Band of Gold...

JEGs and I bought our wedding rings over the weekend.

Now it feels really official. And kinda weird.

I guess before I had been planning a wedding without really thinking of the consequences- yeah yeah, there was going to be a wedding in 17Osome days- but until we bought those rings it didn't really occur to me that it was going to be my wedding. To JEGs. I am going to be his wife, and he is going to be my hubs. Whoa.

I know it sounds like I am freaking out, but I promise you I am not about to jump ship-- I will be skipping walking down the aisle on July 17th. However the gravity of this situation is starting to sink in, and it still amazes me that I am getting married.

Anyway, you want to see the goods, right? Well I'm here to show you.

JEGs first. He picked out a simple Tungsten band.
He went with Tungsten because it is very durable, and he didn't want to totally wreck the band while he is wrenching on his cars. We looked at other designs, and even found a ring that kinda looked like a lugnut, but I didn't trust him that he wouldn't try to use it in a pinch. He's very McGuyver like that.

My band is white gold with a rope-like detail from Gabriel & CO.
I didn't go with diamonds because I always felt like diamonds should be for an anniversary. Also, I am so madly in love with my engagement ring, I feel like diamonds would take away from the ring.

My ring had to be ordered so I don't have a picture of the set together yet. It should be in sometime this week. Hopefully.

Sooo.. 173 days left. I've got a lot left to do!

Always & Forever,
the future Mrs. JEGs.

awww....I remember getting our bands. I have a funny story though. We went to Tiffanys because Clint liked a band there. It was sterling silver. The sales woman wouldn't sell us the band because she said it wasn't a wedding band. She told us wedding bands were up in the front of the store...the real expensive stuff that was not in our range. Needless to say, we ended up at Macys and found him a better band!

Love how classic and simple both are. Flashy ones are over rated
