    @honeybeexo:  I think wearing it as a wedding band is so sweet! It has so much history 🙂

    If he already likes it, there’s half the battle! Haha, I would just have him use that for his wedding band. I would assume that since it’s already a present you bought him, 7 years ago, it’s pretty good quality. I would only really be concerned about longevity/quality so he is able to wear it for the rest of his life. 🙂

    If he likes it, I don’t see why not.

    my wedding band is a gift my husband bought me for our first Christmas. I didn’t want anything else.

    Oh, I’m so glad someone started this thread!

    I’ve been wondering if it’s weird to want the ring my FI bought me on our first trip to be my wedding band.

    I think it’s definitely ok to do WHATEVER YOU WANT 🙂

    And I love the idea of wearing a ring that already has emotional significance.

    honeybeexo:  I think the sentimentality of it definitely means it should be the wedding band!! Plus 7 is a lucky number 😀
