Wedding Wednesday: The SUPER LATE Edition!

We have about 52 minutes left of Wednesday here on the east coast, so I am just sneaking my Wedding Wednesday post in ;).

I have a ring dilemma over here. 

First of all, my beautiful ring is in the "shop." I am super clumsy and hit my hand on stuff all the time, and that caused one of the prongs to loosen a bit. Fortunately, I took my ring to be cleaned before our engagement pictures and the lady noticed when she inspected it. Right now I am sporting some b-e-a-utiful fake bling from Belk.

Now, the real issue. Once we started looking at rings, I fell in love with the split-shank setting. I didn't have any thought to wedding bands. FAIL. Although I LOVE my ring and I wouldn't pick anything else, finding a wedding band is not a simple task at this point.

I don't have a picture of it, but the top and bottom of my ring almost have an "Eiffel Tower" look to them with raised circles of gold with diamonds in them. You can see it on the right side of my hand in the picture above. This means I will never get my rings sautered, which is fine with me; but, it also makes it difficult to find a band that both matches and sits flush.

People have told me I don't need a wedding band - but I want one, silly as it is! It means something to me, and I want to have that ring exchange during our ceremony. 

I have done some research, and I think I am going to have to go back to the jeweler that designed my ring and see if he can design something that will match and fit well. I also want something I can wear alone if I want to take my engagement ring off (like at the beach). 

I have thought about a solid white gold band, but I think that will look goofy with my ring, and I think if I end up with an infinity band (what I am leaning towards) it needs to almost match the bands on my engagement ring!

Any suggestions, friends?

(P.S. I know this sounds totally absurd, and obviously I am happy just to be getting married to my best friend! But, this is something that has been weighing on my mind and I want to record it/see if anyone else has a similar situation!)

Happy (almost gone) Wednesday!

I feel ya, girl! I LOVE my ring, too, but finding a matching wedding band is quite the task! My ring is a family heirloom, which is super amazing and I love it, but I've been told I don't need one, either, since there's so much going on. I'm thinking, though, that I might just get a very simple, thin and plain platinum band to match my platinum engagement ring. If a diamond or ten happen to be on it, so be it ;)

But seriously, do whatcha gotta do! You're the one wearing the bands and looking at them for the rest of your life! I think going to the jeweler for some professional advice is a good way to go. Good luck!

Thats a great question!! I would def talk to the designer! I think a simple infinity band that would curve like your ring now would be just perfect!
