I really like the ring. I know he does too. The most important thing is that he likes it and feels comfortable wearing it. I think it’s going to take him a little while to get used to wearing a ring on his hand but he likes it and is excited for sure. I cannot wait to see him wear it all the time.
Now about my ring. We went back to the jewelry store where he had my engagement ring made. I wanted something very similar to the band that goes around my ring. My ring is in a channel setting with diamonds all around it. I kept looking around and couldn’t find anything that would match. It didn’t need to be identical but I wanted it pretty close. Luckily, at the jewelry store, he said he could create a band to match my engagement ring band perfectly. After he said that, I knew that was what I wanted.
I also got the inside of the ring engraved. It says “AAF.” That translates to Always And Forever. Mike and I have been saying that to each other ever since we first said, “I love you.” So I knew I had to have it engraved in my ring. We wanted it engraved in Mike’s ring but we need to find somewhere that does engraving with a laser for Tungsten. The only way that you can engrave Tungsten is with a laser. So we are hoping to do that once we get back from our honeymoon. If we don’t, it’s not a big deal. At least mine has the engraving inside. It makes it that more special to me.
My wedding band (sorry for the blurry picture)
Both rings together
Closer look at both rings together
I am extremely happy with how my band turned out! The band is really light so it doesn’t feel weird to wear 2 bands on one hand. I’m sure I’ll have to get used to writing and typing with it though because it might be a little bit more bulky but I don’t think it will take long to get used to. It won’t be long before we are wearing them!
We are actually getting our marriage license on Friday! So we will technically be married on Friday. I told Mike that we should wear them around the house together since we will be married. We are planning to have a nice day on Friday. We will get our marriage license, stop at our wedding venue to pick something up that I need, and pick out our menu for our rehearsal dinner. Then we are planning on cooking dinner together and finally having a bottle of fancy champagne that I have been saving for over a year now. We will probably watch a movie together too. I cannot wait to just relax and spend time with him. I’m looking forward to a stress-free night.
Do you know what kind of wedding band you would want? Or what type of band you have? Do you want you and your husband to match or will they be different? Will you wear your wedding band on the same hand as your engagement ring?
