Wedding Ring Do's and Don'ts
We’re experts at planning weddings and receptions, but we know a thing or two about all of the details that make your wedding perfect. You’ll find that we’ve got some great tips to help you choose the right dress, the right decorations, and now, the right wedding ring!
Here are a few do’s and don’ts for your wedding ring:
- Find a ring that matches your style — Are you really a gaudy person that needs a big diamond on your wedding ring, or would a simple wedding band do the trick? Find a ring that matches your personal style, and stay away from anything that is too complex or flashy unless that is your way of dressing.
- Remember it may need to be resized. Weight gain and loss is inevitable, but can your ring be easily resized? Rings with gemstones all the way around them are much harder to resize, so consider simple platinum or gold sans stones.
- Find one that matches the engagement ring. You don’t HAVE to choose the same metal for both rings, but remember that metals wear at different speeds. If you have one gold and one platinum, you may find yourself with two very different-looking rings in a few years.
- Forget the balance — If you are going to wear gemstones on the wedding ring, it might be a good idea to have the stones go all the way around the ring. If there is just one stone on one side, you could end up adjusting the ring regularly just to keep it stone-side up.
- Overdo it. If your engagement ring was fancy, why would you go all out on the wedding ring as well? The engagement ring is supposed to be flashy and showy, but the wedding ring is usually simpler and more durable. Keep the wedding ring simple, and the engagement ring will stand out more.
- Get a thicker ring. Two slim rings match better than one slim one and one thick one. You should look for a wedding band that is the same thickness as your engagement ring, as that will ensure that they match.
- Feel obliged to get “his and hers”. The two weddings rings should match the style of the bride and the groom, not necessarily each other. If you both have different styles, why would you try to force the styles to match? Instead, consider getting rings that match your style and your partner’s style uniquely, rather than trying to get a set.
- Join the two rings. It may not be wise to travel with a flashy engagement ring, and you may want to leave it at home. However, if you solder the two rings together, that may not be possible. It may be better to leave the rings unsoldered just in case.
