Planning a wedding is overwhelming. Choosing the wedding bands doesn’t have to be, if you follow these tips from Gentleman’s Gazette.
Ideally, you will be wearing your wedding band for the rest of your life, so only choose a band that you want to spend the rest of your life looking at and wearing.
For most people, a simple, unadorned yellow gold band is the way to go. However, there are different colors of gold to choose from. You can also choose other metals like platinum, palladium, tungsten, or silver. There are also grades of metal, indicating how pure they are.
There are many ways you can make your wedding band extraordinary. You can also get bands that match the bride’s engagement ring. You can get the bands inscribed. You can choose bands with edging. You can choose a different finish than the usual shiny finish. You can choose bands with intricate carvings, or that appear braided or woven together. Make sure the ring is comfortable to wear.
You also have to consider the cost. Any unusual wedding bands will cost more than traditional wedding bands. You also want to find out now what the cost of resizing or any other adjustments will be. You can often get the look you want with a cheaper metal, which makes it more affordable. This will leave you more money to pay for the other aspects of your wedding.
