Gotta Have It

Calling all Bridezillas! If you’ve got wedding rings to buy, this event is for you. And – bonus – you get fizz, snacks, treats and discounts too.

Nothing as heart-warming as a good wedding! And how lovely was the Four Weddings short film for Red Nose Day? As someone who insisted on making my own wedding speech back in the olden days of the ’90s (I know, what a hairy old feminist I am) and whose own dad threw more money than was sensible at his wayward daughter’s wedding, it really resonated.

If you’re hearing the ding-dong of impending wedding bells, you’ll want to know this little nugget. Biagio the Jeweller has his Spring Wedding event next Thurs 28 – Sat 30 March at the Bicester and Thame stores, which can mean only one thing – up to 50 percent off any wedding rings ordered during those dates and the chance to win your something special. Basically you book an appointment, choose your wedding rings, knock back a glass or two of bubbles, and then pluck a blossom from the cherry tree in-store to get a discount of between 20-50 per cent.

Not that I’m in the market for a new model husband, but if Richard Gere (back in BBC1’s MotherFatherSon, the ol’ silver fox) would get a move on and just remove the restraining order so I could get to know him better, I’d be choosing one of these rings.

This year Biagio’s also offering a Bridal Shopping Night on the Thursday between 5-8pm – mini manis, a styling session for you and three bridesmaids, the chance to win a piece of jewellery worth up to £350 AND 20 per cent off ALL jewellery in store. For that just go onto Biagio’s Facebook page and say which item of jewellery you most want and why with the tag #sayidobiagio – you have until this Thursday when the winner will be informed, so chop chop.

And just coz I’m nice, here’s some jewellery inspo for you from the store that stays deliciously within the £350 mark.

OK OK, the rose quartz ring is £5 over budget, I’ll gift that to you!

Biagio The Jeweller. 2 Greyhound Walk, Thame, Oxon, OX9 3DY and Pioneer Square, Bicester, Oxon, OX26 6FA. Tel: 01844 217001 and 01869 252323.
