    First off I can understand your frustration and dissapointment that your other ring won’t be in on time, but I think you are overreacting because you do have a wedding band already.

    I do think that you could ask them what they are going to do for you for the inconvenience, and I would suspect they will give you a discount but you want to be calm, mature, and respectful when having this disscussion. People do not like dealing with emotional people.

    Additionally, I don’t think it would benefit you (time and cost) wise to sue them over this. You are still going to get your ring, you just have to wait a bit longer.

    To be honest, on your wedding the wedding rings will be far from your mind. There is so much love going on that you don’t even think about the small things.

    Not to sound mean, but SERIOULSY?! you want to sue the store b/c of a mishap(them ordering the wrong ring??) Why would you wait until 2 months before the wedding to order the band to begin with?? what if it was on back order?? would you wanna sue them then? Did they give your Fiance a ETA of when the original band was suppose to come in?? if they did and it was past the date, then you should of spoken to a manager or went in long before you did. Im sorry but if it doesnt come in on time, i dont htink you can blame the store, you waited until 2 months before your wedding to order it… im 7 months out and ordered mine last month, just in case..

    @pk27:  Sue the store? Isn’t that a bit ridiculous?

    This is a huge pain, and I get that you’re frustrated, but put things into perspective please. You can sue if a doctor messes something up, but this is a pretty standard customer service issue. I am not saying that you’re wrong… but I think rather than suing, you should demand your money back as a first step.

    I hope you’re joking about suing… America is such a sue-happy culture, it really is ridiculous. You really want to spend the time and money to get lawyers involved? Come on.

    I don’t think this is a big deal.  You already have a wedding band – one is plenty for your wedding.  You can re-order the second band and wear it when it comes in.

    Yeah I get in the heat of anger thinking “sue,” I often told myself I was going to stink bomb the entire admin office when I was attending college because of mess ups with credits etc. You can’t sue and if you did it would cost you too much for it to matter.

    You can ask them what they intend to do to make up for the time and trouble. Don’t expect they will, but they provided insufficient service. It’s not your job to babysit people who do this for a living. However, the late check in on the ring was maybe a mistake. But what’s done is done. Honestly, since word of mouth is so important in the wedding industry they will probably be glad to offer something to you simply because they wouldn’t want the black mark on their rep.

    I say vent it out, drink a vodka soda, and angrily scratch mustaches onto magazine faces. : )

    I would be irritated, but honestly I wouldn’t be as livid as you seem to be.  People make mistakes, don’t shop there again.  Hopefully they’ll offer you something, but I think it’s ridiculous to sue them.  I can understand maybe for pictures (pictures of the ring) on that day you want all the bands there.  But you DO have a wedding band that he can put on your finger that day, and I think that is all that matters.

    Can you sue? Sure but it would be a frivolous lawsuit. Honestly you just shouldn’t give them your business anymore after this. But you are blowing this out of porportion. You already have a band. Just take a deep breath.

    @piacavoleKt:  “and angrily scratch mustaches onto magazine faces.”  LOL I love this!

    OP, while I agree that their service was insufficient, you can’t sue them because of it.  However, I’d assume that if you told them how disappointed you were and explained your situation in a calm manner, they’ll probably offer you some sort of a discount.

    Good luck, and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

    Holy overreacting, Batman.

    You already have a wedding band. Your wedding ring is nowhere near as important as your actual wedding or the sentiment behind it. People are human. Mistakes happen. Dial back the bridezilla, have a glass of wine and a bubble bath and remind yourself what’s important as your wedding approaches! I know it’s easy to get swept up in the details, but it’d be a real shame if your awesome meaningful wedding was totally overshadowed by biterness about a material object….especially when it’s just an extra ring.

    No, no you cannot sue.  Ask for compensation for their error and move on.

    I don’t see what the huge deal is. Stores make mistakes and that’s okay. Ask for a discount. They’ll give you one since it was their error. You already have one wedding band. Just add the other when it comes in. No big deal.
