Hey there bees,
I’ve seen so many threads about e-ring upgrades, and I’m wondering if anyone has wanted to upgrade their wedding bands after the fact?
Some info: H and I were lucky enough to have my mom help us with reception costs. We paid for everything else for the wedding, so by the time we went wedding ring shopping, H was put off by the price tags on all the diamond bands we both loved. H had a budget in mind (and I wasn’t working at the time, so I didn’t push it), and that eliminated the chance of me getting anything fancier.
I absolutely LOVE my e-ring – he did a fantastic job with that on his own. I just thinking that I’d like a wedding band that I love as much as I love the e-ring Thoughts?

What about doing an anniversary band in the future to sparkle it up? Then it will still have that sentimental value, but you can wear them all together or switch them up depending on what kind of things you’re doing.

I agree with an anniversary band. My sisters wedding band is just like yours, it came with her e-ring. They plan on getting a little more bling as an anniversary ring because she also wants a bit more than a simple band. If you don’t like the idea of having three rings, I say that you can totally upgrade if you both are cool with it.

Yes, thanks! I agree. I originally wanted to do some sort of anniversary band so we’d just love it and there would be no need for an upgrade later on. I mentioned it before the wedding when I saw a SUPER good deal (aka within his budget) on one we had both liked and H was like “you’re not happy with what I already got you?” which makes me feel kind of guilty. So I don’t know how he would feel about it now.
I feel like there’s just too much metal for my little sz 4 finger, and I almost prefer wearing e-ring by itself.

I think that your engagement ring would look really pretty with a simple pave band. I don’t think it looks like too much metal at all though! Gauging from your husband’s reaction when you brought it up I’d probably steer away from upgrading though and look at the anniversary band option.

I’m getting two weddings bands, one plain and one 3/4 eternity, and I plan on wearing only one band at a time. I’m getting married with the plain band, but I don’t think that the second band will mean any less to me when I wear it. I don’t think there is anything wrong with getting another wedding band you could wear with your e-ring. A good compromise may be an anniversary band.

Here’s the way I’m presenting my future anniversary ring–eventually I’ll be pregnant and my hands will swell up. So I’ll need something a few sizes bigger to wear then… 😉
