So, first and foremost, I gave up my engagement ring on Sunday because it needs to visit the shop.
I keep looking at my left hand and self-consciously grabbing at it and mostly being weird. I'm sure it's all in my head.
So, question. I'm pretty sure the ring is too big. It's been too big mostly since I put it on my hand, but I have a fear. See all those little diamonds along the edge of the ring? I'm afraid that if I have the ring resized, they will start falling out of their teeny-tiny settings. I've had zero bad luck with the ring so far (KNOCK ON WOOD!), but I feel like it's only a matter of time before I tweak the ring and then mess the whole thing up.
Also, I'm afraid that in a couple of years I may want to get knocked up and then the ring won't fit again and I'll be wishing it was bigger. Anybody had their rings resized twice? Smaller and then larger again? I also think that once I get the band in there, it'll feel tighter cause there will be two rings instead of one.
So, rings. Tell me your stories of fat and skinny and fat fingers. Need to know.
Number 1: anyone ever been a preggo bridesmaid? Did you hate the bride by the wedding day? As in, who the shit cares about your damn veil, I'm growing a human here type drama? Not gonna lie, I'm the bride and I kind of feel this way.
Number 2: did you try to match the style of your dress to the style of the bridesmaids dresses? As in - my dress is very vintage, so my dresses should be too? I'm not really sure what the "style" of my dress is. I can't find many if any pictures of it used in "real" weddings. I've got myself fixated on a style of bridesmaid dresses (Alfred Sung dresses), but I am just totally overwhelmed. Can I lock all the maids in a room and tell them to just figure it out? I'm compassionate that way.
Also, I'm really into this blue color (it's my signature color), but I feel like it's so picky and specific... maybe I should just go with navy or black? Especially since one of the maids may need some last-minute alterations for un petit baby bump.
Engagement ring sizing. Preggo bridesmaids. Bridesmaid dress colors and styles.
All I want is everything. Tell me not to make the same mistakes as you made.
Please and thank you.
