    I got my ring while on vacation in NY.  It was super romantic and exciting and amazing.  Dress shopping was fun and I love my dress.  But due to some family/mother drama I was the only one excited to be dress shopping.  It didn’t ruin the day but it definitely put a damper on the day.

    Ring. You will be looking at that sucker the rest of your LIFE!


    Having said that, my dress was equally expensive!

    I feel so superficial for saying this but I found them equally as exciting!

    Ring for me! I picked a dress under time/budget constraints, and I wasn’t super comfortable with being put on display dress after dress (even though my ladies were supportive and fabulous). The ring, on the other hand, was perfectly picked and given to me with just us there.

    My ring is in getting replated now and I miss it…

    Getting the ring was more exciting probably because I didn’t pick out my dress my Future Mother-In-Law is making it lol.  But they are both exciting but more of the propsal = ring for me 🙂 I was so happy that day.

    I chose ring because my dress was SUCH a let down. It’s honestly so disappointing still. So yeah, my forever ring that I get to look at every day is much more exciting than the let down dress that I wore for 12 hours.

    My forever ring. I was excited about getting a gorgeous gown but in actuality it’s just 1 dress for 1 day and my ring I wear all the time, every day, for the rest of my life.

    The ring, I got it on a surprise vacation trip so every time I look at it it makes me smile. My dress made me smile, but I wasn’t super excited.

    The ring. I knew he was gonna give it to me on our 2 year anniversary trip. But I didn’t know how or when. It ended up being in our hotel room and very private which I loved.

    Agreed! Getting the ring (and the proposal!) was definitely more exciting and less stressful for me at least!

    The ring! The greatest surprise/happiest moment ever!! And something that you’ll look at every day, for the rest of your life. More memories attached to your ring and your relationship together. A dress is super fun to shop for but realistically, you will wear it one day. The ring symbolizes so much more.
