- Wedding: July 2018
A little while ago I posted about my concerns about buying a ring stack that I really loved because I felt like it was too ‘blingy’ even though it is what I really really wanted. Well, because of the wonderful comments I got here I decided to bite the bullet and go for it – including the customization I was concerned about.
No one had any pictures of this particular ring customized, and custom work is not refundable, so I have been experiencing some serious anxiety, even though my poor, patient fiancé has been reassuring me every day that the ring would be perfect.
They finally came, and I tried them all on to make sure that they’d fit, and managed to sneak some photos before Fiance took them and locked them in his gun safe. (He tells me it’s ‘in case of a break in’ but I think it’s more about making sure I don’t steal them before the wedding.) I was really worried about how my family would interpret these rings, because they’re quite a bit more blingy than I am used to, and my family is very frugal – but even my very critical mother ended up loving them, so thank you very much, ladies, for encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and for once not stick with the ‘safe’ choice. I absolutely adore them and I am going to be counting down every second of the next seven months before I can wear them.
Anyway, just in case someone wants to do something similar, here they are!
