We are officially under a year away from getting married and I want to know when to buy the groom’s ring? I was thinking of doing it as part of a bday present for my FI in September. I know rings do not take long to come in or size but just curious as to when other Bees purchased the groom’s ring.

We got DH’s about eight months before the wedding. I had already bought mine and he was kind of jealous so we just went ahead and ordered his.

We just bought his (and mine) on Tuesday, and we’re just over 2 months out.

We just bought mine and his last month, so 1 year out! We actually didn’t plan on it, but we would look around while getting my ring cleaned/checked and we finally found the perfect one for each of us. It was quite a decisive moment, pretty happy!
Plus, I knew it would be a bigger expense so I am happy I found it now and it will be paid off by the wedding (0% fee’s).

I saw this post and just started investigating! I hope to buy it early fall.

Thanks everyone… I’m just getting so anxious to do all this wedding stuff. And it’s nice to be able to mark things off the list so it doesn’t all come down to last minute things at the end.

We’re 3 months out and don’t have either of our wedding bands yet….doh!

@Soon2bSuttle: I’m the same way. I took FI to look at rings to figure out what he liked a few weeks ago and when the salesperson found out our wedding was in March she said “oh, you’re WAY ahead of schedule.” I’d rather be that way than run into some sort of problem in the homestretch.

we looked at them this afternoon=) we’re getting married this fall, so i need to order his asap. i don’t think the groom’s ring is something that needs to be bought right away, you don’t need it before the wedding day, unless you’re having it engraved or something. i think it falls under the ‘if you see one you want & have the cash get it’, but there’s no rush.

It was a lot harder to find a ring he liked for him than it was to find one I liked for me. I think we started looking in June or July of last year, and I think it took about 4 weeks to find one he liked. So when we finally found it, we bought it right then. But I think it should be noted that we still hadn’t set a date yet, and in fact didn’t set a date until sometime October.
