Heya! Welcome to the Bee!
The Fiance and I won’t have matching bands either. I favour yellow gold (like you) and he wants a titanium band. I always envision that the wedding bands with my husband would match as well but in the grand scheme of things, it’s not really a big deal to me anymore – as long as we’re together, I’m happy lol

We’re not married yet and haven’t bought our wedding rings but i know I’ll definitely have yellow gold (I have a YG engagement ring) but I doubt Fiance will want yellow gold and I don’t think it would suit him. I think he would prefer a brushed (matte) silver colour band. So it’s likely that we will end up with mis-matched wedding rings.
I also feel slightly odd about it like there’s no unity as you say, but it seems silly to get rings we aren’t personally happy with or don’t suit just to match.

@RoseEcho211: Our rings are half white and half rose. So they match, and we both have the gold color we like best.

Our bands don’t match at all. DH picked one he liked, and I picked one I liked. I didn’t see the need for one of us to get something we didn’t like for the sake of matching!

Both the same colour. Yellow Gold no stones. Completely different design. Mine is carved with swirls, my husbands is named the beer barrell design!

We were both going to have white gold, but DH didn’t like how heavy the ring felt on his finger; he found it uncomfortable. He ended up choosing the same style in titanium and I have white gold with channel set diamonds.

I know the feeling… I wanted a traditional matching set, and so did DH, but he would only wear a very traditional yellow gold band. I don’t like yellow gold, and it would have clashed with my platinum e-ring anyway, so I went for white gold. In the end, they really didn’t match at all!
But hey… sometimes you just have to make compromises.

I have two rings: one yellow gold and one platinum. Dh’s is white gold with yellow gold miligrain. All are hand engraved and diamond/stone free. So while they don’t match exactly, it is cohesive.
My yellow gold ring belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother. My aunt has my grandfather/great-grandfather’s. I know that if I asked for it she would have given it to me. But DH had zero interest in a solid yellow gold ring.

My original wedding band is platinum with diamonds to match my e-ring. I also have a plain platinum band as well as a tungsten band that matches my DH’s work band. His real w-band is white gold no stones. So, we have the same color but different styles.

@Jabberwocky: Those are cool as can be!!!
We have matching bands just different mm widths in white gold. I’m still getting an eternity band at some point but we both wanted matching bands 🙂
