There are several things to keep in mind when deciding how early you should buy a wedding band. You need ample time to browse and select the perfect design. Then there is the added time of customization, resizing, and engraving to account for. It can get overwhelming pretty quickly. That's why we've put together a list of things to keep in mind when buying a wedding band.
You should start your search around four months before you’re due to tie the knot. Ideally, you want to be in possession of the bands at least a month before the wedding date.
Pick The Ideal Ring
Check out the current wedding band trends and compare how they align with your partner's taste, style, and aesthetic. You and your partner may opt to shop together, or separately for the added element of surprise. Also make sure to take into account the engagement ring style, if they plan to stack the rings, you’ll want to find a style that aligns well.
You can always browse rings together. This may dispel some of the excitement that comes with a grand reveal, but it ensures you'll pick a ring you both will cherish and adore.
Customize Your Ring
Customizing rings adds a personal touch and makes the band a one-of-kind piece of art. Your options for customization are practically endless, from adding gemstones to engravings.
You can have a ring created from scratch, which could take one or two months to complete. Mounting a diamond or gemstone may take a few days. Engravings can be done in a few short moments or take over a month.
Get The Size Just Right
You can't slip on the ring if it doesn't fit. Resizing can be done quickly, but it depends on the type of metal and design. Sometimes it can take up to a month, depending on the jeweler, so communication is vital if you're keen on having a ring that fits ready for the moment.
Time To Ship/Be Produced
In-stock weddings bands are the quickest option. You can have them a few days after making your selection, though the usual timeframe is one to two weeks.
In rare cases, you may be able to walk out of the store with the ring the same day. The lengthiest option is custom rings. These can take between four to six weeks to ship.
