Your beau just popped the question! You are over the moon and just when you have said “Yes” and the tears are dried from your eyes, you take a second, better look this time, to the engagement ring that comes out of the velvet box and settles on your finger.
Hmm, the truth is that this ring isn’t you. It just doesn’t fit your personal style, you would never buy it by yourself, you DON’T like it! Deep breath and think that you are not the only one that hates her engagement ring. The brides that can secretly guide their men to the right choice, unfortunately are very few.
Now, be careful… the situation demands to be careful and elegant so you won’t make any mistakes.
Rule Number One (the one you can NEVER break). You don’t say a thing. Not that you would, but if the urge is very strong then suppress it! There are solutions! Trust us.
YOU WILL LEARN TO LOVE IT
It is most possible not to tell anything to your fiancé, because of course you don’t want to hurt his feelings, but the truth is that you will learn to love it by time. Not the ring itself, but its emotional value and all those things that it represents. You know, the love he has for you, the promise to spend your whole life together, the fact that he wants to create a family with you… those are so many!
YOU EITHER CHANGE IT OR YOY SELL IT
If you really can’t stand it and we mean with no way the solution is only one. You exchange it with something you really love and fits you better. But first you must discuss it with your fiancé. First, you make it clear how happy and excited you are with your wedding. Then you kindly ask if it would bother him to go and check out rings together. At the end, he won’t say no because all he wants is to make you happy. If you can’t return it you can always sell it and buy something that fits you better (no need to say again that your fiancé must agree to that as well).
*BE CAREFUL TO THE TRAPS
- You must be extra careful to the way you will handle the issue because, let’s be honest, it is quite sensitive. You are the one who knows how your fiancé would react to such a situation so make sure to handle it right.
- It is a very unpleasant situation and we are really sorry to tell you, but unfortunately if the ring is a family heirloom that passes from generation to generation then you have no luck at all. The burden is very heavy and you must carry it on. No matter what, just think that you are marrying the one you love… Oh, and make sure the wedding rings are 100% your choice! It’s payback time!
