Wedding Wishes 
10:57pm 12/01/2011
  Hi there,

My name is El, I'm 27 and a bride-to-be. I'm also a web developer and in the process of setting up a wedding community website called "Wedding Wishes" at http://www.weddingwishes.co

I'm looking to get the ball rolling and encourage some communication on the forums before I actually launch the site, and as such, I'd love to invite the community to join for free and even receive a couple of freebies I picked up while doing some marketing for work. There's a fantastic ebook worth $40 that you can download for free that claims to save you thousands. Not sure how accurate that is in practice, but I've read it and it is actually really good... and really very free!

Anyway, I'd love to see all of you over at Wedding Wishes to claim your membership and free goodies. Feel free to add my personal journal or message me if you have any questions or need a hand.

I apologise if some of you got caught in a cross-post or if this isn't an appropriate intro. Mods - please delete this message if you feel it lacks value to the community.

Wonderful to meet you all,
Hi all

  I've been on this community for a while, and I love looking at all your gorgeous rings. Now I can finally join as we got engaged about 2 weeks ago. My fiance Mike proposed without a ring while we were on a weekend break in Chester, UK. The next day we chose a ring together...

...and this was the one ♥Collapse )

  Here is my ring, I love it! It's white gold, with a brilliant cut round center stone and pave set side stones. I've had it since getting engaged in Feb and I still love it!




I'm excited to have found this community, I love showing my ring and seeing everyone else's! Fun fun.

I joined the Engaged Woman Club!

mood: excited

Well, the boyfriend decided to promote himself to fiance on Christmas Day night (around 11 PM, or so, I suppose).  Apparently, he spotted a ring he thought was the most perfect ring he'd seen the entire time he was ring hunting, asked if they could possibly set an oval in it, thought about it for a few days, and then went back and got it!  He had planned on waiting until around June to pop the question, but that ring was just burning a hole in his pocket, and he said that he couldn't convince himself to wait any longer as there was no real great reason to.

The FIANCE has great taste!Collapse )

1) How often do you clean your engagement ring?

2) What do you use? Wipes/liquid/what is the "dipping basket" those liquids refer to?

3) Do you wear your ring in the shower? I take mine off when I shower and it kind of offends my fiance. It's a diamond with a white gold band. I know the diamond obviously won't get ruined but I'm worried about the white gold in hot water + soap. Am I just being weird or does everybody take them off in the shower/at the beach?

soooooo this could be it!

mood: curious
so long story  short, and really exciting story!!!
i found out that i inherit a diamond from my moms first wedding set that i had no idea i inherited
she said if i would like i can have it early, give it to my man, and he can get it set if he wants
it would mean so much to me to have my moms diamond in a ring
i told him and he seems for the idea! i think he is just in shock though lol he was kinda speechless
i was looking at settings to go with a pear shape, not my ideal cut and its hard to match stuff with it
we came up with this
he wants me to move in after we get it, i dunno how my family is gonna take that
im really worried about that aspect
but finally this solves our money issue!
comments/ ideas?

i didnt want to be involved, i didnt even want to be able to see it before, but it just went that way
but im still really excited!! *squee*  i think i wanna buy him an engagement ring too, is that weird?

My engagement story and ring 
10:05am 04/02/2008
mood: cheerful
My fiance and I were engaged at the top of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, England on March 13, 2007. I can hardly believe that it has been nearly a year!

So here are the photos of the ring (finally!). The center diamond is .6 carats and was inherited from my grandmother, so it is very special to me that I have a family heirloom as part of my engagement ring. It is set in platinum with pave set diamonds flanking it on the band. The wedding band will also be platinum with matching pave set diamonds. Because the center stone was a family heirloom, I really wanted something that had an antique feel, but not over the top. I think it worked out pretty well. I am completely in love with it and can't believe that I am so lucky to be marrying my wonderful fiance!


I love reading everyone's posts and gawking at rings. I think it is so interesting to see all of the different styles that are out there! Congrats to all of you, ladies!!

I think the subject says it all! I need help ladies.

here's my dilemma:Collapse )

soo basically I was wondering if any of you would be so kind as to give me a little information about your rings, or what the average engagement ring is like. how much it cost you would be MOST helpful but I know that can be a personal question so I understand if you don't want to share that. I really don't want to walk up to the jewelry counter and pick out some thousand dollar ring only to embarrass my soldier's salary boyfriend haha.

thank you & congratulations to all of you!

Pictures of my ring!

My boyfriend fiance proposed to me in between Christmas and New Year's.  We were visiting my parents in Florida, and he drove me to my favorite beach to watch the sunset.  When we got close to the beach, we found it enveloped in fog, with no sunset to speak of.  We took it well, and decided it created added privacy for us, because we couldn't see more than a 100 feet in any direction!  We had wine and cheese and chatted and enjoyed the sound of the water, until he started his speech, and dropped down on one knee in the sand.  He got me to say yes before he showed me the best ring imaginable...

Enjoy!  (I have been!)

    If this isn't okay to post, please delete it. I didn't see anything against it in the info page.

I created a community for September 2008 Weddings because the only one I found wasn't active. I'd really like to get it jumpstarted and lively. So, if you are getting married in September '08, please join :) 0908weddings

New ring... 
02:54pm 04/09/2007
mood: loved
My fiance and I have come to an agreement. He purchased a bridal set a year ago that was very small, and is pictured in my icon.

I wanted a larger diamond, so he said a limit of $2,000. Lucky for me, I found a Tiffany Setting white gold ring with a .5 carat diamond, G-H colour and PI-2 (I think) Inclusion.

The ring is on special from $2,499 down to $1,799. It looks like.. http://www.tiffany.com/Expertise/Diamond/rings/engagement_tiffany.aspx but obviously isn't a Tiffany & Co ring :)

And, the valuation comes in at $3,550. So we paid just over half value price :D (All dollar amounts are in AUD (Australian).

I'm waiting for it to be resized from a K down to an I (Australian sizing), and it should be ready on about the 28th.

I'm so excited, its so perfect for my tiny hands! :D We are using the 'wedding' band from the bridal set pictured :)

New engagement ring and wedding bands. 
11:43pm 02/09/2007
mood: impressed
 We went and picked up the rings today. Early which is super exciting. I can't believe I have this big ol' rock on my finger now instead of the temp ring. It makes the temp ring look "wimpy wimpy wimpy". But I still love it, haha. Brian's ring looks more amazing every time I look at it. 

Wedding Bands for Grooms..

mood: amused
I am wondering what type of band you have got for your husbands. What material, colour, engravings ,width.

Do you also have photos?

I'm wondering what to get for my own Groom. :)

I like the idea of a double groove at one side, in a titanium/stainless steel metal. I want something that is long lasting and scratch resistant-ish :)
