mine is only about 1.5 to 2x thicker than the band of the e-ring.  For me it wasnt about the size of my fingers,.  I tried on the matching band to my e-ring, and it fit so flush that it didnt look like I was wearing a wedding band.  so we went thicker.  Heres a pic

I don’t have a photo, but  my wedding band is twice as think as my e-ring.  We got my band custom made with my mother’s first engagement diamond in the center, and that meant the ring had to be wide.  I think it’s beautiful.  Also, whatever you want to wear is what you should get.  The trend for our  mothers were round diamonds set with four prongs in yellow gold, and very few people go with that today.  Do what you love and what means most to the two of you.

I don’t have any pics yet, but I plan on getting a thnker band. I am not a jewelery type girl and I know at some point I’m going to want to wear my wedding band by itself. So, I want the wedding band to have it’s own weight.

 

I found these examples:

This one is the same size, but you get the impression one is bigger because the band stones are offset of center.

Yeah, I’ve thought about the offset stones band, but when I wear it by itself, I don’t want it to spin. My engagement ring moves a bit, but I notice it before the stones are on the bottom. I don’t want stones on the under side of my hand, I’ll just lose them. I want some kind of decoration, but we’ll see.

If you can take a pick before you order them, I’d love to see what you end up with!

My sister’s set is similar to the one in the first photo… she wears her wedding ring on her right hand, and her engagement ring on her left hand.  Not sure if you considered this option!

My wedding band is at least 3 times wider than my e-ring band. My wedding band is approximately 4.5 to 5mm while my e-ring’s band is roughly around 1.5 to 2mm. 

I chose a thick wedding band because I felt that it is the symbol of your union as husband and wife — therefore it should appear substantial and visible on your finger (aside from the e-ring).

My band is slightly bigger than my e ring. I ordered the same size in both. They r slightly tighter together but in the winter should fit just fine 🙂 can’t wait to wear then both when we are married in Oct!
