- Wedding: July 2008
If you’re ready for the HORROR story of the year, Listen up!… My fiance and I have been together for 5 years, So of course over time we discussed things like getting married and picking rings. We actually went together and picked our own rings so we wouldn’t be disappointed or wearing something we don’t really like. The first time we went to a jewelry store in a local mall and I picked and fell in love with a platinum 2 carat bridal set (it was fairly expensive)… We went home and talked about it and agreed to keep “looking” incase I changed my mind (or in his case- found a cheaper ring) a few months later we went to the Navy exchange and looked at a couple more rings, I seen some that were nice and really reasonable, So I picked a 11/2 carat white gold set ( personally im not really a fan of yellow gold) We both agreed on that one and my Fiance told me he’d put the ring on hold and make payments towards it so I wouldn’t know when my proposal was coming. A whole year had passed and I noticed that I hadn’t got my ring yet, So I went back to base with my cousin to look at the ring… It was still there, But it looked NOTHING like I remembered! So my cousin and I drove around and looked at rings until I found a BEAUTIFUL white gold bridal set!! It was 3 rings, and the center was 11/2 carats with side stones- It was literally ” LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT” So I rushed back home and told my Fiance that I found a new ring that I LOVE and it was cheaper than the ring I originally chose at base ( by half or more!) I knew he would be happy to save some money… So I took him to the store to see this new ring, He LOVED it and the price was fantastic!… The next day we went to base and cancelled my original ring… I was so happy! I just knew that I was about to get this ring Id fell in love with at the other store!… About 2 weeks had passed and my fiance had finally got my ring!!! That night , He proposed… He opened this little white box and there was this little tiny ring inside just peeking at me!… My Fiance had got me the wrong ring…. He bought me a 3 band ring with side stones, the center is 1/2 carat and its set in yellow gold!.. Instead of buying the ring I hand picked at this upscale store, He went back to base and bought me a “copy cat” of the ring I chosen. I was so disappointed!!! I just got the ring about a month ago and I hardly wear it, I can’t just come out and tell him that he got the wrong ring without sounding like a “Queen ‘B’ ” so im dropping hints… Ladies, What should I do? He’s been with me for 5 years already, so he knows me well… I know he knows that Im disappointed.. But Im at a loss for the right words.
