- Wedding: October 2012
Hey Bees! I know I’m not the only one who wouldn’t mind showing off the final setting, whether you have your pro-pics back or not, show us those dazzling Mr. & Mrs. bands! And just for fun, here’s some questions to go with it:
How far in advance did you get the bands? We got mine back in March but we didn’t order his until the end of September. (He kept dilly-dallying about ordering it and then it didn’t get here until the Wednesday before! I was so paranoid it wouldn’t get here in time!!!)
Did you pick your own band out or did he do it? I figured since he did such a good job on the engagement ring that I wanted to be surprised all over again with the band. (I basically knew what it would look like though, since we discussed it ahead of time.)
What kind of band did he go with? He went with tungsten, which truth be told, I thought was a little boring. 🙂
How often did you wear your band before the big day? I never did! The first time I saw it was when he put it on my finger during the ceremony.
Any funny or otherwise ring-related stories to share? I have really, really knobby knuckles and had lubed up my ring finger with vaseline to help with the process before the ceremony but during the ceremony he kept rubbing my fingers with his and it all came off; when it was time for him to put on the ring he couldn’t get it on, which lead to a slightly awkward, yet hilarious few moments before he finally had to basically jam it over my knuckle to get it on! Everyone in the front few rows were cracking up and those in the back probably didn’t know what was going on!
Show us those sparklies:
Here’s the only pro-pic I have of ours so far (still not-so-patiently waiting for the rest):
And here’s one I Instagrammed after the ceremony:
Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s!!!
