That’s right, girls … after the sparkle of your new engagement ring lights up your life, put some thought into the wedding band that you’ll soon wear on the same finger.
As nuptial traditions go, a man will ask his lady to marry with an engagement ring. Upon their wedding day, the groom gives his future wife a wedding ring while the bride gives her future husband a wedding ring in return. A Kodak moment for sure, this ritual is a timeless symbol of love and commitment to each other.
It’s the how, the what and the when before the big day that may have some brides in a tizzy:
- How do you choose a wedding ring?
- What style of ring is right for you?
- Do you want to choose your own ring? Or do you want him to choose it for you?
- When do you choose a wedding ring?
- Do you want to choose his wedding ring?
Today’s modern bride wants a women’s wedding ring that she loves and doesn’t mind wearing all the time. While the wedding band doesn’t have to be a perfect match with the engagement ring, when she already has a beautiful custom designed engagement ring (especially from Indy Facets), it’s only fitting to select a Bridal Ring Set – two perfectly complementary rings for the bride that includes the engagement ring and a women’s wedding band that matches its uniqueness and beauty, which are meant to be worn together on the left hand.
When it comes to choosing the right wedding ring, every woman is different. She can choose among a plethora of different band types:
Classic – For the bride who prefers the timeless beauty of traditional-style rings
Vintage Inspired – For the bride who wants the craftsmanship and detail to evoke romantic eras of the past.
Eternity – For the bride who wants the diamonds or gemstones to wrap completely around the finger, so the band sparkles and shimmers from every angle.
Nature Inspired – For the bride who loves the graceful lines and true beauty of nature.
Modern – For the bride who enjoys contemporary design and unusual materials.
Add custom jewelry design to the mix and this list is limited only by your imagination. While bridal ring sets are designed for the bide who loves the perfect symmetry and appearance of two matching rings, the unique look of mismatched rings is becoming increasingly popular. Stacking rings creates a stunning look and can you can wear several of your most cherished bands at once, whether they be diamond rings or wedding bands of different styles, precious metals or gemstones. One reason for the popularity of this style trend is its versatility. Over time, many women choose to wear her wedding band (or her engagement ring) alone, on the other hand or on a different finger.
Regardless of what you choose for your wedding ring, trying on different designs and styles of rings is a great way to help you decide.
Chances are, your intended may have chosen your wedding band when he chose your engagement ring, especially if the band matches your ring exactly. If he hasn’t and you’d like to select your wedding band yourself – perhaps it’s time to go shopping together. This gives you a chance to decide on his wedding ring, too. Of course, you could always choose to be surprised by your fiancé’s selection, especially if you love your engagement ring.
You should purchase your wedding bands three to four months prior to the wedding to give yourselves enough time to find the ones you’re happy with.
