When I was growing up I heard a lot about not coveting my neighbor's wife. Well, I don't know my neighbors and as far as I can tell, I'm straight. But coveting diamond rings, now that, I should have been taught about.
Since I've found my dress and I can't find a reception hall from my desk, I've been spending all my time trying to find a wedding band. When I first got engaged, I thought I would get just a simple, plain white gold thin band.
As Lucifer himself would have it, though, Collin and I stumbled upon a quaint jewelry shop in Kentucky where I tried on a diamond wedding band that had 1/2 carat of diamonds in it and it was only $250! The problem with that was, I didn't like how it fit next to my engagment ring. Collin said he wanted me to have a band with diamonds in it because he saw Kristin Layton's and loved how it sparkled.
The problem with this is wherever we go in Birmingham, the prices of these bands are a little more steep. Also, to get one custom made to go perfectly with my ring would be over $1,000.
I did find a nice little narrow white gold band for $100.
I'm so sick of looking for things. I start out thinking small and simple, then someone always says, what about this...then, it's too expensive, and I end up getting disappointed.
Also, jewelery store workers can be mean, but then again, they can be nice. Usually when I'm with Collin, they're nice. Today, when I went to Fincher and Osmand, they were rude.
I love my ring. I just want to get married. None of this other stuff matters...
WEDDING UPDATE: Currently I'm deciding between having the reception at the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham or the Bessemer Stake Center. Hopefully a decision will be made Saturday.
