    Have you clarified if the 1-2 week time is for resizing AND soldering at the same time, or either/or? What is their turnaround just for resizing? My jeweler (Chain store, Jared) can resize in a few hours.  What I am thinking is you can have the e-ring resized before and just not solder them yet. You can resize them now and solder them later after the honeymoon. The fun part about NOT soldering them before the actual wedding is because you are wearing your e-ring when you get married and walk down the aisle, and when the officiant asks for the rings your Fiance puts the wedding band on you separately. Would be weird to be walking down the aisle ring-less and your Fiance applies both rings together.

    If it were me, I would leave my rings to get soldered and re-sized after the wedding and before the honeymoon. I personally got a “travel” set on Amazon that are similar to my ring so I can still gush. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congradulations on your accomplishment! I think it’s okay to get them done before the wedding. Then you wouldn’t have to worry about picking the rings back up after the wedding & you can have them for your honeymoon.

    citizenerased14 :  I got mine done right before the wedding and wore my silicone rings for 2 weeks while they were gone. I also was told up to 2 weeks for soldering and resize, and it was done in 4 days.

    citizenerased14 : You could do it either way, but I waited until after my wedding to solder, and I REALLY wish that I’d had it done before the wedding. In hindsights, I wouldn’t mind going ringless until the wedding personally, and having both put on me at the altar, just to save myself the annoyance of my rings spinning and then having to go ringless AFTER I was married to get it fixed. I loved wearing my set, so proud to be married and it was sad to be without them right after I just started wearing them. Either way though, you’ll still be waiting two weeks for your rings. At least after the wedding you won’t have to deal with it anymore and can just enjoy your set.
