Our Wedding – We Found My Wedding Band!!!
Can you believe our wedding is less than 8 months away? Woo hoo! I am so excited (can you tell – just a little bit)? We are slowly preparing for our wedding – with Wedding Cruise reservations, Save the Dates, Invitations, Wedding Ring shopping and more! I love it – especially since it’s leading up to the day when I marry my best friend and become Mrs. Shannon Gurnee!
I am so in love with the engagement ring that Frank bought me. It looks absolutely beautiful on my hand and I can’t help but admire it with a smile from time to time (probably more frequently than I care to admit – hee hee). At first I wasn’t sure I wanted a wedding band because I was happy enough with the single ring itself. However, after browsing the jewelry store on one of our cruises, I fell in love with the idea of having a wedding band to go with my engagement ring. I found one I really liked, but it was around $500 (normally almost $1000). We decided to wait (more my decision than his) and look at the jewelry stores when we got home.
About a week after returning from our cruise, Frank and I visited one of our local jewelry stores and found a similar ring, but it was still so expensive. Now you should understand – I’m not a cheapskate, but there is no way I wanted to spend $1000 on my wedding band! So we found the style I liked and started to for it on Amazon.com.
One of our favorite websites to shop on is Amazon.com. There is so much you can find and buy on there! From books to movies to toys to jewelry! Yes, I said jewelry people! We found the wedding band style I fell in love with and only paid $229! Can you believe it? They look gorgeous together! We’ll be soldering them together before the wedding and then I’ll get to wear them on our wedding day and from that point on! Woo hoo!
