So today Ryan and I decided to go pick out our wedding bands. Apparently we should have done this a long time ago because the people at the jewelry store were freaking out. But, we had no trouble getting exactly what we wanted and getting them well within the amount of time we have left before May 23!
I went in knowing that I wanted something with the same edge as my wedding band and I wanted it to be pave cut. I also knew that I did not want anything custom made to be flush with my engagement ring because I like for the two rings to look separate. Ryan just wanted something "manly."
Here is what we ended up with:
I got a pave cut 1 carat eternity band, and Ryan got a brushed Titanium band that has a little bit of a shiny edge. I love how mine looks with my engagement ring and I may or may not be wearing it as I type this!
Ryan had a little bit of trouble deciding between titanium and tungsten carbide because he knew he definitely did not want gold or platinum. He doesn't think those are very manly. The sales lady told us that the main difference is that if he should have some type of bizarre accident, the tungsten one could be cut off of his finger and the titanium one could not. I basically decided not to give my opinion on this and sat there wondering what kind of finger-threatening events she was alluding to. Despite her warnings, he ended up with a titanium band because it was his favorite of all of the ones that he tried on.
This was definitely a HUGE check mark on the to-do list since wedding bands are pretty high on the importance list. Another HUGE check mark was finally getting our invitations finished and mailed last Wednesday! I'm going to give it just a couple more days to make sure they are all delivered and then I will be sharing all the details with you! I can't wait to see what you think!
