Ways to Pick the Perfect Wedding Ring. Our ultimate ring buying guide will help you choose a wedding ring you love. You’ve got the engagement ring (after dropping a few hints of course), now it’s time to pick out the perfect wedding ring to go along with it—and we’ve got all the help you’ll need. Before saying “I do” to the perfect wedding ring, check out our guide on every important factor to consider. Narrow Down Your Wedding Ring Choices. Diamonds or gemstones, platinum or gold—narrowing down your ring options may seem overwhelming, but don’t panic. Just take it one step at a time. Start with style: Are you envisioning a simple band or one with embellishments? Do you want your wedding ring to be the same metal as your engagement ring? Do you think you and your partner’s rings should match? Work out these kind of questions beforehand so you can zero in on exactly what you`re looking for, then start shopping around.
Just make sure they`re comfortable with whatever you want them to wear. Choose responsible honor attendants. The best honor attendants are friends who are responsible (since you`re going to rely on them for some big wedding planning tasks and to hold on to your expensive rings) and good at providing emotional support, because there just might be a few prewedding meltdowns. (It also helps if they`re super-fun, since they`ll be planning the bachelor and bachelorette parties.) Tip for the taking: If your best friend isn`t always the most dependable person, it`s perfectly okay to have two best men or maids of honor. Pick your unpredictable BFF and another friend you can rely on for the big, important duties. Don`t ask someone just because they asked you. Weddings are no time for quid pro quo. You don`t need to ask someone to be in your wedding because they asked you to be in their wedding. Don`t ask the college roommate you haven`t spoken to in five years just to return the favor. Tip for the taking: If they want to talk to you about why they aren`t in your wedding, be completely honest. Explain that it was a tough decision but you really felt like you should have the people you feel closest to at this point in your life standing up for you, and there are so many of those people (including him or her) that you had to leave out some very special ones. Research other roles.
Start Your Ring Search Early. Once you have a basic idea of what kind of ring you`d like, it`s time for the fun part: trying them on! Give yourselves at least two to three months before the wedding date to ring shop. You`ll need this time to browse, research prices and revisit rings that catch your eye. If you have your heart set on a custom ring, you`ll probably need even more time. And keep in mind: Extras, like engraving, can take up to one month. Mix It Up. Don`t fret if you like platinum and your partner likes yellow gold. There`s no rule that says you have to choose the same metal or even style. You could compromise with braided bands that blend the two metals together or just be totally different—the key to finding something you both love is choosing wedding bands that reflect your individual styles. Set a Budget. Shop with the assumption that you`ll spend about 3 percent of your total wedding budget on the rings. Depending on the retailer, a plain, 14-karat gold or simple platinum band can cost around $1,000. Embellishments, like diamonds or engraving, will quickly add to the cost, so factor that into your budget if you plan to personalize your rings with any of these extras. The price of engraving is usually based on the number of characters, the font used and whether it`s engraved by hand or machine (hand is usually pricier). Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind.
