Rings
It is customary around the world for married couples to wear wedding rings as a symbol of their love for each other.  Below are our top ten tips on how - and when to choose the wedding rings you’ll love and wear forever.
Shop as a couple
During your wedding planning some decisions may not be done as a couple, but choosing your wedding rings should be.  Dedicate a weekend or two to shopping for your wedding rings and try and visit more than one jeweller so that you see different styles and variety before making a final decision. It is traditional for the bride to buy her groom’s wedding ring and vice versa, so make your wedding ring shopping trip as fun as possible.
Choose the right metal
Years ago wedding rings were mainly purchased in a classic gold style, however now a days wedding rings can be designed in a number of different materials. Material options for wedding rings include gold, white gold, rose gold, silver, platinum, palladium, titanium and zirconium to name a few.
Comfort is key
Your jeweller will have a special ring size guide so that you can measure exactly what size your wedding rings will need to be ordered in.  The size of your finger may change over the years, but having your wedding ring re-sized is always an option in the future.
Love what you buy
You’ll be wearing your wedding rings forever so be sure to love what you buy! If you have any doubt then consider shopping around before making a final decision on your purchase.
Don’t forget wedding ring insurance
Before you spend any money on your wedding, including your wedding rings, consider purchasing wedding insurance – just in case something goes wrong.  However, once you’re married, it is advisable to include the bride’s engagement rings, and both wedding rings on your house hold insurance, just to protect you in case they get stolen or go missing in the future.  
Don’t forget your rings on the day
If the Best Man is going to be in charge of looking after your wedding rings on the day of the wedding then make sure he is aware of his role and responsibility.  If you’re having a page boy carry your wedding rings down the aisle on a ring cushion then be sure to leave someone in charge, as you’ll be busy getting ready for your big moment.
