Guide to Finding the Perfect Wedding Band For You
November 1st, 2020
Despite the excitement, finding the right wedding band can be a bit of an overwhelming process. Your goal is to choose a style that will complement your engagement ring, while also matching your personality and style.
Luckily, we are here to help! We’ve created an essential guide featuring all of our favorite styles to help you find an exquisite band for your wedding day.
How to Wear Your Wedding Band
Traditionally, the most common order for wearing your wedding rings is placing the wedding band on first and the engagement ring on top to make a complete set on your left ring finger. It’s said that this tradition dates all the way back to ancient times with the idea that there’s a vein leading directly from your left ring finger straight toward your heart.
Therefore, by wearing your wedding right on the bottom, it’s the closest it can be to your heart. Choose this style if the traditional way is meaningful to you, however, your wedding ring set is all about what you want. You have the ability to wear them any way you’d like to and that includes more than one wedding band!
The Right Time to Buy Your Wedding Band
Most couples go through the process of finding their wedding bands together, but the process can be approached in a few different ways. Do you want to browse wedding bands online and send a few contenders to your fiance? This can be a great option for a mixture of surprise yet confidence in the selection.
Do you feel like taking a Saturday and wedding band shopping together? Go for it. Not only is this an exciting pre-wedding activity, but it’s also a great way to guide your fiancé into buying a ring that you both will love. On top of that, there won’t be any confusion over which ring sizes you each need and whether they should be silver or full of diamonds.
Even though most couples go wedding band shopping together, it’s not something that’s set in stone. If you and your future husband want to surprise each other, do your shopping separately and let the reveal happen right on the wedding day. It’s the perfect opportunity to add more romance and spontaneity to your wedding day.
Regardless of however you choose to buy your wedding bands, our recommendation is that you start looking about 3-4 months before your wedding day and have them in hand a month before. This will leave for extra time should your rings take longer to ship or maybe just don’t fit right on your finger anymore.
