I’ve Been Cheating

While Champ was away at a Super Bowl party, I was doing our programs and… um… wearing my wedding ring. :)

Champ has been so serious about the wedding rings, he insisted that I not pick them up any sooner than they really needed to be, so they’ve been sitting at the jeweler for a few months. Well the time has come, and I picked them up just in time for a little trial run.

Mine is an eternity band with diamonds similar to the side stones on my engagement ring. His has a little bling too—it’s a platinum band with a “satin finish” (whatever that means) and princess cut diamonds. Champ says it makes him feel like a diva—he pranced around the house saying, “I’m Whitney Houston, bi@%ch.” He’d kill me if he knew I told you that—good thing he doesn’t read Weddingbee. :)

I wanted to see what my ring would look like in an everyday setting, so I “casually” brushed back my hair to get an idea. Don’t you ever wonder if your ring looks different to other people than to you? I do.

So I had fun cheating a little, but it’s not going to be nearly as much fun as exchanging rings and vows with my future diva. ;)

Anyone else cheat a little when he’s not around?!

    I couldn’t bring myself to cheat! I did once just to take photos for my blog, but I put it right back afterwards! I don’t blame you, though! Yours is gorgeous!

    You’re too cute Miss Champ. My ring was custom and came from the family jeweler in NYC. When I unpacked it, I did a big silly happy dance.

    My husbands ring looks just like your FI’s ring but without the stones. He refused diamonds….better for me because it was of course MUCH cheaper.

    We both cheated for a day, the day we got them. We told each other we’d just wear then for the day and then put them in the closet with the rest of our growing wedding supplies. It was really exciting! I can’t wait until we can wear them for real :)

    You are so cute. I don’t think I’ll be cheating with mine. A) We haven’t ordered it yet (I know — 50 days and counting), and B) mine’s a plain band, so it’s not too exciting.

    Mine’s a set, so I’ll have it right away. I have no idea HOW it can stay in the box for over a year…. (It will get lonely! I’ll HAVE to take it out ‘for visits’. LOL.)

    I did too! But then our jeweler told us that in Ireland it’s back luck (he’s Irish) to wear it before the wedding day. So even so I’d looooove to wear it more I try to refrain.

    Mr. Latte is holding onto my wedding band for this exact reason!!! But I would be wearing it every day if it were in my possession…

    Nice bling!! Very pretty. I have my wedding band sitting in the top drawer of my nightstand. I just took it out last week and wore it around for awhile. Shhh… :)

    Yes, I wonder if it looks different to other people. And yes I cheated (wore it home from the jewelers… and tried it on several times afterwards).

    Yours looks lovely… but we need a close-up, Champs!

    We kept mine in the nightstand so just about every night before I went to bed I wore it for few minutes. I couldn’t wait!

    I always wonder what my rings look like to other people- I stare at my hand kind of often (and so does DH- he’s very proud of himself) and sometimes stare in the mirror to get a different view.

    BTW- Your rings are Bootiful!

    @Mrs. Leopard: I always wonder if I’ll wear mine to bed. I feel like I might not, but we’ll see. @CJ2009: he’s loving the whitney houston saying these days- such a diva;)

    I’m Whitney Houston biotch! – Too funny, makes me think of something my guy would say.
    The ring is very pretty!
