- Wedding: August 2016
So a little back story on “the ring.” Foubd out that SO was going to propose back in Jan. But it didn’t work out bc of my father (hahaha). Started looking at rings shortly after but I stopped looking bc I felt like I was silly to look at rings with my SO. Then we started to get back looking at rings and in early September, we had a diamond. Now, it was time for the setting…
I told my SO I wanted him to pick the setting. Told him I wanted a thin band and yellow gold. That was the criteria. Then he could go from there. At first, he was looking at halos. Then he decided he wanted to save some money for now and get a plain yellow gold setting and get a more elaborate setting in the future, then he decided ok he wanted a really, delicate pave setting, where the diamonds look kinda like glitter, bc the diamonds were so tiny. Then, finally he settled for a slightly thicker setting, where the diamonds were set with prongs, so you can actually see the individual diamonds. He thought it looks more proportionate with the center diamond. He didn’t want the halo anymore bc he thought the center diamond looked beautiful by itself. We looked at the setting last week and he waited for a price back on the setting, then today he decided that we should move forward with the ring.
Well we went to the jewelers this morning and we ordered the ring and gave them my diamond to set it in!!!! I’m sooo excited. I was really indecisive if I wanted yellow or rose gold but I went with yellow and I didn’t know if I wanted the head of the setting to be white so the diamond didnt show yellow color but I just did it all in yellow gold. My SO asked me if I was sure on the setting and I said yes of course! I wanted him to choose the setting so he did and I love it. Its simple and not flashy (wouldnt mind if it was though or if it was more simple) and I’m a really indecisive person so I am happy. Ring will be complete in 10 days to two weeks. Yayyy
After that, we went to breakfast and we talked about the wedding. I haven’t planned anything at all and I was thinking about 2016. If you read my other posts, you will see that we changed the date few times. Well anyways, I was thinking about 2016, but he really wants it to be next year bc he said there’s no point for us to wait so long. Problem is, summer is probably all booked up for next year and I will have less than a year to plan the wedding. Winter weddings are not an option bc we live in a state that it snows from December to March or April and since September, its been really cold here! So that’s something I have to figure out.
So my ring is getting made and I’m sooo excited!
