We are in a tight financial spot right now too, so I opted for a plain white gold band.  I am not 100% crazy about how it looks, so I think I will probably not wear it all the time.  It was only like $100 on eBay (from a brick and mortar store).

Hopefully for an anniversary, I will get a pave band, but for now, the plain band will do and is actually growing on me.

For the record, I actually think the matching plain band would look really nice with your ring!  It would make the center stone stand out.

Oh and as for the ceremony, you can just use your e-ring.  A friend of mine did this and it was fine.  She just said she hadn’t found one she liked yet and no one made much of it.

You dont need anything you dont want!  Some people do just wear  their e-ring for a wedding band. Personally, I like having a wedding bands that are undeniably a wedding band.  At first I thought I wanted two bands for symmetry, but then it didnt look like an e-ring with w-band anymore, just a giant wide e-ring, so I opted for the one.  I think your ring top down view would look great with a half eternity band, but if you want to add the band later, I dont see why anyone else should give you trouble for it..  Honestly though, if I just saw your e-ring alone, I would assume you were engaged and not married yet, but then do you care what random people who dont know you knew or assumed about your marital status.

You don’t absolutely need a wedding band, but if you feel bad about not having one, I think a very thin low profile plain band would look lovely & not break the bank (or cover up your side diamonds). Or you could always get one for an anniversary down the road. As for the ceremony, I know plenty of people who never got a band & just exchanged with the ering.
