::sigh:: i don’t understand what’s wrong with me–i think all the wedding stress is getting to me. after going to 300 stores, saturday we found this ring and bought it today:
it’s 1.8mm, my e-ring is 2.5mm at its widest point and it tapers in to about 2.25mm.
i love how dainty it looks with the milgrain and i love that it looked like glitter–but didn’t detract from my ering (below). but now i’m freaking out. now i’m worried that it won’t look good. that they should be the same width. i was afraid that if they were the same width it’d be too much on my hand, like too much metal on my finger, but now i’m afraid that the wedding band is too insignificant or that it doesn’t look that good. AHHH my fiance favored a completely plain band so i guess that’s also making me second guess it, although he says now that he thinks it looks good–that he just prefers plain wedding bands and that of all the ones with diamonds i tried on, this one he actually liked.
i don’t even know why i’m freaking out. i need some reassurance/some honest criticism, because i can STILL go back tomorrow and cancel the order. help!
this is NOT ME, but it would look a lot like this (although the band would be a bit thinner):

They look beautiful together! But you should feel confident in your decision. I’ve been having feelings of indecision in selecting my wedding band–I’ve tried on so many and still just can’t decide. Everytime I am reminded by an associate that I need to pick the ring I feel comfortable with because I will be wearing it for the rest of my life. It’s great advice that you should follow too.
So if you love this wedding band, be happy with it and don’t second guess yourself. And if you don’t, then continue searching for the ring that is meant for you.

@cartascartas: I think that’s a very beautiful band! I don’t think your band needs to match the width of your Engagement Ring. BUT if you feel uncomfortable then you should follow your gut.

I actually got a thicker band than my ering so i dont think it matters that it is the same width or not! It just depends on what how you intend to wear them. Are you going to wear both together all the time or just the band after you get married? I got a thicker band in case I just want to wear it alone..but when together they still look good…nice bling! hehe..

That wedding band you picked out is extremely beautiful, but I can also see your FI’s point of view because a plain band would look amazing with your ring as well. I, too, have a round solitaire, and I chose a diamond band, but mainly because I wanted a wedding band that made a statement on its own, and I didn’t get that feeling with a plain band by its self. I’m not sure if this helps you or not. I truly don’t think you can go wrong with either (a diamond or plain band) when it comes to a classic round soltaire!
FYI, I completely understand your panic! I was the same way (even after having my wedding band custom made!)

I also meant to say: in regards to the widths, I also agree that they do not need to be the same width. I, like another previous poster, opted for a wedding band that was actually thicker than my e-ring so that it can stand, solidly, on it’s own– it really is a preference. Like others have said, go with your gut!!! In your heart, you already know what to do 🙂

I think it’s a beautiful ring. I think it would look absolutely gorgeous with your e-ring.
But I know how you feel. When Darling Husband and I picked out my wedding band, I thought I loved it in the store, but when we got it home, I didn’t love it so much. In the end, we ended up getting something completely different for me. Now I love my wedding ring and I’m so glad we went back to look for something different, because I wouldn’t have ever been happy with the first one we bought.
I think if you’re having second thoughts that you should continue looking for a ring that you are totally in love with…

I think the wedding band makes the combo unique, but I agree with everyone here: follow your heart, because at the end of the day, it’s you who will wear it for the rest of your life. =)

@cartascartas: Umm omg that band is GORGEOUS, and I think they’ll go GREAT together! I don’t think you’ll notice the 0.45mm difference at all, and you could always get a plain band to stack if you wanted to.
