    Not until long after we were married. Maybe eight or so months? I had a tiny silver ring that was a stand-in the day of our pretty princess day, but I didn’t get an actual wedding band until much later. My husband and I ordered his about a week before and he got it a day after, so when we were legally married we had no ring ceremony, but we did when we had the ceremony back home.

    We bought ours about four months before the wedding, when the ring he wanted went on sale.

    We ordered our custom rings a year before the wedding and it took a few months for them to come in. Only problem with ordering early is you might want to keep trying them on!

    We bought ours about 9 months before the wedding day. The ring I wanted was on sale and he was eager to get the sparkly shopping out of the way so we could focus on the “real” planning.

    If you know that’s exactly what you want, go for it! We had mine custom made, ordered them about a month ago, and we can pick them up this coming Friday for our September wedding 🙂

    lovelee1:  I can’t think of any reason why you shouldn’t get it if you are certain that’s the ring you want. I say go for it

    lovelee1:  we bought ours roughly 1 year before-my ring was on sale from £2,000 to roughly £990-to much of a saving to pass up. Worked out well also as leading up to the day there are lots of bills to settle!
