So I am wondering if there is anyone out there who is getting married/engaged without a ring. I seriously can not stand jewelry, rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. I don’t even like touching them-it just totally freaks me out. <span class=”unmark”>
People ask me all the time what I am going to do when I get married if I don’t want a ring. I have actually never thought about it. My guy loves it bc its less money that he needs to spend and less stress on trying to pick something out. He could care less if he gets a ring or not when we get married.
I was wondering if anyone out there has an suggestions on what we could do instead of an engagement ring or wedding ring. A friend of mine suggested a tattoo, but I don’t think I really want one on my finger (I have other tattoos but you can’t see them unless I am wearing a tank-top). Besides I don’t want to be 80 years old with mark on my hand (at least the ones on my back, you won’t be able to see when I am older LOL).
Any suggestions would be appreciated 🙂

Well, going with the whole tattoo theme – my mom and her husband got matching tattoos after they got married. It’s a little rabbit poking out of a top hat (he is a magician, and she was his…i forget what you call it… "helper") his is on his arm, and her’s is on her hip. you could do something like that instead of tattooing a ring on your finger. just a thought… other than that – i have no clue! haha sorry!

My client did a tatoo of her husbands intitial and her daughters initial on her ring finger. Totally tasteful. She’s about 50 and a Beverly Hills housewife with a rocker past. They now just manage the Jonas Brothers! But it looks great on her, and it’s not tacky. She bakes me cookies every week! 🙂

80 years old with a mark on your ring finger won’t be any more noticeable, really, than an actual ring. I’d get a comfort-fit band if you’re just trying to find more comfortable jewelry (give it a few days and you won’t even remember you’re wearing one), a tat if you are trying to make sure other poeple know that you’re married without the ring, and if neither of these are for you… well, why do you need a ring, anyway? I’m sure you can come up with alternative vows that don’t require wedding rings!

I don’t think you need anything to replace the rings– they’re just an outward sign of an inner committment, and are definitely not necessary. I wouldn’t get a tattoo you don’t want, just to appease people that you have a "ring" on your finger…
