Worst start to my wedding week

I dropped both of my rings off 10/4 to have sized and dipped and was told it would take 7-10 days. She assured me that would be the longest as I expressed concern since my wedding is 10/18. Today I call their 1800# and I'm told 2-4 weeks! WTF?! So I called the store directly and the woman said they should be in Friday... Um, no. After I unleashed bridezilla, she said she'd call the jeweler to see if they could be shipped sooner. God help both of us if they're not in. She's in for a rude awakening if I they're not here by Friday.

If that wasn't bad enough, FH's grandfather fell on Friday, the ER sent him home and we went right back Saturday for severe pain. Today, they finally found the cause of his pain- he broke his hip. Needless to say, he cannot make the wedding. I feel so bad for FH. His father is deceased and his father's side of the family lives in Greece and hasn't had contact with them in about 8 year.

WTF. I may get my first grey hair.

    So sorry!! I know it won't be the same without your actual rings but can you get some filler rings just in case? Obviously no where near what you want but maybe it'll make you feel a little better just to have an alternative in place?

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that it all works out!

    And, in the end, you're getting MARRIED! That's all that matters!!

    Awww, I'm so sorry about your FH's grandfather. Smiley sad

    Stay on their a$$es about those rings. They told you 7-10 days and they should put a rush on them.

    You will still have a lovely wedding and be married to your FH soon!! (I can loan you some gray hairs... ;-)

    Ugh that sucks. I agree with Kylene - get some cheapies just in case. Then you won't be stressing as much. No one will be able to see them during the ceremony anyway.

    Thank you ladies! Still no word on my rings. I had a minor panic attack yesterday, but am calmer today for some reason. We will see come Friday.

    FH's grandfather is hanging in there. He suffers from Parkinson's Disease (very advanced) so he's very accident prone. FH took the news a little better than I thought, but he's obviously still upset. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a successful surgery tomorrow for good old PapPap!

    HAHAHA Kim! I don't see any grey hairs on you! Smiley smile

    What the actual hell is that? Seriously, they dipped, cleaned, soldered, and check the prongs on my ring in ONE day. We went to a privately owned jeweler, but still!!

    Also, aren't you almost 30? If so and you haven't had a grey hair yet - you're a bitch! (Not really, but you know) I had my first grey hair on my 23rd birthday. Six of them.

    Really Gamecox!? We got both of my rings at Helzberg, so we went with them. Apparently they ship them out to someone else! Unreal.

    HAHAHA!!! I actually turned 31 last week and still no grey hairs. (Knock on wood) I owe my good hair genes to my dad. He didn't start getting grey hairs until he was in his late 40s.

    Yeah, H got my rings from Jared's, but had a bad experience. He got the diamond from this place I talked about (called Dem's). We were willing to pay the $50 to have it soldered to have it at a place we trusted. The jeweler did it all there on site. God only knows what would come back if we went back to Jared's.

    Ah! I would be freaking the fuck out too. They need to get them to you...NOW! But, I'm sure they can get them back to you in time.

    P.S. I might stalk out the Meridian on Friday to try to get a glimpse of ya'll. That wouldn't be too creepy right?

    I had major vendor issues the week of. I just had to let it all go and say we will still be married. Just relax. Who cares if both the flowers and linens are not what I ordered!
