We have somehow managed to be quite the procrastinators in several areas of wedding planning, and our ring design was one of them. You may recall that Mr. Narwhal went down the custom path with the design of my moissanite branch engagement ring last summer from Danielle Goulet Jewelry Design. There was no question that when it came time for a wedding band that my ring would be made by Dee again.
The part that we were unsure about for a while was whether or not Mr. Narwhal would have a ring. From the beginning he has voiced that he didn’t want a ring, and particularly noted that he can’t wear one at work. While the idea of him not wearing a ring bummed me out initially, once we decided to go down another route for our ceremony I was completely OK with his decision. My parents have been married for 35 years, and my dad has never worn his ring. With the whole “With this ring I thee wed…” business out of the way, I was open to Mr. Narwhal exploring whatever option he felt comfortable with. I did, however, sentimentally note that there is just something about a guy wearing a wedding ring that warms my heart.
