    We’re getting ours in late January probably, about 2 months out.  My engagement ring was sized in a few days and the soldering didn’t take long.  I don’t think it’s too late at all.

    We got ours about 5 months beforehand but I wanted everything mostly done early. I’m sure two months or so out is fine! Soddering doesn’t take long either!

    we got our bands about 1.5 months before the big day, we didn’t have to get them resized or soldered though.

    We bought ours a month and a half before the wedding, and still had time for me to get mine soldered together.

    Mine was fine, but Darling Husband custom ordered his and it took 10 weeks. If you found something you like already in stock though a month is plenty of time.

    I think you can buy them anytime after getting engaged as long as you leave enough time before the wedding to get them resized or adjusted if needed.

    Since you need your ring sized to a very small size and soldered to your e-ring, I think you should have at least a month of buffer time after buying your ring, just in case anything goes wrong. I think buying the rings in December should leave more than enough time.

    Hahahaha….. worst bride and groom ever – we don’t even fit on your poll. We bought ours like two weeks before the wedding, online, and pretty much prayed they’d get here in time. Mine came the day before I left to go to MI. 🙂

    I think you’ll be okay waiting to get it on sale.

    Yeah, I bought my hubby’s ring 2 DAYS before the wedding.  Oops.  We didn’t start looking until a few weeks out.

    we bought ours about 5 months before the wedding, because our jeweler was having a big sale then. hubby’s ring took about 6 weeks to come in but it came in from a designer in europe…

    @ddw: we did the same thing!

    It doesn’t take long to size/solder…a week max.

    I think it depends. I’m always early so we got ours probably 5-6 months before. We got simple, plain gold bands and had them engraved.

    We have not bought our bands yet, but we have our eye on some at our jeweler and with the price of gold rising, we are thinking of purchasing them soon.
