Wedding Wednesday – Man Bling and My Bling Too


Happy Wednesday everyone! And, Happy 1st day of February! Wow! I remember around the time of my birthday thinking, “Well, when February get’s here, it will really feel like the wedding is just around the corner!”

Now, that we are actually here, it really does feel like in just a few short weeks the wedding will be here!

When Ryan surprised me with my engagement and put that beautiful ring on my finger I also got another little surprise…a matching wedding band.

I love my engagement ring. Three stones with two baguette diamonds on the sides. Being that I hardly EVER wear any jewelry it was a weird feeling having an engagement ring on my finger all the time. I have grown use to it of course and now feel naked without it.


Being that my engagement ring was custom made it would have been virtually impossible to find a wedding band that would match. So, Ryan had the jeweler design a matching wedding band at the same time.

Rings 002

It has multiple smaller stones and two more diamond baguettes to match the engagement ring. I love both of my rings, I love what they symbolize and I can’t wait to wear them both for the rest of my life.

Rings 004

Ryan was a WHOLE lot picker. Yup, Mr. Manly-Man had LOTS of opinions when it came to his ring. In fact, we looked online and in stores (off and on) for almost 3 months.

Finally, when I went to the wedding show in Ottawa there was a vendor there from Kanata who had over 5000 different styles of MENS wedding bands!

Ryan and I went to their store and it was impossible for him not to find something, there were so many choices.

Ryan didn’t want his ring to be gold and no gems. He wanted it to be plain but with a little bit of detail. He wanted it to have a wide band but not too thick. He wanted it to be quite flat against his skin so that it would be harder to get caught on things….Told you, picky! :-)

Finally, he spotted this ring…

Rings 001

We both agreed that this was his ring. He kept saying how much he loved it and how it looks like a car’s air filter? Whatever that is….? ha ha!

I am glad that Ryan put so much effort into picking out his own ring. It is something that he plans on wearing every day and I am glad he has something he (and me too!) loves!

Can’t wait to put that ring on your finger Ry!

Happy Wednesday!



  1. Chris was super picky about his ring as well! Maybe it's a boy thing.

  2. HAHA Jake was super picky about his ring too! :)

    They're both amazing rings, can't wait to see them put to action!!!!!

  3. OMG - love that - like a car air filter!!! They are beautiful rings.

  4. Your ring is gorgeous and his ring is awesome, very manly... LOL :). Mark never takes his off and yells at me if I try to take it off just to clean it :).

  5. Thanks ladies for all of your sweet comments! It must be a man trait that I wasn't aware of about a man being picky about his ring!


  6. excеllent submіt, very informаtive.
    I'm wondering why the other specialists of this sector do not notice this. You must continue your writing. I'm cοnfident, уou

    But, think on thіs, ωhat if you
    ωrote a catchіer post title? I mеan, Ι ԁon't wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title that makes people want more? I mean "Wedding Wednesday - Man Bling and My Bling Too" is a little plain. You should look at Yahoo's
    front pagе аnd watch hοw theу create aгticle headlineѕ to grab
    people to click. You might tгy addіng a vidеο oг a relateԁ
    picture or two to get people eхcitеd about
