We’re doing one band, then another band when we have our first child. It could also be an anniversary band (so you could start wearing it after 1 year, 5 years, etc.)

ETA: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having 2 bands from the beginning. I love the way it looks, and it would be hard to wait! But if I did that, I would want them both presented to me at the ceremony.

@Jenny_Loo_Davis:  I love the idea of symmetry. 🙂 Maybe have him give it to you on your honeymoon? I know lots of people wait until the one year anniversary or a birthday, but I wouldn’t want to wait that long. haha

@Jenny_Loo_Davis:  A friend of mine got 2 bands at her wedding.  The total set looks gorgeous, by the way.  She just didn’t wear her engagement ring during the ceremony so during the exchange, she received all 3 rings.  They may have had them soldered already, though.  No one asked why she was getting 2 bands.

I have three bands, and no one has mentioned anything about it. At a glance people probably think its just a ring gaurd, as they basically has the same look as three rings. DH and I have been together for 8 years now, married two years, and honestly, it would just have been ridiculous to “wait” until a special date to get another ring. We’re not having kids, and we’ve lived together for 8 years too (moved in together when we started dating due to stupid dorm problems, and I just never moved out). Nothing “magical” happened because we got married, and our number didn’t reset because we got married. I wore my ering on my finger, and DH put both bands over it during the ceremony and then I corrected them after the ceremony.

Rings don’t have to symbolize certain things – they can symbolize whatever you want them to, or whatever really. Do what makes you happy and don’t worry about what other’s think.

I am really big on symmetry and I love the look of two bands. In fact, my wedding ring looks like it has two bands, however it is one ring.

I guess I don’t see why he can’t put both rings on you at the ceremony. Then you wouldn’t have to try to justify or force symbolism on the second band… they’d just be your wedding rings. Lots of brides have two bands these days so it isn’t out of the ordinary. A few celebrity examples are Reese Witherspoon, Hilary Duff, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Kaley Cuoco, etc.

@Jenny_Loo_Davis:  In the extremely unlikely event that anyone ever asks you about your third band “We liked the look of two wedding bands, so we got two” is a perefectly acceptable response.

If you’re reaching for symbolism to justify something, it probably doesn’t really symbolize that to you, and it’s fine to just like things a certain way and own it.

@Jenny_Loo_Davis:  I will have two bands.  I have my great grandmothers wedding band and FI wanted to buy me a band…so we picked out a sapphire and diamond band as well.  I plan on wearing the sapphire band the day of the wedding, and FI will give me my great grandmothers band and e-ring during the ceremony.

@Jenny_Loo_Davis:  I’m getting 2 wedding bands. One is amethyst because it’s really sentimental to me – but I’m worried about the longevity of amethyst (soft stone) so I got a diamond eternity as well. We will include all bands in the ceremony. 

We are also doing a ring warming ceremony – and both wedding bands will be included in that as well 🙂 

I think it looks especially nice if all the rings are dainty. What width is the band on your e-ring?

Here’s my set –

1.7-1.8mm (can’t remember) band on e-ring

1.8-2.0mm amethyst band

1.1mm diamond eternity

meh, I never liked the stacked look, but I know I’m in the minority.
