Nope!

I have yellow gold, and Darling Husband didn’t care for it on his skin tone.  He has cobalt, which is a white metal.  They don’t match at all.

And I love those nerdy bands, very fun!

ETA: I guess you can’t really tell what color my metal is in that picture, Doh!

 

he has this ring:

and this is mine:

Our wedding bands will be matching, they are plain bands by the request of my Fiance. But in addition to that and my e-ring that I am getting soon I am getting a sparkly eternity ring to stack it with. I do love the Tiffany’s “I love you” ring. That is so pretty!

Wedding bands definitely DON’T have to match. It is a tradition in some areas, but it is not necessary. I say get what you each love, even if they are completely different!

I don’t think they HAVE to match at all. Mine are white gold and his is tungsten. His looks grey…but I guess we do have a geometrical shape thing going….

I see no reason for the bands to match anymore than our clothes need to match.  LOL My band is white gold and his is yellow. 

Question to the OP:  Is than a ladybug on the first band ring?

No, our wedding bands do not match at all.  I thought it was important for each of us to choose what we really liked.  I’ll post a pic of mine and my hubby’s rings so you can see what I mean.  By The Way – I LOVE your ring.

I’d say it’s a matter of personal taste whether you match or not.  We’re getting matching narrow yellow gold bands, but it was what we were both attracted to rather than we set out to match.  When we got my engagement ring, we looked briefly at wedding bands and instantly agreed, just sort of looked at each other and said, “that’s us.”

I don’t really get why people get hung up on matching bands.  I have white gold and hubby has Tungstun.  My hubby hated the look of white gold on his hands, and he LOVED the tungstun…so that’s what he chose.  I didn’t have an issue with it at all, and no one has ever commented to us that our rings don’t match.

I’ve never heard of matching bands.  I picked what I like; he picked what he liked.  Why would you want to “push” him to wear something that he doesn’t love for the rest of his life?!

Nope! Not the same metal, not the same style. I’m a little sad that they don’t match, but Fiance wanted nothing to do with diamonds and I was all about the diamonds. I think it’s just a matter of personal taste all around.

ETA: I knew that was a mario mushroom as soon as I saw it 🙂 that’s adorable!

Ours are both white gold, but that sort of just happened by default (didn’t want to pay up, wanted to be able to resize, both like silver metals). They are different designs. I adore rose gold but can’t imagine getting my guy to wear a “pink” ring.
