Decided To Make a Ring Box, And Ask My Girlfriend A Question

Pinterest will have allll of the ideas for you. Save the dates. Invitations. Table numbers. Place cards. Centerpieces. Cute signs. A million variations on the guest book. Favors. Wooden bowties for the groomsmen. Cake topper. Cermarked cake forks. You name it.

Honestly, I’m a little glad I didn’t have mine yet when I got married – it kept me from going crazy over all the possibilities :wink:

Save the box and use it again on your 25th anniversary for an anniversary ring. (I gave my wife her engagement ring in a valentine’s card with a rabbit in it and the ring was on the rabbit’s hand - it was a cartoon rabbit…25 years later gave her a new one to replace the original ring she lost at the beach one year…same card :slight_smile:)

So don’t spend all that money. For $199-799, plus airfare or gas (you’re already on the West Coast.)

Yeah, not exactly a wedding guy.

Great story! Great box. Beautiful ring! I’m going to assume you did not make the ring on your glowforge.

Best of luck!

Congratulations! It came out fantastic! Oh, I guess congratulations for the engagement, too. :grin:

I wish I had the Glowforge for my wedding. I probably would have saved some money on decorations.

Fantastic box and great way to pop the question. No surprise she was so happy. She obviously has good taste in men. You’ve set yourself a high bar, though…
