I know, I know. I've really been slacking on the wedding updates! When you're planning a wedding from thousands of miles away, sharing visual pieces is a tad tricky...but, now that we're back in California, we'll cross off a few more "to dos" and by next week we'll have met all of our vendors face to face!
But, I haven't been totally slacking. I swear. Before getting engaged, I dreamed of a vintage engagement ring...Gabe was a tad nervous about that, so he wisely had my ring custom made. But after seeing the price for a matching diamond eternity band, I knew it just wasn't in the budget. And I really didn't need more diamonds. (Wait. Did I just say that?)
Why not get my "vintage" kick in with the wedding band, though? A few days before Christmas I stopped at an antique store in Stillwater, Minnesota, and bumped into the most beautiful Art Nouveau vintage wedding band from 1930. It's a gorgeous thin yellow gold band with flower motif all around...the fit was perfect and it added a really great texture without looking too mismatched. I bought it on the spot. Gabe isn't always into vintage...he's every bit "modern" to my "nostalgic" tastes. But he loves it too...and I also think he loved that we saved several hundred dollars.
Two weeks later and I'm still in love. I may or may not be slipping it on every few days just to make sure it still looks great. :)
What kind of band do you have or dream of wearing someday?
