Okay, I feel incredibly stupid even writing this, but I’m worried that my wedding band is too small. I specifically got one that was delicate and that matched the band on my engagement ring (2mm, flat edge)–but now I’m worried that when you look at my hand you can’t tell I’m wearing a wedding band, and therefore am married. I was really REALLY looking forward to wearing my wedding band every day, and I’ll say this though it’s idiotic–I was looking forward to people being able to tell I’m married. I’ve been wearing the ring for three weeks now (three weeks of married bliss!) and I’m worried it’s not right. DH and I are not super sentimental about the rings…he just got a new one because after 2 weeks of wearing his original he told me it was just wayyyy too uncomfortable to keep wearing for the rest of his life. So, no problem, got him a different one that he loves. He knows I’m concerned about mine, but he thinks it looks great and it’s just what I wanted. So, he suggested I turn to you ladies–what do you think? Too small? Just right? Can you tell I’m wearing it?
Sigh…I love my rings, and while I pride myself on not being super sentimental and on being pretty practical, I’d really LIKE to keep the ring that my husband put on my hand at our wedding, ya know? So, input appreciated!!

Personally, I can tell you are wearing it. But if it still is bothering you in a few weeks, then I would consider changing the band. Just because you get a different band doesn’t make you any less married!
fyi – I too got a very thin band to match the width of my e-ring.

Thanks for the feedback! Fellow thin wedding band wearers unite!

I will admit it is a little overpowered by the stones, but I still think it looks nice – and you can see it – just not as prominently.

I can tell you are wearing the band! Yes the stone on your e-ring is large compared to it but you cna still see it. If it bothers you, I would trade it in.

Looks like a married hand to me! 🙂 I do not think it should be any bigger. The set looks fantastic! Elegant, timeless, classic. You can certainly see the band beneath the ring, and I think if it were any wider, it would not allow your e-ring to be the star of the show (which it should be). I LOVE that 3-stone, btw, and I am usually much more of a solitaire gal. Your band does not distract from it, which is nice.
How about getting another band as an anniversary gift for your 1-year? That will give you something else to look forward to!

You can totally see your band. I’m in the same boat because I also got a 2mm wedding band. And most of my band hides under the center stone on my e-ring. But I think when most people see anything on the left ring finger, they assume you’re married, and only assume you’re just engaged when they can definitively only see one ring on there.

Thank you everyone!! I feel a lot better! I’m probably totally insane, but I was just convinced that people who asked to see my wedding band were looking at it and wondering where it was…but I picked it for a reason, right? You’re all so sweet and I appreciate the input and the reassurance!

I love the look! I personally love the look of a thin band and I think they look great together!

I think they complement each other very nicely! Yes, the stones are definitely big compared to your delicate band, but there’s no question that you’ve got a band on. They’re a beautiful set!
