love the idea of matching bands too! If my SO didn’t have his heart set on a specific type of band I’d suggest we get matching ones.

Not weird!  I think it’s a little weird how many people *don’t* have matching rings.  I feel like part of the symbolism is that they should match.

@gizfeehily:  my husband and I have matching wedding bands. They are both comfort fit low dome platinum rings. I actually didn’t think about it too much. I think my husband just expected to have matching rings and I just followed his lead.

When me and my husband married we had matching plain white gold wedding bands.  I didn’t have an engagement ring when we married.  That came later.  We upgraded, later,  to matching channel set diamond wedding bands.  I also have a milgrain and rose gold wedding band that I wear stacked with my e-ring, when I want to change the look.  However, when I wear my wedding band alone, it always matches his. Laughing

I love matching bands! I say go for it if that’s what you want. 🙂

I love the idea of matching rings. Unfortunately my FI is a glazier so works with metal all day so any type of gold is out for him, he’s decided on a Tungsten ring which is the hardest metal in existence so at least we won’t be regularly replacing it!

We’re getting matching bands. That was more important to me than matching the engagement ring.

We’re getting matching bands too. We first thought of getting non matchy ones but while we were thinking of what style to get, we realized that we both just wanted plain thin bands. So that’s what we got.

We’re ordering the same design in different sizes. Mine will be 2.5mm wide and his will be 3.5mm. Likewise, the actual size of the ring will differ. Otherwise, they will be identical (and match my engagement ring). We both love the notion of having matching rings.

I wanted to do that, but couldn’t find any.  If my jeweler was anything to go by, it is not common anymore.  I’m a little sad I didn’t keep looking, but for us it turned out that FI liked different things than I did anyway.

i like the idea of matching bands, just make sure that it goes well with your e-ring!

@moriah:  +1!! I like how matching bands “connect” a couple and most plain bands do match with the e-ring.

In Europe it is very common to have matching bands, I haven’t seen that many in the US and on most sites there is not much choice.
