Oh girl, I totally understand.  Having problems that your girlfriends can understand best, but it’s a completely unnatural time for them and no one is on skype, gchat or facebook chat – at least no one that you really want to talk to.

The silver lining? That even though it really sucks now, hair grows and diamonds can (eventually) be replaced, you and your fiance share so many situations where you would usually turn to others but instead you end up turning to your fiance.  Mr.D and I have had so many extra conversations and I think it really has brought us closer.

Not that UK/Aussie time (10 hours) is that much closer than Aussie/US time.  But if you ever need to vent feel free to PM me.  I don’t really have any close female friends in the UK  either – being the trailing spouse/fiancee can really stink. <3

I’m so sorry. I hate bad days like that. Can you contact the jewler that fixed the ring the first time and tell them that it fell out again? Do you have insurance on your ring? That may cover the replacement of that stone.

Sending you BIG HUGS and positive vibes for a better week.

I’m sorry you had a crappy day.  But your jeweler should fix the ring without a problem — any competent jeweler knows that losing stones is one of the dangers of pave, and those teeny diamonds are really cheap.  I doubt it would be worth putting through your insurance even if the jeweler does make you pay rather than just fixing it.  Just out of curiosity, is the ring a "brand name" setting (like Ritani, Tacori, etc.) or is it custom or an independent design?  That might change the way it’s serviced when you take it in to be fixed.

I hope today is a better day!

Oh my gosh — my hair got butchered last week, too!! I’ve got five weeks til my bridal portraits and I can only hope it grows out a little bit. After only a week, though, it’s already looking better, so there’s hope. 

I think the most important thing you mentioned in this post is how awesome your FI was in responding to these (majorly!) stressful things! What a sweet, supportive guy.

I feel for ya!  Hair is such a personal thing, and even if no one else in the room is concerned with my hair, if I don’t feel good about it, it directly impacts the way I feel about my day. 

I’m so sorry about your rings also!  You need a (((((((((((((((((hivehug))))))))))))))))))!

It sounds like you’ve got a GOOD GUY also!

Oh man, that sucks. I feel so badly for you! As for you hair, can you wear a neat hat part of the time? Or can any other stylist redeem it somewhat?

 Many hugs to you!

I’m sorry you had a bad day… Ice cream and wine are cure-alls however!  Your girlfriends here understand your pain! (and it sounds like your fiance does too…)

Awww your guy gets it on some level.  They don’t understand completely, but if he is bringing you ice cream then he knows you’re stressing.  He probably thinks you look beautiful no matter what your hair looks like and all that matters is that you have each other!

Hive hugs to you A!  (((((Aloweha))))))

Your hair will grow out. until then you’ll find a new way to look fabulous and may like it more! My bff is six hours away.  My sis (other bff) four to five hours away.  My other local bff just moved several thousand miles away.  So I feel your pain.

Call your FI.  Have him communicate what happened to your ring, how SAME stone fell out AGAIN..they may have a duplicate setting and can find an exact match for your stone and reimburse you for the cost of having it re-set..with diamond too.  Or you could have them send it (free of cost) and insured back and let them fix it quickly.

I had a diamond fall out too years back.  Kept falling out too.  It is troublesome.

Hey..what movie did you watch?  And most importantly what red wine do you prefer?

We may not be there to give hugs in person, but consider us friends too!

Yes bad days suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I’m so sorry you’re feeling the way you do.  I’m starting to really understand why people stress so much before the wedding.  Mines in 3 months and I’m literally wishing I’m on my honeymoon already.  But I’m really trying to just learn a life lesson from all this….crappy days happen and things will always come up that we don’t like.  But life goes on……..whether you’re happy or not.  So just take it as a life lesson and say bye bye bad day!!  Hope the rest of your week was better!!!  *hugs*
