No Wedding Band?
Here is our delimma:
We have decided to go back to graduate school, which means that we won't have real, full-time jobs. We will both have 2 part-time jobs. So, money won't be growing on our trees.

When my FH bought my engagement ring, it didn't come in a set. He didn't think about how expensive the wedding band might be that matched the engagement ring that he picked out.

Here is a picture of the ring that is the only one that would match my wedding band. It is about $1200 alone. Plus, we have to purchanse his wedding band, making our cost up to about $2000. Because of the payment system we have with the jewelry store, we would have to pay that off in 12 months.

Since we're going to be in college, $2000 is a lot for us to pay in 1 year.

So, we have talked about waiting to get my wedding band for a couple years. It would make we very sad, but if it would help us out financially, I could live with it.

I know that some women don't have a wedding band and it's not that big of a deal. But what do you think about our situation? What would you do?
Wedding Favors
Fortune Cookies!
For wedding favors, we are getting custom fortune cookies! The story is is that during college, where my FH and I met, we both worked in Chinese Restaurants. They were different restaurant that were owned by the same people. So we had the same bosses who we love! And they love us just as much! :) I was a server at one restaurant and he was a delivery boy at the other restaurant. Since serving Chinese food got us through college, we are having fortune cookies at our wedding with special messages inside like:

Michael and Kelsey April 10, 2010

Thank you for sharing this special day with us!

Some love lasts a lifetime. True love lasts forever.

I think they will be so cute and a big hit!
And actaully my FH and I have decided to go back to graduate school at the same college. We are signing the lease for our 1st apartment together this week. We are going to be working on campus part time, which means that we will get our tuition for FREE! And guess where else we'll be working part time.... Yes, at the chinese restaurants. They already told us that we could have jobs there, so that's our plan. I'm not really that excited about being a married woman and serving at a restaurant, but I'll be 23, still be in college and just making a living for now!
So that's our fortune cookie story and our plans :)

Back Drop Necklace
Classy or Trashy?
I am getting my jewelry custom made. I pretty much know what I want. I am thinking about getting a back drop necklace. The back drop wouldn't be as long as the one in the picture shown. I would get it so that it end in the upper middle of my shoulder blades. I really like the look, but for some reason, I feel that if it isn't executed just perfectly, it might look a little tacky.

But what is your opinion? Do you think this looks classy or trashy?
Are you getting two?
I was wondering if you are getting 2 garters - a keepsake and a toss.
I know a lot of them come in sets, but some don't. And I was wondering if I really need 2 of them. I was thinking that I could just wear one and toss that same one. Because really, I probably won't ever need a keepsake one. I doubt that I'll pull it out and look at it ever again!
I was just wondering what your thoughts are.
