It's hard to tune out wedding babble this time of year, with that over-sharing cousin hashing out the minute details of her Cape Cod nuptials and your friends struggling to agree upon a budget for bachelorette/bachelor festivities. Those of us who aren't soon-to-be married can tune out; but any of your lovebirds who have upcoming bridal plans better book it to Long's Jewelers this weekend.
The annual wall-to-wall Wedding Band Weekend event is happening Friday through Sunday, March 22 to 24, at the local chain's Burlington location. With an expected attendance of 2000, we can bet that many a New England couple will sport wedding bands from renowned designers like Ritani, Mémoire, and Furrer-Jacot. Better yet, giveaways offer plenty of opportunities to get comfortable as newlyweds, including vacation packages, furniture shopping sprees, and credit toward wedding bands, rehearsal dinners, tuxedos, and cake.
