My cousin got married yesterday and that got me thinking about less traditional wedding rings. Sam and her husband had simple gold bands with their names engraved in them. Sam & William for hers and William and Sam for his. With the economy still in a crunch, lots of couples may be looking for a way to scale back on the cost of a wedding and perhaps, even the cost of the rings as well. That doesn’t mean your rings can’t stand out.
In fact, there are wedding bands that not only take the cake, but come in under $1000. I took the time to seek out some amazing hand crafted rings that not only look amazing, but are also budget savvy. Don’t be afraid to do something a little different, especially if you’re able to put more heart into it than diamonds.
