Are you planning to tie the knot in 2023? This is an exciting and important time in your life, and one of the most crucial decisions you will make for your wedding day is choosing the perfect wedding band. It is a symbol of your love and commitment, and you want to ensure that it is one that will last a lifetime.
Consider Your Personal Style
Your wedding band should reflect your personal style. Do you prefer a classic look or something more modern? Do you like a simple band or one with diamonds or other gemstones? Take some time to think about what you like and what will look best with your engagement ring.
Think About Your Lifestyle
Your wedding band should also be practical and comfortable to wear. If you have an active lifestyle, you may want to choose a ring that is durable and won't scratch easily. If you work with your hands or wear gloves, a thinner band may be more practical.
Set a Budget
Wedding bands come in a wide range of prices, so it's important to set a budget before you start shopping. This will help you narrow down your options and make sure you don't overspend.
Deciding On Your Design
Men’s Wedding Band Shopping
First things first, decide on your metal preference! At Consider the Wldflwrs, we offer yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, or platinum wedding rings. Each metal has its own unique characteristics and price point. Gold is a classic choice, while platinum is more durable and hypoallergenic.
Next, we suggest deciding on the width you would like. Our men's bands come in a range of 2 millimeters to 7 millimeters. 6mm is our most popular width, but we’ve seen an increase in 4mm and 5mm in the past year, particularly with our Nashville locals.
After considering width, it is time to decide on the shape you would like! You can choose from a flat, half-round, or comfort fit. Half-round is the most common choice, but style and comfort can vary.
Now for the fun part! Deciding on texture of your band. You could get a polished band for a classic look, or choose to go with a brushed, distressed, or hammered finish. Personalize your look even further by adding a gemstone or engraving.
Women’s Wedding Band Shopping
Similar to a women's band, there are several things to consider. To start, you should decide on your metal preference. Do you prefer the classic look of gold, or would you rather go for something more modern like white gold or platinum? This is an important decision, as it will set the tone for the rest of the band.e
Once you've decided on your metal preference, you can move on to the decision of stones. Do you want a plain, polished band, or would you prefer one with diamonds or other gemstones? The choice is yours, but keep in mind that the addition of stones can add some extra sparkle to your band.
Wedding bands can be set in many different ways. Our wedding band options include channel, flush, bezel, pavé, or prong set. Each of these settings has its own unique look and feel, so it's important to choose one that suits your personal style.
Finally, you should consider the shape and texture of your band. We have wedding band styles in straight across, arched (or curved), and cuff to fit any engagement ring. Each of these styles can add a unique touch to your stack and can help to complement your engagement ring.Shop Women’s Wedding Band Styles:

Try Before You Buy
Depending on your lifestyle, you may wear your wedding band longer or more often than your engagement ring, so it’s important that you love it! We recommend trying on wedding bands before you make a final decision. This will give you a chance to see how the ring looks on your finger and make sure it feels comfortable.
If you are unable to visit one of our locations, or are not local, please send us an email! We can provide you with a custom resin mold of any of our wedding bands, so you can get an idea of the style and fit on your hand.
If you're looking for something truly unique, consider customized wedding bands. At Consider the Wldflwrs, we take great pride in creating a one-of-a-kind design that reflects your personal style and love story. Production on custom pieces can take 6-8 weeks, so be sure to plan ahead to allow enough time for the custom process.
Don't Forget to Insure Your Rings
Once you've chosen your perfect wedding bands, don't forget to insure them. Wedding bands are an investment, and you want to make sure they're protected in case of loss, damage, or theft. Talk to your jeweler or insurance provider about your options. You may be able to add your rings to your existing homeowner's or renter's insurance policy, or you may need to purchase a separate policy. Be sure to ask about the coverage limits and deductibles, as well as any exclusions or restrictions that may apply.
Personalize Your Engraving
Many couples choose to engrave their wedding bands with a special message or date. This is a great way to add a personal touch to your rings and make them even more meaningful. Think about what you want to say and where you want the engraving to be placed. Some popular options include your names, initials, wedding date, or a short phrase.
If you're on the fence about getting an engraving, you should know that all of our metal bands come with the option of complimentary engraving, and many of our diamond bands can also be engraved at an additional cost. Engraving your band can turn a simple piece of jewelry into a meaningful keepsake that will be cherished for years to come. Don't hesitate to take advantage of this unique opportunity to make your jewelry truly one-of-a-kind!
Choosing the perfect wedding band is an important decision, but it doesn't have to be stressful. By considering your personal style, lifestyle, and budget, and exploring all your options, you'll be able to find the one that's right for you. Don't forget to take your time, try on different styles, and enjoy the process! Good luck and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
