Make your wedding day memorable by being different!  It is boring to have a wedding full of cliché things–like your typical diamond solitaire ring, a big poofy princess dress, a typical venue, all while celebrating with an over-budget, over-the-top wedding.  Instead, break the mold and plan things that are meaningful and make you happy!  Arik Kastan creates pieces that are just as unique as yourself, so why not use them as an alternative bridal solution.  Whether you opt for a cluster of rose cut diamonds as your engagement ring, or a wedding band set with your birthstone or your new husband’s birthstone–Arik Kastan has some great options.

My solution?  Here are four destinations for you to grab your love and runaway to elope and make some joyous memories.  

Grab your passport and head over to the beautiful scenery of Lake Como, Italy.  Your honeymoon is already built in to your special occasion and the ambiance has never been more romantic!  A lightweight sheer wedding dress paired with stackable Arik Kastan rose cut diamond bands are perfect for this getaway.  The wider rose cut diamond band would be your engagement ring and the thinner, matching rose cut diamond band would be the wedding band.  A dynamic duo.

The mountains and mid-west have been calling your name since you’ve been talking about being engaged!  Why not run off and get married under the sunset, while wearing a lace halter dress with flowing bottom.  The sunlight will compliment your citrine engagement ring from Arik Kastan, which is surrounded by a ring of rose cut diamonds.  The rustic look with the rose gold is picture perfect.

A beach wedding is on everyone’s dream wedding destination lists.  The Gulf of Mexico provides a sandy and warm climate with an ocean as pretty as a painting.  If that deep blue hue of the water is important to you, Arik Kastan’s sapphire rings are reminiscent of this scenery.  A sapphire cluster ring would make a great alternative engagement ring.  Pair it with a two-piece wedding dress and show some skin!

Are the red rocks of the desert mid-west your ultimate backdrop? Then Sedona, Arizona may be just the place to jet to for your epic elopement.  A strappy wedding gown with see-thru cutouts will be your go-to wedding day attire.  Inspired by the red rocks, Arik Kastan bands with rubies make for an ideal wedding ring, with an engagement ring consisting of one knockout rose cut diamond set in an engraved rose gold design.  Ravishing red is a great theme!
