Like Beyonce said, "If you like it…"

Engagement Ring, Wedding

“…you should have put a ring on it!” Oh wait he did! : ) Not only am I lucky enough to have such a great engagement ring but now I also have a beautiful wedding band that complements it. Like I previously stated here my journey for the perfect wedding band has been a long one. I wanted to get something that would match with my engagement ring but at a reasonable price. The problem is that platinum is pretty expensive and I’m pretty picky. By now you must know how much I love the Garment District, well since I was in the neighborhood I stopped by at the Jewelry District. They had a great selection for wedding bands but I was still not satisfied with the choices.

Now that you realize how many different places I have looked for my wedding band here it is without further delay I chose my wedding band from Blue Nile. I am completely happy with my purchase and more importantly with the price. Using our Amex we saved 10% and we received free shipping.

Here is how it arrived:



Here is the wedding band by itself on some roses my HBoO gave me.


Here is both my wedding band and my engagement ring together.


Here is another shot. I wish I could take a picture that would demonstrate how shinny both really are.


Okay since I can’t take a professional picture here is my wedding band. Oh and yes it really does look this good in person.

I love my rings and I can’t wait to wear them for the rest of my life. Are you absolutely in love with your rings? How was the process for you?

"It’s my birthday and I cry if I want too…"

Engagement Ring, Wedding

It’s my birthday today and I spent most of my day in the hospital with my dad. Which sounds worse than it really was. My parents came this weekend from out of town to visit me and right before they left my dad began to have chest pain. After doing some testing on his heart and spending the night at the hospital the doctors didn’t find anything wrong with him. Although it was not the best situation to be in I would have to say that overall it was great to spend some time with my both of my parents alone. My mom and I got to sit down and talk about wedding details which made me really happy. One of the things that was unfortunate was that we had to cancel our e-pics session because we had to rush to the hospital. One thing we did accomplish is that we meet with a potential dj tonight.

Nothing else left to say but this is a picture of my engagement ring with the beautiful flowers my FI bought me for my birthday. He is too cute sometimes he got me two dozen peach roses to match our wedding colors. : )

Has life thrown a wrench into your wedding planning like it did in ours?
