This post signifies the start of a few posts about some of the wedding-related surprises I have in store for my beloved. He’s promised not to look, and I guess I can only trust that he won’t.
The first is an engraving for his wedding band. My rings are too thin to be engraved, so this will be our only band to receive an engraving, and it means a lot to me that it is the right one.
I have a few options, each chosen for different reasons:
The following are from some classic Beatles songs:
- All my loving, darling I’ll be true
- P.S. I love you
- I want to hold your hand
One from The Turtles:
- Me and you and you and me
Then, there is this option from our favourite local band, The Dirty Skirts:
- We’ll keep rolling like thunder
I love all these songs, and their words all make me smile ’til it hurts. I have no idea which one to choose. The ring is being made from scratch in white gold and is almost finished, so I have to make a decision soon. I’m leaning towards the last, purely because it’s unlikely that anyone else would have it, and we’re HUGE fans (hmm… maybe if I show them my plans to engrave their song lyric, they’ll come and play pro bono for us at the reception? One can dream).
If you engraved anything in your rings, what did they say? And which quote do you like best from the above?
