Laurenr8907:  I think if you wear them for your wedding and pictures only, then lock them in the safe, chances are you’ll be fine. Just make sure they’re insured before you go. I’d wear the standins for the rest of your trip once the wedding and pictures are over though.

I agree with lavenderstone: I would bring them for the ceremony at least and then keep them locked up. I would want to use my real rings for the ceremony for sentimental purposes. FWIW, I honeymooned in Jamaica, wore my real rings and kept them on the whole time… In the ocean, pool, etc. As long as they are the right fit and the stone(s) secured properly it should be fine. The first thing they tell you is not to leave the resort for safety’s sake, and I felt completely at ease the whole time I was there, but that is up to you.

I think the risk of losing your rings or having them stole is probably the same or less on the resort as it would be back at home. So unless you’re planning to keep your rings in a safe all the time at home, I wouldn’t worry about wearing them while your at your destination resort. I agree it’s probably better to leave them in the room if you’re swimming, especially if they’re loose, but I’d wear them when you’re not swimming and not worry about it.

Laurenr8907:  I really think you’re over worrying about things.  Especially if you plan on staying in the resort.  I oculdn’t imagine being married in the real deal just to take them off and wear fakes.  Or getting married in the fakes because I was worried about the real ones being stolen.

I got married in Los Cabos, Mexico at the “Dreams” resort and we took my real rings. I also brought the $5000.00 watch I gave to my husband for his wedding gift and had no issues. As long as there’s a safe in the hotel room, I’d say you’re fine. Of course there is always the risk of something getting stolen, but that’s true at a local wedding as well.

Im actually vote no, you shouldn’t take them. Even on the resort there’s things that could go wrong and why have that added stress? My friend who honeymooned in Jamaica did the same thing- bought a stand in for the trip and wore that instead. I know that not being able to wear your real rings right away really sucks, but I personally would not want to face the chance of something going awry- or having to worry about that the whole honeymoon when its better to be relaxing and enjoying!
