Just wondering what everyone’s thoughts are on this, it took me forever to find an engagement ring I liked, but now I can’t wear it, actually I wear it in a chain because we are not allowed rings on at work at all. I’ve thought about just buying the cheapest band possible, many even fake for the ceremony. I’ll admit that I am cheap and just feel it would be a waste of money. I will be getting a ring tattooed on my finger afterwards anyway. Is anyone really going to notice if it’s a cheap gold plated band that he puts on my finger?my fiancé likes the tattoo idea but cant get a tattoo because of his fear of needles so he’ll have a band.

No, it doesn’t matter if neither you or your fiancé don’t mind not having it.
You and your husband know you’re married, and if anyone else needs to know, you can just tell them or they can look at the tattoo.
ETA: I didn’t vote in the poll because whether a ring matters or not depends on the couple. I didn’t feel comfortable voting ‘No’.

If you don’t want a wedding ring, don’t have one. I don’t really see the point of buying a cheap ring just for the purpose of having a ring to exchamge at the ceremony. You can use your e-ring for that.

The thing about getting a fake ring for the ceremony is that that ring will rust the second time you wear it. You can get a cheap thin gold band just incase you do wear it more often than you thought you would?
But if you really dont care for rings and you dont want to wear one then thats totally ok too. Dont be pressured to, its ultimately you and your SOs choice
I only voted yes because a ring symbolizes your relationship status, but you dont have to if that isnt too important to you

No ring, cheap ring, flashy ring, onion ring. Whatever you and your Fiance want to do or not do in regards to rings is up to you. And as unconventional as it is, you don’t have to have a ring exchange during your ceremony either if you don’t want to. It’s up to you as a couple to decide what’s important.

It’s totally up to you, though I suggest if you get a cheap band… Go with stainless steel. I got one for $8 with shipping on Amazon just to see if I’d like it. It won’t rust. However… If you don’t want a ring, then don’t get one.

You don’t need a ring, and you will be getting the tatto. however if you feel you need a ring for the ceremony, how about borrowing your mom’s (or close family memebrs) wedding band for just the ceremony to symbolize marriage and just give it back to her after and then get your tattoo?
