I know Buffalo used to years back, and many other Carmels, but not anymore .. not sure why, but they are still wonderful of course. I do know Dallas recently (like within the past 5 years) went back to it.

I have a new question about this. If you are entering a community that does wear wedding dresses, do you get to buy your own or do they provide them at the monastery. Because if we could buy our own, I would totally love to go to Kleinfeld's in NYC to buy mine (as long as it was beautiful and modest of course!)

I really depends on the community,
Though I love Klienfeld's they are a bit pricey.. anything under 3 is considered cheap there...

Getting married to Christ! It's worth it if it's expensive!

I want an "engagement ring" because I am engaged to Jesus and I have now been looking for many months for one but they are all way over my budget. :sad:

I have this: http://www.amazon.com/Forgiven-Jewelry-Will-Wait-Ring/dp/B004S7E0KC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1322421975&sr=8-1 And for me this means a lot more than waiting for a man, this means having patience and waiting for God. Because I am blessed to have a feel for my vocation at a young age, much will be required of me in the way of patience, so this really is my engagement ring.

What a beautiful sentiment regarding the ring. The I Will Wait engraved on it could be taken many ways by different individuals, perhaps simply as a chastity ring. But you and only you (I presume) would know it's real meaning. And it's a great conversation starter if people ask what does it mean.

As I have to wait too I've been looking for a ring. I want something discreet and something that reflects who I am. I love the line from the Bible 'I am my Beloved's and my Beloved's is mine' from Song of Songs. What do you think? Its not cheap but similar rings in the UK which aren't as nice cost as much even with shipping included. I'll probably get it in silver but I might save up for the gold one.
