My Future Sister-In-Law actually didn’t. Neither did a lot of FI’s family members. but My e-ring is so simple, I wanted at least a little plain band to go with it.

It should be more about what you want. My Future Sister-In-Law had it cleaned and everything the day before, and didn’t wear it the morning of. The officiant blessed it. No big deal. Not having the extra ring doesn’t make you any less married. And, it’s more affordable that way.

Originally, I wasn’t going to. The store hubs bought my e-ring at closed down, and we hadn’t bought the matching band yet. I had a hard time finding one that matched, and decided to just forgo the band. But for some reason, the closer we got to the wedding, the more I wanted a band. It was literally a last minute purchase (2 days before the wedding) and doesn’t match perfectly, but close enough. I was so die hard on not having one and I have no idea what changed.

But ultimately, I say go for it!! I think it’s definitely a personal choice and I don’t think you lose any symbolism without a band, IMO.

I almost didn’t, but we had a big store credit because they missed Mr. DG’s planned proposal date for my ering.  So we went ahead and got one.  I thought I’d only wear it once in a while, but it looks really good with my e-ring, so I wear it all the time now.

One of my friends has a really large and ornate e-ring, so she opted not to get anything to go with it.  I think for some people it’s the right choice because their rings just look really by itself because adding another band takes away from the beauty of the e-ring.

we got a very plain band, but now I mostly wear JUST my e-ring

sometimes it is nice to have a plain band to wear out when you don’t want bling, tho

To be honest, I had no idea it was even a common thing to wear a second band until I got engaged because every woman in my family has always only worn 1 ring.  It’s a lot more common than you think and totally your preference.

I’m not one to wear two bands.  Either is my sister.  It would look wrong with her ring imho. 

I (just my preference) don’t want anything soldered together and I hate the feel when you have on two bands and they slip around each other.  I’ll be one of those who have the one ring!  I may have the second band, but if so, it’ll go on my right hand.  My sis finally got an eternity band (but her wedding and e ring is so gorgeous) and she wears it on her right hand.

Thanks for this post. Having just the e-ring hadn’t occured to me before, but I like the idea, because a band wouldn’t fit just right with my ring either. And it sounds like having one ring is more common than you would think.

If people really think the symbolism isn’t there without two rings, that’s pretty ridiculous. It’s funny how deeply ingrained some things are! Everyone should just do what’s right for them. Easier said than done, I know. 🙂
