That’s a beautiful ring! I think that just getting a band for him would be just fine! My FI and I are paying for our own wedding too, there’s something to be said about that. Perhaps after your 1 year anniversary you guys could get a band to go with that lovely e-ring.

My engagement ring doubles as a wedding ring. We can’t really afford a wedding ring right now, but my husband does have a wedding ring. Originally he was in the “If you don’t get one neither do I’ boat until I pointed out he could get a really bitchin ring for his wedding ring. Then he didn’t care anymore and wanted his ring!

I think it’s completely okay to go without a wedding band. I probably won’t end up getting a band because I can’t justify a few grand on a tiny bit of metal with some shiny stones in it (Especially since my husband hates my engagement ring and wants to replace it, and I think spending loads of money on two rings is ridiculous), as long as you’re happy with it, and he’s happy with it, more power to you.

My best friend wears her engagement ring as her wedding ring.  It’s something I was considering for awhile.  It’s definitely not necessary 🙂

You have such a beautiful ring I think its okay.  Honestly I think it would be worse if you bought whatever band just to have a band, and then dislike it and not end up wearing it.  What you can do eventually is renew your vows and then find a beautiful band that you will love =)

@thisorderistall:  

I honestly think having two rings is kind of pointless.  Surely the jewellry industry has done its best to convince women we need two rings instead of one.  I don’t think there’s anything wrong with your engagement ring becoming your wedding ring once you’re married.
