As a wedding destination we explore topics of interest from now and then and this one always had grabbed our attention recently.  We sometimes overlook the symbol that represents all of Marriage a whole, trapped in a single item that is worn everyday.  We wanted to know more about…What was the meaning of a Wedding Ring’s shape and composition?

The wedding ring is the last present a couple will give one another before their wedding.  The very first present a lady might receive is a relationship is a promise ring – which most think of a pre-engagement ring.  Later on as a duet gets more involved, the engagement ring replaces the pre-engagement ring and confirms a bond to each other.

This wedding ring is an emblem and throughout time has symbolized love, devotion and even an agreement between families. The physical structure of the wedding ring has changed as different civilizations have changed it to look more and more beautiful. Some materials are held more dear, like precious metals and diamonds which are considered to be of greater value – hence the feeling that they might mean more.  However the meaning behind the symbol has stayed the same throughout time and over continents. A ring placed on your womans finger says many things to her “I love you” “I wish to be with you forever” and “You are mine.”Most women cherish the instant when the man slips a ring on their finger.  They gaze with enchantment into each others eyes during that instant when the ring is put on and they understand that they will be together from then on.   The ring exchange has symbolization behind the wedding bands that  is as rich and as complicated as its own love story.   It should be told so that couples understand exactly why they exchange wedding rings.

A ring in its simplest form is a circle, which means ‘forever.’ The ring stands for an unclouded wish to spend all time together. Many couples opt to have a romantic phrase engraved within their wedding rings which makes that traditional symbolism even more important for each couple. Symbols exist throughout our culture. Even the materials the wedding ring is created out of appear to be symbols of love and devotion. A great deal of couples select diamonds on their wedding rings; diamonds are literally indestructibleand are the “forever” stone you want to select to epitomize your love. Rubies are another choice representing love, keenness and grandeur. While the wedding ring itself is seen as invaluable, the metaphor of the wedding ring symbolizes that your betrothed is precious to you.

The wedding ring was adorned in past times like it is presently, on the left hand, third finger. The reason being because of the strong-held belief that the vein in this finger moves at once from the heart. This notion was endorsed as ladies commenced wearing their wedding rings closer to their hand and then their engagement ring on that same hand – affirming this notion of it being so close to your heart.  So if you are going to share your love forever, take a look at our picturesque acres of for your Next Saratoga Wedding, Albany Wedding, Clifton park Wedding or Adirondack Wedding consider our rustic elegance or refined charm for your indoor or outdoor NY Capital Region wedding.
