Cardiff Diamonds attended our first wedding fayre over the weekend and it became apparent that many of the couples attending ranked their wedding bands as something that could wait until the very last minute.
However, this couldn't be further from the case. Although purchasing your wedding bands is not something that comes with the attention of other parts of wedding planning such as booking venues or picking bridesmaid dresses, it is something that comes with a great importance that very few couples realise.
Your wedding bands will remain on your hands forever and symbolise two people coming together. The majority of brides and grooms leave their wedding bands until the month before their wedding but with doing that comes immense pressure, stress and sometimes cost.
Depending on what you want depends on the amount of time it will take for your rings to be ready. At Cardiff Diamonds we are able to get your wedding bands ready for you in just 2 weeks but, that time scale can change if your ring has been customised and changed.
We recommend leaving at least 16 weeks, 4 months, when choosing your wedding bands to allow time for customisation, should this be something you want.
Cost can also be a contributing factor, many couples end up settling for something they may not have wanted because they've spent their budget in other places and left their wedding bands to the very last minute.
However, Cardiff Diamonds is better than half price compared to leading jewellery companies when it comes to wedding bands, so whatever your budget we can help. But you shouldn't compromise on what you want because you've left it too late.
Couples should also allow time to see the wedding bands in person and try them on to see how they sit on your hands. As we've said, this is something you will be wearing for the rest of your life and not something you should rush into.
We encourage our customers to look on our website, cardiffdiamonds.co.uk, at our range of wedding bands but that doesn't beat seeing the range in person and trying our rings on during their no obligation appointment with us or when seeing us at the many wedding fayres we will be attending. It is also a great opportunity to ask questions you may have and speak to our friendly staff.
So, we hope that if you're in the mindset of leaving your wedding bands to the last minute of planning - Cardiff Diamonds has changed your mind!
You can call us 7 days a week to book an appointment at either of our Cardiff or Swansea offices or in the comfort of your own home. Just visit our 'Contact Us' page for more details.
