I think this classifies as a big thing, so I’ll start with it: I gave my engagement ring to a complete stranger yesterday!
Cal with Goldmark Jewelry is going to make a custom ring using a ring design I found on the Internet. He’s going to try to use the band on the original in the new design!
It’s quite strange not to have the ring on and that’s weird because I’ve only been wearing it two months. Jeff thinks that’s silly – maybe it is, but I’ll be very glad when I have it back.
Save the Date Magnets / Cards:
Jeff and I took this morning to assemble the save the date magnets and enclosure cards. I know it’s time for a manicure: my nails are so long that Jeff had less of a hard time putting the magnets on the cards!
We went with a simple, red, black and white design of roses from MagnetStreetWeddings.com. It was really easy to design and the price was good – not the best, but fair. They were sent just days after I designed the proof online! Below is the version after my ancient scanner got involved:
We got them from Lotus Flower, an online eBay store. Included with the jars were personalized stickers with an image (we chose a wedding cake), our first names, and “Thank You.”
The other favor will be coming soon – I have to figure out how long it takes to grow.
Okay, we’re battling with this one. As stated in an earlier post, weddings are bloody expensive and because of that, we’ve had to decide which things we were willing to move on and which things we would spend what was needed. Centerpieces for the wine cellar did not make the latter list.
