Yes, I have neglected you. Yes, I feel guilty. Yes, I am sorry.
Now that I've apologized and have fully digested my Thanksgiving meal, I fully intend to get back to writing mode, but here's the thing. Your blogging hostess is almost at the one month mark 'til her big day, and she's starting to panic people. The only thing that can calm her down is crossing things off of her Nuptial To Do list, that and writing in the third person.
I got a major to do knocked off my list in the past week,
choosing and ordering our wedding bands. Not to worry, this isn't just another random wedding post. I am going to turn my to do triumph into a super cool Christmas gift idea to slip into the stocking of that very special dude in your life. Give him jewelry. Give him a ring.
Warning: Do not do this if you just met the guy on Match.com, eHarmony, Plenty of Fish, AshleyMadison, etc. Do not do this if you're casually dating and haven't had the let's be exclusive talk. He will hit the ground running and will never be heard from again.
This stocking stuffer is for the serious couple. Whether you're replacing your hubby's tired old band, giving your college sweetheart a promise ring or getting down on bended knee this Christmas because you're tired of waiting for him to do it, tungsten carbide is my metal of choice.
The truth about tungsten:
- Derives from the Swedish words tung sten, which translates to heavy stone.
- It has a totally cool nickname: wolfram.
- It's hypo allergenic.
- It's like, super strong.
- It's like, super sexy.
- It's like super cheap.
I had my heart set on getting my fiancé an 18k white gold or platinum band, but after a surprisingly honest talk with a surprisingly honest jeweler, it was recommended that we go with a Tungsten Carbide band, made from an affordable alternative metal that is allergy-friendly and more scratch resistant than it's pricier competitors. I had my doubts, but research revealed that tungsten is a mega popular choice amongst today's modern brides and grooms, and once I saw it on my right hand man's left hand, we had to have it.
