When you’re ready to propose, purchasing a wedding set can be a great idea for many reasons. You will not have to worry about later finding a wedding band to match her engagement ring. And, you want to make sure that you can alleviate as much stress as possible when planning a wedding. Wedding planning involves selecting a venue, a guest list, the type of invitations to be sent, the centerpieces, tablecloths, bridesmaid dresses, bridesmaid shoes, and more. You never want to be strapped for time when selecting one of the most important parts of any wedding ceremony—the rings.
Wedding set basics
A wedding set includes an engagement ring and matching wedding band. The band can be plain, have a pattern, or be studded with jewels. Sometimes, the two rings can resemble independent rings and be worn stacked. Another common type of wedding set includes two rings that look somewhat incomplete unless worn together. Typically, a wedding set is sold as a single purchase. Many women choose to later have their the two rings welded together for convenience while still maintaining the same look.
Similar to engagement rings and wedding bands purchased separately, there are many styles to choose from. One great thing about purchasing a wedding set is that the wedding band is guaranteed to work well with the engagement ring. If you only want to purchase an engagement ring for the sole reason that you doubt the wedding will actually happen, it is better to wait until you feel confident about the prospect of marriage.
Wedding set styles
There are some popular wedding set styles. Diamond rings have been popular engagement rings in the United States for many decades. Wedding set styles are as numerous as engagement ring styles. Given the number of options, pay attention to what kind of jewelry your potential bride-to-be typically wears. Take a note of if she prefers silver or gold jewelry. Also, is she a fan of large, flashy jewelry or more simple stuff? Does she prefer an antique look or modern styles? Given that she will wear a wedding set for the rest of her life, you want to make sure to get it right.
An unconventional way to pick the perfect wedding set
Take your girlfriend on a special afternoon outing near a quality jewelry store. When it’s a good time, take her hand and tell her that you want everything to be perfect. Convey that you want to spend the rest of your life with her, and you want to make sure that she is happy to wear the perfect ring for the rest of hers. Then, have a fun time picking out the perfect engagement ring or wedding set together. It will make for a memorable day and later a memorable story.
When you know that you are with the perfect woman, make sure that she gets to wear the perfect wedding set. Instead of finding out what her friends and family think she likes, let her choose. In the end, you know your girlfriend best. Some women love surprises, while others prefer surprise proposals immediately followed by a shopping trip to pick out the wedding sets they have always dreamed of.
