4 Exciting, Quirky and Alternative Wedding Ring Ideas

You know us well here at Hargate Hall and you know we love all things unique and personal. This is true for all of the individual elements that make up your wedding, including the wedding rings.

Who says you have to stick to tradition? This is your wedding day. You have the freedom to make it perfect for you. Take the wedding rings, for example. Perhaps rings aren’t really your thing? Maybe you and your partner want something that better represents your relationship. We’ve put together a list of some wedding ring alternatives to offer you some inspiration…

Tattoo Rings

A permanent symbol of your love for one another. Plus, tattoos have the added bonus that they can’t be lost like rings can. It will always be there and can be a perfect reminder of not only your wedding day, but of all the precious memories you’ve made together.

It doesn’t have to be in the design of a ring, either. The beauty of tattoos is you have the creative freedom to choose whatever design you both want. It could also be a unique way to surprise your guests by not showing them off until the day.

Other Forms Of Jewellery

Maybe you would prefer a different form of jewellery instead of a ring. Engraved bracelets could be one option. You could have something significant like your wedding date engraved on them and even exchange them like you would the rings during your vows.

You could have the best of both worlds and opt for a ring necklace instead. This comes with some practical benefits such as not getting the ring dirty from tasks like cleaning, which it might do when worn on your finger. It’s a different but special way of keeping your ring close to you. Tradition with a twist.

An Experience

If jewellery isn’t right for you, a different option could be to put the money towards something else, something special that you’ll both savour. How about a romantic holiday? Or a unique experience such as a hot-air balloon ride? The possibilities are endless. The important thing is that it’s something you’ll love and treasure forever.


Release your inner Shakespeare and exchange poems instead of rings. You could stick to the traditional romantic feel of weddings, or maybe you want something memorable for slightly different reasons. Maybe it’s laughter you want. Dive into your memories as a couple, bring out those inside jokes. You could have real fun with them.

Yes, wedding rings can be very romantic, but they are by no means the only option available to you. We don’t always have to stick to tradition, and if there’s something more appealing to you than rings, then embrace that. Get creative and look for a fresh way to cement your love. It’s all up to you.
