I hate to even tell you this but that happened to my
BMs sister in law. Fire at a store in Calgary last year. Thankfully they got hers out in time but it smelled of smoke. Was 2 weeks before the wedding :(. Chances are slim though.

Mine hung in my bedroom. Had it on about 5 times from June ish to October when the seamstress took it.

Loved having it to remind me why I chose it or try it on to feel like a princess (or make sure it fit lol) honestly didn't try it on near as much as I thought I would. As it takes effort and help!

Wedding bands:

 

So we've picked up our wedding bands :) When we initially got engaged, my coworker told me that I should go to his jeweler since was reputable and would be cheaper since he is a wholesale jeweler. Plus, I knew that a custom wedding band would be the best route for me since my fingers are so small (size 3.5) and it would be too hard to find something in store that would line up perfectly with my e-ring. With the advice of our jeweler, I actually ended up with an eternity band, that way I wouldn't have to worry about lining up the diamonds (I didn't want to solder them together). So this is what my rings look like together

As for Derrick's ring, he surprisingly decided to design his own custom ring. I was shocked since he's always said he wanted a "wedding watch" instead of a ring. But as we talked to our jeweler and he looked at men's wedding bands, he decided to design his own. He researched different looks and ended up designing a rose gold band, with a band of white gold in the middle, then a row of three diamonds perpendicular to the band. It looks gorgeous and he's so excited to wear it. He tried it on and he now says it's too tight (I think he's just not used to wearing rings). Good thing we didn't buy tungsten, at least if it is tight, we can resize it!

@calgarybride2015 thank you so much! I love how both rings turned out and I can't wait till we get to wear them. Our jeweler was very good at giving us valuable tips and advice when designing our rings.

And I agree about the effort in trying o your wedding dress. That's what has prevented me from trying it on this whole time lol

@Wafflesmom wow! I love both! I also love that he surprised you with his decision to go the traditional route with a ring and then to go all out and design his own.

@calgarybride2015 that poor bride! This story makes me want to get out of bed and drive to the store to pick up my dress right now lol

Thanks @ashhtayy! I was surprised that he turned down a watch and then turned around and put so much effort into his wedding band. The jeweller even inticed him with a rolex and he still chose the wedding band! Since the design was a little more intricate, his ring was pricier. But it was well worth it!

Thanks @yycbride2016 I wish we could wear them already instead of them just sitting in the safe.

@perianjay I know, Der really shocked me when he came up with that design. He was initially going to go with black diamonds but he went with white to match my rings. I tried on an alternating pink Sapphire and white Diamond band but it didn't look good with my e-ring. And yup, everyone laughs when they see my ring size. It even fits my nephew's fingers (he's 9 by the way) lol

@Wafflesmom haha! omg that's so cute. I always feel like I have sausage fingers.. my ring size is 5.5 and my ring spins a lot, but i'm not even complaining haha. I heard a story of a girl who complained her ring spun too much and her fiance said "ok. we'll just downgrade your diamond" haha
