    Our legal day is tomorrow! Wahoo! I'm excited and a little nervous. FI and I were discussing it last night and agree that it's the type of feeling you get before you do something fun and new for the first time. I can't wait.

    I'm a little bummed out because I don't have my ring. We went to Colorado last weekend for my bridal shower. Our jeweler is there so my little bro picked up my wedding band so that I could try it on to make sure it fit and everything. Well it turns out that the jeweler wanted to give us a good deal so he used diamonds from another ring in my band. It was very pretty but it was obviously more narrow than my engagement ring and definitely didn't look like a set. I was a little disappointed but could have lived with it. FI on the other hand was mad. He said there was no way we were keeping it. In order to make sure the wedding band matches up with the engagement band, I had to leave them both in Colorado. It sucks that I won't be wearing either ring tomorrow but probably won't be the end of there world.

    I was wondering what you guys wore to your legal days. I know Andi wore a cute little white dress, but she was in Vegas. I'm going to be at a rundown courthouse in San Jose. I do want to look nice and wear something fun; I'm just not sure what. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for listening!

      Congrats on your legal day!! Your wedding's right around the corner!! How about wearing a cute white sundress? I don't know how tall you are, but maxi dresses (those that go all the way to the floor) are pretty "in" right now, and they can look sexy without looking too cheap. Plus, they're super comfy. I've seen lots of whites and lighter colored pastels this season in stores. Or, what are your wedding accent colors? A pretty sundress that coordinates with your colors could be cute...plus you could wear it again on your honeymoon:) You could always throw a pretty flower in your hair to add a tropical feel to your attire. Good luck!
      Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end.

        Here's some pictures from our legal day...Had to wear a jacket
        I don't have my band yet either...I'm saving it for the symbolic ceremony since a lot of people don't know we actually tied the know yet.

          awww man that sucks about the ring....i am sure it will come back though just the way you really want it!

          you know what you could do...just for fun (since tomorrow is not your "real" wedding anyway) is go find the the most tacky cheap ring you can and wear that! that would be fun...can you imagine wearing like a cheap, awful, huge, gaudy thing?! Just a thought it would be a good story later!

          as far as outfits...maybe like a cute pants suit type outfit...business casual something or other? or a cute summer dress? that would be fun too!

          Make sure you post some pics tomorrow! GOOD LUCK!

            I love this. I'm going to try and get one this afternoon. You're right, that would be funny!

              I agree...check out some maxi dresses. Seems like almost everywhere has them, from Old Navy to Gordman's, even stores like J.C. Penney and Walmart.

              Somethin simple, but spring-like and beautiful..you'll look great and they are so perfect for occasions like this. Even just a nice, flowing sundress. I'm sure you'll find something you like.

              And congratulations!! You've gotta be so excited!

                I think it's ok that you don't have your ring. I'm not sure if your wedding is a "secret" but it would kinda suck putting it on then having to take it off. The best thing about putting the wedding ring on is knowing that it stays there- forever! I didn't use a ring to get married- it's not big deal. Just tell them before hand that you aren't exchanging rings and they can easily cut that out.

                Or you could do some fake ring like Andi suggested. That would be cute too.

                I wore jeans and a top for my legal day. We didn't want to make a big deal out of it. Plus we got married in a vegas drive thru sooo....yeah. :)

                  CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR LEGAL DAY.You should try and get a ring as cheaply as you can make that your challenge and have fun with it and you do know we will want pictures.Im sure youll be glad later that you didnt get THE rings until your dw day.I say go with the maxi dress tooo youll wear it loads afterwards and you could because they are so easy to wear get it out every anniversary and it will still fit and hold wonderful memories,just remember the piccies xxx

                    I wouldn't worry about not having your ring! That way you won't have to take it off after...and when you get put it on at your DW it will be the first time, making it more speical!

                      Congrats on your Legal Day! Have fun! I don't think the ring is important.
