Ring A Ding Ding: You’re Getting Married!

 Ring A Ding Ding: You’re Getting Married!

087

You’ve got the dress ordered, the venue is booked, and your dream wedding is actually coming together! But, wait, what about the rings? When I was getting married, I literally felt dizzy at the choice of wedding rings on offer. It seemed to me to be a pretty important decision to make, especially as I’m planning to wear my ring for the rest of my life. Before you go into major panic mode, my handy guide is at hand…

  • Keep that ring on your finger by making sure you get the right size. It’s never a good idea to guess this, as there is a wide range of fits that are very much tailored to the individual. Visit a good jeweller to get measured for your ring, and you’re off to a great start!
  • Dare to be different by going for russian wedding rings. These are absolutely beautiful, and traditionally presented as a three bands that are interlinked. The three bands are said to represent the relationship between you and your new husband in times gone by, the present day, and in the future.
  • Go for classic chic with a single band in white or rose gold. This style is gorgeously understated, and perfect for gals who prefer subtle sophistication to OTT bling. Yellow gold has become less fashionable in recent years, but it’s the perfect choice if you’re a traditionalist.
  • Opt for something out of the ordinary with a wedding ring that features an usual material like this one that has an actual dinosaur bone in it! If that’s a little wacky for your taste, try a ring that is embedded with your birth stone. This makes it a more individual choice, which is great if you’re like me and hate to blend in with the crowd!
  • Does it have to match your engagement ring? Jewellery experts don’t think so: they’ve said that your engagement ring is a separate piece given as a promise, and the wedding ring is given to celebrate the union between you and your partner. Because each ring has a different purpose, there’s no need to worry about matching the two.
  • The size of band is an important consideration, particularly as it will be worn alongside your engagement ring. You don’t want either ring to be eclipsed by the other, so try to choose a wedding ring that is similar in size. Try the ring on with your engagement ring to decide whether it is the right choice for you.

Choosing your wedding ring is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, so allow plenty of time to think about what you want. Don’t follow a friend of mine who left it to the last minute and had a meltdown when she realised she had to borrow a ring on the day! Go online and have a good look through all your potential options, and visit jewellery shops to try your ideas on for size. Most importantly, enjoy the process of finding your ring: you’re creating memories to last a lifetime!
