    I got my ring late August or early September. Our wedding was mid November. So about 3ish months prior to our I-Do’s.

    DH bought my band pretty early on because the prices on diamonds and rings kept going up and he figured he might as well buy it before it shot up anymore. His was quite inexpensive (no diamonds or anything) and we just got our at the same time out of convenience.

    We haven’t picked out the bands yet.  When we got my ring sized, I asked the jeweler about wedding bands and he said we need to order them 6 weeks before the wedding.

    We bought mine on sale on Black Friday, so nine months out, and FI’s in January, I think? So seven months out. Mine was a matching set, so we bought it when it was probably cheapest. I found his and bought it ASAP.

    We bought ours shortly after our engagement – because the store where my fiancee bought (and designed) my engagement ring was having a “no tax weekend” and we decided it was worth it to take advantage of no tax on such a big purchase.

    We got engaged in December 2012, bought bands in early February, and are getting married in late April. FH’s came in within two weeks. Six weeks later and my band isn’t in yet and neither is my engagement ring from being matched to the band. I am not a happy camper. I think the earlier the better but we are on a time crunch.

    • Wedding: October 2014 - Ranch

    FI bought mine as a set. He fell in love with my engagement ring, but the jeweler would only sell it as a set, so he did. I always wanted to go shopping for our wedding bands together and I always wanted a very thin, plain wedding band, whereas my wedding band has diamonds on all three sides so we plan on going shopping later on for his wedding band and my plain one, He will give me the diamond wedding band at the civil wedding and the plain one at our religious wedding. I wanted a stacked set so it all works out!

    I chose my e-ring and wedding band at the same time, before DH formally proposed, because I wanted to know exactly what my rings would look like together before DH purchased my e-ring. He purchase both rings at the same time, about a week or two after I chose them.

    I purchased his wedding band a few few months prior to our wedding.

    • Wedding: September 2015

    I’m not getting married until the end of September 2015, but I got a $50-off coupon from Blue Nile, so I ordered my wedding band a few months ago.  $50 off of a $185 ring ain’t chump change!

    No clue when we’ll be getting my fiancé’s ring – we’ll probably wait until early 2015 to go try things on and see what he likes.  He’s got pretty simple taste so I don’t think it’ll take long.
