- Wedding: February 2013
Some words of advice/ reassurance would be much appreciated 🙂
I got my finger sized at the beginning of summer (FI proposed a month and a half later in July). The lady said it was a 5. I tried to take my own measurements at home using instructions I found online. I also came up with a 5. So I was pretty certain that my ring size is indeed a 5.
So FI proposes, and the ring is slightly too big. It won’t fall off when I wildly wave my hands around, but it slips up to the knuckle and the diamond spins around to the palm side of my hand. So I tell FI we need to get it resized.
A friend suggests waiting until right before the wedding day to do so since the guy who resizes it will also clean it and the diamond will be at its maximum brightness and very sparkly in pictures.
So with our wedding being 10 days away, we went today to get it resized.
The problem is- I neglected to think about the fact it’s winter, and immediately after the wedding we are moving to a tropical country where it doesn’t get colder than 80*. The guy measured my finger today at a 3.75 (craziness, I know. My fingers are the only petitie thing about me) but I was worried that would be too small since I tend to swell easily, so he said he’d resize it to be just shy of a 4. After getting home I realized how much my fingers swell in the summer, and now I’m freaking out the ring is going to be too small after we move. HELP! Do you think going down to “just shy of a 4” will be okay? I never take my ring off anyway, so if I’m swollen and it’s stuck on my finger it’s not that big of a deal but I don’t want it to look bad because my finger is puffy 🙁
