    • Wedding: A very pretty church.

    Bought ours last week, wedding is Dec 2015. Our expenses are fairly low at the moment, but I’d bet anything they will be massive closer to the date. Very happy to cross this one off the list, especially as my boy found ‘the one’ and ‘the one’ is platinum >.>

    • Wedding: October 2014 - Cape May

    Our wedding is this coming October so we just started the custom process yesterday for our bands. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted- Fiance knew from day one!

    I ordered a plain band online two months ago. We bought FI’s ring then as well. My band didn’t match, so I returned it. From there, I actually tried on rings. I didn’t think it was that important, but I actually had a helpful guy who knew what would work best. I ordered a band online again last week, and the dimensions are just right. It’s also good that I returned the first ring since unexpected car repairs made the budget change.

    We got ours six months prior. I wanted double bands and DH had to order his. When we noticed a pretty hefty sale came around, we took advantage. Plus I wanted to buy my bands when I knew they had two available.

    We started making payments on mine about six months before and paid it off two months later.  We bought my FIs about two months ago, but won’t be recieving it until a few weeks before our wedding (fingers crossed!).

    He got mine with my engagement ring. They were custom made, so he had a wedding band made to coordinate with the engagement ring.

    We have just less than a year until the wedding and haven’t even went to look for his yet.

    we just bought ours last month.  I went and bought mine at the jewellery store and he ordered his online a month back since it can take a little while for it to come in and we wanted it come in on time.

    I would have bought mine sooner but I was still researching on what I wanted and I was still working on my budget for it too AND finding the best price.  I’m glad I didn’t buy it sooner.  I had a different style I wanted a year ago and I think I would have regretted it if I had bought it then.  I had to try a bunch on and really figure out what I wanted and now I am sooo in love with what I bought!

    Two days before our wedding. It took us an hour total, and that included resizing his ring.
