- Wedding: July 2010
I’m a first time poster, but a long time lurker. I’ve been browsing WeddingBee for months now and I’ve gotten so many good ideas from the talented women on this site.
I’ve decided to come out of hiding and begin posting. I got engaged this past August and our wedding is set for July 31st, 2010. We have most of the major stuff done, so at this point, it’s the little things!
Recently my fiance and I have been looking at and doing some research on wedding bands. I have a solitaire white gold engagement ring that I love, but I think I want to do something a little different for the band. I’m a nurse so I won’t be able to wear the engagement ring at work (it would tear gloves), so I really want to pick out a wedding band that’s unique and fun that I can wear at work. My fiance has a great relationship with a jeweler here in town and we’ve gone to look at the bands there a few times, but nothing has really jumped out at me. I don’t want the traditional solid gold band, nor do I want just a gold band with diamonds in it.
The more research that I do, the more that I think maybe I should look into alternative metals. It would be really cool to be able to spend significantly less on the band (my e-ring was expensive enough!) and I’ve really liked a lot of the things that I’ve come across. I’ve looked through Titanium Knights’s store on Etsy and loved a lot of that, so I’m wondering if any Bees have suggestions for stores or places to get bands similar to those, perhaps with a little bit of color? I’m open to pretty much anything at this point, so any advice would be helpful! Thanks!
