@AlexisB:  I like the classic engraving like you stated. Traditionally, in a monogram, the wife’s initial comes first, so I would put your name first, although I don’t really think it would matter for something like this.

My great-grantmother’s wedding band has the date engraved, and it is styled as 09-27-2014 (That’s my wedding date, not my great-grandmother’s, obviously 🙂 Her ring also has both of their first and middle names instead of initials, so it looks like this: first middle to first middle 09-27-2014

I think it’s very pretty and classic, and it is probably what I will put on our rings

@AlexisB:  I love that style of engraving – so timeless.  I would probably do “8.24.13”, since I like how it looks with the periods and here in the US the month always comes first.  And yes, I think usually the woman’s name comes first.

My husband didn’t have particularly strong feelings on a lot of wedding-related issues, but he really wanted just my first name engraved in his ring.  So I had the same done in my ring (which is like 70 years old – it was my grandmother’s).

Haha, don’t mind my cat photobombing here…

@AlexisB:  My dad has the following in his band: “ABC + DEF 12-06-68”

In my FH’s band, I’d like to have it engraved. He’d like “Forever and Always.” I’d like to add the date too.

My wedding band is engraved with the original owner’s date… “LWH to DMP 6-16-35 Truest of Love” in really pretty script.

My engagement ring says “I got dosed by you” (lyrics from our favourite Red Hot Chili Peppers song) and both our initials. 

My wedding band has our wedding date on it.  Unfortunately, I messed up and the scripts don’t match…  not a big deal, though.

FI is a Star Wars nerd so I am going to surprise him by having my ring engraved “I love you” and his with “I know”.  He saw it on a Buzzfeed article I was reading and loved it.

@AlexisB:  My great-grandmother’s ring is a size 4, and it fit in hers. It takes up most of the inside, but it does fit and does not look funny or anything 🙂 I wear a 4.75 and I was worried that it wouldn’t fit in mine, but after seeing hers, I’m hoping it will. I guess it depends on how long your names are, too. My middle name is 9 letters, so it might be a squeeze.
