Any time! I started looking a few months after we got engaged, because I was curious. It took me a long time to find something I actually liked (I’m not kidding, I looked for 6 months!). I bought it on the spot! And we’re 10 months away… so I never think it’s too early 🙂

Not sure b/c you are getting a custom ring… We are just getting plain white gold bands… maybe with some engraving.

I’m pretty obsessive too… I like to get things out of the way early.  I’m getting married 6/26/11.  We already checked out bands to get an idea of what we like 🙂 But I and am trying to wait until just after Christmas to seriously look.

Really wedding bands are a part of planning that can be done at any time! We got our rings in the beginning of June for our August wedding. This was plenty of time for us – we both just have plain sterling silver bands for the time being  until we can afford something nicer for both of us. You may want to look into how long a custom band would take though.

I agree with anytime. We got mine in May and FI’s in June for our October wedding, but we just picked them from a store.

we started looking a little after we got engaged. i am going to order them next month but thats because i may gain weight with the pregnancy and FI is talking about upgrading my ring.

Choosing mine was easy since there was a matching band for my e-ring. And my FI already found the one he likes. We decided at 10 months out to put them on layaway to make our lives easier. Since we have a lot of upcoming expenses, we decided 10 monthly payments at the jewler’s would be easier than paying them in full a month before the big day. As mentioned, its never too early. Good luck!
