You can get it whenever. My wedding is in August, my band is being custom made, and I started the process the middle of February. It’s something I can check off the to do list now and not have to worry about later.

I would say get it when you are sure you found the right one.  😉

I’ve heard you’re supposed to order your wedding rings 3-5 months before the wedding to ensure there’s no problems.  We ordered ours at about 9 months because we found rings we loved.

We ordered our bands about 2 months ahead of time.

I’d do it early if I were in your shoes just so you know for certain it’d be there in time. We did ours like 6 weeks prior I think. But I’m a size 6 so it didn’t need to be custom made.

I don’t think it matters when. I have my band, and my wedding is a year away. (I wear it when I do sports, it’s very sturdy). Also, say if you inherited a ring from your grandmother or whoever… then you would have the ring the entire time, waiting for you to use it.  Whenever you have found the right one!

We wanted to pay off as many “wedding things” as we could before we have to pay the big stuff closer to the day so we got ours a few months ago.

I ordered mine in January for a March wedding – it took about 6 weeks from ordering to engraving to get it in my hands.

I am getting mine custom made as well. I ordered it and sent in my engagement ring to have it matched on Feb 6 and it’s now March 8 and no word yet on it! My poor finger is so naked without my engagement ring. I am not terribly concerned as long as it gets back before my wedding date!
