Tips for Planning a Wedding Last Minute: Ring Edition

wedding ring sets, planning a wedding, customizable engagement ringsIt’s time for another installment in my last-minute tips for planning a wedding series! Have you already read my posts about choosing a venue and a wedding dress? Good!

It’s time to move on to another important aspect: your wedding rings! From the engagement ring (like our new customizable engagement rings) to the bands, wedding ring sets serve an important purpose. They’re the outward facing symbol of your love and commitment to each other. It's no easy task to choose rings that you not only adore but that also perfectly symbolize your love. And when you add a time crunch on top of that, it can really be challenging! That’s why I’m here to help with these tips:

1. Know Your Budget

Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite topic: money. Some of us have more of it than others. Luckily, wedding ring sets are available at all different price points. Figuring out how much you would like to spend on wedding rings upfront will prevent you from looking at rings you can’t afford. Figure out your number and only look at rings below that price point.

2. Know Your Ring Size

Your ring size is the next thing you need to figure out. You can walk into any jewelry store and have this done. Here’s how you know when you’ve found the perfect ring size: your ring feels comfortable, but it’s a little hard to get off. That way, you can wear your ring without any discomfort without having to worry about it slipping off your finger. It should just fit over the largest part of your finger. Remember: you’re looking for a nice, snug fit. Fun fact: your finger is largest at night, so it would be best to get it measured later in the day. To measure your ring size at home, you can print out a ring sizer guide here.

3. Figure Out What You Like

Now that you know your budget and your ring size, you can start the fun part of the process! Maybe you’re one of those people who has always known what type(s) of rings you want. If so, skip to the next tip. If not, it’s time to start looking. There are a lot of decisions you’ll need to make: white gold or yellow gold? Solitaire or cluster? The list goes on. Do some research, and decide on the basics. Once you know what you’re generally looking for, you can scope out your options!

4. Buy a Set

Here’s another helpful hint: instead of buying your rings separately, buy a set! Wedding rings sets make this important purchase much simpler. They usually come at a lower cost, and, if you’re a fan of matching wedding bands, you can easily get a set that matches. If you really want to cross wedding rings off your list, you can buy a set with all three rings--something we like to call a My Trio Rings Set. Wedding rings sets come in all shapes and sizes, so you’re bound to find one that has the design you’ve been searching for.
