Wedding Wednesday: Vol. 1

You may or may not have heard, but I am officially engaged!
Yes, I'm excited! No, we haven't set a date! Yes, I was surprised!
From now until the wedding I am going to be making posts on occasional Wednesdays that will be about Wedding ideas, inspirations, and projects. I plan to have a mostly DIY wedding and I look forward to many projects along the way!

But first, the ring:




It is more than I ever imagined and I'm in awe of it's beauty. Why the blue stone? I knew that I didn't want a big diamond, it just didn't feel like me. I told Ryan that I would like a blue stone and then from there narrowed it down to a Blue Topaz. Blue Topaz is not only my favorite color, but it is also Ryan's birthstone. Every time I look at my ring I'm filled with joy, not only is it beautiful, but it reminds me of the future that Ryan and I will share.

I'm not promising a wedding post every week, but when I do post something about my upcoming nuptials it will always be on a Wednesday!

I know just what you mean about diamonds... they never did it for me either - which is why I have a beautiful sapphire engagement ring - which I still LOVE after 28 years!.. crap I am old LOL

I looooove your ring! I have lots of blue topaz jewelry and almost told my hubby to get a blue stone instead of diamond when he was ring shopping. I chickened out and was afraid it would be too different, so I decided to go with blue sapphire accents on the sides instead. But your ring looks GORGEOUS on you!!! Glad you stuck with what you wanted instead of what is the norm. It is beautiful!! Congratulations!
