We went shopping together, but he definitely picked out his rinG himself.  The ones I suggested he didn’t like lol so I’m glad he was able to pick his own and get something he likes rather than me picking it and him pretending to like it.  I hate to admit that he has the better taste between the two of us lol.

My Fiance had his ring custom made to his preference. I got what I wanted and didn’t see any reason why he shouldn’t get the same. 🙂

Man, if you saw my DH’s ring, you’d know I sure as hell didn’t pick it out!

We looked together at first but then a local jewelry store had a wedding band EXPO when he was out of town. I went and they had a representative from a company I never saw before and I loved their bands, so I took pictures of all my favorites. I showed them to him when he came home and he loved the same one I picked as my first choice for him.

Hubby picked his. It is in no way, shape or form anything I would have chosen.

My Darling Husband hates shopping period. He actually didn’t want a wedding ring, but of course that was NOT an option. So I’d show him photos of rings online, go to stores, aka did the leg work. We ended up going the custom route in order to get a ring that we both could be happy with.

OP are you getting to pick out your wedding band? If he picks both your wedding band and engagment ring, then it’s only fair for you to pick his wedding band.

Darling Husband and I both picked out our own rings as I thought that was the fairer thing to do.

My Darling Husband and I had this discussion years ago when we were looking for wedding bands.

I did not pick out my e-ring.  He wanted it to be such a surprise that he never asked what style, shape I wanted, etc.  He thought that’s what he was supposed to do. 

When we went looking at wedding bands for him I said I should pick it out because he picked out my ring.  I really did not want to pick it out, I just wanted to see what he would say.  That’s when it finally dawned on him about the whole e-ring thing.  He wants to pick out something that he wears everyday so why shouldn’t the woman?

My personal opinion is women should definitely have a say in their e-rings and wedding bands…and men should too.  I thought it was really cute to see him look at rings.

I also do not know of any guy whose wife picked out their ring without a say.

My Fiance and I went wedding ring shopping for him shortly after getting engaged.  He picked out his ring after trying several different ones on to see what we liked best on his hand.

I chose several rings and he picked one out of that.  He doesn’t care for jewelry; and, it is dangerous to wear jewelry at work since he is an engineer.  Also, he decided he wanted to tattoo a ring on his finger.  So, the ring will be for the church ceremony and he will wear it when he isn’t working.

And, my ering was a surprise.  He had help from my sister to pick one out.  I had no clue.

I helped him look and figure out what he would like, but in the end, he picked it out.  I approve of his choice.  He would have been okay without one, and he barely wears his anyway.

Darling Husband got my e-ring and band as a set, and picked it all out himself without any input from me.  It’s perfect.  🙂
