I rarely post, but just wanted some un-biased opinions.
Fi wanted to buy the wedding bands (one is for legal wedding, one for religious wedding) on his own with no input. I finally got to see them this weekend, and while I do love them, but they are a bit bigger than I expected.
I’m known to be a blingy girl at heart, but I don’t want people to talk about me behind my back, you know? Is it too much for day-to-day? I know my friends will just lie that they love it, even if they don’t.
Thx in advance 🙂

It *is* a lot of bling and does look a bit large, but “too blingy” is completely relative. If you are comfortable with it, cool go for it. If you’re not, then say so. 🙂 Granted, this is coming from a girl who isn’t allowed to wear more than two rings because of the nature of my work (hospital).

I think it looks normal and I like it. Who cares what other people say.

people are going to talk whether you want it or not – your FI bought them for you with love and for you to wear so enjoy them

Aww thanks ladies 🙂 Am feeling so much better!
I’m just second guessing because I know people will talk about it… but you are right, people talk about anything and everything.
I will wear and enjoy 🙂

I think it depends entirely on what your day to day life iS.
I mean, if you’re a social worker and going in to homes of people who are barely able to feed their kids, it would likely make some people uncomfortable or put off. If you work in a law firm – Rock it lady!!
(I don’t mean those as two concrete examples – but you get the idea. I got engaged when I was doing pediatric home visits in a low income neighborhood, and I didn’t feel comfortable even with my dainty 1/3 carat in some of the homes, but in other environments, it wouldn’t even occur to me)

Nope. No such thing. If you got it, wear it, and be happy for it!

I love it. Definitely not too much bling. To echo an earlier poster, people will talk behind your back no matter what — ‘too much bling,’ ‘too little bling’, or whatever the case may be. The way I see it, if the worst thing someone can find to gossip about is how beautiful your ring is, you’re doing pretty well right? 🙂
