I’m new here and I was wondering how many other bee’s out there had their wedding band picked out for them by their FI? A week after my FI popped the question he let it slip that he bought my wedding band at the same time he bought my ring. I begged him to see it so he took it out of the safe and showed it to me. It is exactly what I would have picked so I am happy about it. I thought this was pretty much the standard until I came on here and read that you guys picked your own.
Just want to see how many had their wedding band picked for them!
Going to include a picture of my set together because (let’s face it) I can’t shove my ring in people’s faces in real life 😉 that’s what weddingbee is for!
*Please feel free to post a pic of your wedding set!

I have to wear it, so I picked it! He also chose his own wedding band. Your ring is similar to mine. Love your band!

The wedding band usually comes later, so most couples, like us, go shopping for them together and decide together. But I know that where the band is made as part of a set with the engagement ring, it’s not unusual for him to pick them out at the same time. So it depends 🙂

I picked mine, FI was not aware there even was “a second ring” as he calls it. He had not planned or budgeted for a wedding ring at all. So I just went ahead and bought both our rings.

He picked my e-ring, I approved it, he bought my e-ring. Since he paid for my ring I’m paying for the bands. We are getting rings from Etsy sellers.

@wontonsoup: We kind of both did because we both picked my ring and they came together!

I more or less picked it out for her; we went back to the same jeweler where I had her ring made to get a band shaped to fit. Her band is on the top.

I picked out my own and he picked out his own too. 🙂

Since there is no option for “Other”…
We both chose it. We had it custom made to match my engagement band (Which we also had custom made). We designed it together.

Its my ring, I picked out the wedding band. But for a lot of them I’d get his opinion on them, if I wasn’t quite sure.

I picked out several that I liked and he gave input. I ended up getting 2 because he wanted me to have a dainty pave band and I wanted something with purple.

@wontonsoup: you should add an “other” or “we chose together” option!
My FI and I designed my ring together. His was definitely more his choice, but I still love it!

I picked out my E-Ring which already had 2 bands attached. So I guess I ultimately did pick out my wedding band since I won’t be getting another band.
