    I don’t see how you could get them too early, except that you’ll want to wear them all the time. But it’s a necessary item for both of you, so no reason to postpone checking it off the list. 

    We got ours back in June and July, I think. May and June? I don’t know. But we got engaged in February and are getting married next week, so it had to happen at some point.

    we got ours about 18 months before but had to be special ordered so brought them home 15-16 months before our wedding. They were on a super sale so why not

    We bought our wedding bands 3 months before our wedding. We are getting married in 18 days.

    @Pokemon:  Same here- they discountinued the wedder to my engagement ring and it was on super sale so I bought it when I saw it because when I went into the jeweller they said they could only order it up until the end of the week. I didn’t want the hassle of trying to find something else that I liked and which worked with my engagement ring!

    Mine was custom-made from family diamonds, and after a friend had a horror story with a custom ring not being right a week before the wedding, I wanted plenty of time.  Plus at the time metal prices had dipped a smidge (as much as they’ve dipped in like the last two years, anyway) so I played that game a little and came out ahead.

    Turns out it was perfect the first time, and FI ordered a Tungsten one, so they’ve been sitting in our safe for over 6 months now, haha.
