    We are choosing bands that we both really like.  I don’t think it matters if they match as long as we both like them and will wear them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think they did this back in the day….but people don’t do this anymore. Unless you buy all 3 together as a set. Modern brides don’t try to match In My Humble Opinion

    We just chose what we liked – they have nothing to do with each other. I think that is going against "tradition", though – my mother couldn’t believe that we didn’t have matching rings. "How will people know you go together!?"

    We’re not going to match. I like it that way! He wants a Tungsten ring and I want/need a curved one to go with my E-Ring. FI’s parents have similar plain yellow gold bands and while that works for them, that’s just not us! By The Way when I say he wants tungsten I mean he REALLY wants tungsten! haha Nice Tungsten rings are hard to find!!!

    They look nothing alike.

    I would have considered each getting a plain band, but we ended up getting a ring that is a set with my e-ring. For his, it’s brushed tungsten. Very manly and handsome.

    We really wanted matching rings at first, but we soon realized our idea of what we wanted for a wedding band weren’t the same :p He didn’t want ANY diamonds at all, and I ended up choosing an eternity band :p I could have done without the diamonds if we went for some engraving or something instead, but he didn’t like that either. I’d even have settled for some miligrain around the tops, but he hated the miligrain lol He ended up with a beveled edge band, definitely not something I’d want for myself. In the end, we’re both happy with our rings and we can’t WAIT to wear them. It would have been nice if we could have found weddings bands that we both liked the matched, but I’m definitely happy with our decision regardless!

    Like mizuoheaven, I love the idea of matching rings, and have just always kind of assumed we’d get matching rings.  I also have never liked the idea of having a fancy wedding ring–just a plain band for me.  

    We’re planning on buying similar milgrain bands.  His is a little wider than mine will be, and they’ll be different metals (my e-ring is platinum, and we can’t afford two platinum bands) but other than that, they’ll be the same.

    I have tried bands with stones… and it just isn’t working. I am waiting for a band to come in that is very similiar to my Fiance, and I am sooo excited to see how it looks with my e-ring. I think the simplicity of having a similar band is nice (and i think it will look GREAT with my beautiful e-ring!

    My Fiance wants something that looks more like the Tiffany Atlas band (with roman numerals engraved into it) whereas I’m going for a plain, platinum band.

    We’re getting matching white gold bands with some delicate celtic knot embellishments. We initially had rather different ideas about our ideal ring, but it was a high priority to both of us to wear matching bands so we’ve found something we can agree upon. His is a wider width than mine, but they’re otherwise identical.

    @Mizuno – I saw your e-ring in another post – it is gorgeous!  I understand your wanting to get matching bands – I always thought we would too. actually, DH’s ring was SO affordable, that I am thinking about getting the matching womens’ band for myself just because I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Darling Husband and I thought about getting matching bands, but opted not to.  At first he was going to get a white gold band with one princess cut diamond set into it.  But then he decided "he just wasn’t a diamond guy" and wanted something really practical and "manly" (his words, not mine)!  So we got him a tungsten carbide band.  He loves his and I love mine – we are both happy!  

    Here they are, all happy and nestled together.  For some reason this picture always makes me happy ๐Ÿ™‚

    we wanted a matching pair and thankfully we have similar tastes (i’m a no-bling girl), so we got a nice sleek pair, exact, different width/sizes ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, we actually did end up with matching rings…

    My hands are so much smaller than his that they actually nest — it’s pretty cute. But yeah, it’s too big to wear with my engagement ring, so I wear that on my right hand or not at all if I am feeling casual. My wedding ring is more important to me than the engagement ring anyway.
