I recently picked up my sparkly diamond wedding band. Most women I know have plain bands (I am based in the uk), but I fell in love with mine.
My girlfriends were discussing wedding rings. They said they didn’t understand why women bought diamond bands as the most important ring on your finger was the ERing. Apparently all wedding bands should be plain. I had hoped that the younger generations at least were starting to embrace sparkly bands.
What are your thoughts?

My wedding is on Sunday. I choose Sunday because everything was cheaper. And i do mean everything!
I am fully aware that people “frown upon” Sunday weddings, but here is my theroy. We are the only ones paying for any of this.
We don’t have that many out of town guests. I think you should do what works best FOR YOU! remember while yes you should want your guess to be comfortable, you have to be comfortable too.
If people leave early…GREAT LET THEM. Don’t feel bad at all. I assume you are sending out save dates so people will be well aware when the wedding is, and what they need to do to be comfortable the next day.

@linnylou_88: I think it’s person by person, but w-bands with sparkle are VERY common.

100% of the guest will be traveling in (no locals) and have to take a day off regardless (so either friday or monday depending on which day I choose to have the wedding)
I do get that the partying mood will probably not be there on a Sunday… ahh decisions decisions.
I also will save about 4000 just on the venue/catering/open bar.
I’m so torn because I don’t want people to NOT want to come because it’s on a Sunday, and while I can spend the extra 4000, I just feel so terrible that it could be saved for something else (like tuition or down payment on a house).

I have a diamond band! I do not agree with the assertion that the e-ring is the most important. Also, at least from being here on the Bee, I see TONS of sparkly bands all over the place. I don’t really know in real life; believe it or not, I don’t actually pay attention to others’ rings out here in the real world, lol.

It is lovely! I also really like how it stacks with your other bands.

I have diamonds on mine. I like to wear my band by itself becasue its more ikportant to me than the ering and always stays on my hand. I didn’t want a plain band. Never have.

I couldn’t decide so I have both. I usually wear them together plus the e-ring, but it’s fun to mix and match all three rings. Also, don’t let your friends get you down. Haters gonna hate.

@linnylou_88: I want a plain one so I never have to take it off for any reason. diamonds get things stuck in them, have to worry about losing them, etc.

I have a plain band and I love it. I don’t care what anyone else gets for their band though.

@linnylou_88: I have a channel set wedding band that matches my e ring as long as you like it, it shouldn’t matter others opinions

@happilyeveraftergirl: the things you mentioned are quite relevant however I’m not sure if the TV thing really has an impact, At least not for me but itd be interesting to see.
For myself, as cliche as it is, good ole trust and communication. Without either of those you’re in the tank. I also think respect is a big deal. Like you mentioned people also have to be willing to be flexible and compromise

My fiance and I agree that the wedding band is the more important of the rings. It is the promise to eachother for a lifetime. The engagement is only for a little while. It’s not the way everyone thinks but, it is done good for thought.
