I never had an engagement ring from Justin when we got married the first time back in May 2007 but it was by choice. I personally felt I didn’t need the extra expense and most engagement rings are pricey, especially white gold or platinum because I do not like yellow gold nor does Justin. So we never did the whole engagement thing, it was more like “lets get married” and three months later we had it planned and completed the ceremony in our backyard with close friends and family.
We did shop for wedding bands and yes we looked online and did end up purchasing our wedding bands online for a really low price. Due to the fact that we didn’t have an engagement and no engagement ring I had thought about maybe getting me one of the many diamond wedding bands we saw online. I loved the idea of a diamond wedding band, it looked so pretty and seemed to kill two birds with one stone, meaning it was like an engagement ring and wedding band all in one.
Overall we were happy with the way we were married and our decision to have no engagement but now we have discussed getting remarried since I was so quick to file those divorce papers. This time around we will have an engagement period and we will run away together with possibly the children to get married in private. No family, no friends … just two love birds and possibly their children. We never had a honey moon either and this time around we will have an amazing honey moon for sure! I love the idea of Hawaii but I am too scared to fly, can I get over this fear within the next year so that if we choose to remarry we can experience a wonderful US island?
