    My mom pretty much freaked out when I told her ours won’t match, but we have very different tastes and I think that standard isn’t held by most couples now.  Mine is a thin band of white gold with diamond chips in it.  His is a tungston carbide band with a cool-looking woven center.  Very different, but both suit us.

    @lisha_1988:  I think “traditionally” they matched– wedding bands would be the same, the exact same, just sized differently, but I think now that there are so many options for metals and styles, it’s not a big deal anymore for them to be different. Was your friend older/more old fashioned? I think my parents’ sets matched, but then my dad lost his ring, and my mom bought him an alternative metal one, yellow gold vs. tungsten, and it wasn’t a big deal!

    No. Mine is a sapphire band, and his is plain white gold.

    Nope, and it wasn’t a priority for us. We both wanted rings that we liked and would be comfortable wearing. Darling Husband turned out being incredibly picky about his ring, so I’m glad we didn’t have any “matchy-matchy” requirements for him to meet! We may have been searching for a long time. 🙂

    We want them to atleast look similar. After all they are a outward symobolism of our union together! But I feel for most people getting married these days there are simply so many options. When our parents were all getting married you had pretty much one choice… yellow gold! lol OH how times have changed.

    Mine does, but it is by chance.

    All of the rings are from Tiffany’s, but that is where it ends.  His is a very sleek and stylish band, mine is blingy.  He didn’t want diamonds, so I wasn’t going to make him.

    @lisha_1988:  What I think is hilarious is that, I never had a strong opinion on them matching…but when we were looking for my ring, he was like, oh, I guess I’m going to need to look at white metals only then.. I was like WHAT?!?! He’s like, aren’t they supposed to match? I think he’s a little excited now that he has all these options!

    Ours don’t match at all. We didn’t really care if they did or not. We picked something that went with my ring and he picked something that he liked.

    I want a diamond band and I have very light skin. He wants all metal and he has fairly brown skin. I think platinum w/ diamonds would like ridiculous on him and a plain yellow gold band would look ridiculous on me, hehe

    The only things that matches is that it’s white gold, the rest doesn’t match at all.

    My SO wants our bands to be made from the same piece of metal. We talked to a jeweler about it, who said that they could use the leftover metal from one ring to make the second. SO is all about this. I think the symbolism is really cool– hopefully the logistics of getting it to work won’t be tricky (i.e. really restrict the bands we can choose from, etc.– basically, I’m worried about falling in love with something that will make “same metal” impossible!).

    Im classy and elegant and he is rough around the edges and colors outside the lines.

    That being said, Ours will definitely NOT match!

    I will get what I want and so will he, we have this saying, you be you and let me be me, this includes rings.
