We are getting married in May and haven't done anything about wedding rings yet - are we leaving it late? Can anyone give me advice on how long it takes to sort out your wedding rings? Thanks!

You still have plenty of time but depending on the rings you want, some might take longer than others. For example my DH wanted a simple band and was able to collect it a couple of days later however mine had to be ordered in my size and took 6 weeks. Friends of ours went down the road of getting their rings specially designed and this took a few months from the start to when they got the rings. I'd suggest start looking now as there's no need to wait and it's a great feeling to get another thing ticked off the list.

Hi Comprometida I can give you the name of a fantastic manufacturing jeweller based in Dublin who has very reasonable prices and you can consult with their designer to [b:1amqa5fv]create bespoke rings which will be ready within 10 days. [/b:1amqa5fv]I recommend them for wedding rings to all couples that book me as their wedding photographer. They are not a supplier on WOL but if you want to contact me by PM or email to [email protected] I can give you the name and contact details. David McLean

We spoke with Voltaire at the RDS wedding show and they take approx 6 week's. However their advice was not to leave it 6 weeks before the wedding just in case, they said most couples tend to look 3-6 month before hand.

My bespoke took about 6 weeks, ordering his in took 3.

ours took 6 weeks to come in. DH wanted sth slightly diff, you have 3 mths- I would say look now which gives you lots of time.

I was lucky enough when i went ring shopping. Picked out one i loved, tried it on and it was a perfect fit. However h2bs ring is a lot more expensive and detailed so we had to order that in and we were told about 8 to 10 weeks for it to be done and in.
