Wedding Bands and What to Engrave on Wedding Bands?
All about choosing and using wedding bands
A personal, meaningful message engraved inside a wedding band makes the symbol of the eternal love between
a couple even more special for the two of them. It can be a favorite saying, a religious message,
a line from a sentimental poem or song, or your names and the date on which you were married. It can be
any unique token of devotion to each other.
Your engagement and wedding rings are symbolic of the love you and your partner
share. Since you are meant to wear these rings forever, engraving a short sentiment on the inside of
them will serve as an additional reminder of your engagement, wedding day and love.
Choosing wedding bands can be one of the hardest decisions you make during the wedding planning
process. Once you and your fiancé decide on bands, you may also want to consider having them engraved. Since the
engraving is done in the inside of the ring, whatever you inscribe is something special and a private message
shared between you and your fiancé. Deciding what to engrave can be a tough, but there are a few
traditional options you may want to consider.
Some popular ideas for engraving an engravable wedding band other than the traditional names and date are taken
from old religious phrases. Some of these phrases are: Bless O Lord This Ring; Forever and Ever; God Joined
Us; Our Unity Is in Christ; and For Whither Thou Goest, I Will Follow.
Perhaps the most traditional choice of something to engrave on engravable wedding bands are dates.
You can engrave the date of your marriage, the date you met or any other date that holds a special meaning for the
two of you. When engraving a year, consider using Roman Numerals for a different type of design. If you want to
engrave a date, you will need to detail the format you prefer. You can use strictly numbers, for example;
1/1/2010, a mixture of letters and numbers; January 1, 2010 or you can formally write out the date; First of
January, Two-Thousand and Ten.
Your wedding date and engagement dates are important to always remember. To ensure you never forget,
engrave it on the inside of the ring. As the years go by, you will have a small reminder of that special
date. While anniversaries will come and go that date will be locked in, and celebrated, forever.
My husband's ring is engraved with the date. But, my bands are dotted with small diamonds so there
is no room for engraving.
