Damn……so my loving, incredible fiance bought me a 2 carat ring (which we already agree will be used as a family heirloom)……However, his Mom just made a comment that she expects our wedding to be “flashy”……Has anyone been judged just based on the ring? Because we’re having a low-key, outdoor, DIY, offbeat wedding and I admit that I feel really, really bad right now because my Future Mother-In-Law thinks I’m some gold-digger, flashy girl that I don’t think I am– Not to mention I come from a humble, midwestern family who agrees with our low-key venue/wedding 🙁 🙁 🙁

Don’t let her get to you! Won’t she be surprised when your wedding isn’t “flashy”! 🙂 Congratulations!! 🙂

Do what you want!! I don’t think the wedding style should based off the ring. People will be there because they care about the two of you and should be happy to celebrate in which ever party style you choose!

I would not worry about it. Don’t stress yourself out financially over trying to be “flashy”. You’re doing what you want, and it sounds great!

People have made comments about our wedding b/c of my ring too, and I don’t like it. I was in a wedding this past weekend where the photographer made a big deal about my ring and how he wanted to do our wedding. People can be down right tacky sometimes. I wouldn’t worry about, and have the wedding you and your fiance want!! Good luck.

We get those comments just because we chose to have our wedding in our city instead of the suburbs where we’re from. It’s not true at all for us, either, and I don’t think you should worry about it – I always just say that we just want a wedding that is fun for our guests and us, but that it won’t be very flashy.

Our wedding will similar in style to my ring, but has no reflection on the size of the gems in it. The ring was designed to reflect my interests (early to mid 20th century) and me as a person. Despite the size of the diamond, there will be very little sparkle at the wedding, in fact there wasn’t going to be any until I inherited some rhinestone sticker things from my cousin’s post-wedding pile, even then that’s it. The ring is supposed to compliment you, not the wedding.
