Our experts share can't miss tips for brides and weigh in on tricky, frequently asked engagement questions like "What do I do if I hate my ring?" and more.

What do I say when people ask me how much my engagement ring cost?

Um, who are these people? In no universe is it ever OK for anyone to ask a woman how much her engagement ring cost. Let us be clear: The only thing someone should say when you flash your rock is "It's so beautiful! How did he propose?" Cut. Scene. End of story.

Rant over. On to your question: Though you may be tempted to come back with a big fat "None of your business," rise above and dodge the question instead. Say something like "Oh, my fiancé would never tell. And I would never ask. Takes the romance out of it, don't you think?" That ought to give her the message.
