Having your wedding band engraved is something you should definitely give a lot of thought to. A lot of people decide to go for this option and it is not hard to see why. After all, it makes the ring personal and unique to your wedding specifically. This gives the ring a lot more meaning and adds further symbolisation to the love shared between you and your partner.
Nonetheless, if you do decide to go for this jewellery design option then you will need to spend a lot of time deliberating what you are going to have engraved on your wedding band. You need to make sure that you opt for an engraving you are 100% happy with. You need to think of it like getting a tattoo. After all, you are going to be wearing the wedding ring for the rest of your life and the last thing you want to do is regret what you have had engraved on your band.
There are many engraving ideas worth considering. Some of the most popular ones revolve around having a specific date engraved on both wedding bands. This can be the actual date of your wedding. However, you could also opt to go for the date you first met, or the date you made your relationship official, or the date you proposed/were proposed to. The choices are endless. Furthermore, dates are a particularly good choice with regards to design. After all, you can choose between different date formats as well as fonts. Not only this, but Roman numerals are particularly popular too.
Another popular option is to have your first name initials incorporated on both wedding bands. A lot of people like to intertwine the two letters together in order to showcase the union between them and their partner. This is also popular because the result of the two letters overlapping creates a unique and interesting design. Alternatively, you could have your partner’s name engraved on your ring, and your partner can have your name engraved on his ring.
Nevertheless, you may want to stray away from the norm and go for engravings that are different from what everyone else has got. If this is the case then why not consider reading various love poems or listening to your favourite love songs. Wedding bands have become very popular in recent years, and so you could get a lyric from the first dance song they are going to play. There may be a lyric that stands out and is a reflection of the love shared between you and your other half. This is likely to fill up the entire band and is great if you want a more intricate looking design.
If you truly want to make your wedding bands special then you should consider having them custom made as well as having an engraving. By doing this you ensure your ring is one of a kind completely. Not only this, but what better way is there to aptly display your love than by creating your own ring design?
