Getting engaged is an exciting moment in any person’s life - once you have the engagement ring on your finger, thoughts about future wedding plans start racing through your head almost immediately. Though it may not be the first thing that comes to mind, a big moment in your engagement is buying your spouse-to-be’s wedding band. But the question is, when’s the best time to purchase it?
Before getting into the best time to get wedding bands, let’s dive into the history of these meaningful rings:


The Wedding Band History

Originating in ancient Egypt, the fourth finger on your left hand symbolized the vena amoris, or “vein of love”, making a perfect place to wear future weddings bands.
  • Wedding rings are circular, symbolizing eternal union
  • Greeks and Romans originally created wedding bands of leather, bone, or ivory
Today, wedding bands are most traditionally made of metal as a long-lasting and quality material.

When’s the Right Time to Buy?
Understanding where wedding bands come from, it’s plain to see how important they are as a representation of your partnership. Depending on who you ask, people will give varied advice around when to make the big purchase. Your day wedding planner may be able to give you insight into what other couples have done to help you decide on what’s best for you and yours.

Here are some considerations to keep in mind when deciding on when to make the big purchase:


1. Start Shopping Early

Shopping early gives you more time to look for the perfect wedding band option that fits in with your budget.
  • Shopping early helps you plan and save for your ideal wedding band
  • You can see the typical asking price and styles available
This is the best way to decide what makes the most sense for your wedding band choice given your style and budget.

2. Purchase at least 3-4 Months Before the Wedding

Purchasing your wedding band at least 3-4 months before your wedding is a good timeline as you approach your wedding date:
  • Allows you to get the wedding band adjusted as needed
  • Gives you time to save money during your engagement and purchase when you’re comfortable
This is an ideal time to purchase your wedding band to ensure it’s ready well before your wedding.


3. If You See A Deal, Don’t Hesitate

When you’re shopping for a wedding band, if you see a deal on a band you like, don’t hesitate to grab it.
  • It may be your only opportunity to get the wedding band you want, when you want it
  • You may not be able to get the same wedding band for the price
Prices fluctuate all the time, so purchasing when you see a deal is your best bet when it comes to wedding band shopping.



4. Do it Right After Your Engagement

Some brides-to-be purchase the wedding band right after their engagement.
  • They may have had a wedding band in mind before they got engaged
  • This gives them plenty of time to get the band fitted and delivered if not purchased locally
Depending on the length of your engagement, this can be particularly early. Though if you have a shorter engagement, or are looking to purchase a wedding ring from an online store that has a longer delivery period, this might be the best choice.



The Bottom Line

There are many options when purchasing your spouse-to-be’s wedding band - these are just some considerations to keep in mind throughout the process. Depending on what you are looking for in a wedding band, the length of your engagement, and your price range, you can adjust your plans accordingly to best meet your individual needs.

Taking care of your wedding band purchase in advance can help you focus on the other important aspects of your wedding, including your wedding coordination ideas, creative reception ideas, and more!
