Start wedding ring shopping well in advance.
It’s a good idea to start wedding ring shopping about three months before your big day so you don’t feel rushed.
Do some pre-shopping research
You’ll want to do a bit of thinking before you actually hit the jewelry stores. First and foremost, come up with a budget.
Think about personalization
Do you want to personalize your rings and make them special? Do you want to engrave a date or a saying? Or maybe a birthstone or other symbol of your love? Do you want the bands to match or be uniquely different?”
It can be easy to become a bit nervous about asking questions—but it’s essential that you speak up if you have concerns.
Active brides and grooms may want to take extra care in choosing a ring that matches their lifestyle. For men, contemporary metals such as titanium, palladium, or tungsten are comfortable and durable.
And for women, plain metals with few if any diamonds work best. A plain metal band will require little to no maintenance versus a diamond setting that will always need a little care.
Complement your favorite jewelry
Think about jewelry that you already wear everyday. For men, that is often a watch, and for women, their engagement ring or simple rings. Your wedding band doesn’t have to match your jewelry, but should complement it.
