You can do whatever you want! My sil only wears one ring, and I may do the same. You can just tell anyone who asks that you love your ring as is and didn’t feel a need to have more jewelry to serve the purpose your ring already does. 

That said, you might want to consider a plain platinum (or gold) band so that you have something to wear when pave is not a good choice. If you don’t mind going ringless during certain activities then it’s fine, but there will be times when wearing pave isn’t safe for it, and so some ladies like a plain ring to wear when doing house work, yard work, cooking, outdoor activities, etc.

I wear my engagement ring as my wedding band now. I felt it would be too much with a wedding band, and it woul hide the scrollwork on the side of my ring. I’m also not a jewelry person, so this ring was perfect for me as I feel it stands best on its own. I do get asked when we’re getting married, but it doesn’t bother me too much. I just tell them we’re already married.

You do whatever you want. I personally like a band when I want to dress down or to do stuff that is yucky for my rings. Gardening, making hamburgers etc.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with doing that.

I have a super thin (like < 1.5mm) pave wedding band. It’s very delicate and adds a little more sparkle, but doesn’t take away from my engagement ring. I have yet to wear it since we’re not married yet lol but I’m excited! I also didn’t want anything to take away from my e-ring. So that’s an option if you decide you really do want a band.
