How early should you organise the ring and bands?
July 15, 2021 • 3 min read
Playing equally essential roles in your union, both the engagement ring and wedding bands are crucial to your overall wedding nuptials. While the engagement ring signifies the proposed marriage, the wedding bands symbolise your mutual eternal commitment to your joint relationship.
Although both rings are meaningful, they need to be organised ahead of time before you need them! If you plan to propose or organise your wedding, you should understand the time required to prepare both individual elements.
Make sure you are on the ball and prepared well in time by reading below.
When to organise the engagement ring
As an exciting moment in your life, proposing is the official starting point of your life together. This means you will want the proposal to go as planned without a hitch to retain the tremendous excitement and surprise.
For a smooth proposal, make sure you have organised your engagement ring well in time before the actual proposal date. To be safe, we recommend starting the process at least three months before the day.
This is especially important if you are looking for custom diamond engagement rings. Your jeweller should be given enough time to create the perfect ring. Countless alterations and deciding on design choices take time and effort when creating a custom engagement ring.
If you are looking for a pre-made design, it is still advised to start the process of purchasing a ring three months before. Although you are not creating a bespoke ring, you still need ring size alterations to fit your partner.
To put it in perspective, because of the delicate quality nature of the jewellery, even the slightest change can take multiple weeks. This makes time essential.
When to get the wedding rings
Fantastic news – you’ve proposed, they said yes and now you’ve got a wedding to plan! Because many elements need to be considered when planning a wedding, organising your wedding bands have a more critical nature.
You need two rings rather than one for a wedding, making the search more challenging than the initial engagement ring hunt. Also, this time, you have a set date to work with that services and guests are depending on.
Unlike a proposal, your wedding is a date you can’t push and must work with. As a featured asset in the all-important ceremony, you need your wedding rings present and ready to seal the deal.
Because of the urgency to have your wedding bands ready in the time for the big day, we recommend organising your rings 4 months beforehand. This allows both bridal party members adequate time to browse for the right design and have the sizing adjusted as needed.
