You’re crazy!! haha I’m just kidding, but I definitely know what you mean. Every decision I’ve made so far, 5 minutes after the fact I’m thinking, but there are so many other good ideas and am I sure I made the right choice? I did it with my dress, and my mom just said to me, stop looking! There will always be something better out there, and if you keep looking you’ll never be satisfied with what you have! Which is very true, even though I didn’t want to hear it at the time : ) Hope that helps, and I’m sure when you get your ring back from being sized you’ll look at it and say I love my ring!

I know this feeling. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that you bought a vintage ring. With vintage rings, there’s a sort of “one-of-a-kind” feeling to each one. You never know what ring could be around the corner. You can look and look and look and probably continue to find rings that you like. Then there’s the urgency of knowing that if it is sold, it will be gone forever. It can make you a little crazy!

I also wanted a vintage ring, and we did the same as you guys, looking both online and at some atinque shops and antique fairs in our area. Eventually I decided that I liked the selection online better and I sent my boyfriend a ton of links to rings that I liked. He bought one in January, and even though I have a hunch which one he picked, I still keep looking at rings online!! And I keep second guessing my choices! But there is no end to that madness.

I experienced the same thing…until I got to see mine again. We purchased it and then it made me think….Am I sure that’s the one. When we picked it up again I tried it on to make sure it fit right and I fell in love with it all over agin. Maybe you’re thinking about it because it is such a huge purchase πŸ™‚

You’re not crazy! Or at least I am too. I always end up shopping even after I buy something just to confirm its the best deal.

I know how you feel. I don’t think you are feeling remorse over picking the ring but a little sad that the fun of ring shopping is coming to a close. I felt the same. I picked out my ring in an hour and made so many excuses to come back to visit the store to retry it on just so I could prolong the experience. =)

It sounds gorgeous! & Anyone can keep looking forever for the perfect ring. Over & over & keep finding ones that are gorgeous, over & over! lol Trust me I LOOOOVE looking at ring porn! πŸ˜› But that still doesn’t mean your ring isn’t gorgeous, because I am sure it is! πŸ™‚ It sounds like you love it. Give it some time & then wedding band shopping will be next as a PP mentioned!

It’s so EASY to get ring remorse when you continue to look at rings! Here’s a word of advice, from experience: stop looking at rings/ring porn! I have a gorgeous solitaire that I love, but after I got engaged I became obsessed with ring porn on weddingbee.. I had to majorly cut down because I kept thinking someone else’s ring was more elaborate/bigger/prettier than mine.. and I haven’t felt any of that since! πŸ™‚

I think everybody gets a little bit of remorse and/or envy regarding ALL things wedding, after you have made the final purchase and it’s “set in stone”. I had a little bit of ring remorse regarding the setting. I don’t even know what you’d call my setting- it’s just a simple solitaire with six prongs on a solid band. I felt like I should have been more creative, like got a different kind of band, or maybe added a halo, just that I should have done something more unique and that mine seemed “plain”. That has passed, and now I am beginning to feel a little bit of dress regret. My Future Sister-In-Law got married two years ago in a GORGEOUS Maggie Soterro, and now that I look at her pics again, I feel like my Wtoo gown isn’t as beautiful or elegent. I have also gone back and forth about whether or not I like the cake design, the venue, the shoes, just about everything. But, it always passes just as quickly as it starts. I love my ring, and there are so many things about it that make me so lucky to have it. I know that when my dress comes in (hopefully in the next few weeks!) and I put it on again. I’ll remember why I fell in love with it. 

The thing is, once you see your ring again, you will know you picked the right one. Even if it’s different or “imperfect”, I can assure you, you really did get the right ring and you will love it. And don’t be suprised (more importantly, don’t let it get to you) if you find you second guess a lot of things while you wedding plan. Trust your gut!

Your not crazy. Just remember you guys chose this ring for a reason. Whether you were rushed or not, doesn’t matter. It was the right ring when you saw it and it will be the right ring when you get it back from re-sizing. I’ll tell you what my Fiance told me when I was driving myself (and him) crazy second-guesing every wedding deicision. “Make a decision, don’t look back and do not keep shopping.” I repeat that sentence to myself all the time and it really helps keep me focused on moving forward.
