    If I had 15 months to wait I probably would have ordered it at 14 months. LOL! The only reason why I was at 6 months out is because we only have 7 months to plan. I was just excited to know what my future final set would look like. So I know how you feel.

    I don’t think it matters. If you know what you want buy it now.

    @linnylou_88:  about 9 months out. I had a similar engagement length and knew what I wanted. It was custom made so I was dying to see what it would look like IRL.

    If you’re certain that you know what you want, then there’s no reason not to go looking for it now. Gold prices were lower than they’ve been in several years the last time I looked! (if you want gold rings)

    We ordered ours about 3.5 months out and they told us it would be 6-8 weeks or so because they were custom orders. I am really glad we went quite early because the store ordered me the WRONG ring. I was deciding between 2 rings, and got a custom quote to make one of them a full eternity band instead of the half eternity that was standard. We went with the custom one and they still ordered the wrong ring (!) We were told it would be another 6 weeks and I was getting antsy because the date given was only a day or two before the wedding but they rushed the order and the ring FINALLY came the week before the big day. So relieved!

    We are at the 2 month out mark and still haven’t ordered ours.  We know what we want, but haven’t really shopped yet.  I think we’ll get custom made (same place my e-ring came from) and I think they produce it fairly quickly.  We aren’t picking out anything too crazy or extravagant.

    I get married at the end of August, and still haven’t picked out a ring. I have no idea how people make this decision. 

    You’ve got plenty of time, OP. But if you are eager (and certain you know what you want) get it!!

    I got engaged on January 16th, ordered my wedding band on March 6th… and we’re not getting married until 9/26/15.  I had a $50 off coupon from Blue Nile, and I had known for a long time exactly what ring I wanted, so I went for it!
