Engraving…I’m Drawing a Blank!

Wedding Ring Engraving Ideas

We picked our wedding bands! Yay! We are purchasing them from a local jeweler, Laney’s in Williamsburg, Virginia, where Mr. B bought (actually designed!) my engagement ring. I’m going this weekend to buy them and get Mr. B’s ring engraved, but I have a problem—I have no idea what the engraving should be! So I decided to do some brainstorming and internet research to come up with some wedding ring engraving ideas.

Here are some meaningful engraving ideas:

Traditional. I heard the traditional engraving is the bride’s maiden initials to the groom’s initials and the date. I love the timelessness of that idea, but I think I want to do something more original.

Bible Verses. We’re both very spiritual and believe that we need to keep God at the center of our marriage. We discussed some of Mr. B’s favorite verses, Galatians 2:20 and Proverbs 3:5 as options, but I’m not sure I want to take that route, either.

Funny. I saw a really funny one on TV once that said, “Put it back on!”

Sayings. I also thought of using a saying we have said to each other a lot during our relationship. When we first started dating we would always say, “It is what it is!”

Those all seem way too crude, though, and I don’t want the engraving in his ring to be joke.

Meaningful and new.
