Now I know there was no real hurry to decide on the wedding bands but I had my reasons. My Grand Aunt is a jeweler and since she was heading off to a jewelry fair in Hong Kong (where prices are much cheaper!), I decided to ask if she could order the rings there.
The Groom and I had already attended two bridal fairs at this point and I made it a point to inquire about the relative cost of wedding bands. (It's a great idea to drop by the booths of jewelers at these fairs because they give pretty big discounts if you purchase it there-some even up to 50% off!)
I did a lot of research before deciding on the design I wanted. I visited these three sites:
Anyhow, I decided on a Tiffany & Co. design called the Jazz Band Ring. (How ‘20s! Haha!)

Canvassing for prices at the bridal fairs really helped because we found that getting The Groom's ring here came out to be quite affordable. (I'll be having his ring made with local jeweler, Ocampo's.) Also, like most guys, The Groom did not know his ring size so we made sure to try on a few rings in various designs to find this out. Apparently, your ring size can vary depending on the thickness and style of the ring.
While I'm certain My Groom is quite particular about the things he wears, don't discount the fact that Your Groom might also want to choose the design of his wedding band. I asked The Groom to do his own online research for rings and I was pleasantly surprised by the styles that interested him.
