So I want a white gold diamond wedding band as my wedding ring. I absolutely DO NOT like yellow gold. However, Fiance and his family want him to wear his great Grandmothers wedding band (just a plain gold band, neither feminen or masculine) and have it resized for him to wear as his wedding ring. One of his middles name is her last name, so he was named after her and it means a lot to him and his family.
Will it look odd that we have mis-matching wedding bands? I’m sure this is not a big deal, just trying to get some perspective.

No. I dont think it’ll look odd to have mismatched rings… Really the only time they’ll be together is before you put them on….
I always find it kind of weird that people focus so much on their rings matching… Really, how often are the rings side-by-side as a set?

Good to know! I think maybe they worry about it because most wedding photographers like to get the picture of the bride and grooms hands with the rings on. And some people might thing it looks weird if the rings are two totally different colors.

I don’t think it matters, at least not these days. Mine is rose gold and FI’s is black 🙂

My husband’s ring is titanium and mine is rose gold…it really doesn’t matter, just personal preference 🙂

I honeslty don’t know anyone in real life who has matching wedding bands these days. So I don’t see a problem with this.
Btw, I think it is really cute and sweet that your Darling Husband will wear his grandma’s ring.

I have yellow gold because I love yellow. DH has sterling silver. He refuses to wear yellow gold – it has to do with being enlisted rather than an officer in the Navy. NBD. Bonus – his everyday ring was $30! Because he is ok with anything, he chose a ring from a kiosk in the mall. He does have a “fancy” ring too, but he only wears that occassionally.

Thanks for making me feel better ladies!!!
And yes, it melted my heart when I heard he wanted to do this. =)

My Darling Husband chose a very masculine titanium with oxidized blue stripe in the middle. I chose a feminine vintage leafy wedding band with milgrain. There was no way our tastes could be consolidated into a matching set. The rings are only together in the wedding pictures, that’s it.
