We are having a small fall wedding, and I was wondering, if you did buy your fiances’ ring…how soon did you buy it before the wedding?? We went looking for my wedding band already, just to get some ideas, and he picked out the band he wanted. He has been commenting about how he wishes guys had engagement rings (lol), so he could show everyone he’s engaged (women assume he’s single). Did your SO wear his ring before the wedding?? How soon did you get his ring??

@Merinda1994: It just arrived in the mail last night. Mine arrived two weeks ago. The wedding in in May. Neither of us will be wearing our wedding bands in public before we are married.

@Merinda1994: We bought his at the same time we bought my band. But he wasn’t picky and only looked at 2 stores..lol

Lucked up and found my hubbys wedding band on Etsy, it was acutally an estate piece that would have cost us way more than $500 had we bought it brand new. We ordered it approximatley three months before the wedding and no, he did not wear it before the wedding, just like I did not wear mine before the wedding.. Having said that, we did try them on several times prior to the I’do’s.

@Merinda1994: We actually were going to buy one two weeks before the wedding and his grandmother ended up giving us his grandfathers ring which was so beautiful!

we picked out his ring at the same time that we picked out my rings because the jewelry store threw his ring in for free. it was about a year and a half before the wedding.
he didn’t wear his wedding ring until we were married, but he did wear another ring that i gave him for our 1 year anniversary. he gave me a promise ring for christmas and had said he wanted something that would show everyone that he belonged to me, haha.

My e-ring is due for a cleaning/inspection in May so we are just gonna get his than, especially if he chooses something with diamonds. Anything with Diamonds needs to be inspected/cleaned for the warranty to be vaild so might as well do it all at once so I don’t have to make multiple trips to the store. We’ll be about 5 months away from the wedding when we get it. He doesn’t wear rings due to his job as its a policy not to wear any jewellry so it doesn’t get caught in a machine.

I bought his about 6 months before when I got my ring cleaned and it was on sale! I know a lot of people wait until the month of to buy them. FI would never wear a ring before the wedding, too untraditional.

Merinda1994: I got my FI a claddagh ring for his right hand a few years ago for his b’day. He never wears it. I suggested he wear it on his left hand so he could “get use to how it feels”…and people know he’s off the market lol. Maybe you could get him some kind of stand in ring in the mean time?

Merinda1994: Aaww, it sounds like you have a sweet FI. Mine made the same remarks, about not having an “engagement” ring for men hahah, and he can’t wait to wear his wedding band finally. Anyhow, going back to the topic…. We got our wedding bands at the same time back in October, got them 2 weeks later, so he has tried it couple of times at home just for few moments but not wearing it for good until the big day. 🙂

We ordered both of our wedding bands about four months before the wedding. His took two weeks to get, and then I had to hide it until the wedding because he kept trying to sneak it out of the box to wear it. Haha.

We are planning an Aug 2015 wedding, but there was a great deal at the jewelry store we prefer – we ended up getting $200 off our bands. Both our bands have been ordered, and will sit in our vault until the wedding (with some try-ons beforehand, of course).

I plan on ordering my SO’s ring this week, so that’ll be 4 months before our wedding!

Our wedding is in July. Just yesterday we went out searing for my band (it’s been an issue, ha ha) and we found his! (I think we found mine as well somewhere else.)
He will not be wearing it early.
