- Wedding: May 2012
So I know I’m going to sound selfish, but ring shopping has been stressful for me!!!I don’t really have anyone else to vent to other than the bee! Warning: This is long!
Background: My man lives 9 hours away and I have only seen him TWICE since Christmas time. So it’s very difficult for us to actually go ring shopping together. Online ring shopping is NOT the same… I’m sure a majority of us will agree with this. So he sent me out on a mission to find rings I liked and didn’t like… so that I could point him in the right direction.
Also, he proposed without the ring (wanted to get something I would like) and we wanted to get married either in late May/early June or December- the 2 other times that we are for sure seeing each other this year. We aren’t doing a lavish wedding- just a courthouse kind of a deal. So we are strapped on time .
Fast forward to now, he hasn’t even ordered MY ring!!!!! I’ve already ordered his. It’s freaking me out!!!!! We have 28 more days until we see each other agian!
Now a couple of things, while I went out ring shopping I fell in LOVE with a ring setting! I showed him and he knows that it is IT! See pictures below for it 🙂 I LOVE IT. Everytime I try on rings, I instantly compare it to this! Nothing has ever come close knocking it out!
Also, not to mention.. I found a jeweler that I absolutely loved. They educated me, followed up with me, even was able to order my setting even though they didn’t offer that particular brand, and his wedding band. They were also able to slash $1210 off a competitors price. Wonderful! I had it made for him! All he had to do is just find a rock (which to that I said that I would absolutely LOVE to have an Amora Moissionate gem, a diamond can be upgraded later if he really wanted to)
Now, Future Mother-In-Law has been helping him out because where he’s at, all they have are some janky chain-type jewelry stores. She’s located about 1 hr from me. She has made comments about it saying:
To me: “I just want you to be wearing something safe” (Yes rings = $$$, but SERIOUSLY!?)
To her son “You should only get her a 1/3-1/2 carat diamond.” (It’s our choice, not yours)
She’s trying to throw out rings that she thinks that I would like. Excuse me, but I’m pretty sure I found IT. Please do not try to distract my future husband towards something that I may not even like! I am so nervous that he is going to NOT get the ring that I have my heart set on!!!
I do not mind her helping with taking his money and buying it from the store for him since he can’t be here, but I absolutely do NOT want her input on what she thinks I should be wearing.
I know this is a strange situation considering we are hours apart and his mother is involved with our ring shopping. But I found what I want, what I like, and he just needs to get his ass moving so that it’s here on time! Why can’t he just go the jewler that has the banging bargain, get the stone from MoissionateCo.com, and call it good. Men are frustrating sometimes….
