Titanium Whiskey Barrel Band alternative wedding ideas from Offbeat Wed (formerly Offbeat Bride)
Titanium ring available here

What's one wedding “rule” we LOVE seeing Offbeat Brides break? Waiting for the groom to propose, of course! We love when brides propose to their partner. We even have a two-part guide on how to do it. Of course we also love stories of ladies proposing to ladies and dudes proposing to dudes. Hell, our publisher Ariel proposed to her partner, too! We just want you guys to do what's right for you if you're down for slapping some bling on your partner's finger.

My partner and I have talked about getting married for a while now. I want to propose to him with the ring that would then become his wedding band. The problem is… I want to make it a surprise, and I don't know his ring size. Does anyone know other sneaky ways to find their partner's ring size?

So, I get home last night after six days. Excited to just hop into bed and wait for Lacey to get home from Mother's Day dinner, I open the door to what I can only describe as “New FluffyTown” — a replica of the second-largest and most extravagant blanket slash pillow fort built in the world built in fictional Greendale Community College in 2012.

… What also interested me was that the role-reversal seemed to come with less celebration than the standard boy-asks-girl scenario. In my opinion, just because I was asking didn't mean I didn't want an awesome memory.

I don't remember how I came up with the idea for the d20 ring. I do remember that it was important to me to find something that suited my girl, something she would want to wear on a regular basis.
