Well I think I can safely say that wedding season is well and truly upon us. As soon as July kicks off, so do the celebrations of love and it’s a time of year I look forward to. Ceremonies like weddings are such landmark events in our lives and memories are there to be made during weddings – and, of course, bonds that last for a lifetime are made too.
That bond? It’s sealed with the ring placed on the finger of your ‘to-be’, which is why the ring itself is incredibly important. It’s not just because it plays a large part in the ceremony of a wedding, but also because a lot of focus is placed upon it. It needs to be special, unique and meaningful. That said, many couples leave their ring search until the big day starts drawing near. After all, there are so many other things you have to plan far in advance – the venue, catering, dress etc – so rings tend to get overlooked until most of the details are already planned. So if you’re still ring hunting and need some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some his ‘n’ hers ring ideas so you can find your perfect wedding rings.
Perfect For Your Partner
One of the best rings that you could get for your partner is a ring that is them, all over. A personalised ring could have their favorite colour stone, or could be inscribed with a special date, or even a quote. A ring is for life, so it should be perfect for the person wearing it, even if it’s just a simple band. A ring can also reflect the fashion taste of the person wearing it; I know a few fellas who’d rock the camo ring sets from weddingbandsforboth.com – and the camouflage design might make them more keen to wear their wedding ring all the time, too.
The camo ring described above is a great way to be different, but there are other ways in which you could show off your style. Braided metals, gems, engraving; all of this adds a little bit of a unique factor to your wedding ring. It’s for life, so why not make it a little bit different. Explaining your choice of jewel (a birthstone, for example) will always be a good conversation starter in the future too!
A Handmade Ring
Yes, you can get rings designed from scratch and it could be a an excellent idea if pulled off right. While many people imagine the traditional band as gold, other metals such as silver, platinum and rose gold have found their way into the wedding ring scene in recent years. What’s more, if you’re getting a handmade ring you could even go for a wooden ring. At least you know that a ring that’s been handmade for you is totally unique, so what more could you possibly want?
Complement Each Other
While it is possible to have matching or similar wedding rings (my husband and I both have gold bands in different thicknesses) don’t be afraid to mix things up. While you might be with your perfect partner, you don’t need to do everything the same. If your style is not to your partner’s taste, go with something different but keep some elements – such as the type of metal – the same. If you each choose a design you love you’ll be much happier wearing your ring for the rest of your life, rather than putting up with something that only one of you chose.
I hope these ideas have given you some inspiration if you’re going wedding ring shopping this summer. Please let me know what ring styles, metals or jewels you’ve chosen by leaving me a comment below 🙂
