I don’t think it is too early to start looking, at all. We got ours 5 months before our wedding. You are going to want to make sure you get something that you will love and will fit next to your ering, so looking for something sooner, rather than later is usually a good thing.

Some rings have to be ordered in so I’d say sooner is better.  My wedding is April 2 and my wedding band was due to come in March 15 which was a bit close for my comfort. Luckily it came in a bit early and I have it now!

Might as well get it when you think of it.  We ordered FI’s band about 8 months in advance, because we got it online and weren’t sure how much we’d like it, so we wanted to give ourselves plenty of time to find another.  My band was custom-made to match my e-ring, so we had that done about 5 months in advance, to leave plenty of time.  I think you might as well get things like this out of the way.

Well, it appears that we’re getting married on the same day and I’ve been looking at bands for a while now. I expect we’ll buy them in the next two to three months.

I bought my ring in mid January, sent it back to Tacori to get resized with my engagement ring (the e-ring was too loose), and it was here by Valentine’s day.  We ordered it then because our jeweler said it could take up to six weeks to get back.  Our wedding is in 13 days, so it was a good timeframe for us.

I had an October 10, 2009 wedding. We got our rings during a semi-annual wedding band sale at a jewelry store where a friend works at. With the sale, we got to look at a wide selection of bands to choose from and have a built in discount too. The semi-annual was at the end of August. August 30th according to my Twitter. We picked them both up exactly a month later. Since mine was a 2mm white gold comfort fit band, it took less than a week to come in. My husband’s took the entire month because it was a special order in a slightly wider band than the sample.

I agree that it’s never too early. I think we bought our bands about 5 or 6 months before our wedding…but we knew which bands we wanted about 9 months before our wedding.

We had them made ages before hand but only got them the day before the wedding because my nana brought them over with her (they were made by my uncle who lives back in NZ)
