- Wedding: August 2014
While the title may lead you to believe that there was a breakup I am happy to say thats not the case, however, everything has gone completely wrong. Our wedding was planned for Saturday, and we were forced to cancel because of some horrible circumstances. First off, my dads truck broke down in Utah ( he is a truck driver) and the repairs were going to take too long and he wouldnt be back in time for the wedding. Every girl wants her dad walking her down the aisle, so we decided that we would still get married, and have my grandfather walk me down the aisle, but only have a small ceremony so that we could get married and have a real ceremony and reception later when my dad could be with us. My grandfathers health is not very good. So we wanted him to be there when we got married in case he wasnt there for the real wedding next summer. The very next day we found out that his health is actually much worse than we thought. And he wouldnt even be able to make it to a small ceremony. He said to just go to the JOP and be happy. My heart is broken. Weve been planning the wedding and looking forward to that day for almost 3 years now, and im so dissapointed. Some people tried to convince me not to cancel, but I am so upset about everything happening with my grandpa I knew I would just spend the whole day crying and thats not how I want to remember my wedding. We are now happily married and although nothing has gone the way I would have wanted I am so blessed to have this man as my husband, finally!
Now, on to my ring problems. We purchased my engagement ring and wedding band from Kay Jewelers. Big mistake. I didnt know how horrible they were until it was too late, but they will never get another penny from me. We spent thousands of dollars on my rings, and when I went to get my engagement ring inspected they told me that my stone was loose. They sent it in to have the prongs tightened and I got it back about a week and a half later. And it looked awful! Two prongs were bent and one curved out and then up over the diamond. And the diamond was set lower because of the bend on one corner. I called and complained and they gave me the solution to have my ring repaired at a local Jareds so that I could be there and tell them what was wrong and because I told them I refused to send my ring off again. Well, they basically took some metal off of one prong and polished it. And told me that that was the best they could do and that my ring would never look the way it did when it was new. Seriously?! So now I have two wacky prongs that drive me absolutely crazy and a crooked diamond!!!! I am trying to convince my husband to let me take it in to my favorite local jeweler and have it reset, but so far it isnt going to well. I just get sad and angry every time I look at my ring now. =(
So I guess I am just a little emotional and having a horrible week. =/ it happens I suppose.
