    My TA suggested we exchange fake or costume jewellery rings for our ceremony in case anything happens to the real ones while we're away.

    My preference is to use our real ones, because using fake ones feels..."fake"... but I guess I can see where she's coming from, it's in case we lose them, damage them or attract robbers or something.

    I'm just wondering if anyone has considered this and if its worth thinking of doing.

    Are you taking your engagement ring with you too?

      That's what insurance is for! Make sure your e-ring is insured, and unless your bands are really pricey, it's usually not worth it to insure them because of the deductible. I wouldn't flash the e-ring off the resort, and don't take it off, ever, and you should be OK.

        We're bringing ours. But ours aren't that expensive. His is a tungsten carbide from Ebay for $18.00. Mine is sentinmental since its his great grandmother's bridal set but its not worth very much.

          As long as you're careful I don't think it's an issue. You're just as likely to have something happen to them at home. As long as they are insured, I don't see why you wouldn't take your real rings.

            I agree be sure to insure your ring. Gem Shield and Chubb are the two best jewelry insurers and trusted and used by a large number of Diamond and Gem brokers for years, but they also have individual policies for people and I have found that in the event something does happen they cut you a check right away....unlike most other insurance companies. Make sure you insure everything and you'll be fine no matter what happens.

              We're bringing our real rings as well. My e-ring is already insured and we're adding my band on shortly. FI's ring is under $200. Just be smart about what you do with your ring. I would not take my e-ring off at all to sleep or shower so it's always with me. We're also planning on "locking" our bands in a suitcase locked inside another suitcase. I'm not bringing any other real jewelry. Trying not to make ourselves huge targets...man I sound paranoid!

                My fiance was actually mentioning that, but I want to have my e-ring & wedding band in the pictures and I don't want to be a day without it! We already have the engagement ring insured and will the bands, too. I understand the concern, but we will be careful. Ours are coming with us!

                  yes, i would like to have them in photos too. i have my e-ring insured already, we have yet to choose bands but great knowing that it's not something i'm the only one worried about!

                  definately have to not be flashy about them around town and good thinking about not taking it off....i take it off before sleeping because i use a heavy hand cream at night due to eczema....will have to work around that while there.

                    We are bringing our rings also. I understand what your TA is saying, but I kind of think you need your WEDDING rings for your WEDDING. Imo.

                    If you insure all your rings and don’t ever take off your e-ring you should be fine. Maybe there will be a safe in your room so you can lock up the bands till the ceremony and any other jewelry you have.

                      We wore our rings when traveling (even wedding bands because I once had a friend that had her bands stolen going through security when going to her wedding in NY) and put the bands in the room safe. Otherwise, I agree bring your rings with you - I wouldn't want to get married with a fake ring either.
