I wouldn’t have a problem with it and if you want to do something different go for you!  Keep in mind though that people you meet out and about may look at the no wedding band thing negatively and if you are ever in a job or proffession that you may not to where your e-ring or don’t want the large diamond to get chipped/ damaged/ in the way you have nothing to fall back on.

@morgyporgy:  You absolutely don’t have to if you don’t want to.  One of my good friends chose not to get a wedding band.  But @auggiefrog makes a good point….you could always get something very simple and inexpensive, and then just wear it during certain situations, i.e. if you go on vacation and don’t want to bring your e-ring, or if your husband has an important business dinner or something like that.

Does it matter to anyone else but you and I suppose your Fiance – nope, no one else really cares or will think twice about it.  It’s completely up to you.  If it was me, and my Fiance would prefer I have a band that screams married and not just engaged, then I’d take his feeling into consideration and proably get a band to make him happy.  If he doesnt care, and I didnt want one, then, ok, no band.  But also ask youself if you care that people will assume you are engaged and not married since you didnt add a band.  If not, there ya go, dont get one if you dont want it.

Its really all up to you. If you are happy with  just the e-ring then thats fine.

depending on your lifestyle there are probably going to be times when you cant / shouldn’t wear your engagement ring. If you and your husband are okay with not wearing anything at those moments then I guess that is perfectly fine  not to wear a wedding band. Otherwise it might be a good idea to get something, even if you don’t wear them togther, just a plain band or something for those times.

I could go either way. For me personally I would say yessssssssssss I have to have a wedding band haha. Doesn’t necessarily have to “go” with the ring, you could get something you love like a sapphire band or maybe?? OR…if you really just dont want one and love it on it’s own…dont get one 🙂

if I had your ring, I would totally want to pair it with a plain white gold band. they would look really pretty together.  

besides, there will be times that you will want a plain band anyway –like if you go camping or do any gardening.

Do whatever you want! Maybe you want to wait and get a matching one for an anniversary down the road. I think many styles would look nice with your ring. What about a band the same style, but with smaller diamonds? You could even do two thinner bands, but stack them on either side.

I have a similar conundrum, my ring just won’t fit well against a band. My best idea so far is to get a band and wear one or the other depending on my mood.

Do whatever you want!  But have you tried any bands on? You might change your mind?  Maybe you can have a band for your wedding and keep it for sentimental reasons or maybe just save it for your kids!
