It’s the day you dreamed of for as long as you can remember. You already know exactly how you want every single little detail to be and you can picture it already in your mind. Everything MUST be perfect!
There is so much to think about, plan and do to make sure your wedding day is just the way you dreamed it. Your wedding ring is just one small detail out of many. That doesn’t mean though, that you should cut any corners on choosing a wedding ring. This small detail is one that you will live with every day for the rest of your life. So here’s 7 things you really must know before choosing your wedding ring…
1. Choose A Ring That Suits Your Day To Day Style
A wedding ring is something that you are going to wear every day for the rest of your life. So you can see why it is so important that you choose a ring that fits nicely with your own personal style. For example if you wear a lot of silver coloured jewellery, you would probably want to go for white gold or platinum. Not only that, but what diamond cut do you prefer the most? What style of band most blends in with your regular look?
These are all important questions to ask yourself before you shop for a wedding ring or have a bespoke ring made for you. You want to end up with a ring that you can happily show off day in, day out.
2. Know How Much You Want To Spend First
Setting your budget not only seems like the financially sensible thing to do, but it can also really help you find what it is you really want at a price you are willing to pay. There is one important factor in this though, you need to stick to your budget.
Without thinking about your budget for a wedding ring and sticking to it, you can often end up finding a ring that you like, then end up paying much more than you had wanted to pay which can end up eating into your overall wedding budget.
A wedding ring doesn’t have to cost you thousands of pounds just to get the perfect ring for you. For example we can offer made to order wedding rings for just a few hundred. So be sure to have a really good look around!
3. Bridal Sets Matter
Of course, your wedding ring will be worn on the same finger as your engagement ring. So it only makes sense that the styles match and go well together. This is why bridal sets are so handy as they ensure that your engagement & wedding rings not only match, but perfectly fit around one another.
It is 100% possible to find the perfect ring that will fit snugly around large stones in an engagement ring. Shaped bands eternity rings and wishbone rings are often perfect for matching with an engagement ring.
4. The More Personal, The Better
There’s something extra special about personalised rings that you just can’t get from an ordinary ring. Whether it’s your names & wedding date engraved on the band or even your fingerprints. These finer details can really make the difference when finding the wedding ring of your dreams.
It is important however, to make sure that the band of the ring you choose has enough surface area to support personalised engraving. If you do decide to get your ring engraved, it is recommended to choose a band that is at least 3-3.5mm in width to make sure an engraving can fit the band.
5. Matching Rings Are More Magical
As you both will be wearing a wedding ring, it might be a good idea to have matching wedding rings to bring that extra sense of connection.
Not only do matching wedding rings add that extra special something to the moment, but the journey of finding your wedding rings is one you will take together. It can also be quite fun doing it together as you get to know more about what each other likes and dislikes. It may actually be one of the more enjoyable things you do when planning your wedding as you can relax a little bit more and enjoy each other’s company.
6. Don’t Leave The Wedding Rings ‘Till Last
This one especially rings true if you are going for a bespoke or engraved ring. Of course there are so many different things to do when planning and preparing for a wedding. It is all too easy to end up pushing the wedding rings back closer and closer to the date. As understandable as this is, it is really not advisable.
It is usually a good idea to have your wedding ring bought at least 6 months before your wedding just in case there is something you are not quite happy with to ensure that you have enough time to sort it. There is already enough on your plate with everything else you need to do, so the last thing you want is to be worrying about whether or not your wedding rings will be ready on time!
7. Never Be Afraid To Ask A Professional For Advice
There are so many variables when choosing a wedding ring that with everything else going on it can actually be slightly daunting. Never be afraid to ask for a little bit of help from a professional if you need to know more about diamond cuts, which styles match your engagement ring or any other questions you may have. Any jeweller worth their salt would be more than happy to help you out.
