Wedding ring shopping is arguably one of the most important parts of your wedding planning timeline, and yet many couples leave this task until the last minute.
Because these pieces symbolize the union between you and your partner, we recommend tackling this early on to give you and your beloved enough time to choose styles that truly represent you and your commitment to each other.
Below, we go over five important tips to keep in mind during your wedding ring shopping excursions.
How to Find the Best Wedding Ring for Your Style and Budget
Set a Budget
Like all big purchases, a budget helps you stay on track with spending. It can be too easy to get caught up in the moment when you see a ring you absolutely love at your local retailer -- even though it’s hundreds of dollars out of your budget. Setting aside a wedding ring fund (and sticking to it) ensures that you stay on top of your wedding finances for the months ahead.
Although wedding planners will often tack on shopping for your wedding rings towards the end of the process, it’s important to give yourself a few months’ allowance for your wedding ring shopping timeline. This isn’t something you’d want to rush or put off towards the end, and procrastinating on this may result in some of your ring funds siphoned elsewhere for any unanticipated wedding expenses.
Go in with a Plan...
Have an idea of what you want before you start shopping, even if it’s just a general idea of, say, a plain yellow gold ring or a matching set of embellished platinum rings. Knowing what you want will cut down the time you spend looking at different rings and will help the associate determine the best styles for you.
...But Keep an Open Mind
When you do go shopping, also make a point to try a few styles different from the one you want. A certain style may look less-than-ideal in your head, but may be a design you fall in love with once you try it on. You’ll never know until you try it on for yourself!
Mix and Match
Matching your wedding ring to your partner’s or matching your wedding band to your engagement ring is not a hard and fast rule to follow. We recommend choosing styles that you both love and are comfortable with over picking a design because you “have” to. These are pieces of jewelry you’ll wear for the rest of your life, after all -- they should be reflections of you and your personal style.
