Would You Split the Cost of the Engagement Ring?

One of the week’s big online debates has been whether or not a bride should split the cost of her engagement ring.

The supporters of splitting the cost argue that you can get a bigger ring if you split the cost. It also sets up the financial relationship that will need to carry through the rest of your wedding planning. As fewer couples have their parents paying for their weddings, the bride and groom themselves have to work out how to budget the wedding costs themselves. In this case, the engagement ring becomes part of this budgeting.

Those who are against splitting the cost see it as a non-traditional move, and unromantic. The engagement ring is something that is meant to be a surprise to the bride. When she pays for half of it, or even helps with the shopping, it takes that away. As a result, it lacks the romance of having him get down on one knee and pop the question.

What is your opinion on splitting the cost of the ring? If you’re planning your Connecticut wedding, you’ll want to meet the best vendors. Coming to one of our upcoming bridal shows is an excellent way to do your planning and loads of fun.
