We started looking around 7 months, but then got busy and didn’t start looking for real until around 4 months. You can look all you want though! Who can tell you when you can or can’t shop? That’s my opinion, anyway.

We actually started looking about 12 months before the wedding  (we had a long engagement) and I’m glad we did because I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in any jeweler’s cases.  So i ended up having mine custom made.  That process took a LOT longer than I thought it would, so I’m really happy we started early. 🙂

We’re getting married in Aug and are going to look at the end of this month.  I don’t think it’s too soon if you want to start looking to see what you like and what looks good with your e-ring.

I started looking in September of last year, and I didn’t find anything I liked until this month!  You never know what something will look like against your engagement ring until you start trying on bands.

We got my band as a matched set with my engagement ring. My e-ring has diamonds down the sides, and it would have driven me nuts to find a separate band that lined up. We were looking at settings (bought the diamond loose), and when I mentioned that, the consultant brought over a setting that was almost identical to the one we were looking at but it had the matching band. Problem solved!

And yes… I do put it on and ooo and awww over it when no one is home. Hey, it’s a long time to have it and not be able to wear it! Wink

@Amaryllis: I totally got busted (one too many times) by Darling Husband while “trying on” my wedding band at home.  He would come home and I would try to sneak it back in the box, but he always caught me! 

I got grounded from it and he took it away and stored it in a safety deposit box until the wedding.   I really missed it but it made it really special when I actually got to wear it after the wedding 🙂
