I'm so glad things are working out for you! I'm the same way with jewelry...so I get it :) and the ring wrap sounds like a cool idea.
I had a 15 month engagement as well. It just happened that we got engaged on New Year's Eve and wanted a spring wedding(husband did not want hot weather) and had to do marriage preparation stuff...so it just took longer. You said it best, you can't win! It'll work out fine :)
