    I was going to say what the other girls already did. My addition is that you should both have what you like and what you want, regardless of colour. Its for him to wear, not you and vice versa. So, good chioce to let him have his yellow gold.

      Well said!! I tend to think it's all about me sometimes! :) Poor guy is already nervous about this whole wedding thing...the least I can do it let him get the ring he wants! I'm evil!

        my ring is platinum, and his is a white gold w/some celtic knot design - they totally don't match at all and we didn't even thing about them matching. he knew he wanted a ring w/an irish influence, and i didn't.

          I don't think it is weird at all. They don't have to be matchy-matchy to each other as long as you both are happy with it. I like the idea of mixing the metals though, like Kelly suggested. Although, my e-ring is both, so I guess I am partial to that already!

          My fiance's great-uncle is making us rings out of old quarters (or is it nickels? whatever used to be silver). He uses a spoon and it takes him a few months, so we called him like as soon as we got engaged. I am really excited for that ring. Didn't mean to steal your thread!

            I agree with the other girls that your rings don't have to match. My FSIL and her husband have totally different rings, and I have never thought anything of it. I also really like the idea of a two-toned ring for you FI. Then, you could still feel like they "match" a little. Let us know what you decide!

              I agree, they don't need to match.

                I don't think it matters one bit. You can both wear what is most comfortable, flattering for you.

                  My FI hasn't decided for sure but he is really considering a yellow gold band for himself. My ring is white gold and I personally like that better than yellow gold. He trys on the white gold and he thinks it looks funny on him. I think i looks weird but I think more because neither of us is used to him with a ring on!

                  He tried on a yellow gold band and it actually seemed to mesh better with his fair complexion and light hair.

                  So the question is...is it wierd for him to have yellow gold and me have white gold??
                  I don't think it's weird at all - you guys should both get what you like and what looks good on you. He's the one who will have to wear it everyday so he needs to like the way it looks!

                    I fell in love with the clipart and knew I wanted to use it for my monogram. I'm also making luggage tags out of it. I belong to another forum (weddingbells) and there is a woman on there that makes monograms for members. I sent her the clipart and told her what I wanted and she graciously made it for me.

                      how nice of her...i need to figure out how to make one of those...do you still have the clip art that you would want to share? I think i like that for my save the date magnets instead of my boarding pass magnets...
