So I think it is more my own fault but I doubled our budget for our rings once we got to the jewelers. I am 100% ok with going over since it is the one thing after everything is said and done that will be worn everyday after the wedding. I don't think I really budgeted the correct amount for our rings. I looked at department store rings and added some to it but since we are having them made it makes quite a bit of difference. We definitely decided to go with lab created diamonds to keep the cost a viable option.
Is there anything that you thought you had an idea what it would cost but you realized later you really where far off? We have other places where we have saved quite a bit so it'll even out luckily.
