MFT Day 25: lifelong commitment
I also promise that this won't become a blog all about my wedding and planning it. I plan on getting my craft on, so if I come up with cool projects, I'll share them here.
But here's a minor savoring the moment moment: I'll discuss the pretty ring. I always knew I wanted a cushion cut, because I like how it looks so old-timey. Like something Lady Mary would receive from dear old Cousin Matthew. And I knew I wanted something with visual interest. Ricky (with the help of his dad) found a nice ring, and he picked out the band himself. It's a palladium band with neat scrolls. It looks old timey but it's all mine.
The box is actually the ring box Ricky's dad gave Ricky's mum her engagement ring in, so I like the familial element to it. Another friend who has offered to make our bands if we want gave us an antique ring box, so I have a feeling at our wedding, we'll use both.
