Who is responsible for the purchase of the groom’s wedding ring — the bride or groom ?
A: Generally the couple shops together for both wedding bands — you’ll probably pay for them together, or each buy the other’s band as a gift. Or, you can each pay for your own.
When should you buy your wedding rings?
When to Buy the Ring. You should plan to purchase the groom’s ring at least two months before the wedding. This will allow enough time to fix any potential problems (ring size, engraving mistakes, etc), and will ensure that the groom’s wedding band is finished and ready well before the big day.
