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.
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.
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…
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!
