My wedding is this August, and I was wondering if giving her a ring is a good or bad idea. She pointed out that she absolutley loved the ring a little while back so I picked up, thinking about giving it to her Valentines Day, but then got to thinking about the wedding. Is giving her a ring as a wedding gift normal? Or would it take away from the actual wedding ring?

would you be giving it to her on the actual day of the wedding? i would save it and surprise her with it while on your honeymoon……. but hey jewerly for V-day is always nice too 🙂

What does the ring look like?
A lot of brides have their jewelry and accessories all picked out! I think if my fiance bought me a ring, I would love it – but I dont know if I would wear it for the wedding or not depending on if I already had jewelry picked out.

I think a beautiful right-hand ring is a great idea, though I can see some people thinking “well, she’s getting a wedding ring for her wedding, does she need another ring too?” It’s really your call–you can always post a picture here and see what the ladies think about it! Or you can buy her a necklace, earrings, or a bracelet that she will wear on the wedding day and will treasure forever.

Wedding gifts between bride and groom are not customary with a lot of people. I would suggest you talk together and decide if you will be trading gifts and, if so, what price range. That can help guide you to the right time to give her the ring she likes, or some other gift. I know I would have been mortified if DH had given me a wedding-day gift and I was empty-handed, but we did work out in advance that we were each giving each other half of a wedding and reception so no gifts were required.
