    i know, i tried not to laugh either - but is's kind of a cute image to think of a grown man having a panic attack over a ring! but when i thought about it more - i can totally see it. i get a little anxious when i can't get rings off too. be careful he doesn't get it so big that it's always falling off!

    i was going to mention the tatoo thing too - either something like the other girls have mentioned (name, date, etc.) or just a cool design. another option would be to wear the ring on a chain around his neck.

      Thanks girls. We discussed the tattoo thing before but he's not into it. He's worn rings before so it's not impossible - it just have to be big enough!!

        Kate, I'm sorry that happened, but I think it's pretty funny that he's throwing it in your face already. That made me laugh, it sounds like my FH.

        If it makes you feel any better, I got my FH's ring online, and when they sent it to me (last Friday and I leave on Wednesday), they had totally forgotten to engrave it. I was P-I-double S-E-D. I called them and they were like, "oh, well, sorry. Send it back to us after the wedding."

            I'm sorry I had to laugh too. I hope the 8.5 works and doesn't fall off when his hands are cold. maybe you should get it insured? :)

              Poor Brett! It really is awful to get claustrophobic like that. I hope he will feel more comfortable in his new ring. Don't worry he will get used to it, it just takes time.

                OK, I have to confess, that happened to me last night!

                We were in the heat all day and then we flew home and I guess my finger just totally swelled. Plus, my band is thick and it's not smooth inside so it was just not coming off and my finger kept getting more and more swollen.

                THEN, my DH started laughing the more panicky I got. That didn't help. When I said, "I need you to take this seriously and help me" he said, "I can't help it, you're just so CUTE when you get kinda helpless."

                That cute comment really didn't help me - I didn't respond well. I actually took a bit of skin off my knuckle, but finally got it off. UGH - he took responsibility for figuring out how to deal with my ring (maybe hollow it out a bit or something) so that we don't repeat what I'm now calling "the ring incident".

                  It makes me feel better to know he's not the only one - thanks Natasha. He took some skin off too! It didn't help that his ring is titanium and he kept saying "isn't this the ring that can't be cut off?" I had to laugh.

                  The 8.5 should work. He tried on a 9 and it was too big.

                  The only good thing is that the ring was super cheap so if it's too big and he loses it we can just buy another.

                    omg- I can totally relate. I don't freak out, but I figgit (sp??) a lot with my ring. I constantly take it off and put it on. My hands swell with the hear or when I drink. (the night we got engaged, we had some drinks and my ring was sooo tight!) Any hoo, I def feel that way when my hands swell up really bad, I fell like i NEED to take if off ASAP!
