We have just started planning our wedding now I’ve got a full time teaching job. I’m thinking of going wedding ring shopping with him in the next week or so. My fiance just wants a plain gold band – no diamonds or patterns. My engagement ring is a platinum and diamond solitaire and I am torn between a plain platinum band or a palladium band with diamonds in for my wedding ring.
So bees, did you find it took you ages to find the right wedding ring or did you just know it was ‘the one’ straight away?
Pictures are welcome.

I got engaged in November and still have not purchased my wedding band yet! I initially thought I wanted this one:
But then saw this one and fell in love:
I’ve also considered this one:
But the middle one is my favorite so that’s probably the one I’m going to end up going with. 🙂

Ive was looking for about a month. I tried the one on I bought a couple times. I loved it when I first tried it on, but I am the type of person who has to try everything on to make a final decision. So I finally bought it, because if I didn’t I would go crazy shopping for one, I would probably go to the mall at least twice a week to try rings on! Lol, I’m nuts, what can I say.
I don’t have a picture yet cuz my band is getting resized all I have is a cell phone pic:(

I got engaged on new years (jan 1st) of 2011… I didn’t find a wedding band until February 2012!! It took me FOREVER to find one I liked.

I got engaged last February and just now got our bands about a month and a half ago. Here is mine! I have a .50 ideal princess cut and the band is .50 carat with 16 round brilliants and it is also a half eternity!
ETA: It was very hard for me to find a band because my diamond in my e-ring is a D VVS2. Most of the bands in the stores looked very yellow in comparision. We wanted to go to the same guy who made my ring but a band with the specs I wanted it would cost us about $1100. No way. We found this lovely at Zales in the clearance for $700! We got it for like $630 or something like that? It’s E VS1 (I believe can’t remember exactely but it’s close!)

Um, all together 2 1/2 years. But I still had one within a couple weeks (that I got married with), and another a few months later. Then my final and forever one(s) after nearly 2 1/2 years. I hope your search is much shorter!

It took me a fair few months to find mine as I was after a diamond band to thatch the diamonds on the sides of my ring. Thankfully I finally found it!!! No photo tho 🙁

It took me almost a year to find a wedding band I actually liked. Depending on the color of your diamond, it can get complicated as the average is an H or a J that I saw or at least told about. That is why I just went with colored diamonds.

We started looking seriously in mid-March, and I just decided for sure today on a plain gold band. It came down to the plain gold band and a milgrain contour band with diamonds. The milgrain band was beautiful, but the color of the gold was off just a little bit (yellower than my engagement ring) — plus it was MONDO expensive. The plain gold band just looks *right* with my ring in a way that the others I’ve tried don’t.

We picked out ours in 20 mins. We went to one store and saw 2 we liked and voila done.

I’ve always known I wanted a plain band. I didn’t know which width I wanted, so I orded 3 cheapie bands off of ebay to try them on. I was torn between 2, and set up a poll on weddingbee. Within minutes everyone’s responses told me the answer. I haven’t ordered my final band yet, but it’ll be a standard comfort fit 2mm palladium band, which a few places offer. I’ll probably go through eweddingbands.
