Wedding season!
Spring is in the air and you know what that means...Wedding Season! Well Art of Life is getting into the swing of things. Ok, before you all groan and think we're getting all mushy with images of couples happily picking their crystal, we are actually thinking about all the singletons out there and how difficult it is to meet people, even those in high society.

Enter The Dating Headhunter. For a fee between $22,000 and $110,000 you get a team of experts lining up eligible men and women. For this month's show, we follow a potential couple-to-be on their first date.

As Art of Life's Associate Producer Dayna Hochfelder tells us, you'll want to stay tuned for this nailbiter. Will they hit it off?? We didn't forget about those who have hit the marital jackpot. Our personal shopper takes us on a tour to find antique wedding rings.

In May's show we also look at how high-end watch companies market their ware. IWC put on a show for journalists as they unveiled their limited edition watches that include the Pilot's Watch Spitfire, the exact replica of the watches worn by pilots in the 1930s and 1940s. It was a two-day event in the English countryside of Hampshire and included everything from clay pigeon shooting, flying in a Spitfire (which I don't recommend for the weak stomachs out there. Trust me on this one), and dinner at Highclere Castle hosted by Lord and Lady Carnarvon.

All stops were pulled and that meant out came the celebrity spokesmen such as tennis champion Boris Becker and art gallery owner/London's man-about-town Tim Jefferies. Both were delightful and added a touch of boyish charm to an event that saw more men then women attend.
