- Wedding: May 2016
@Oneeleven: It’s been kinda a non-topic for us for so long it’s hard for me to be casual about it… AND two days after my birthday we have a wedding to go to, AND another in June, and he doesn’t do well when feeling pressured.
I’ve got a silly Amazon private list set up which I’ve saved all my “favorites” in style in our range to, and am just waiting for a good occassion to send it. I’m really hoping I can catch the dang bouquet, and then it might be a little easier for me to send it.
He’s mentioned (and knowing our finnces I agree) that he couldn’t do it for another 2 years (he’s got a lot of catching up to do after putting off some thing for far too long), but I also know he’s probably only thought of places like the mall jewelry store where his little brother just bought what I estimate as a $4K ring set for his now finacee, and while I’ll admit I’m not so siantly as to not have a desire for something that looks just a nice as hers (bad, bad, Isilme, I know), I don’t want to ever learn he’d spent that much, even if he could. I want to show him some alternatives that csot less than $1K or even under $500.00 to help remove some of his preconceptions, but again, talk about it often just makes him feel pressured, and results in the opposite effect of what I wanted. I’m set to wait till at least next Saturday’s wedding is past, hopefully oes wells, hopefully he can see our friends are happy, and maybe I can send a “if you’re ever curious, here’s some stuff I like, if not, just don’t read this” email.
Also meant to add this one – it’s unusual:
