Last month my dad passed away, which was totally devastating. My financee and I have been engaged for almost a year, we are in our 40’s, and both have been married before. But he called my dad last year asked if it was ok to marry me.. Very sweet even at our age. LOL My question is this, my mom mentioned she would like us to wear their wedding rings. They were married 54 years and would like the rings to be still connected and we both agree and think it’s like having all those years of love and the love will continue. We want to have the rings engraved but with what? another 54 years, or the love continues, or the original wedding date and the new one? Any ideas? What does everyone think?

Im sorry to hear about your dad. That must be so special to wear their wedding rings. If you guys plan on passing the rings down to your children, maybe you shoudn’t engrave your wedding date. Maybe something that would be able to work for generations to come?

Sorry I didnt mean to sound like i was assuming you guys were having kids. It was just a thought.

I think that is a very sweet gesture! However, do the rings appeal to you two? I know that I wouldn’t want to wear my moms wedding ring since a. it is matronly, b. my parents got divorced and so there isn’t a sense of eternal love with it. However, I agree with July and think that if you do like the rings and decide to have them engraved, the engraving should apply to future generations as well… Unless you could get your wedding date engraved small enough so the future sunbum’s can add their dates to it too!

I love the idea – it’s beautiful – And I like the engraving of the love continues! That way who knows it could continue for generations and generations!

How about if you made smaller engravings with your parents initials & their date and your initials & your date.
I like the idea of “love continues and letting it go on for generations too.

sorry to hear about your dad’s passing, but i love the idea of having both of the wedding dates engraved in it.

sweet idea! i don’t have any ideas for engraving, but i wanted to say that my parents began wearing my grandparents’ wedding rings after my grandparents both passed away–it’s a really sweet of honoring their memory!
