The rings are one of the most important parts ofyour wedding ceremony. You’ll exchange them as a symbol of your marriage and love, and then wear them for as long as you’re married. So choosing the best rings for both of you isn’t something that you should do in a rush. You should think carefully about what you both want. Look at your different options before you pick anything. Keep reading to find out about some of the things you need to take into consideration when you’re shopping for your wedding rings.
Wedding rings are meant to be worn every day, but this isn’t always practical. Many people work with their hands in some capacity, and wearing a ring might not be convenient. If you have to take your ring off a lot, you might consider having one but wearing it on a chain instead. You should also think about the material you choose and its practicality. Some metals may be too hard to remove quickly in an emergency. Others may be too soft to withstand daily use in a labor-intensive environment. You don’t have to choose gold or platinum. Other options include silver, tungsten, wood or even silicone.
Plain Bands or Stones
You might have chosen an engagement ring with an impressive stone in it. However, perhaps you’re looking for something a little more subtle for your wedding band. You can choose to have a plain band, or you might want to have a stone or several stones in it. Some of the things that might affect your choice include price, practicality and taste. A wedding band with diamonds in it might feel too flashy for you, as well as being more expensive. If you want some extra embellishment, you could also consider having an inscription on the inside outside of the ring.
Matching or His and Hers
There’s another decision you need to make when you’re choosing rings. If you’re both going to have a ring, will they be matching or different? With the many ring options you have available, you could have two that are almost the same. You might want to choose rings that are similar but different, or you could have two rings that are nothing alike. You might end up with very different rings if one of you needs something more practical, for example.
Follow the Trends or Go Your Own Way
You need to decide if you’re going to take inspiration from the current styles or do your own thing. If you don’t like anything you see in the stores, you can create your own ring. Many jewelers offer a customer service so that you can put together a ring that suits your taste. They can help you design something beautiful that you’ll be proud to wear on your finger every day. But keep in mind that this will cost you more to do.
Choosing wedding rings may only be one of the many decisions you need to make, but it’s one of the most important. Pick them out together to get rings that you love.
Happy planning! Xoxo
