With our wedding being 7 months away, Hector and I each week are crossing an item off our wedding to-do list. The last few months have been so exciting! Saying yes to my dress, choosing the bridesmaid dresses, and figuring out the last of the details for the big day have all been part of the last few months of planning. One of the items on our to-do list included picking our wedding bands. When Hector was thinking about proposing, he didn’t know what engagement ring to choose, but he did know he wanted to go through a small, family-owned business to get the best experience possible. Growing up with my dad owning a small business, I know just how important one’s support is. America was built on family-owned businesses so whenever we have the opportunity to, we always choose to shop small.A little nervous about picking a ring, Hector was at ease knowing he’d have the help of true experts and would be guided through the whole process before making the big decision.  Now, almost one year later, we are going back to Ancona Jewelers to choose our wedding bands. Ancona Jewelers has been operating for 34 years, with the last several years focusing mostly on engagement rings. With their slogan being “The Official Jewelers of Yes,” you know just by walking in that you are in the right hands. The whole experience made us feel like we were truly being taken care of.With so many options to choose from for our wedding bands, it was hard to narrow it down! In fact, we’ve visited several times now, prepared with questions before making our decision. I know how important the wedding band is for both myself and for Hector so we wanted to make sure we both really loved our choices.I’ve always loved the classic, delicate, and vintage look of Tacori, which is who designed my engagement ring. I love my engagement ring so with that in mind, I knew I wanted my wedding band to be the same designer.Hector also chose a very classic design for his wedding band. He chose a white gold gentleman’s band with a satin finish and beveled edges.Having the wedding bands officially chosen makes me wish we could wear them tomorrow! 😉  We are so looking forward to the day we officially become Mr. and Mrs. Bauza!

A special thanks to Ancona Jewelers for playing such an important role throughout our engagement and beyond. This post was not sponsored. All opinions and experiences are my own.
