How to Find The Groom’s Ideal Wedding Ring
Updated: Feb 3
The idea of engagement and even the wedding is almost synonymous with the image of the ideal ring slipping perfectly onto the bride’s finger, but how familiar are you with the groom’s wedding ring? We can’t forget the other half of the wedding ring equation, and there’s a lot more to think about when getting the man his wedding band.
For all you grooms who want to know more about the wedding ring that’s right for you, we’ve got you covered! Here are some common tips when getting a wedding ring for the groom.
Classic Case of Budget
Like with anything related to weddings, be sure you have your budget set. Since the engagement ring usually takes up all the attention, getting your wedding ring can be seen as a much easier spend, but always remember that this ring is a symbol of your marriage, and it’s part of the exchanging of rings between the marrying couple. A men’s wedding band can cost anywhere between $100 and $2,000, although the average spend is roughly $600.
When it comes time to make the purchase, you should be making the buy a couple of months before the wedding, at least two months prior to the ceremony. That way if you need a resizing or some other issue comes up with the wedding band, you’ll be able to get it sorted out just before the I do’s.
A Comfortable Fit
When it comes to ring size, make sure the groom knows his ring size, and I mean really knows it. Make sure he gets a ring fitting so both he and you know exactly what size will let him slip the ring on and off without the hassle of the wedding ring being too tight or too loose. The best part about sizing your ring is that it’s usually done for free by most jewelers!
Depending on what you want for the groom’s wedding ring, you can pursue a matching set of wedding bands or go for more individual preferences. With so many jewelry options out there, it’s easy to get carried away with varying types, metals, and styles of wedding bands. But one thing you want to be sure about the wedding bands is that they do compliment one another. The more common metals for a groom’s wedding band include:
Other metals like Tungsten are gaining popularity, but as long as the wedding band can fit your budget, then you are free to be as creative or as traditional as you want.
Overall the wedding band is for the groom, and the goal you want to keep in mind is that it’s a piece of jewelry that he’ll be proud to wear during the wedding and long after to show a little piece of your marriage wherever he goes.
