August 21: The Columbus Weddings Boutique Show

Let the planning begin! Whether you got engaged last week or last year, the Columbus Weddings Boutique Show is chock-full of ideas and inspiration for your big day. It takes place Sunday the 21st from noon to 4 p.m. at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center in Lewis Center.

This relaxed, boutique-style setting is designed to let you meet one-on-one with some of Central Ohio's most talented wedding professionals. Enjoy a complimentary mimosa, sample amazing food from local caterers and cake bakers, check out the latest fashions and learn about today's top trends from area florists, photographers, DJs and more.

Each bride (or groom!) attending will receive a free tote bag and be entered to win more than $7,000 in prizes, including the White CarpetTM Bridal Experience from White of Dublin, Henri's Cloud Nine Bridal Styling Experience, "Bliss Bucks" to spend with exhibitors at the show and VIP Meet and Greet tickets to see celebrity wedding planner David Tutera at the full-scale Columbus Weddings Show in January.

Tickets are only $8, and you can purchase them here.

August 5-6: Half Off Half the Store at Worthington Jewelers

Worthington Jewelers is having a "Half Off Half the Store" sale Aug. 5 and 6. Everything on the historic side of the store-that is, the fashion jewelry on the right side of the store as you walk in-is on sale for 50 percent off. The store's stock of engagement rings, wedding bands and diamond fashion pieces are 10 percent off.

The historic side of the store has a great array of jewelry that could complete your bridal ensemble, like 14k colored gemstone pieces, pearls, estate jewelry and the store's silver fashion lines. (Guys, don't feel left out. The store's line of Reactor watches is on that half of the store, too.) The silver lines, which include Elle, Officina Bernardi, LaFonn, Ti Sento Milano and Mediterranean Glass Jewelry, also would make excellent bridesmaids' gifts.

The icing on the cake: Everyone who stops by the store during the sale (today and tomorrow) can enter to win a pair of diamond stud earrings … no purchase necessary.
