It's worth a 10-minute hiatus in the nuptial action to make sure you can retrieve the bride's ring. They didn't find it during the ceremony, thankfully the vicar found it later. Phew!
An engagement ring lost four years ago at Rigby Lake in Idaho was recovered by a kayaker and returned to its owner. Necia Rasmussen misplaced her princess-cut diamond ring while visiting the lake in 2008, when she removed it to apply sunscreen to her children. Interestingly enough, her mother-in-law also had a similar experience in which she lost her engagement ring only to find it thirty years later in the family garden. Luck runs in the family!
