Weddings are exciting, right? A declaration of love between two people, a party to remember for ages, the full works! It all starts with the engagement and the all-important engagement ring.
Getting everything ready can be daunting, but it’s important to be true to yourself. What you and your partner want is most important, so forget what other people think. Whether it’s to do with the perfect venue, the most beautiful dress, the tastiest cake, it’s your decision. And if other people don’t like it, stay true to yourself.
However, that can be difficult. An anonymous bride-to-be shared photos of her minimalist wedding ring on a bridal Facebook group. She was expecting joy and congratulations on her engagement, but instead, she was horrified by what happened.
Vile trolls mocked her “tiny” engagement ring, pictured above. And it may be small, but it’s very beautiful, and exactly what she wanted. She accompanied the photo with the caption “My bf and I ordered my ring online and I am in LOVE with it!”
However, some of the comments were horrible and hurtful.
“Why even bother having a diamond there,” one person commented.
“So take that keyring off your finger and show us the ring you ordered online,” said a less-than-hilarious joker.
Another wrote: “It’s so pitiful, I just can’t. It’s too sad.”
The engagement ring is a symbol of the couple’s love, and it doesn’t have to be covered in giant diamonds to show they love each other. But the comments section didn’t seem to agree. The abusive onslaught continued.
“I have assembled my colleagues of world class physicists and astronomers, we are building new instrumentation so we can see your ******* ring.”
“You’ve got a smidge of tinfoil on your band.”
“I guess neither of you want anyone to know you’re engaged huh.”
The bride-to-be took it all in her stride and was comfortable sharing her story. We think the ring is very beautiful, but that’s not what matters! It is a symbol of the couple’s love, and we’re sure that their non-materialistic ideals will lead them to a happy marriage.
