Getting married is a major life event, and for a lot of bride and grooms to be, a stressful time. With so many things to organise, like the venue, catering, and invite list, there are a ton of choices every couple have to make. One of these decisions is the wedding rings. There are an array of different wedding rings out there for the bride and groom to decide on. This is an important decision to make as they symbolise the love for each other.

Usually the groom selects the engagement ring for his soon to be bride. However, these days the brides to be are often involved in the selection of the ring. A bride may want a matched engagement and wedding ring to complement each other.On the other hand, the groom may not be used to wearing jewellery and might find it quite hard to find a ring that he likes.This is when the bride to be may become involved to help make the decision.

With all that said, it may be best for both bride and groom to be involved in the ring selection as these rings will be worn by them for the rest of their lives.


With the cost of weddings continuing to grow higher, it is very important to have a strict budget. The cost of the wedding rings should be included in your budget. Traditionally, the bride usually purchased the grooms wedding ring and the bride the groom’s. Sometimes, you may be fortunate for the parents of the bride or groom to step in and purchase the rings.If you plan for the rings, planning and payment will be less stressful.

Remember that your rings are a personal choice for you, they do not necessarily have to match exactly.
