Cheesy or not cheesy to engrave?
Im not even sure what to have engraved on his. I was thinking our wedding date, or “I love you”, or my nickname for him.
What are you engraving?
Or is this a dumb idea? Lol

My Husband has my name inside of his along with our wedding date, and I have his in mine and the date. It’s simple but sweet. 🙂

I don’t think it’s dumb at all! I have my grandpas wedding band and I love the fact that it has my grandmas name + date and year engraved into it. It’s dated to 1951, and it feels nice that people will be able to look at that ring in 2051 and still get a glimpse of their story!
We’re engraving our rings with our initials, town where we get married, and the date:
“P&I, Älvsbyn, 2013-08-03” in my ring and “I&P, Älvsbyn, 2013-08-03” in FI’s ring (his initial first in my ring, the opposite in his).

@MissMudge: I got my FI’s ring engraved. He wanted to feel special since he spent so much on my ring lol so I thought this was the best way.
We had “LOVE NEVER FAILS” engraved inside of his ring. 1 Corinthians 13 is an ongoing theme within our relationship (the scripture that defines love) so it’s befitting. It’s part of the 8th verse and he read verses 4-7 to me when he proposed.
I also think it’s a good reminder when he gets really mad at me. lol

Did you ladies get your wedding band or er engraved? I have two wedding bands and an ER.

@MissMudge: Not cheesy! I had FI’s ring engraved and he picked it up while I was at a conference, and was so touched and happy with what I had wrote and just loved it. My ring set is very thin and I have been told too small to engrave :C we’ll see about someday…I think it is a great sentiment and you should go for it! 😀

I love engraving! I got a cheap $30 tungsten ring just to have an engraving since the wb i want doesn’t allow for it, neither did my e-ring.
When I get my wb it will kinda look like this.
His mangagement ring and my tngsten ring say “My Hunnie” because that is what we always call each other – Hunnie Bee & Hunnie Bear.
I think his wedding band will also say “My Hunnie.”

Just remember the best man will probably read whatever you write!
I’m seriously considering having two sorts of engraving on my wedding band.
Something like this on the outside:
And on the inside I’d like it to say “Mrs FI’s surname”.

Why would engraving be cheesy? It’s totally not 🙂
If you want to get something engraved, go for it. It’s traditional in many places to do names or initials and the date, but there are plenty of other options – basically whatever you and Fiance would like. The limiting factor is generally the size of the ring.

@MissMudge: We didn’t, but if I did, I think I’d do the wedding date.

not at all!! We’re having both of our band engraved with the date 9/21/13, I wish there was room for more, but in mine there really isnt. I also need to have my ering sized down so I am having them put the date we got engaged on that 12/12/12 🙂

I think it’s super sweet! Fiance and I were going to do it, but the rings we chose actually don’t allow for it. So, sadly, we won’t be. I love the idea, though! My high school class ring is the same one my mother wore, and both of our initials are engraved on the inside. It’s really meaningful to me.

My fiance and I wanted to have our rings engraved, but we are not a sappy love kind of couple so we are having “To infinity…” on his and “…and beyond!” on mine.
I had a friend who decided with her now husband to have their rings engraved, but it would be a surprise as to what the engraving was… she had “Put it back on.” engraved on his.
I think you can have whatever you want engraved, whatever your couple style is 🙂

Idea – it just occured to me that engraving would be a fantastic anniversary gift 😀
Also it really is only for your benefit so you can have as much fun as you want. I would!

I think it’s a lovely idea. I have my Mom’s ring that gives their wedding date (1952) and names. Love it!
