I think it’s entirely personal decision. Just like there is nothing wrong with plain band on engagement ring, there is nothing wrong with plain wedding band. I personally want pave diamonds on engagement ring and eternity band, but I don’t work with hands much ( I work at investment bank, so I sit behind the computer all day) but I might get a plain wedding band down the line for when we travel, ski and the such. I would hate to see anything bad happen to my rings.
Also, my Mom and Grandmother both had plain bands. I think the whole diamond bands thing is more recent craze and too much disposable income in the US, lol.

Mine will have diamonds in it – it’s also my engagement ring though and I just decided to use it as the wedding band as well. It’s non-traditional and completely indescribable (but sadly not online or I’d show you a picture) and it’s pretty unlikely I’d get a band to match it, so I’m keeping it on my ring finger even after the wedding, guess I’ll just take it off for 10 minutes before the ceremony!

I want to thank all the ladies who originally created this thread. I am currently shopping for bands and am getting the same comments when I tell them I don’t want something covered in diamonds. It’s good to hear that there are other ladies out there who feel the way I do!
I want something plain, but with a little bit of detail. My e-ring is ridged on the sides and I would love to echo it, but it seems its either nothing on it or covered in stones when it comes to these stores. If anyone has any recommendations, let me know!

I echo the call of "get the ring that’s right for you," but I add to it, think about the future. What will you want to be wearing in 10 years, 20 years? Will you want to still wear your engagement ring or just the band?

crazy madness! i’m with miss penguin – do what YOU want and what works for YOU. anything else is irrelevant.
of course, i’m not getting a band at all, so i may be biased. my e-ring has an organic double-band shape so no band, plain or otherwise, would sit well next to it. the simple elegance is perfect for me – no need to gussy it up because others expect it. if they want flashy rings, they should go back to penguin’s post. to each his or her own!
