It's nearing the end of 2016!!

I did Q1 and Q2 updates separately earlier this year but I was too busy to compile the photos for Q3 and now it's already almost the end of Q4 so I might as well join them together. Haha.

Wedding Preparations - Wedding Rings

We purchased our wedding rings last month!

I have always felt that the significance of a wedding ring is purely symbolic. The design should be suitable for daily wear and preferably simple. Luckily for me, bf shared the same view and we agreed to get classic gold bands :)

I do not intend to continue wearing my engagement ring everyday after marriage as it'd be replaced with the wedding ring. Hence, I don't need both to match.

At the start, we thought it was going to be a fairly easy search since we weren't looking for fancy designs - every shop should have plain rings right? We were so wrong! We went to so many well-known jewellery shops like Goldheart, Sookee, Leehwa, etc but their wedding rings are mostly only 18K white gold / rose gold / platinum, whereas we were looking for 916 gold. Even if they have 916 gold, all of them had some lines or slight design, which I didn't like.

In the end, we went to a highly-recommended traditional gold shop and found our gold rings there. Again, I thought it will be a quick buy but I spent a long time in the shop deciding on the various factors. For example, the design. Even plain ones got flat / round ones. I initially wanted flat ones but bf preferred the round ones. After settling on round, we gotta consider the broadness/width, the thickness, and finally, size. Should I get it slightly tight or slightly loose? I will definitely get fatter with age right? But I am afraid of losing the ring if it's not tight enough... Decisions decisions.

And we finally decided on THE PAIR.
