Sure, getting married is a huge step emotionally, but it isn’t going to place much of a dent in your finances, right?
Think again. The average man spends about $5300 on an engagement ring alone, and that’s not even the tip of the iceberg. In the United States, most couples spend about $30,000 on their big day.
Whether it’s the exorbitant cost or the blatant consumerism that bugs you when it comes to traditional wedding rings, a trend that’s becoming more popular as time passes is the wedding ring tattoo. Instead of shelling over tons of cash for a rock and a wedding band, a surprisingly large number of couples are bucking tradition and inking their ring fingers instead, leaving plenty of funds for other aspects of their big day.
