We bought a pretty inexpensive wedding band to go with my very simple solitaire e-ring. The combo looks nice, but after a few months of wearing it, I think I just like the classic, clean look of the solitaire by itself. I think I’ll just save the band to wear when we are traveling and stick with the “e-ring only” for daily wear from here on out.
Anyone else just wear their e-ring and forego the wedding band?

No, but I don’t think its that unusual! 🙂

I know a girl who only wears an e-ring. It is slightly annoying for her because people think she is engaged, and not married yet – who knew people looked that closely at your finger??

I don’t personally, but my boss doesn’t have a wedding band, just her e-ring.

My cousin did that. she gets a lot of grief for it, but its your hand and you should wear whatever feels most comfortable to you.

i think that’s totally legit. they’re your rings, do what works for you!

I am planning to wear my e-ring as a wedding ring after we get married, and I even told my FI I dont want a wedding band. It is your ring, your hand, and you should wear whatever ring you want, as long as it symbolizes being a married woman to you.

I’m not having a wedding band with my ring. At the ceremony, I will just take it off my finger and use it as my wedding ring.

I have considered no band, i also like the look of my solitaire by itself

I totally considered this because I love how my ering looks alone. Ultimately though– I think I’ll end up getting a band. But whatever you want I think is totally fine.

Actually most of the women I know don’t have bands and only wear one ring after they marry. I’m doing a band (actually 2) because I like the look, but it should be entirely up to your taste whether you want one or not!

I was just wondering this same thing today. I love my engagement ring- it is vintage (from 1929) and has a lot of detailing that would no longer be visible with a wedding band also on my hand.
We decided today that I am just going to wear the engagement ring as my wedding band after it is official. I feel much better about that decision now after reading these posts.

I think you can and should wear whatever you are most comfortable in.
Many of my friends and family only wear their wedding rings. They only wear their E-rings when they dress up or go somewhere special. Sometimes I actually feel silly around them sporting my E-ring AND wedding band all the time. I think that they think it’s weird…but I’m still pretty attached to both rings and I feel naked without them. Plus I like how they look together…
This is totally a personal decision. However, I also think it’s good that you have a wedding band because there are times when I only wear a band ring because it’s not practical to wear anything prong set that could get damaged or really dirty.

Totally ok! You sholud do what makes you happy! I am doing the opposite, no engagement ring but just a wedding band. Culturally, rings aren’t a big part of the wedding and so I don’t see the point of having TWO. So, with that being said, just wearing one ring sounds fine! A lot of ladies I work with just sport their e-rings!

My boss doesn’t wear her wedding band. Her ring looks like it’d be hard to find a matching band and it looks great alone!
