- Wedding: January 2012
So before we got engaged the Future Mr. and I went ring shopping. I decided that in the end I wanted the engagement ring (a simple 1 carat round with yellow gold) and then a solitaire enhancer to slip over the ring to make one ring that was both engagement ring and wedding ring. Well a few weeks ago I started thinking, well what about the times I may not want to wear THE ring like vacations or while working the criminal justice community (you don’t want to make yourself a target) but I didn’t want to go ringless… So I talked it over with The Future Mr. and we decided I’d get a simple plain titanium band (he actually suggested titanium because he liked the idea that it would match his), but I feel a little silly now. Like I had this thing planned out, we spent a good chunk on the ring enhancer, and now I’m likely to have to explain to people how the ring enhancer is my wedding band, and this other ring is ALSO my wedding band. I had originally thought that I’d only wear the titanium ring when I didn’t wear THE ring, but now I’m thinking both… and just feeling like this is some weird emotional thing and I feel… sillly.
