    We have matching white gold bands. Matching bands was important to me. I think it looks nice and it’s kind of symbol of unity. Until I came on the bee, I didn’t realize how many couples opt for totally different bands

    totally  not important to me personally. Darling Husband wanted tungsten and the only female tungsten ones we could find were super wide. I wanted rose gold or organic looking to match my e-ring… that obviously woudln’t fit his style.

    Ours do not match and I am kind of glad, we can do our own thing and the only time anyone would really see them side my side is when we would be holding hands or in pictures or someing. Im not too worried about it

    Not really.  They are both white gold, but his has a hammered finish.

    Ours don’t match. I’m using a family heirloom band (it looks like a brassy gold, there are other metals mixed in). Fiance is using a new white gold ring.

    Well, actually mine is so much smaller, it fits inside his and is narrower.  He really wanted matching bands.  I wanted the band that matched my ering.  We compromised.  We got matching bands and then he got me the other band for our first anniversary.

    An exact match. It wasn’t an important detail to us, we just so happened to both want something simple. 🙂

    Mine is platinum and his is palladium so the color is almost exactly the same, but other than that they’re totally different.

    Ours match. Before we were married and looking for wedding bands, it didn’t matter to me if we found matching wedding bands. Hubby found our wedding bands and now I’m very happy that they match.

    They’re almost the same size (stupid enormous fingers)… other than that nope.  Doesn’t matter, they were both in our wedding and that’s all I care about 🙂

    Nope…not even close.  He wanted a ring that has yellow gold in it and I hated yellow gold.  DH ended up getting a platinum ring with yellow gold stripe in the middle, I ended up getting a white gold half eternity band.

    Our rings are COMPLETELY different. Mine is a white gold eternity band and delicate looking. His is tungsten and bulkier. It really wasn’t important to us if they matched, so we never attempted to find anything that did. If you’re really set on them matching, I say keep looking a little longer. If it was more an issue of them matching being what you thought you were supposed to do, then go with the styles y’all are drawn to individually. Good luck!

    Our rings are different! Mine is 14k white gold with 7 diamonds. His is 10k white gold with a brushed finish in the middle. 

    My mom always used to say that wedding bands should match, hers and my dad’s do. Fiance and I just have different tastes that’s all!

    Ive always felt its kinda weird when wedding banda dont look alike. I think the symbol of unity is more important than personal preferences. And a compromise of some sort can be reached. We plan on getting ours matching.
