This one might be safe to do 2 months in advance, but doing it 1 month in advance ensures that you don’t buy something extravagant or beyond your means.
We purchased Mike’s wedding band online — a simple gold band. We bought my ring from a local – ahem – pawn shop. Yes, yes. A pawn shop. It’s not a dirty word, and the rings from there aren’t cursed. It’s just a piece of fine metal with some diamonds. Aint no thang.
My ring matched beautifully to my engagement ring. Mike’s ring didn’t match mine in the slightest, but that type of thing doesn’t matter to us. What mattered was to buy something affordable, and something we could both live with 24/7 on our fingers.
Done and done.
