- Wedding: March 2015
Hey bees – I just had an amazing saturday! SO suggested we look at jewellery, and he let me try on engagement rings!!! I couldn’t believe it – he had been so cagey about it for ages!! He even told me I needed to get my ring sized for him (yay!!!)… It is all looking up so suddenly, he has something planned for our anniversary on the 1st of March that I’m not allowed any info about, we looked at rings annddd he asked about my thoughts on placeholder rings.
The only thing that has left me confused (coz everything else has me bouncing off walls happy and excited!) is the placeholder ring thing – I’m not really sure what to think about it. I think an engagement ring is so special because my man has picked it for me – If I was to pick a ring for myself, I’d be cheap!! He said he doesn’t want to spend money on something I don’t like. His idea was that he would design me a placeholder ring that is engraved and such and without gems, then I can put that on my other hand when we get an engagement ring and [wedding ring – future].
What do you ladies think about placeholder rings? Do you think he should pick the ring? Or propose with “the” ring? How common are these rings?
I was gobsmacked – it actually completely surprised me!
Thank you ladies in advance for your thoughts!
