I am part of a very traditional conservative family and very traditonal and conservative myself so i need to make sure what im doing is okay and not weird, OTT or some other negative-sounding word.
Tradition 1: 3 months wage on the ring.
Tradition 2: The groom should give a wedding gift to the bride.
The ring tradition was broken when my fiance had known which ring she wanted since she was 3 and the size of the diamond was nowhere near what I could have afforded (as in she wanted something a lot smaller).
In our family it has always been tradition to give the bride a string of pearls on the morning of the wedding day. The set of pearls (due to the ring being smaller than i had been willing to spend) is about $5000 more than the price of her ring.
Is that wrong???
I know she has always wanted a beautiful stand of pearls and this strand is a beautiful strand that can be then broken down into two bracelets and a necklace (through some intelligent clasps). google “Kailis versatility strand”
I dont want to spend too much and i dont think the cost would worry her but still is it too weird???
