When you’re in the midst of planning your wedding day, it’s almost too easy to forget some essentials such as your Wedding Rings. If you don’t know the first thing about wedding rings, don’t fret – you’re not alone! Whether you’re buying online or in-store it’s an essential stage that a little bit of knowledge won’t go a miss and will help you to make the right purchase.
Traditionally, the Bride’s family would pay for the Groom’s ring, and the Groom’s family the Bride’s ring. But these days that tradition is less and less followed with the couples purchasing their own wedding rings, as it is a personal choice and you’ll likely purchase them together it seems more ‘fitting’ than tradition would have it.
Ideally, its good to start looking as soon as you know what type of rings or bands you’d prefer, with the actual purchase at least two to three months prior to your wedding. An important element to consider when choosing your wedding ring is to take into account your daily activities and lifestyle, if you’re a very active person something big or diamond-encrusted might not be the best choice for you.
The top 4 mistakes couples make when it comes to buying their wedding rings:
#1 Thinking they HAVE to match
While some couples want their wedding rings to match, it’s not a must and is perfectly acceptable to opt for different styles. Instead of matching you can get styles that complement each other, say you want rose gold your hubby-to-be could opt for a rose gold interior of his band or vice versa.
#2 Waiting until the last minute
As mentioned, it’s easy to get swept up in the planning of the big day that your wedding rings may become a little last minute. However, it’s a piece of your wedding that should be well thought about and something that both of you should consider. Plus if you’re thinking of personalising them, ordering online, or potentially needing them to be resized this will increase the importance of allowing plenty of time before your big day.
#3 Guessing your sizes
Avoid the additional stress by finding your ring sizes out in advance, this should also prevent resizing and make your shopping experience a bit smoother.
#4 Being Limited to Tradition
Don’t think that you have to go for anything traditional or classic. There are some great alternative wedding ring options out there such as custom wedding bands, contoured bands, and plenty more to choose from.
If you’re purchasing your wedding rings online it’s important to choose a trustworthy retailer, verify the certificate that comes with your rings, read the return policy and pay attention to shipping. Reliable websites will insure their packages and usually cover the shipping costs however it’s best to check this beforehand just in case.
