Congratulations, you’re now engaged! When the engagement excitement wears down, you’ll find you have a lot of decisions to start making. For most women, the first thing that comes to mind is the planning of the wedding. Who will your bridesmaids be? What kind of wedding theme are you going to go with? Where will you get the cake from? It’s easy to push the concept of the “man wedding ring” to the back of your mind.
For women, it’s simple. We need an engagement ring and we need a wedding ring. This is the norm of society, but what about men? Though it may surprise people, the concept of a man wearing a wedding ring is relatively new. In fact, the trend did not start until World War II. Prior to this, many men were able to conceal their marital status, because it was not considered “manly” to wear a wedding ring and was certainly never heard of before. However, during the war, many men chose to wear wedding rings to publicly display their marital status, and from that point on, ROQ Silicone Wedding Rings you could almost say it has developed into the norm, but not always. The first question you must ask yourselves as a couple is whether or not your future husband will wear a wedding ring.
The next step in your decision process, should you both decide that your husband will wear a ring, is whether or not you’d like to have a matching set of wedding rings. Many couples choose to have a unique wedding ring for the woman and a unique wedding ring for the man, particularly when antique rings will be used for the woman (i.e. a great-grandmother’s wedding ring passed down through generations). Others opt for the matching set as a symbol of their being the perfect match for each other.
Now, focus on the style of the ring you will be choosing for the men’s wedding ring. What type of personality does your future husband-to-be have? Is he outlandish and flamboyant or conservative? How does he typically dress? This ring will be an accessory to his clothes every day for the rest of his life (preferably), so choose wisely! If he’s more “flashy”, then an ornate ring might be better suited for him. If he’s conservative, a simple band might do. Don’t forget to take his size and stature into account. Are his fingers more “chubby” or more slender? These characteristics will all have a bearing on the ring you ultimately choose.
