@Soon2BD-CBee:  Hi there 🙂 I am also from the UK so I get that the general trend is for a plain band but I also didn’t want that! I got a channel set diamond band for my wedding ring.

 

 

 

I think it’s fine if you want to wear your e-ring as a WB but there are a couple of things to think about – it might always look like you’re engaged rather than married if you don’t have a second band and if your e-ring doesn’t look like it’s an ‘all-in-one’ and people might ask to see your band which may get annoying if you have to explain. There might be situations where you don’t want to wear your e-ring but want to wear a ring on that hand. Having a band handy might be a good idea even if you decide not to wear it all the time. 

 

 

 

FI paid for my e-ring out of his own money but our wedding rings were purchased out of our joint account. My fiance would have paid for my wedding ring but I wanted our WRs to be something we’ve BOTH contributed towards since marriage is a joint thing. My sister’s husband paid for everything for her and that’s the way they wanted it so it really depends on what you agree with your FI.

I agree with previous poster about people assuming you’re not married because you don’t have a wedding band. You’ll even have to explain it over and over to friends and family about why you decided not to have one. I’d feel so weird getting married but not actually having a wedding band, but I guess it’s your decision so do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

The wedding bands will come out of our wedding fund so I guess we are both paying for it.

@Soon2BD-CBee:  I’m planning on wearing only my e-ring most of the time, after the wedding I intend for it to become my wedding ring. I adore it and it stands well by itself. I’m buying a big bag of hematite rings for times when I’m wanting to wear something else with it. (I’m allergic to the inexpensive metals.) It doesn’t look super traditional as an e-ring either, kind of somewhere in between, so it’s perfect!

I use my ering as my wedding ring. People occasionally ask me when I’m getting married and I just say “I’m actually already married.” I don’t think it’s a big deal. My ering just works better alone I think.

@Soon2BD-CBee:  Oh wait sorry I’m a little confused. Where you are from, do you stop wearing the engagement ring once you are married?

@Soon2BD-CBee:  Ohh ok well that makes more sense. I thought if you didn’t have a wedding band NEXT to your engagement ring, you would look forever engaged. We generally wear both here in Australia. 

In that case then I think it’s totally fine to change the norm if that’s what you want to do because you want to wear the ring you love! But like you said, you have heaps of time so maybe keep trying on wedding bands and maybe one day, you’ll fall in love with one?
