It's been ages since I've updated my thread! I don't have too many updates but some are better than none right? It's not like the date is coming up close or anything!!
In Aug I decided to start a new business alongside my current job and it's just been kinda crazy ever since. I often think I'm nuts for deciding to do this with an already hectic work life on top of planning this wedding in less than 4 months!! I keep reminding myself that this opportunity came to me for a reason and it will all work out like it should...hopefully!
anyway back to the updates...
I have been eyeing a couple of different wedding bands for a while. I wanted something a bit contrasting to my engagement ring but that still complimented it. I can't remember if I've posted this (I think I might have...it's been that long since I've posted on my thread) of the rings I had my eye on.
I was leaning more towards the ring on the right but in white gold. I loved the shape but didn't love the beading around the edges.
We decided to go back to the jeweller that Sean got my engagement ring from. I loved being able to see the place, Sean's been telling me stories of this place since we got engaged so it was cool to finally see it. It was quite the operation to get in with a buzzer and double doored system! I showed the jeweller the rings I liked and she said she knew the perfect ring. I put it on and immediately loved it. I tried a bunch of other rings on too but this one was it right from the start. I kept going back to it and putting it on. It was also the perfect size which is saying something because my fingers are kinda chubby lol!
Sean looked at me and said "why are you still trying other rings on, you clearly love the first one - it's the one." I knew he was right, I looked at the price tag and nearly fainted because it was WAAAY out of budget. We gently asked what the price was and thankfully the price tag was NOT the actual price they were selling it for and it was a lot less and exactly within our budget. Gotta love going to an independent jeweller!
This is my wedding band and engagement ring together:
I also found really thin bands with diamonds on it that I also really liked and they looked beautiful on top and underneath my engagement ring. Sean and I talked about maybe for a 5 year anniversary we'll switch it up and get the two stackable bands to wear with my engagement ring and then I'll wear my wedding band on my right hand as it looks good on its own too!
Sean and I have also been working on finalizing both of our ceremony scripts (legal and symbolic). I'm still trying to sort out our witnesses for our legal ceremony. I'd love to have my mom there but Sean's parents can't be there for the legal ceremony and I think my future MIL would be very sad if she couldn't be there but my mom could. We decided to go with my cousin and her husband who can't make it to Mexico because she's having a baby in Nov but the problem is our legal ceremony is schedule for the week after her due date. gah! I'm trying to move things around but even so we're not sure how long her recovery is going to take so it might just be easier to get other witnesses to be there.
The big thing coming up is the BDR (Brides Dress Rehearsal aka site visit) to Azul Fives at the end of Sept. I can't tell you how much Sean and I are looking forward to this!!! I'm excited to be able to finally see the resort in person but I'm more excited to just have a couple of days off just with Sean. We haven't taken a proper vacation just the two of us in a year and a half! With everything going on work wise I really need this break even if it is only for a couple of days!
I imagine things will be kicked into high gear as soon as we return from the BDR as we'll really get a sense of what needs to get done and how to make it all work!
