The Bride's Wedding Ring

JP and I were on the lookout for the perfect pair of rings for some months now.  We've visited mall shops, attended wedding fairs, consulted a jewelry designer, but to no avail.  We found some that we liked, but it was always out of our budget.

Now as I was strolling along in the Midvalley Megamall in KL, Malaysia, casually entering jewelry stores and inquiring about this and that, the salesman I was talking to presented me with something that caught my eye.  I really loved it, and the best part was it was discounted, and I mean HUGELY discounted, at that time!  I couldn't wait to go back to where I was staying to tell JP that I found something that I really liked.  Of course, at the back of my head, a little voice was hesitant to tell him about this. I know it's almost traditional for the bride and groom to shop for their wedding bands together. It's one of those decisions between you and your fiance that really need careful thinking and planning.  But what do you do if you find the one that you want to be on your finger for the rest of your life by yourself, without hubby-to-be by your side? What happens to the careful thinking and planning and discussions between you and your partner?

I couldn't let go of this offer and decided to let him know about this.  I wanted to know if it was fine with him that I buy our rings separately.  JP only had two questions for me: how much is it and do I really like it? I guess I answered both questions correctly because he lovingly gave me a go signal to buy it, and so I did!

my wedding band
It's a half eternity ring, super thin, just the way I wanted it.  It cost around MYR3,000++, but I was so blessed to have met that endearing salesman who gave me a discount on top of a discount on top of a discount. :) I don't think I can find a ring like this with that price anywhere else!

wedding band with engagement ring
I just love how the wedding band enhances the beauty of my engagement ring.  Though it seems that my wedding band will play a supporting role to my engagement ring and not the other way around, I really don't mind.  I treasure the ring that JP gave me as much as, maybe even more than, the one that I bought without him.

Some photos that I took.  I was feeling like a wedding photographer and decided to take a shot at creativity.  I wish I have a camera like theirs, too.

I just love it so much I'm afraid I can't wait for JP to put this on my finger on December!  Ican't even seem to take it off now!

Value I need at this time: Patience.
