I have my engagement ring and my FI’s wedding band that I’m thinking about having engraved. I’m just not sure what. I think it’d be a nice little surprise. He thinks it’s not really necessary and if we want to, we can do it for our anniversary. I think it’s just easier now since we aren’t exactly wearing them. I can swap something else for my E-ring for now.
So who got an engraving? What did you have engraved on them?

We haven’t decided yet either. I am on decision overload at this point. Some good ideas for wording would be great.

We are getting ours engraved. The engravings will be a secret to both of us until the wedding day, so I have no idea what he’ll be engraving on mine.
I’m still deciding on what I want to put in his, but right now I think it will be a line from the song he’s going to sing to me at our reception. He plays the guitar and sings and I’ve always "hinted" to him that I’d love it if he sang me a song at our wedding. I’ve heard him in the basement a few times practicing one of my favorite songs, which is why I think that’s the one he’s going to sing. So, I’d like to take a line from that song and have it engraved in his ring. It’s a beautiful song and a beautiful line. Makes me smile just thinking about it!

I always said I would get my husbands band engraved with one of our inside jokes! One word: Nonrefundable Most people get sentimental things engraved but we just aren’t that couple, we have a lot of sarcastic humor 😛 More than 5 months after our wedding I haven’t been able to get the ring off his finger to get engraved…so now I have to devise a plan to do so, should be fun!

We are both having our bands engraved–I don’t know what he’s getting put on mine. I had our date and the words "I choose you" engraved on the inside. It will be a nice surprise to read on our wedding day.

Ours are engraved. My wedding band has his name in it and his wedding band will have my name and our wedding date. I couldn’t fit the date in mine and he was joking that he’ll need it so that he never forgets a) who he is married to and b) when our anniversary is!

We got our rings engraved. His says "Whither thou goest" and mine says "I will go" – it’s part of a longer Bible verse. When we were newly planning our wedding I thought it would be sweet to surprise each other with inscriptions, but then I realized once the engraving is done, it’s there forever! So, we decided together on what to engrave.

I had his ring engraved with "Love Never Fails" verse.

I had my husband’s ring engraved for his groom’s gift. It has a special inside joke and our wedding date. When he read it he got really emotional and I could tell it really meant a lot to him. 🙂 Plus it was cheap!

We have a dorky little one-syllable phrase we say to each other that i thought would be cute to engrave. It’s so cheesy, though! I was wondering if it’d be too kitschy to put in there and if he’d go "are you kdiding me?!" and laugh at me.

We didn’t get our rings engraved. I thought about it, but frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if my husband loses his ring soon (we’ve only been married a week and a half and he’s almost lost it already!). I figured it wasn’t worth the extra money if he was going to end up losing his ring. 😉

I’m thinking about adding, "I choose you" to his. This line is big to him, and is in our vows.

I really want them to be engraved. I dont think my bands will be able to as they are very thin, but the FI’s I would like to have something engraved. I have to go pick his up so I was thinking of maybe doing it as a suprise!….but dunno what…hmmmm

We are a very sarcastic, joking couple. His ring says PUT IT BACK ON and mine says DO NOT REMOVE!
