Choosing An Engagement Ring Matching Your Wedding Dress

It is true that wedding dresses may be the point of attraction of any wedding, but the proper accessories can add personality and elevate your look.

Between shoes, veils, jewelry and other accessories, there are a lot to choose from. Here is a guide to pick the engagement ring that matches the wedding gown of your bride.

Gemstones or diamonds, gold or platinum – narrowing down on your options can be overwhelming, but no need to panic. Take it one step at a time.

Many people place more focus on their engagement rings that their wedding rings can end up as an afterthought. Engagement rings are both focal parts of any commitment and are symbols of love, so, it is very important you make the right choice.

This may not work if your prefer your engagement ring to be a surprise; but having a knowledge of the bands that go with the engagement ring can help you make a choice.

If you have an engagement ring that is unique for example, you may want a band that is simple and has no fuss, and an engagement ring that is simple may require a diamond pave band.

If you’re considering wearing your wedding ring side by side your engagement ring, look for a shadow or contour band designed.

Once you have a good idea of the kind of ring you’d go for, start your search at least three months before your engagement proposal. You’ll need this time to research prices and revisit the rings that stand out to you. If you have made up your mind to get a custom ring, you’ll likely need more time.

Don’t fret if you prefer yellow gold and your partner likes platinum. You don’t need to choose the same kind of style or even metal. You could mix up with braided bands that can blend two metals together – the key is getting something you both love. 

While shopping, have it in mind that you’ll spend close to three percent of your wedding budget on rings, and they vary in prices depending on the retailer. Embellishments like engraving or diamonds make rings more expensive, so, have that at the back of your mind.

The cost of engraving usually depends on the font, the machine used or the number of characters.

Remember that she’ll be wearing this ring every day; so, choose something that can easily become part of her life. A slimmer ring will be appropriate if she plays any sport or instrument.
