When to Buy Your Wedding Ring

Posted on March 16 2021

Among the vast number of wedding planning that needs to be done as the big day sneaks up, small things like buying wedding rings seem to be put on the back burner in comparison to other aspects. Finding a venue, picking out a dress or tuxedo, booking entertainment and more are the focal points for the majority of the planning session. But when’s a good time to buy the wedding rings? Don’t worry, this guide will help you create the perfect timeline to fit the purchase of the wedding rings into the rest of the wedding planning chaos.

Start Searching Early

Once you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with your partner, it’s time to go ring shopping. Whether you’re planning on proposing the next day or in a few months, shopping around early will alleviate the pressure later on when the time is right but you can’t find anything short notice. This is true when buying wedding bands for the ceremony as well.

It’s good to start saving once the idea of getting married to your partner pops into your head. Wedding rings don’t have to be expensive, but a good quality one can set you back hundreds or thousands of dollars. Starting the search early will give you time to create a budget and explore your options.

Possible Wait Time

If you’re thinking about having a custom ring made for your partner, you need to consider the fact that you won’t be walking out of the store an hour later with a custom made ring. Depending on where you go and how elaborate the design is, you could be waiting for the ring for weeks or months. Not to mention that some custom jewellers may have to put you on a waiting list before they can even start on the piece. The wait will depend on whether or not you’re getting married in the middle of wedding season.

Allow Time for Alterations

Extra time may be needed to have the ring you’ve selected resized or inscribed with a loving message to your significant other. However, anything could happen in the time leading up to your wedding. You or your partner could lose or gain weight, preventing the ring from fitting as it once did. Make sure to keep all receipts in case you need anything resized or returned.

Find Alternative Ring Options

Whether you’ve decided to get married in a week or you simply forgot to purchase wedding rings for your big day, there are simple ways around it, at least for the meantime. Instead of stressing yourself out over not having the perfect ring, buy simplistic wedding bands or temporary rings for the ceremony itself. Then after the wedding, take the time to shop around and find the perfect rings for you and your partner.
