You’ve been engaged for some time now and you think it’s time to plan your wedding. While you’re stressed out about booking the right venue and sending out invitations, you may forget about one very important detail: the wedding rings. The wedding ring is a symbol of love, its circular shape represents infinity. You should tick this off the list as early as possible, especially if you want a customised ring because they can take up to 6 months to be ready, and you most certainly don’t want to be left with no ring on your wedding day.
When you first start to research the subject of rings, you realise it is actually faster than you’ve ever imagined. You may find yourself lost, but if you follow some simple tips, they will make your search go much smoother. And, in the end, a wedding is supposed to be a happy event, not a stressful one. So, if we can make it easier for you, why not?
Research Before Buying
Before you actually go into stores and try on different wedding rings, you and your partner should do a little research and set some guidelines. You need to think about your budget. Since you are going to wear them forever (hopefully), then you may invest a little more money into them and make sure they last well in time.
After setting a budget, you need to think about how you want them to look. Maybe you want them to match your engagement ring, or maybe you want something completely new. The possibilities are endless, and just like the wedding dress, you will know when you see one, but it doesn’t hurt to set a preference in terms of size, material and style. Maybe you want gold ones. But what type of gold? Classic gold, rose gold, white gold? Pinterest is going to be your best friend. There are so many inspiration pictures there, you will want them all.
Your Opinion Is All That Matters
After having a few ideas about what you want, go out and start trying on different ones. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and always make sure that your ring is comfortable. You don’t want to have to return it and go through this process all over again.
You will hear a lot of opinions from the people around you, but what really matters is that you both like the rings, because you are the ones who are going to wear them. Do you want to go the traditional way and get two simple matching bands? That’s fine. Do you want your rings to be completely different from one another? That’s perfectly fine as well. Do as you please, if that’s what makes you happy.
And in the end, don’t forget to have fun while going ring shopping. Yes, maybe you lost some time trying on rings that you or your partner did not like, or maybe the sales assistant was not the nicest person, but think about the excitement you are going to feel when you are done with this task and you have your beautiful rings ready to exchange on the day of the wedding.
