@NavyBride2013:  I would order ASAP. There may not be enough time, depending what you want. You can alwyas use your engagement ring as your wedding band for the ceremony and get a band later. You can have your priesr/rabbi/whatever bless it later if that matters to you.

@NavyBride2013:  Yikes. I’d visit jewelry stores now to see what they suggest and to get an idea of timelines. Maybe they can rush something for you?

@NavyBride2013:  get on it!  I tried to order my guy’s 6 weeks out and the one he wanted (custom-made in eastern Europe, on Etsy) wouldn’t be ready until a month after our wedding 🙁  We found another similar one that was shipped a week later, though.  So obviously it varies, but better safe than sorry.

I went to the store on Monday and picked them up Saturday of the same week. I would give it a couple weeks tho incase something goes wrong

I would get on it.

We’re marrying in December and just ordered my ring yesterday. I tried on a bunch of bands, and the one that worked best was in 18k gold only, so we had to special order platinum to match my engagement ring. They said it would take about 4 weeks.

@NavyBride2013:  You’re definitely cutting it close!! Ours took 6 weeks(mine was only custom due to my ring size, 3.75)

Though if you find something in-store they may only take a few hours to a day to size it, so you may get lucky. Good luck :o)

I would do it now, just incase there is manufacturing time and/or you need to return/exchange the rings.

@NavyBride2013:  Definitely get it ordered ASAP.  You may have trouble finding something and if you’re going custom it may take 1-2 months to complete it and for you to be happy with it.

STAT! DH’s only took 4 weeks to come in but mine took almost 8 weeks (it was custom so I’m sure that didn’t help). I think DH’s would’ve come in sooner but he has giant fingers so the jeweler had to special order it. Seriously though, you and your FI should order them pretty soon otherwise you’re gonna be stressing over it and it’s gonna come down to the wire. Save yourself the aggrivation!
