Use a sharpie to show where your ring is going #Ceremony Advice#ceremony#ring#ring alternatives#ring tattoo#steal-this-idea Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Apr 23 2014) Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Photo by June Lion Photography Here's an amazing idea for those of you who won't have your rings available on your wedding day. Maybe your custom rings won't be finished in time. Maybe your best woman lost them moment before the ceremony. Perhaps you aren't going to be wearing rings at all. Or, like Beth and Garrett, you're deciding to get your wedding bands tattooed at a later date. If so, grab a Sharpie and steal this idea: Garrett and I decided we'd get our rings tattooed later, so we settled on drawing Sharpie marker versions of the rings on each other in place of an actual ring exchange. To get some tattoo or Sharpie ring art inspiration, you might want to check out this post next: The wonderful world of wedding ring tattoos.
