- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
I’m buying myself and Mr. Mary Jane plain, cheap (sub $50) wedding bands to wear on our h-moon. I’m doing this ’cause I’m worried about us losing them on the beaches, and also because I’ve read that where we’re going, it’s not a good idea to wear nice-looking or expensive jewelry in public.
Would you do this? Or am I just nuts? Mr. Mary Jane (upon hearing my plan) was all “Do we even need to wear rings while we’re there?” (YEAH WE DO!)

I am not married yet but I am DEFINITELY planning on having pseudo rings when we travel. you can go to any department store and get a close replica of your own ring, or a plain band for pretty cheap!

I voted that we are going to wear our real bands for our honeymoon. There’s a safe in the hotel room so if we ever feel unsure about wearing them out we can lock them up.

I ditto llc2011….we will just lock our rings up in a safe on our honeymoon. Once I put on my new shiny ring, I won’t want to take it off 🙂

gaah, I have ring insurance ,but I just don’t want to chance losing my ring, or my diamond. Or, drawing unsavory attention to ourselves while out-and-about… I don’t have a huge rock but its a pretty noticable ring/setting.
Here’s something hilarious now. I was (out of curiousity for prices etc) looking at rings for Mr. Mary Jane also (on eBay), and I found THIS:
It’s hilarious because this is Mr. MJ’s custom-made ring:
It’s practically the same thing! ‘Cept one is $32 and one is… considerably more than $32. (And Mr. Mary Jane’s is gold… with diamonds, yaddayadda. But look at the similarities. Crazyness.

I have never understood this concept. I would just leave my ring at home. You aren’t any less married because you don’t wear a ring for a few days. There are lots of married people who never wear a ring for one reason or another. It just seems like one more naggy little detail to deal with and keep up with, and it’s not like there’s not enough of that with a wedding already! 😉

Because we went to Hawaii, we just wore our real bands. We weren’t likely to get mugged where we were, and the rings definitely wouldn’t have fallen off. My only nightmare was if the centerstone fell off, and thank God that didn’t happen.

We’re not going anywhere dangerous for our honeymoons, and our bands are TOTALLY plain, so we don’t have this problem. I wanted the plainest possible wedding band, it will be less than $100. I don’t wear the e-ring when I’m on trips though. I, too, worry about losing or damaging it!

I voted that we will be wearing our bands BUT ours are just plain silver rings (no jewels). In the end we might not even wear them at all. My parents have been married for 21yrs and I’ve never even seen their wedding rings! Mr. Ninja and I would prob be the same if he wasent in the millitary, (He wants to wear it so when he’s deployed he can have a reminder of me, sigh, how awesome is he?!).

I’d definitely would do it, but I’d get some silver plain ones that don’t cost much less than 50 since I would only be using them for a short time.

I view my engagement ring and our wedding bands as something to be worn every day. Yes, I would hate for something to happen to them, but there is insurance on them and they could be replaced. I feel naked without my engagement ring!

I think that it completely depends on what you are doing. We will be doing a lot of scuba diving. I will not be wearing my rings while I am diving but I will wear them at the other times.
I think that if you are going somewhere where safety is an issue then I would leave my rings at home.

We’ll wear our rings. I’ll probably do what my mom does…whenever she goes into a place where she doesn’t feel safe/comfortable having her big ring showing she turns her band around so the diamond is facing inward. It’s not obvious if you’re not looking for it.

@eeh2010: I do that all the time!! hehe. I live in a super bad neihborhood in the middle of a city, so when I’m walking around in front of our building I hide the jewel. 🙂 Can’t wait to move

Well, we’re going to a resort in the poconos mountains, in the middle of the winter – and our rings are not worth that much anyway…plus I doubt we’ll be out of the room much anyway. We’re looking forward to stacks of good books, a fireplace, movies, and other honeymoon-related activities. 🙂
I think we’re just too boring to be doing things that would cause us worry about our rings. 😛 Sounds like a practical idea, though, for those of you going more exotic places, with more expensive rings. I would want a ring, and would be concerned if it was a super-expensive one!
