The best part about a destination wedding is that you can get straight to the honeymoon after. After the ceremony, there is no traveling to your getaway because you did it all before. But there are a lot of things to keep in mind including your engagement ring! Will the weather be what you expect? What’s it like traveling with a fancy, diamond engagement ring? Here are some tips for keeping the engagement ring safe during your destination wedding!
The best thing you can do before booking your destination wedding is insure your engagement ring. This will give you the peace of mind to enjoy your wedding and honeymoon without worry. Your engagement ring is something special that you don’t want to lose. It represents your relationship with your partner so protect it! Jewelry insurance can range from repair to replacing your ring if you lose it or it gets stolen. Jewelers, like Blue Nile, provide insurance when you buy your beautiful engagement ring. From the start, you never have to worry about it!
Cleaned & Checked
Before you even leave, make it a priority to have your engagement ring professionally cleaned and checked by a jeweler. Your wedding photos are going to be memories that you can forever look back on so having your ring look extra shiny is only a plus! You don’t want your engagement ring to disappoint. You want that ring to look gorgeous next to your brand-new wedding ring. A professional jeweler will inspect it to make sure there is no damage to the ring like a loose setting or cracks in the stone. Cleaning it yourself is a great idea, but this extra step will make sure that your ring gets the care it needs for that particular setting and stone. It’s better to have your engagement ring sparkling and fixed before you leave, then realize you have a problem while you’re there!
Bring the Ring Box
This may seem like common sense, but with all the wedding planning and packing this is easy to miss! Bring your ring box for both the wedding ring and your engagement ring. You will likely have to take off your engagement ring at the airport so this will keep it extra safe. When the wedding is over, you can get straight to the honeymoon! If you’re doing anything crazy, make sure you take off your rings and put them in the box and stored safely in the hotel’s safe. It might be sad to not wear them, but this is way better than losing or damaging them. Whether you’re hiking a volcano or snorkeling the seas, have fun, but be aware. You don’t want to scratch the metal or lose any stones!
Your destination wedding is going to be so gorgeous and memorable! The beautiful beaches and weather are going to create a day you’ll never forget. All of these tips will help create the wedding of your dreams and keep your rings safe!
