Saved Save

Don't forget about the bling bling! Are you and your future spouse splurging on your wedding rings? Or did you choose something more simple that let you save a little?

Are you splurging or saving on your wedding rings?

    Save, kind of. We went and looked at bands for my FH this weekend. But we are going to wait until they have their annual band sale in March since we have time lol. My FH already bought my wedding band

    Save. My e-ring and band came as a set and my FW's band was inexpensive.

    Splurge. We both got the rings we wanted, even if we spent a little more than anticipated. We wear them daily so we didn't mind spending a little extra.

    Save. My husband liked a thin simple ring and I was gifted my wedding band which I now rarely wear.

    We just got what we liked not caring about the price but neither of us wanted anything extravagant.

    Save. My FH has a Groove Ring that cost $30 (yay coupons). My engagement ring will be under $700, and my wedding band will likely be very simple.

    Save. I personally think I splurged on mine, but others would probably say I saved... My ring was $350, whereas my FH's ring was around $50!

    Save for the most part. We are simple people when it comes to jewelry so we don't need anything extravagant but still like elegance

    I want a cheaper band cause he already bought me a beautiful engagement ring, but I'm gonna let him pick what he wants!

    Splurge I guess. I would’ve paid whatever the cost if I found THE ring but I wanted an art deco antique so it just came down to finding the one. My ring ended up being a lot more affordable than expected so it was just a happy surprise.

    Both. Mine came as a set with the engagement ring, which he spent more on than I thought he would. Nothing crazy, but higher than I thought he’d go. For his, it was a save - he picked out a simple stainless steel ring that was fairly inexpensive so I lucked out!

    Splurge! My ring was a good price and his is a little expensive not much though!

    Mine will be save since I’ll hardly ever wear it (nothing fits with my engagement ring) but I’m guuuuuessing my fiance will be splurging he just doesn’t realize it yet.

    We saved, but I totally wouldn't have been opposed to splurging had it been in the budget. FH refuses to wear any type of jewelry, so instead he will be getting a tattoo wedding band with our date.

    Splurge to a point. FH never gave me a budget and he actually changed my wedding band to one that was more expensive. I wanted to splurge on his because he'll have it for the rest of his life. He hasn't really ever had nice things so when he picked his ring he was apprehensive to show me because he was worried about the cost. I reassured him, not worry about the cost I will get whatever you like, and I did

    Save. I wanted something with bigger diamonds but we opted for something in our budget. I love my wedding band though

    We haven't bought our wedding bands yet, but hoping to save!

    Total splurge! My FH went over budget with his ring and so did I. It is something we will wear forever so we decided it was worth it.
