Your Essential Guide to Choose the Right Wedding Band
With all your big day planning, you may leave your wedding band shopping to the last minute. Careful consideration should be done to choose the right wedding band that fits both your loving personalities and unique styles. You may find that your wedding band style needs to be personalized or you may choose to purchase from pre-designed band styles.
Choosing a wedding band style can be a complex task. Especially today, when designs are countless.
Choose Type of Metal or Gemstones
The very first thing to decide is whether you want a traditional metal wedding band design or a band with sparkling diamonds or gemstones. Do you and your someone special wants to wear matching wedding bands? If so, there is a possibility that you will pick metal bands for your special day.
If not, there are countless options available today in jewelry designs. Many women and men choose wedding bands with beautiful diamonds or other gemstones. These designs are available as wedding bands with gemstones placed with a more elaborate pattern.
Match Your Wedding Band with Your Engagement Ring Design
Instead of matching your wedding band with your partner's engagement ring design, women prefer to match their wedding bands to their engagement ring designs. If you want to wear your engagement ring and wedding band together on the same finger, it is quite important to know how they look and fit together and feel on your finger.
Today, many engagement ring designs come with the matching bands. Even if your particular ring design doesn’t, you may select a wedding band style that fits well, depending on your engagement ring design.
You can also choose customized wedding bands for your special day. If you don’t have a matching wedding band, you can choose a ring with a twist design, which has dips that fit solitaires and other engagement ring designs perfectly. Choose the wedding band style that works well with your ring.
Select the Right Ring Size
Choosing the right ring size is important to ensure the right fit. While one can resize if required, this can take your time and can harm your beautiful ring design if done in the wrong way. You can choose the right band size on the very first try in different ways: having one of her present ring sizes and measuring it with the help of a jeweler, asking one of her close friends or family members if they know it, telling her directly about the band purchase, or visiting a jewelry store with her and getting her ring size measured properly.
Engrave Your Band Design
These days couples engrave their wedding bands in a unique way. You can engrave your initials, your wedding date or a loving message. You can pick the option of hand engraving, which is long-lasting and looks beautiful, and comes in different fonts and sizes. If your engraved band message is long or the space is limited on your wedding band design, you can go with the laser engraving option.
Who buys the bands for the special moment? Generally, the groom chooses the wedding band for the bride, and the bride buys the wedding band for the groom. This can be seen as an amazing romantic gesture—a token of care, love, and commitment.
But you can simply decide however you want to purchase your bands. If you and your partner have combined money for the wedding day planning, you might buy your beautiful wedding bands together. Of course, it is up to you and your loving partner how you want to buy your jewelry.
Always check the quality of your wedding band. Check the availability of two signs. One for the jewelry manufacturer’s trademark and second your quality mark for the material type of your wedding band.
When you are picking your wedding band design, always remember that you will be wearing it every day for the rest of your life. Make sure to pick the design that's smooth, comfortable and is a perfect fit for you and your partner.
You book your wedding venue for a single day. But, a pair of wedding bands you pick for your whole life. You will be wearing your band day in and day out, so it is important to be extra careful while buying your perfect wedding band design.
