I was always told that it was bad luck to the extreme to make your
own wedding bands. Case in point - my friends Sean and Patter were
getting married on a saturday afternoon at four. He hadn't made the
ring, kept putting it of, and finally had to make it on that
saturday at two oclock. He was late to the wedding. If you know
Patter, well, let's just say she wasn't pleased. Bad luck indeed.
Ummm…no offense but this had nothing to do with luck. Sounds
like another case of the cobblers children having no shoes, or in
my case “the jewelers husband having no cuff links”. Guilty myself
sometimes, but I sure didn’t fool around with the wedding bands.
Another case in point, the professor I got my masters with made
his wife a huge gold and multi stone ring free form 70’s style for
his wife as a wedding ring. The apartment building they were in at
the time caught on fire and a helpful firefighter went to retrieve
some valuables for them after the blaze was under control. He
brought down the “valuables” from her dresser and she said “oh no,
where is my wedding ring?” Turns out it was so big and strange to
him he assumed it was some wacky costume jewelry and left it there.
The ring was retrieved and 30ish yrs later they have the ring, the
marriage and a couple of great college age kids to disprove the
