Wedding planning is dotted with major decisions and challenges along the way. Even something like choosing your rings requires a lot of thought. A bridal set, also known as a wedding set, is a great choice for brides-to-be for many reasons. Here are six reasons you should seriously consider choosing a set when ring shopping for your special day.
- Optimum Design
A bridal set is a pair of rings created and intended to be worn together. When you buy the engagement ring and wedding ring separately, you have to consider how they’re going to look when you wear them together. It makes sense that if something were meant to be together (just like the happy couple!), then the design scheme would be ideal. In the case of a bridal set, the engagement ring and wedding band, though separate, are fashioned in a single design, complementing each other perfectly. These sets come in many styles, colors, band widths and more.
- It’s Simple and Stress-Free
If you think choosing one ring is challenging, imagine choosing two! Buying a bridal set takes the guessing out of the equation. You know they will look gorgeous once placed together on your patiently awaiting finger.
- It’s Economical
Many times you can save money by buying a set, simply because there may be a better “package” price for the duo. As any bride and groom well know, every penny counts when saving for the big day…and your future.
- They’re More Comfortable to Wear
Rings that were meant to be worn together naturally fit better, making them more comfortable to wear. Sometimes when rings are purchased separately, you can feel that there are two rings. They shift and move and in some cases even pinch your skin in between the rings, making you more conscious of them, which might become slightly annoying. This isn’t always the case, but at least you can be sure this is a non-issue with a bridal set that was designed to be worn together.
- Beauty and Grace
Bridal sets are a stunning example of a carefully laid out plan. The geometric shape and proportion of the rings set together make them a collaborative work of art. Aside from design, though, each style also holds sentimental value, capturing all the beauty and unity of your romance and your marriage.
