I'm on panic mode!!!\n\nMy wedding ring and engagement ring had to be sent away to be altered in size. My Dad's cousin works in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham (about 30-40 minutes away from us) and said he'd do them for me. He even said he'll do it as our wedding present so we haven't had to pay, which is great.\n\nHe'd had them for weeks, started to get worried, was going to send him a message to ask how they were going and if he wanted me to pick them up, but he came to my parents' house briefly to drop them off last night (we so happened to be there having tea with them), but we were eating at the time and he had to rush off so didn't come in the house.\n\nAfter tea I tried the rings on. The engagement ring is fine, a little tight but came off relatively easy so the tightness I put down to the heat swelling my fingers a bit. However the wedding ring is still too small, couldn't get it on my finger, and the stone that's in it is missing.\n\nI have text him, but awaiting a reply. I'm now in a panic as the wedding is 3 weeks away, he had my rings about 5-6 weeks before yesterday, and if he doesn't get back to me quick I'll have to think of ordering another one, and will have to do that early to ensure they get it in stock in my size (luckily they still do the ring), but it'll mean another £179.99 to pay. Also, our rings had the engraving "Two hearts- One soul" inside, and with the enlarging I've lost half of it, and me and H2B have had matching rings, so as much as I'd feared I'd lose the writing its gutted me as well.\n\nI don't blame my Dad's cousin, and I feel bad telling him there's a problem, I got my Dad to hear the text before I sent it so I didn't come across as blaming him or annoyed. He's been good enough to my family over the last couple of years and I can't thank him enough for altering the rings for free as his gift. In terms of the stone he can probably replace it no problem, he did it with my Nan's eternity ring for me when I got given it after she died, one of the emeralds I think it was, was missing when I had it. However, I do remember when we went for the rings the woman in the shop said your wedding ring should be a size bigger than your engagement ring, and this doesn't look like its any different in size, and with the style of the ring there's nothing to kind of help you get the ring off your finger (e.g. the engagement ring is a little thicker and can get your nails around it to pull it off, the wedding ring you can't).\n\nMy fear on the day, and has been for a bit now is that when it comes to the point of putting the ring on my finger it wont go on and will either have no ring or an embarrassing situation on the day.\n\nI feel like just going out and buying another ring as I'll know something is not right with it, but I'm now out of work (well, I work 4 hours on a Saturday, but not got a full time job anymore) and it would mean using savings made by my Nan, and my parents would see it as a waste of time buying another one. Mom even suggested buying a cheap one for the day and get the ring blessed at a later date, but to me that is not right at all- the ring you wear on the wedding day is you wedding ring no matter what to me, and with the cost of rings to buy a cheap one I might as well pay the extra and get the same one!\n\nWe didn't go to a proper jewellers for the rings- they're only Argos, so I am very tempted to go in and get my fingers measured there so they can order it in just in case, or so I know the correct size to be able to go in and order just in case. I don't want to upset family and appear ungrateful, but I want it to fee right at the same time.\n\nAn added stress I really could do without!
