I am crediting Dancy for the idea behind today’s installment of the Bride Guide, she actually did this on her honeymoon and I thought it was genius!!
So you’re headed on your honeymoon, and whether near or far, or how extravagant your vacation may be, you might still find yourself worrying about the security of your engagement ring and wedding band during your trip. Well, if you are really worried about it, and think you might end up leaving the rings behind in the safe one day (or at all), and you’re scared of theft, you should do what my good friend Dancy did: buy a replica ring set and leave your real rings safely at home!
At times during our honeymoon in Hawaii, I wished I had done this because I ended up snorkeling with my left hand in a fist to make sure my rings wouldn’t come off, as I was too afraid to leave them behind in the hotel safe. I have never really taken my rings off and I wasn’t about to start a trend while on vacation!
You know you’ve seen them at Claire’s, Forever 21, and even TJ Maxx – and at such a low price, it totally makes sense to just grab a nice little “replica” set of your own. While nothing will ever replace the real set, these decoy rings will be the perfect stand-in and you won’t be heartbroken if they sink to the bottom of the ocean!
Thanks Dancy for the great idea!
