I’m not going to be wearing a wedding band for a few different reasons, but among them are the fact that my fiance and I each agreed that we would have one ring. When I give him his band on our wedding day during our ring ceremony, he’ll give me back my engagement ring. I have no idea how common this is, though. 

My gut reaction is that you don’t need anything, not even one ring in the first place. If one ring works for you and you’re happy with it, then I say go for it. 🙂

Do what you want! You’re engaged even if you don’t have an engagement ring, and you’re married even if you don’t have a wedding band. If you lost the ring it wouldn’t make you any less engaged/married so to me the same idea applies here.

It was important for me to have a wedding band. I have a few girlfriends that don’t have bands and they get asked all the time if they are engaged/when are they getting married. It drives me crazy! So yeah, it’s just a personal preference.

But I agree with a PP that said that you don’t need anything, but what are you comfortable with?

You can wear or not wear whatever you want! Personally, I wanted the wedding band cause I like the look of it and how it undoubtabley (if thats a word) says married.  But its all personal perference.

I get asked quite often if my e-ring is an engagement ring or a wedding band, or whether I’m married or engaged. I don’t mind it, but I agree with @pinkshoes: that having both definitely says married.

With that being said, my e-ring has two small side diamonds (not the band, but the actual side) and I’m not sure what kind of wedding band it would fit with without rubbing against those diamonds.

@Miss Godiva & @Mrs.Mittens: I have the opposite problem, actually…even though we’re not married yet, people see my ring and assume we are because it’s actually a set that my Fiance got soldered together right off the bat. Makes me feel a bit more confident about only wearing one ring, though 🙂

I’m not getting a band. I love my e-ring but Fiance doesn’t like jewelery and if he gets a band he’ll never wear it, so there’s no point of him getting a band and I don’t really want to get a band if he doesn’t have one, I already have my e-ring. Besides it’ll be really hard to find a match for my e-ring.

I don’t think bands are that important (please don’t kill me), but where I come from no one notices wedding rings.

no, you don’t have to wear any jewelry you don’t want to.

Excellent, do what you prefer! Of course you will get questioned if anything is outside the <norm> but that’s fine. Just spread the word that people can do things differently 😉
