We’re early November, but we just ordered FI’s band this week.  We’re using his grandmother’s band for myself, but will need to get it resized.

We didn’t need to get it so early but we have the money and we know what he wants.

We are also purchasing them in August. 

We haven’t included our rings as part of our actual wedding budget, because FI has a credit card with the jeweler which would give us X months interest free to pay off any purchases.  Therefore, while we want to make sure we have them in time (obviously), we also wanted to delay buying until as late as possible because don’t want the stress of paying for them until after the wedding.

I ordered FH’s ring a little over a week ago and it came last week. I also bought mine (FH was working and sent me with the credit card) last Sunday and it came back from sizing today!

We bought mine 2 weeks ago, because there was a sale going on.  We will be getting his within the next month or two.

We’re taking my engagement/wedding set in to get a wax cast and begin the building process at the end of July by request of the jeweler who is re-casting it in white gold.

We’re going at the beginning of next month to choose his and order it just so we have it and don’t have to worry. We lose track of time easily, so we want to get stuff out of the way.

My FI suprised me with getting the wedding band that matches the engagement ring.  We will go shopping for his simple band in a week or so.

Ugh, I have no idea. Soon? I’m pretty sure we’ll order them from the same place my ring is from (Blue Nile), and I would like to have them by at least early September.

Good question. Probably July or August so that we don’t lose them. FI is dying to wear his so I will probably have to hide it!

mine was a set but his we already bought.  They are holding it though until I have mine redipped and soldered together. They will get them in the Monday before the wedding and we will pick them up the Friday before we get married.

We bought ours on a huge mother’s day sale at the start of may. We had a lot of other discounts that would have applied any time of the year, but I was chompin at the bit to get that purchase made. I will need to redip my ering, have them sized, have the two bands soldered to the ering, and possibly some engravings. So we will do all that stuff within a couple weeks of leaving for the islands.
