My confession.......

 

I don't like my engagement ring and it is not my style. I also don't have the heart to tell FI because he had it specially made. It is a great thought, but I DO NOT like it!!!! :-(

 

What a relief to finally say that.....I've been pretending since March!!!!

I hear you on that, and I got to choose my ring. It just didn't turn out as I had thought it would... so I might make some changes to it later on.

I also confess that I did not enjoy my wedding experience. I want to do it all over again keeping it a destination wed. still but only have my immediate friends/family. There ended up being so much drama from certain people who came down and really ruined the night. That and I felt really sick all night so I didn't enjoy myself from that as well.

I hate most of our pictures too and how I look in them. I have said this to my DH and told him I want to do it again, just another symbolic/vow renewal, just a relaxed atmosphere where we can have fun. Maybe for our first anniversary??

I feel the same way. Only I designed my ring, but he definitely missed a few details. Im thinking I might change a few things later on. Its been growing on me so I havent been thinking about it lately. Hes crazy about the ring so it makes me happy that hes so proud of it. :)

Tam, I am sorry that you really didn't enjoy your experience. I can only imagine how it feels to do all of that planning to only have it minimized by others actions and attendance. :-( hug2.gif I feel your pain because although we are still 11 months out, there are people that have received our STD that I now wish we had not invited. I am even contemplating right now how to rescind an invite (STD) to one of my friends/associates. She is a drama queen and her actions at my birthday party 2 weeks ago showed her true colors and I cannot see dealing with her for 3 days straight in a foreign country. I think you have a great idea to do it all again in an intimate ceremony with just the two of you all over again! I think that will be wonderful and will mean even more to you because it will be just the two of you confirming what you believed in all along.......your love.

We looked at photos together and he took a combination of all of them and made one ring. He made it out of love and he is VERY proud of it! But in my opinion it is too busy and looks like a ghetto mess. Everytime someone compliments me on it, I feel embarrased and just kind of shy away from the topic. He is my best friend, I just can't figure out how to be honest enough with him enough to move on to another ring. He has a whole bunch of faith in his jeweler and I personally am not crazy about his work. I'm a simple girl and the ring is not a true reflection of my personality. I guess I'm just saying/venting all this to say.......I do not have the heart to be honest with my best friend to say I want a different ring.

I think there are more women who are frustrated about their wedding experience then they want to admit. That's not how it's supposed to be, its supposed to be the happiest day of your life and if it's not then you don't feel right.
The other night I let myself feel sorry for myself for a little bit and feel that heartbreaking feeling that I had spent so much time on this wedding and I didn't enjoy it. After that I am still kind of bummed but I'm able to remember some of the good things and know that we have the rest of our lives together so we have plenty of time to have some other type of vow renewal/anniversary celebration that we can truly make about just me and him and whoever wants to come can but we won't stress or make it about anyone else than us. I've come to realize that our wedding just wasn't really our style. We're really more laid back and that's how the wedding started out but not what it became when we factored family politics into it.
