i have two wedding bands and theyre both super sparkly so i got an inexpensive simple white gold band at walmart to swap them out with if i feel the need.

@MrsEME:  I dont wear my set to work for a few reasons, so I wore a plain band for a while and then my husband surprised me with a more meaningful one for Christmas. I say you should get one!

@MrsEME:  I am getting a diamond wedding band also (definitely not the norm where I am). I am also concerned that I will miss a plain band. But if I get one, I want it to be special and from FI so I wouldn’t mind wearing it in place of my wedding band. In my situation, I am thinking about asking FI to give me the plain band on our wedding day or honeymoon. Since you are already married, I think it would make a LOVELY anniversary present, especially for your first anniversary! I know you have a little while to wait, but this way you will have two special rings 🙂

We’re not even married yet, and we’ve already talked about how I’d love an anniversary band to even out my set (I’m also weird with parallellism, and it looks strange to me to have the wedding band on the top but nothing on the bottom, hahah).

Go for it!

I don’t see anything wrong in you wanting a simple gold band.  I actually wanted another one of my bands to wear on the other side, but considering it was about $2200, I don’t think that’s happening anytime soon Undecided

I think a LOT of women do that! I wouldn’t think it was at all unusual! I’d ask for it for your first anniversary.

I’m having one on each side, but neither can be worn by themselves because it would look silly to have the band that goes with my ring worn alone. I’m going to get a tungsten ring (cheap in price but good in quality) plain to just wear if I don’t want to wear my ring to work or something sometimes (I’m a nurse).

I have a gold band with an engraving of flowers that I wear while walking the dogs.  I got it for school since I won’t be able to wear my wedding set (RT program).

Valentine’s Day could work.  I got a plain band for our 1 year wedding anniversary, because I, too, wanted a plain band to wear sometimes.  Really, though, I could have gotten it at any time; it’s not the occassion that makes it meaningful, to me, but it’s the fact my DH gave it to me that makes it special.

@MrsEME:  sure! Get it as your vday gift! I knew I would want a plain and a sparkly so we planned it that way (and none of the rings match at all!).
