Choosing our Wedding Bands (with a little help from Cupid!)

Hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine’s Day with their hunnies! Joe and I enjoyed an amazing day full of mini-dates and then topped the day off with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, but what really made this holiday complete was that we shopped for our wedding bands!
Originally we had planned on buying each other’s rings secretively, but we wanted to make sure the other person got something they absolutely love. After all, wearing one piece of jewelry on your hand for the rest of your life sounds like a pretty big commitment in itself! We won’t be able to make the long drive south to revisit the private jeweler he purchased my engagement ring from, but we figured it shouldn’t be too much of a problem to find a matching band from a national jewelry retailer. So we headed to Tampa’s largest mall, International Plaza, and made our way into several different stores in high hopes of finding just the right ring. And sure enough, we eventually found the perfect match! As for Joe’s ring… well, he is just as picky as I am when it comes to jewelry (seeing as how neither of us ever wear any of it anyway) so it took some deeper digging to find a suitable band for him. But once we found it, he knew it was ‘the one’!

Although we’ve got plenty of time before we actually need the bands, I love that we got a head start and can check one more task off of the to-do list. How far in advance are you selecting your bands? Are you shopping for them together or making it a surprise on the wedding day?
