When to Buy a Wedding Band
Buying a wedding band might seem like an afterthought, but it’s a fun opportunity to jewelry shop with your partner and choose a design that will complement your engagement ring.
Feel like taking a Saturday and wedding band shopping together? Go for it! Not only is this a fun pre-wedding activity, it’s a great way to guide your fiancé to buy a ring that you love. Plus, there won’t be any mystery surrounding ring sizes, as you’ll both be there in person to try rings on.
Fan of surprises? That’s great, too—do your wedding band shopping separately and let the reveal happen on the wedding day. It’ll feel like a sweet and romantic gift exchange.
However you choose to buy your wedding bands, our only recommendation is that you start looking for bands about 3-4 months before the wedding day, and have them in hand a month before. This leaves you with extra time should your rings take longer than expected to size or ship.
