Since our engagement,
I have been obsessed over getting my fiance an engraved ring…what do you think I want it to say?
Forever & Always
I love you endlessly
are some good guesses. Something sweet sentimental with an everlasting touch?
Smarty McGee here came up with getting can’t touch this engraved in hubby’s ring. And hubby lucky does not doubt for one minute that his ring could quite possibly get this saying lining his ring. He smiles at the saying, actually.
I know what you are thinking. When I hear the words can’t touch this, I also just start rapping MC Hammer’s song. Embarassing, I know all the words.
But the saying holds true; the band is a symbol of our love, it truly can’t be touched or broken. We are making that commitment next year to each other for the rest of our lives, that no matter what we face through life, we will persevere and stay strong.
I think it also serves as a little note for him, that any time he may take his ring off, for whatever reason, he can be reminded of our commitment to one another. And, if some risky lady attempts to wisk him away, he can simply show her ‘hey, you can’t touch this’. It is even stated in my ring!
I would really like some feedback from other brides. We both love the idea of it right now, but do you think that down the road, we would grow to get sick of the engraving?
Are you getting any quirky engravements?

It sounds fun and cute, but most important it sounds YOU, it’s all about you as a couple.
PD: and yes I’m humming the MC Hammer song now.. oh boy.

We got “Winning” engraved in our rings. We really connected over the whole Charlie Sheen drama, so it seems appropriate
I say go it. Inside jokes are quirky and fun and you guys will always have a good story to tell.

I love your reasoning behind it. You should definitely do it!

Thanks ladies for the feedback! I don’t so feel so foolish anymore 🙂
Just a tad of reassurance is what I needed!
WINNING = LOVE IT!!!

SO and I are going to have a ‘nice’ set of rings and an ‘everyday’ set of rings, and I really want to have “As you wish” (from Princess Bride) engraved on the inside of the ‘everyday’ set. I’m thinking it would be a nice surprise for him. 🙂
Of course, I’m also going to pay the officiant to launch into the Humperdink-Buttercup wedding speech at the rehearsal as well.

I’d love for us to do an inside joke inside our bands. I think the band I will want will be too thin, but maybe I’ll get one in his. If I can get something engraved in both of ours, I’d like our date and our nicknames for each other.
I say, go for it! Do something fun! Noone will really ever see it but him and you.

Hehehe Fiance and I celebrated our engagement with a fun filled summer of kickball with our best friends. We actually ended up winning the whole league (120 teams!) so we’re thinking of getting 2011 Kickball Champs engraved as a reminder of a really happy time in our lives. I think it’s just for you and you should do what’s right for you and the hubs!

That sounds fun! I think my favorite I’ve seen is “put this back on!” or something like that. I’m not sure what we’ll do yet.

I think it’s adorable. Go for it!

@Miss Luck of the Irish: We haven’t spoken about engraving, but we’re most likely not going to get our wedding band engraved. His ring, especially, can’t be engraved.
