Are the wedding bands supposed to match?

Recommended Posts

My FI bought me a yellow gold engagment ring. I love it. I really don't have a preference between white gold and yellow gold. However, he is saying that he wants a white gold wedding band. Are the bride and groom's wedding band supposed to match?

they dont have to match at all. get what each of you likes. you have to wear it forever, so it might as well be something you love!

My FI did the same thing. Bought me a beautiful ring but in a gold setting. I love the ring, but (not to sound ungrateful) would have preffered a silver setting or white gold. Now - he went and got a tungsten band and our rings do not match.

 

I polled all of my married friends and they all said that after a couple of years, none of their bands match because (usually) the husbands lost their bands so they ended up getting something different.

 

After hearing that - I stopped worrying about it. I would rather him wear a ring that is comfortable to wear than somethng he would be worried about losing or didn't like.

I think it's personal preference. I'm not even sure what traditions say in regards to rings.... but I wouldn't worry. Go with what each of you want!

My original E Ring had the wedding band with it. He wasn't sure what he wanted. We found rings in St Thomas that we both fell in love with, since at that point I was just going to wear a wedding band. So we found matching bands, that have channel set diamonds which I can upgrade to a bigger carat amount for our anniversary! Now I've decided I want to wear my E Ring with my wedding band, so for Christmas we're having my diamond reset to a ring that will match our wedding bands! I can't be happier!!

Ditto. Get what each of you wants. I think matching rings is another one of those old traditions that has been thrown out the window. Thank goodness!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
