5 year anniversary. For now I am still loving my .88 and very happy with it.

Thank you! I'm thrilled with it and I'm sure you will be too. They are very good quality diamonds and obviously, the price can't be beat. Took this video last night. Not even freshly cleaned, and sparkle city.

@DoeEyes Wow! It’s so sparkly! I agree there’s not much difference between the .88 and 1 carat to justify spending more. I‘m so happy you love it! I hope you will post photos after your wedding in May!

I received my 1 carat today but decided to send it back. The sparkle was great but the color was too dark for me. I want something whiter. Oh, well, back to the drawing board. I could also see the Lightbox logo quite easily on the table.

@banjodeb Thats a shame you didn’t like it..but it’s great that you can return it. There was a card in the box that showed the color range of GHIJ...Mine is really white...That’s so strange you can see the logo too...I used my Bausch and Lomb 14x loupe and didn’t see it at all...

I got both in today, and now I'm having a hard time choosing. LOL. But I also can't see then engraved logo without my loupe. I did find it on both stones with a loupe.

Yay! Please take some photos! Do you like it? What magnification do you have on your loupe @Miss_LK?
I just went back to give a harder look..and I still can’t see it under the table...:think:
