I have a very unique e ring and can’t find a band that fits with it (in style or litterally!) would it be bad not to have a band? i don’t care to wear nuch jewelry, & certainly not anything bulky. plus. I really love my e-ring, so why get a band?

If that’s what you want, then go for it! You shouldn’t have to wear a ring unless it’s what you want. If you like your e-ring as is and you’re OK without a band, then that’s all that matters! Plus, you’ll save money not buying another ring. 🙂

@ORella2012: What does your e-ring look like? Can you post a pic?

While you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to, I do always look at people’s ring fingers to determine their marital status. Without a band, I’d think you were engaged, not married.
I like the idea of a band on your left ring finger and your engagement ring on your right hand, but ultimately, you should do whatever makes you happy!

I think if it’s a matter of rings not matching, you can wear one on the right and one on the left hand, but no one can make you wear a ring if you don’t want to!
You could also get a band and wear it if you want to give your e-ring a day off 🙂

You don’t have to wear a band. What does your Fiance think? If it is important to him that you wear a band, then I’d follow pp’s suggestions and wear your ering on your right hand and a band on your left hand. If it doesn’t matter to him, then save a few bucks and don’t purchase a band. However, know that many people do look at ring fingers to determine marital status, like pp stated. If you don’t care about that, then do what you want.

I definitely don’t think you must have a band if you don’t want to.
However, personally the band means a lot more to me than the engagement ring. In our wedding ceremony it will represent our bond and devotion as a couple. So the symbolism of that is really meaningful in my opinion.
If you don’t carry that sentiment with the band, and your Fiance doesn’t mind then of course it’s OK not to have one!

I don’t wear one! I like having one ring, personally. Just like my Grandmother did… I do not think it is necessary at all.

I think it depends on your culture/beliefs. Some religions require a wedding band.
