I don’t have mine in yet but they are quite mismatched in a way. His is white gold but with to dark texture with a celtic knot design to it where as mine is also white gold but with a milgrain vine design. I think the difference in texture and colours are beautiful though that symbolizes the uniquenes of each person and being wed acknowledging and appreciating those differences.

Our don’t at all!  Mine is white gold and his is titanium. Mine is polished and his is brushed.  His is textured and mine is smooth.  The list goes on!  I didn’t find it important that our rings matched.  Yours look great together!

We will have bands that don’t match! Mine will be diamond and peridot, and his will be a mokume gane style ring.

I Didn’t even Consider matching bands.  Lol. I have two white gold diamond eternity bands and he has a shiny plain tungsten band.

My FI’s future band and mine wouldn’t match. He’s adamant on getting a kauri ring. (wood) Then, maybe a silver ring as an heirloom/back-up ring, which could be resizeable.

I’m okay with it! I actually told him to pick something that he’d wear on special occasions. He can’t wear a band on his job — so, in his view, it’s not worth getting an expensive band.

@angeluscado:  No, ours don’t match at all either!  I hadn’t even thought of that until the Bee.  I want to wear what I want and he should wear what he wants!  No matchy-matchy necessary for me.
