- Wedding: September 2010
I haven’t shared this sooner, because honestly, it’s really been bothering me….
Hubby lost his wedding band on our honeymoon. 🙁 We went on a cruise, and on disembarkment we were in a waiting lounge. We both took our rings off to put lotion on our hands, and while doing that they called our number to get off the ship. So, I picked my rings back up quick, grabbed my luggage & off we went.
After about an hour, including customs, luggage claim & getting onto our airport shuttle, he looked down & said “where’s my ring?” I about threw up…. I knew right then, he left it on that table in the lounge. I freaked out, called Royal Carribean, they told us to find an agent there at the port asap. Told the agent what happened, they radio’d onto the ship, a search was done, but they never found it. We checked back w/them a few times, to see if it showed up in their lost & found, but it never did. 🙁
Ladies…..I cried my eyes out, for almost 2 hours there at the port. I mean, we were on our stinkin’ honeymoon!! Only 7 days after the wedding, the band was gone. I’ve shed a few tears since then. Hubby even tried to make up for it, and got himself another band, at Walmart the day after we got back (that was all we could afford after just paying all cash for both the wedding & honeymoon completely on our own). But, to me it’s just not the same….
I’m considering getting him another for Christmas. But, the one we’d gotten is no longer on sale for the awesome deal we got back over the summer ($80 vs. over $150). So, I may end up having to get him something different again, or just let it go for longer.
Also, I’m kind of sad because our wedding pics have the orginal band in them, and we had some pro-portraits taken on the ship where you can see both of our rings.
I know, I’m being pretty silly. Has anyone had this happen? I’ve been told it’s pretty common for guys to lose them. My mom said my dad lost his original one week after the wedding as well, lol, and they’ve been married 35 yrs this year and he’s never gotten another (dad’s not a jewelry guy at all).
Also, any suggestions on some bands closer to the $50 range?
This is what the original band looked like:
