    This may seem like a stupid question, but does the woman traditionally pay for the mans wedding ring?  I have no idea about this.

      I think they do. I know I paided for my FI's ring. It costed about 350. A much better deal then what my FI had to pay for my ring.

          I bought his ring about 1 month ago. Our wedding is 6 months away. It took about 4-6 weeks for the Jewlers to get the right size sent to them. So just plan ahead for that.

           

          The ring I want is a designer ring and goes for 2,100. He knows which ring it is ,but I believe is trying to pay off some bills before buying it. I think I put him in the hole with the engagement ring. I wouldnt be surprised if he doesnt get it untill January...We are getting married in February.

           

          I feel a little bad for asking for such an expensive ring after getting my engagement ring...But I absoltuly love this ring. I feel in love with it about a year ago, the first time I saw it. Its been at the Jewlers for a few years, so hopefully it stays there a few more months =)

            Don't feel bad, wiht my setting theo nly ring that can fit in with it for my wedding band is 1800, so I'm in the same boat as you.  And I feel bad but then there is a part of me thats like well I'm wearing it for the rest of my life so I  better like it.

             

            my FI wants to get a titanium ring, so I have to find out where to get that from. Thats a good tip though about the month for the sizing, I hope to get him off his ass right away to look!

              My husband got his own ring and insisted to pay for my wedding band (neither were very expensive).  My ring had to be custom made since my engagement ring is unusually shaped but it came out to only $450 or so.  He ordered his ring online (plain white gold band) and it was about $200 or so.  If he was getting me a super expensive ring, I would have insisted on paying for his ring just to even it out a little.  But every couple's finances are different so do whatever works for you guys!

                Both my band and his band are being added into the wedding budget.  No secrets or suprises.

                    Ha we don't really have a budget.  I know its one of the first things you're supposed to do, but we know what we like and if its cheap, if its expensive, whatever we don't have a choice.  The only budget we had was for the wedding package / resort package, and thats the biggest.  Beyond that, nothing.

                      Thats what we are doing too. We know much much money we have to spend, from tax returns/1st time home buyers credit and such but if something doesnt fit into that, then we are just going to use regular paychecks and creditcards.

                       

                      If i really want something, or if he does, we are going to get it because its our wedding however...for the most part we are very practical people....Tho I really dont think i'll ever hear the end of it for booking our expensive photographer. It was a must for me, but my engineer brained FI doesnt really get it / appreicate it.
