- Wedding: May 2012
1. We are walking into the mall to use up a coupon I had and he observes that the jewerly stores have a lot of sales going on.
–> I don’t think think he’d buy from them (he’s got a college buddy whose family is into distributing I think plus he might be more apt to do bluenile), but shock he noticed and commented.
2. After the mall (it’s errand day), we buy a disposal for our sink for the renovation and we opt for a slightly more expensive one that is quieter. As we get it back to the car, he wonders if I would have wanted the cheaper one if he told me the $70 difference would go to the ring fund?
–> Ring fund? I might now have a ring fund! This is the *first* I’ve heard he might start setting cash aside. (He has enough in saving to buy one tomorrow, but getting him to earmark it as such is a different matter.)
3. In the car, continuing the above comment/conversation, he comments how it’s unfair women gets rings and guys don’t get anything> I told him I’d get him a watch and he informs me he’d never wear a $5k watch, he’d be too worried about it. (I then tell him it’s not that reasonable, because women’s families tend to pay more for weddings than the grooms does, so it evens out).
–>Apparently he’s got a budget in mind (NOT something we’ve discussed before, beyond me commenting that 2 months salary is ridiculous marketing by DeBois).
4. I commented on the $5k, saying I hadn’t really looked at them enough to even know what I’d want, beyond that I didn’t like most of the settings that I tried on when I was with my cousin who was picking her ring up. I added I knew I didn’t like things like Emerald Cut, but didn’t even really know what some others are like Princess Cut. He informs me I was talking settings then switched to cuts, which did I mean? And Princess Cut is…
–> He has researched rings enough to identify some basics such as cuts and settings.
Plus the night before I had been on Costo’s website and he made me go back to the front page so he could click into their ring advertised on the front page that was $1 million one of a kind. Of course that was to make fun of it.
So, share your progress stories!
