Selecting the Engagement Ring Together: The Benefits
April 29, 2015
Getting engaged can be the most exciting time in your life. You may feel overwhelmed, though, at the prospect of selecting the engagement ring. There are so many engagement rings to choose from. There is also the matter of her ring size, her taste, and the fact that she will wear it for the rest of her life. No pressure!
It may be a great idea to select the ring together. This may seem a little unconventional, but it doesn't have to be. More and more couples are using the event of selecting the engagement ring as an opportunity to celebrate their engagement and spend time together as a couple. And just because you may be selecting the ring together does not mean you cannot still do the romantic proposal idea you've thought of. There are many benefits associated with selecting the ring together.
First of all, you will both be able to pick a ring that you both love. She will be there with you so you will be able to get her opinion. She is, after all, the one who will be wearing the ring for the rest of her life. She should get a say in what it looks like. Secondly, you can make sure you have the right size and that the ring will fit. Then you won't have to go through the trouble and expense of re-sizing the ring if it doesn't fit, which can be a real pain.
Most importantly, you don't want to start your life together as a couple in crippling debt. When you both decide on the ring together, you can both take a look at your budget and decide how much money you want to spend on the ring. There are no longer “rules” on how much you should spend on the ring, and going to select the ring together can be a beneficial way to discuss how much you want to spend.
Selecting the engagement ring together can be a fun and enjoyable way to make sure that you are both happy with the ring. Considering both people’s points of view and perspectives is a great way to begin a marriage. You are going to have to make big decisions together from now on so why not start with the engagement and the engagement ring?
