You have the perfect engagement ring. You said yes to the dress, scoured local salons and Instagram feeds for the best hairdresser and makeup artist. Your shoes would make even Carrie Bradshaw green with envy. What’s left?
The wedding band can be overlooked, compared to the engagement ring. However, both the wedding band and the engagement ring play an equally significant role in defining your wedding set look. Ultimately, both the engagement ring and the wedding band are important symbols for you and your partner’s love and admiration for one another.
Here are our top 7 tips for finding the perfect wedding band
1. Don’t Forget It’s a Set
Like salt and pepper and peanut butter and jelly your engagement ring and your wedding band should be better together. Both rings should complement each other. Although a wedding band may be lovely on its own, it’s imperative to consider how it will look on your finger- next to your engagement ring. Make sure you bring your engagement ring when you shop for your wedding band- so you can see how the rings look together.
2. Consider the Long Term
Yes, a ring may be perfectly in style today, but fashion perpetually grows and evolves. Make sure you find a band that you know you’ll love in several decades when styles have evolved.
3. Don’t Forget the Details
Added features like engravings and diamonds can really bring your engagement ring to the next level. Ready to take your wedding band look to the next level? Our team of experts is here to help you build the perfect custom wedding band.
4. Leave Lots of Time
As with all of the best things in life, shopping for wedding bands can take time. Although we are happy to help in any timeframe, leaving plenty of time before your big day ensures that you’ll have a chance to find the perfect wedding ring. We recommend selecting a wedding ring 3-4 months before your wedding, especially if you’re opting for a custom wedding band.
5. Think About Your Lifestyle
Are you someone who uses their hands a lot for their jobs or hobbies? It may be better to look at more subtle bands that won’t get in the way as compared to a bulkier band.
6. Shake it up!
You’ll be the one wearing this ring for the rest of your life! Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box with your wedding band to get something you’ll cherish forever. Loving the mixed metal look?
