- Wedding: March 2013
FI and I went to get our wedding bands today at the private jeweler where we got my e-ring. It is a far drive from where we live and it is a busy time of year for both of us so we had to order today. Unfortunately we got the only bad sales lady there. She did not know her stuff and kept telling me what I ‘should’ get instead of listening to what I wanted. At one point after saying she would have a wax mold made of my vision (because the store didn’t have it) she backtracked and said they would do a cad image instead because they ‘knew I wouldn’t like it’ and didn’t want to be out the $150 to make the mold……on a $3000 ring 🙁 I HATE being told by strangers what I would or would not like. And her bad attitude definitely brought out the b*tch in me in return.
I ended up just caving and buying the matchingband because it is so far from home and they are the only dealer that carries ritani for HOURS. I’m pretty disappointed. I really wanted a fun experience band shopping with FI instead it made me feel like I was a whiny spoiled girl who was expecting too much. I do like the ring I ordered but I wish I wouldn’t have such a bad memory of my bAnd shopting experience. I left sad instead of over the moon.
FI spent a small fortune there- they should have at least tried to help instead of just trying to make me order a custom band sight unseen.
