Personalizing your wedding rings with a secret message is a romantic way to make your precious jewelry even more special. Engraving has been a cherished tradition dating back to medieval times, allowing couples to inscribe religious quotes, vows, or intimate phrases that hold deep meaning. These personalized engravings will make your rings truly special and cherished symbols of your everlasting love story.
Engraving your rings won’t break the bank. The cost depends on the character count, and most engravings range from $50 to $100.
With 15 to 30 characters typically fitting on a ring, you have the freedom to craft a heartfelt message without exceeding your budget.
How it Works
Engraving takes place toward the end of the manufacturing process, allowing you time to decide on the inscription while your rings are being made. However, if you decide on engraving after acquiring the rings or even after the wedding, don’t worry; you can still have this sentimental touch added to your rings.
Jewelers commonly use laser engraving, a precise and safe method. This pencil-sized laser beam effortlessly etches the metal, preserving the integrity of your jewelry. This hassle-free process ensures your rings will maintain their beauty while carrying the heartfelt message.
Wedding Ring Engraving Ideas
If you prefer a more traditional approach, consider engraving the day that you first met or your wedding day perhaps. A simple yet powerful “I love you” or your initials is also a special touch. For those seeking a touch of romance, think about engraving a line from a favorite song that represents your love story or the coordinates of the place where you had your first date. These small but significant details can add an extra layer of sentiment to your rings.
On the other hand, if you both enjoy humor and want to keep things light-hearted, consider playful engravings like “Put me back on!” or “A deal’s a deal.” These phrases can bring smiles to your faces each time you glance at your rings.
After you have popped the question and she has said yes, the next step is to get busy with wedding preparations. Although traditionally, it is the bride who always gets to have the final say, times are changing and even the groom can share the spotlight. The key to doing that is becoming an active groom throughout the planning process.
What Does it Mean to Be an Active Groom?
Being an active groom means participating equally in the wedding planning and being just as involved with everything as the bride. This means that you have your own preferences, ideas, and suggestions to add and not be a mere passive spectator at your own wedding.
How to Be an Active Groom?
To be an active groom there are a number of things that you can do to make the planning fun and easier on the bride. At weddings, people are rather emotional, and more often than not the bride may feel overwhelmed with the potential changes that are to come her way. You can take charge and be emphatic towards your bride or assure her that you are by her side, all the way.
Things You May Be Required to Do
Try to be as available as you can to the bride’s needs. Pay attention to her opinions and her ideas and chime in if you can with your own. Choose the songs that are to play at your wedding. It does not have to be the whole wedding playlist, but perhaps a special song for your first dance together as man and wife. Family members may add to the stress of planning a wedding. Meeting their expectations and planning a wedding that you want can be challenging. In such a situation, be sensitive to your bride and be an active groom by simply assuring your bride that the two of you will get through this together.
