Why two weddings bands? Why not? The more diamonds you can fit on your pretty little finger the better. It has absolutely no bearing on your love or relationship, that is absurd.

I have two wedding bands and I love how it looks. To me it looks more balanced and complete. My DH did say at first and I quote “now you are just being greedy.” But once he saw it with two he agreed it looked “perfect” to quote you.

Don’t fret this isn’t about anyone but you and your FI. Period.

I think it symoblizes the same thing whether you get two bands, one band, a guard, wrap, whatever. The rest is just aesthetics.

I will be having one plain band (no stones) because that will be easier to wear to work without my e-ring when I need to wear gloves everyday. I also like the look of a plain band, and since my center stone is a white sapphire, I wouldn’t want a diamond band to outshine it, and I couldn’t find a white sapphire band that I liked.

Plus I wanted something mismatched, which I got! It should be arriving via fedex tomorrow so YAY!!

someone told me that a wedding band should not have stones in because its back luck to “interrupt” the ring

also in russia people don’t have e-rings and wear their wedding bands on their right hand and only widowers wear the band on their left

im having two bands, with diamonds, on my left hand

i don’t care what people say, i like to think of the two wedding bands hugging the e-ring from both sides, sort of sealing it, and which hand it does not matter, i chose left because thats how people wear it here and its about showing that im taken

 I considered having two matching bands in addition to my ering. However, like your friend, I thought people might think it is weird that I have two wedding bands, plus I couldn’t figure out the logistics of having him slip on two. So I decided to hold off on the second one and will likely make it a push gift (with maybe a little diamond inside to differentiate it from the other one) so it will be a stack of rings from several milestones in my/our life.

The two-band option is getting really popular, based on the threads on this board. Lots of women love that look. What’s most important is your love and commitment to each other. Any physical symbol is totally up to you! Wear your wedding rings as you wish πŸ™‚

I have a little bit of an OCD……so with only one wedding band, it looks uneven. I already talked to the soon to be FI and he thought it would look pretty with two. It fixes my uneven thoughts! Haha.

I love the look of two bands! I’m actually talking my DH into getting me a second band πŸ˜‰ We’ve been married almost 6 months, and I told him for our first anniversary I would really love a second band! We just went this past weekend to try on the second band and see how it looks, and I loved it so much, honestly I don’t think I can wait 6 months, I’m hoping he’ll give it to me as a just because gift, but we’ll see =)

I like the symmetrical look so I wear two bands, one on either side of my e-ring. One is my wedding band, and for our first anniversary I got a matching one made (so I guess technically I wear a wedding band and an anniversary band?). Anyway I think it’s weird for someone to hassle you over wearing two. Your finger? Your choice πŸ™‚

I dont agree with or understand her take on it at all. What she must think of women who use their engagement ring as their wedding band! For me I like having two bands because I like symmetry. Tell her you’re doubly committed, and that’s why you want two. πŸ˜‰

here are mine:

My engagement ring actually looks like it has 2 bands.. but its just one ring. My wedding band fits between them.

Who cares what anyone else thinks?
