Rob and I bought our wedding bands many months ago. His they ordered in the right size and mine they gave me the size 7 from the store and told me to bring it back and have it sized as we got closer to the wedding. We took them home and put them in the safe to, well, keep them safe. Since then I have had this nagging feeling that the ring I choose didn't sit right with my engagement ring. My engagement ring is a (almost) 1 carat princess cut solitaire in a plain white gold setting. The wedding band I picked out is this:
Or very similar to it.
ANYWAY, I wasn't sure that they sat well together since the band is 3 sided and it didn't seem to sit flush against the engagement ring. Last night I went back to the store to look again and make sure the band is the one I want to wear for the next 50 years or so. After 45 minutes of trying on every wedding band and feeling the same way about them all the salesman decided it was, in fact, because the ring didn't fit. He offered to order me the right size assuring me I would love it. I am SOOOO glad I mentioned that I had the size 7 in my posession and needed to bring it in to be re-sized. Turns out, this ring can't be re-sized more than a half a size and I need it a size and a half smaller. This would not be a problem BUT if they order it now it is expected back to them on October 21st.
Let's recap for a minute -
MY WEDDING IS THE NEXT DAY!!!
This is NOT a timeline I am comfortable with at all! The idiot who sold me the ring should never have let me leave the store with it - she should have ordered me the right size!
The solution is that they will put a rush on the ring and if it isn't in by 2 weeks before the wedding they will re-size the store ring (but it will still be too big) and let me have that until my ring is available. I guess that is okay, but I really want to bind my marriage vows with the ring I am going to wear for eternity, you know?!?!
I suppose if this is the only drama I have encountered so far in the wedding planning process I really shouldn't complain.....
