When your fiancé and you are standing before your wedding officiant and it’s time to exchange wedding bands, you definitely want to choose one that the man whom you adore will love wearing for the rest of his life.
So, as you’re contemplating what kind of wedding band to get your future groom, we wanted to make the process easier for you by providing you with a list of five things that you should consider during the band selection process:
Consider his lifestyle. If your soon-to-be-husband is an accountant, it’s not really going to matter what kind of wedding ring he wears; however, if he’s a musician or a contractor, it will matter because those kinds of professions can end up damaging their ring (or sometimes even their finger). So, as you’re looking at rings, speak with the customer sales associate about the size and metals that will best accommodate your fiancé’s daily lifestyle.
Consider if he’s allergic to certain metals. It would be tragic to purchase a beautiful titanium engraved wedding band, only to discover a blister develop around it days after your wedding day because he was allergic to the metal. That’s why you also need to know what types of metals he is allergic to before making a purchase.
Consider his personality. Something else that you need to take into consideration is your fiancé’s personality. For instance, while a plain gold band is a classic look, he might prefer a silver band instead. If he’s eco-friendly, there are wooden rings that are more appropriate. On the other hand, if he feels like diamonds are actually a girl’s and a guy’s best friend, he might want some gemstones on his ring. The point is, his personal tastes are also important in choosing a ring. Therefore, make sure to consider these contributing factors.
Consider if you want your bands to “match”. Do you want your bands to match? If so, then this is something else you need to take into consideration. Furthermore, don’t forget to factor in the kinds of metals, the width, the stones and the inscriptions that you both want on your rings. As a special note: Even if you don’t want your rings to be identical, keep in mind that it’s still a good idea for them to at least complement one another. It’s the details that make a nice touch.
Consider the fit. The final element to keep in mind when it comes to your groom’s wedding band is making sure that it’s just the right fit. If your fiancé is not going to go with you to select his ring, take one of the ones that he wears often along with you so that his wedding band can be properly sized. Choosing your groom’s wedding band can be a relatively simple task. It’s all about knowing his style and taking your time with the selection process.
After all, the bride has to be the spotlight of the wedding. Make sure you pick up some jewelry pieces that will complement you and your husband’s wedding bands. Whether you want to go for a silver earring to complete the look or a gold bracelet to add more edge, be sure to follow the same criteria you learned in this post when choosing jewelry.
