6 Mistakes Couples Make When Choosing Their Wedding Bands

While you’ll most likely only wear your wedding dress once, and the flowers and cake certainly don’t stay fresh forever, the wedding bands you choose will be with you for a lifetime. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye out for these six mistakes when shopping for your rings.

1. Waiting until the last minute.

While it might be tempting to wait until you’re closer to the wedding day to shop for rings, give yourself more time. This will ensure that you don’t have to settle and you’ll also have the option of having something specially designed for you.

2. Not setting a budget.

Like everything else about the big day, you want to sit down as a couple and be realistic about what you can afford to spend on your rings.

3.  Choosing something too trendy.

Trends come and go, and it can be easy to get caught up in what the celebrities are currently wearing. But unlike many of those stars, you’ll be wearing your ring for years to come, so it’s best to choose something timeless that also goes well with your engagement ring.

4. Forgetting about your lifestyles.

Do you love to be outdoors, rock climbing or hiking? Does either or both of you work with your hands? Do you both like to go to the gym often? These are all things you should think about before choosing a ring--you don’t want something too delicate that can be easily damaged.

5. Thinking you have to match.

If you and your groom have different taste, don’t worry--you do not need to have matching wedding bands. Jewelry should be a reflection of your unique styles and personalities, and since this is something you’ll both be wearing every day, you want to make sure it’s something you both truly love.

6. Buying online.

While it is cheaper to buy online, this is an item you definitely want to see in person before making the purchase. You’ll want to visit a reputable jeweler (ask family and friends for recommendations) who will be able to guide you in the right choice and supply you with a high-quality ring. If you must buy online, make sure it’s with a site with great reviews and a solid return policy.
