- #WeddingTalk: The Wedding Rings -
Cake tastings and wedding rings and invitation ordering, oh my! - direct quote from my bank account.
You're writing all of these checks, you're crossing everything off on your list, but if you're anything like me, you're also confusing yourself. After more than a few trips to the jeweler, I've learned a thing or two about wedding band shopping. Here goes:
- Get sized properly. Will you be wearing your wedding band on your right or left hand? I won't be stacking my rings - meaning that I will need two different rings in two different sizes. My right ring finger is sized significantly larger than my left. What month will you be married in? Your fingers may dramatically swell or shrink depending on the season. I had never really noticed this, but it's true!
- Become familiar with your ring's insurance. Every six months, my ring requires a checkup. Know your policy and what is expected of you. It can be confusing and you may be embarrassed to ask for the explanation a third time. Do it anyway.
- Buy what you want. It's easy to be swayed by other people's opinions. You have a hundred boxes to check off on your wedding to-do list. You're tired of making decisions. Everyone is telling you what is 'traditional' or 'nontraditional' or what they have done. If you need any opinion, ask your fiancé. Personally, I really enjoyed seeing what rings Chris thought worked for me. I actually chose one that he picked out.
Is anyone a jewelry guru? Any advice for us brides-to-be buying wedding bands? xx
