Heed the weather and other potential annoyances. Guests have been known to skip out early from hotter-than-hot summer tent weddings and improperly heated winter loft receptions. Bugs (gnats, deer flies and mosquitos) also swarm in certain areas during certain seasons. Consider renting pest control tanks to alleviate the problem or including bug repellent in guests gift bags.
At the beach. There are a couple reasons for this. The most obvious being if you lose that sucker in the sand or water, it’s a goner. The second and lesser known reason is because of the sand that can wedge itself in the ring setting or under the diamond. And you definitely don’t want to apply sunscreen when you’re wearing your ring, it’ll cloud your stone right up.
Soaking in a pool or hot tub. Losing your ring here isn’t as big of an issue compared with the open sea (filters can be checked and the pool can be drained), but it’s the chemicals, like chlorine, that do the damage. After time, they can seriously discolor the metals.
