We were playing around this morning and my FI tried on his ring (we leave Wednesday) and it's so big it fell off when he barely shook his hand. He's lost 10 pounds since we bought it.

One more thing to add to the to do before we leave...
Good to know, yikes- good thing you caught it before you left!

Can a Tungsten ring be cut off?
Can a Tungsten ring be cut off?
Yes! Please be aware that in any situation where there might be a medical necessity to cut off or remove a tungsten ring--for instance excessive weight gain, hand injury, etc.,--removing a tungsten ring doesnâ€t pose much more of a challenge than cutting through a gold or platinum wedding band. In our own jewelry shop, as in many other jewelry shops, we have a cutting tool designed for cutting titanium and tungsten wedding bands. In addition, tungsten bands can be fractured into pieces using vise-grip pliers. When we contacted our local hospital emergency room and asked if they were equipped to remove tungsten wedding bands in an emergency, they told us that most hospital emergency rooms are prepared to handle almost anything, and assured us that it would be no problem for them.
During our 30 years of jewelry repair experience, we've only seen a dozen or so rings that have been cut off in hospital emergency rooms, and in most of those cases the rings had been bent out-of-round and were putting painful pressure on the finger. Tungsten rings will not crush or bend out-of-round, so if you shut your hand in a car door or drop a heavy object on it, a tungsten wedding band is likely to fracture into several pieces and fall off your finger freely. You might be safer wearing a tungsten ring than a precious metal band! Nonetheless, check with your local jeweler or medical facility if you have concerns.

I did some research on that too. FI & I love Tungsten and I was a littke scared until I found similar info to this...

my FI and i also like unique styles. we have gone to a custom jewelry designer to design my engagement ring (i like vintage style). we are very fortunate that his mother has passed down her wedding band to me, which is also luckily a unique, antique style. so we have decided to go back to the same custom designer to design a matching wedding band for him that is inspired by his mother's wedding band, but of course with a masculine touch.

 

i have a question: in some etiquette guides, it is advised that the bride pay for the wedding band? is this the case, have any of you brides paid for the groom's ring?

 

thanks for all the great tips, i don't know how i could be planning my wedding without this forum = )

You know, to be honest my FI and I live together already so we both pay for everything. But if you two have seperate accounts then I would say yes you should by his wedding band.

Christa- Thanks for the info on the ring. I was concerned about that and didn't want to tell my FI before I had done some research. He would have freaked out! I am so happy to hear that they can cut the material if needed.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
