2 wedding bands or 1?

Recommended Posts

There is a "newer trend" to have 2 wedding bands surrounding your engagement ring. Is this just for show and bling?? Should the 2nd wedding band come as an anniversary gift years after you've been married? I can't lie and say it doesn't look gorgeous with 2 bands.... but is this something you get up front or have to earn?

I think it's all your personal preference. I want two bands only because the band that completes the set is thin, so another band would just make the whole look. If you can fit it in your budget why not, if it will make you happy.

I also would like 2 bands, but to ensure that we stay within our budget I'm only getting one. We decided to go with a band that has more diamonds to make sure that it had the shine factor to match my engagement ring. I'm satisfied with getting the band at a later date. It was something that I do not ABSOLUTELY need for wedding day.

 

I think it's all personal preference anyways.

We considered two bands, one for our legal ceremony, and then one for our wedding in the DR. We changed our minds and decided it would be nice to get the second one on our anniversary. I say if you can afford it and it's what you want then go for it.

 

By the way I am curious how you would earn the second ring, hehe:)

It's definitely your preference, My DH got me to bands because he liked the look of the ring. One of my friends got her second band as an anniversary present from her husband a year after they got married.

I got two bands. I didn't plan it. I just have a simple solitaire ring and all the bands just didn't look right. So when we tried on bands the jeweler put a band on both sides and it looked "complete" It's not b/c of more bling but the only thing that looked right with my E-ring. He put both bands on at our wedding. I didn't know it was a new style either.

My e-ring can come with 2 bands.. the same band on either side just reversed so it fits into my e-ring properly. For the wedding we are only going to get the 1 band, just because we can't really afford both right now. However at some point I will get the other side, just because it looks great and really completes the look. Maybe for our 1 year anniversary? :)

I am getting two bands. My e-ring was custom made and has a really skinny band with pave diamonds on each side and surrounding the center stone. I just thought it looked better to have a matching band on each side and FI agreed. The lady that made my e-ring is making the two bands for about the same price as one band cost at other jewelers. If that were not the case I would have only received one now, and the second for our first anniversary.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
