Bride Blogger Molly // The Groom’s Ring Hunt

Grooms Ring Hunt

Ladies, there’s no denying we spend a lot of time and energy dreaming about our perfect engagement ring and wedding band – so I want to encourage you to give your man the same luxury when it comes to picking out his perfect ring! We just began this process, and these few tips have been helpful in narrowing down the selections:

1. Set a budget. This will determine from day one which metals will or will not be within reason. Diamond encrusted bands tend to start around $1,800, while a tungsten ring is around the $250 mark.

2. Consider his personality and lifestyle. Does he work with his hands? Play sports? Heavy lifting? This also impacts which type of metal he should consider.

3. Will your rings match? Maybe he wants the same metal type or an engraved message on his ring.

4. Go together and enjoy the special moment by his side!

5. Remember that maintenance for diamond bands is a bit more extensive than a regular band.

6. Be certain to get the ring sized professionally.

This is something he will wear forever so make sure it’s something he truly loves! Happy hunting!

Looking for a way to break in your wedding heels? Consider signing you and your groom up for ballroom dancing classes!

Not only is dancing a great form of exercise, but it is also a great bonding activity for you and your groom to partake in. The last few months leading up to your wedding can get you feeling a little overwhelmed with all of the last-minute details and final decisions. Dancing is the perfect way for the two of you to let loose and have a little fun.

Taking dance classes can also ease some of the nerves you might feel during your first dance. With all eyes on you and your groom, it can be intimidating to take the floor. Don’t let your nerves hold you back! Taking a few dance classes will boost your confidence and allow you to live in the moment.
