- Wedding: December 2017
I have always wanted two wedding bands – one on each side of the ring – because I love things to look symmetrical and even. FI knew this from the start and when we first bought the engagement ring we ordered one wedding band with the intention of buying the one for the other side for our 1 year anniversary. Well, I have talked about it in previous posts but long story short – FI was laid off a couple times this year and when the talk of Christmas/birthday and anniversary came up, I suggested a couple things and then instead of getting any gifts this year to maybe get the other half of the ring but that it was up to him. I didn’t really hear much until Christmas day about it, until I gave him a couple small things and he said that he had decided on the other half of the ring and that is why I didn’t have a physical gift but that we would order it soon and I would have to wait until the wedding to get it.
Fast forward and here we are, I will be bringing in my engagement ring tomorrow to get the other half made. Because the band fits with the ring, they have to line up the diamonds on the band so it all looks even. Sooooo they said it would be about 3-4 weeks. We were going to bring it in together on Saturday but as I was calculating out the 3 weeks, I noticed we might not have it back by Valentine’s day if it took that short of a time. FI and I talked and he said to bring it in tomorrow, so I called the jeweler we have worked with since we FIRST went to go look at rings and she set it all up. That being said, I will have to leave my sparkly with them. Soooo sad, and it will be soo weird to not wear it for a couple weeks. I have a plain band to wear until I get it back but it certainly won’t be the same. Makes me so sad!! I’m gonna miss my precious sparkler!!!
