- Wedding: August 2014
With bills and things to pay, we only had a budget of 600 for my engagement ring. Where i live, most common middle class people like us spend less than a thousand dollars on an e-ring and set, so that was fine with me of course! However, i showed him this lovely pink moissanite ring with a halo setting and plain band on moissaniteco and told him i loved it, and he wont shake the ring off, even though im searching for alternative rings that dont happen to be 297 dollars above budget! He knows im okay with another ring, but our wedding date is set for a year away, and he refuses to consider us as engaged without that ring on my finger! He told me in january that the longest i would have to go until we are officially engaged was july, but so far we have zero dollars saved for any ring at all, and we wont be able to start saving for a few more weeks, minimum. Im nearly for sure I wont have a ring by july now, and i cant help but feel disappointed. I think its very sweet for SO to go through the extra trouble to get me my dream ring, but im just ready to tell the world im engaged to this wonderful man and be happy! I am nearly in tears over this, im just so ready and so upset that im having to wait on a piece lf jewelry to start planning my wedding in high gear! I dont want such a short engagement, because we have to have a large wedding and only a year to plan it! He wont budge on this, and im just ready and july is so close and now i probably have to wait longer! How can something be so close and so far away?
