The Best Time To Buy Wedding Rings

Planning a wedding is an incredibly exciting time. There’s so much to organize, from the venue, the guest list, and the menu to the playlist, the outfits, and the invitations. With so much to plan, it can be easy to completely forget about things — like wedding rings. You know you need them, but when’s the best time to buy them?

The best time

The best time

For most couples, the best time to buy wedding rings is 3-4 months before the wedding day. But you definitely shouldn’t wait until then to start looking. Wedding rings are incredibly important and significant pieces of jewellery and you should take all the time to need to make sure you find the perfect ones before you make your purchase.

Are you planning on wearing your rings every day? Which style of band best suits your engagement ring? Which metal type do you like best? How much money can you spend? These are just some of the questions you need to answer before you start shopping for your precious ring.

To give yourself enough time to see everything that’s out there, we suggest you start looking at wedding rings six months before your big day. Giving yourself this much time means you won’t feel pressured to make a quick purchase and choose a ring that may not be the best fit for you.

One of the biggest advantages of starting your wedding ring shopping early is that you give yourself plenty of time to fix mistakes. Getting the correct ring size is a tricky thing to achieve the first time around. If the wedding band doesn’t fit, you need to give yourself plenty of time to return it to the jewellers and have it resized.

If you’re planning on designing your own ring or getting the band engraved, you need to give yourself as much time as possible. If you know you’re indecisive, you might want to start shopping for wedding bands even earlier than six months. This way you’ll have plenty of time to get the design perfect or get the wording that truly reflects your feelings.

The worst time

The worst time

The worst time to buy wedding rings is just weeks or days before the big day. There are so many things that could go wrong and ruin your wedding day that are completely beyond your control.

The jewellers may not have the ring you’ve chosen, it could take longer than estimated to create the ring, or there could be a delivery issue that means it takes longer than expected to receive the ring.

Even if you can buy the ring you want and it’s delivered on time, there are still plenty of things that could cloud your wedding day. The ring may not fit, it may not look as you hoped it would, or it could even arrive damaged. If you only bought the ring a couple of weeks or days before your big day, it’s very unlikely you’ll have enough time to fix the issues in time for when you say “I do”.

Not having enough money is one of the biggest reasons people delay buying wedding rings until the last minute. But putting off such an important purchase could mean you and your partner have to exchange vows and fake rings on your big day. This definitely isn’t a memory you want to have for the rest of your life.
