Wedding rings are often overlooked when planning the big day. By default, the elements that make the perfect day such as the venue, the dress, flowers, food, photography, music, and styling are typically the main focus.
As important as all of these elements are, you mustn’t forget the wedding rings! Coming from years of experience sharing the journey with many couples at Larsen Jewellery, we’d like to gently remind you how important it is to factor your wedding rings into your wedding day plan and budget. When these are left to the last moment, either the decision is rushed or the budget will not allow the designs you wish for.
One thing many couples underestimate is the time it takes to custom make a wedding ring, particularly when your wedding is during the height of the wedding season. Although the process of choosing your wedding ring is generally quicker than an engagement ring, it still typically takes 4-5 weeks from finalising the design and placing the deposit to complete your rings.
After having shared this process with thousands of couples, our top piece of advice is to plan your wedding rings early, at least 2-3 months prior to your wedding is a great idea. The lead up to the big day only gets busier and busier and with so many other things on your mind, making clear decisions only gets harder. Planning early means the time constraints are relaxed and you can be certain you make the right decision.
