I would get a straight channel set band.  I usually don’t like gaps but I prefer straight over contoured bands and lots of ladies have gaps between their e-ring and wedding band.

I am getting a wedding band but I plan on wearing it on my right hand as my e-ring setting is pretty detailed and I don’t want to take away from it.  I am not matching FI’s band at all.

Wedding band shopping is hard! I’m still struggling on mine. Do you have a preference over plain or diamond bands? Do you dislike a gap?  I could see a straight across eternity band making a great set if the gap doesn’t bother you. You could do a plain yellow gold band to really set off your ering. I’m a bit more traditional and I really really want to have a plain band which isn’t the norm anymore.

I would go plain yellow gold, same diameter. Simple and classic.

AnnaVictoria:  I’m not sure how high your setting is but I went and tried on some bands this weekend. With my ring I discovered that I really like it to but right up to my band and to achieve that best square edge bands work best with my ring. Hope this helps to give you a bit more of an idea

I love this next band but it’s sterling silver and i have no idea how that’d hold up with my palladium engagment ring.

p.s. sorry these are so big!

AnnaVictoria:  I think, if you want a band with some bling to it, a straight channel-set band would be really pretty. I think a prong-set band would look nice, too, but a channel-set would kind of give your whole wedding set balance and symmetry.

A plain band (yellow gold or even a different metal, if you like to mix) would also look gorgeous with it. I recently bought a plain domed rose gold band (2.5 mm), intending to stack it with my diamond wedding band and “anniversary” ERing. But I’ve been wearing just the anniversary ring and the plain band for the last several days and just loving the way they look together.

This isn’t the best picture, but it might at least give you an idea of what a plain band can look like next to a setting that has several stones on it. (hope that makes sense … >.O)

Here’s another picture of my ring with the diamond band:

Overall, I whole-heartedly agree with Strawberryshmoo. Wedding band shopping is hard work!

Lovely ring!  Based on some assumptions of my own making of the stone sizes in your engagement ring, I would think that a .25 carat semi-eternity band would work well.  You could do some research shopping with your FI one day at some of your local chain jewelers; it would give you an idea of what a band would look like before you ordered blindly.
