Yeah, she needs to grow a filter. But you handled it perfectly!

Grafton86: Love it. She’s right to be embarrassed because what she said was embarrassing and poor reflection of her manners.

Maybe she was just confused? Sometimes things just slip out of people’s mouths.

Then she was embarrassed, by everyone in the room. Hmmm …

PABride:  confused about what exactly? How it’s not cool to bring up an ex from 10 years ago?

of course different engagement a different ring! You handled it very well, interesting though the friend’s sister saw the previous ring before?! that’s like many years apart.  You will likely encounter numerous unanticipated minor random comments throughout the engagement and planning process, but just don’t mind and focus on your own celebration!!!

Grafton86:  Wow, that friend’s sister is a little bit awful.

Had she even seen the previous ring he’d given out? 

I don’t think you could have handled it better than, “different girl. different ring”.

Grafton86:  I’ll tell you who says something like that, my MOM! Geez, some people. I was married before. And when I started talking about my ring she said, “Why don’t you just use your old one?” I was so caught off guard I didn’t have a cool comeback like you did, so high 5! I should’ve said, “Why didn’t you??” She’s married for a 2nd time. My mom says some weird stuff the older she gets.

CONGRATS!!!
