He’s the one wearing it.  Also, YG is not my taste, but seems to be making a comeback.  Kind of a vintage throwback to our parents’ weddings.

I’d be happy with the fact that he wants to wear a band at all! I don’t think it matters much what color it is if he wants to wear it. Let him choose

Let him get what he wants.  Gold colors go in and out of style, yellow will eventually make a comeback.

Fiance hates that I have a gap between my e-ring and my wedding band. It drives him crazy.  But I love it, and I’m the one wearing it, so while I know he wouldn’t have picked it, he let me get what I loved.

When we first started looking for bands I encouraged Fiance to check out some styles I liked but he wasn’t interested at all. As soon as I got that vibe, I backed off and let him pick it. I told him my opinions for my ering, and I sure as heck picked my own wedding band so he deserves the same courtesy because as others have said, he’s the one wearing it.

I would just let him do what he wants with the decision.

@DeathByDesign: I totally agree…with the two-toned idea and also the part about him not wearing the ring to work in case of injury.

When my FH and I were first looking at rings I was thinking all white metal (w/e kind) but he expressed how much he likes yellow gold so we are both having two-toned rings…and honestly now when I look at my engagement ring and imagine the wedding band I have to agree with him!

@jmares:  My man is in construction too and when I asked him about what kind of wedding band he’d prefer, he said “I have to be able to run it over with my truck.” So he wants the indestructible stuff too. Based on his research I think he’s settled on tungsten, and he liked the brushed finish so that if there’s a scratch, it might not show as much.

My FH is the same way, he just wanted a traditional yellow gold band. I kind of wish we had gotten matching platinum plain band instead, but it’s the ring he always envisioned wearing.

Glad you’re letting him choose, but please try to not let the =/ attitude about it be obvious to him – how would you feel if you found a ring that you loved and your Fi made it clear that he thought it was tacky, outdated, etc. Your feelings would be hurt, and rightly so – don’t do that to him.

Right now, I’m wearing three gold bands on my ring finger.  One is dated from 1917, one from 1921 and one from 1972.  The inscriptions in all three are intact and wearing beautifully. And, they are different types of gold.  white/rose/yellow   I love them all.

I agree with you! I don’t like yellow gold either. I actually got my fiance to pick white gold and he loves it! He went with the engineer styled ring.

But yeah, it is his choice if he likes it.
