    So since before I was engaged, I knew I wanted more than one wedding band. What I mean is I want two completely different wedding bands. One to match my E-ring (with diamonds) and the other that is plain white gold that I would wear on its own. The diamond set would be for work, going out and dressing up, and the plain one would be for the gym, camping and chilling out at home. My FI thinks I'm a little crazy, but my mom has two rings so to me it's not out of the question. The other thing is, I love my e-ring and I want to wear it, but I have fallen in love with a thick plain wedding band that just doesn't work with my solitaire. I really want both and I don't want to wait to get the plain one after the ceremony because I don't feel as if it would mean as much. I just can't seem to find one that suits both my needs. So...

    a) Am I crazy to want both?
    B) How can I incorrporate 2 bands into the ceremony?

    Any feedback/suggestions would be helpful.

      I'm finding myself in a similair situation! I hope to have (!?) a wedding band that matches my E-ring... However, there is this fabulous, thick, chunky Bvlgari wedding band that I have a hankering for - a little less dressy/formal.

      I don't quite know how you'd work both into the ceremony... but don't feel bad for wanting both!

        no i dont think your crazy, and if u are- tht makes two of us ;o) i want this too. i told my sister and she looked at me as if i had two heads but whatever.

        i never thought about incorping htem both into ceremony. i was going to ask our priest to bless the plain band, ? not too sure.

          i have been thinking about this as well b/c my wedding band is an eternity band of diamonds and i don't necessarily wnat to wear it for travel, working out, moving, etc.

          i don't think you are crazy at all!

            Thanks guys! At least I know I haven't totally lost it (just partially, haha). I think having the priest bless both rings is a perfect way to make both rings special but because we aren't doing a religious ceremony, I'm struggling with this aspect. I was thinking of wearing my plain band for the first time on my right ring finger on the wedding day. It wouldn't exactly be a part of the ceremony, but it would still be special.

              I don't think you're crazy at all!! I think more than one w-band is totally within reason, especially if you have always wanted it.

                I have 4 wedding bands. One for either side of my e ring that matches it kinda. One that is a plain silver band that Matt's uncle made for the both of us. And my Mom passed along my Nana's wedding band to me, that is a wide gold band. Mostly, so far, I wear my ering and 2 bands together, and my Nana's on my right hand. But it was no problem at all incorporating all of them into the ceremony. We had the minister bless them all at the same time, and then only used the ones that we were going to wear then, and handed the others back to the best man to hold until after the ceremony.

                  I'm going to have 2 wedding bands as well, because my bands are very thin, so I'm going to stack them (they are thin eternity bands). I think it would be easy to incorporate both into the ceremony, but if not, you can always just have one as your "true" one, and the other is just an extra...?

                    Nope do what you want - they are your rings lol

                    I managed to persuade FI to get me a sapphire ring too (mind you I had to pay for that untill he's got the cash and it was cheap!!) so i'll be wearing 2 E rings and one dress ring all on the same finger lol

                      I have three. Two for either side of my ring and one for working out gardening and whatever else. It matches Fi's band. It's nothing spectacular. Just a band.
