{Wedding Tip Thursday} Tips for Purchasing Wedding Rings

Whether you are looking for wedding bands for men or rings for women, when choosing them you want to pick something that is personalized and significant to you and your partner. Just like your attire you want something that is going to fit your personality. I mean this is something you will be wearing forever, so I would hope you want it to be meaningful. So here are a few tips for purchasing wedding rings from somewhere like to make sure you’re getting the right one for you.


This is first and foremost because if a ring isn’t comfortable then you or your partner aren’t going to want to wear it. And that can lead to a huge problem. So when determining the best fit take into account shape and thickness/width especially when dealing with a larger finger of a plus size bride or groom. Soft, rounded edges are preferable to a ring with angular edges. The curve on the inside of the ring should be soft otherwise you’ll find the ring annoying and not want to wear it. The best wedding band for a man is the one he can slip on forget is there. Check out some of our favorite choices for a comfortable fit.

This is another one of those important factors when shopping for wedding rings because whether you both want the same style it needs to be something that you both are happy with. Yes, it’s super cute for you both to have matching wedding rings but honestly your partner might not like the same style of ring as you. Many wedding rings contain stones, specifically diamonds. Not many men want to wear diamonds, while most women do. Therefore, when choosing rings the style of the band can be the same, while allowing the bride to have hers embedded with diamonds. Most men’s wedding bands are wider than the woman’s too, therefore there is no mistaking which is the guy’s ring and which is the gal’s ring. So keep this in mind because both of you should LOVE your rings, not just one of you. Here are some examples of different styles of wedding rings.
