The only way you are being spoiled is if the person buying can’t afford it and you are insisting. Otherwise, I don’t get her point.

No, you’re not.  I think the wedding band is important too, it symbolizes the actual marriage past the initial commitment and I don’t think I could ever imagine getting married and not having a wedding band on my finger after the ceremony.

My daughter told me i was spoiled because I got a ring to wear while my Ering was off being sized….lol

You aren’t being spoiled. It is a symbol that is important to you.  You aren’t asking for anything elaborate so what is her point?

If things are tight, then perhaps getting a inexpensive ring now would be ok, and then later on during an anniversary getting the one you want.

There’s nothing wrong w/wanting a wedding band.  You do not need her approval.  Does she have a wedding band?

How can you do the “with this ring…” part without a wedding band?

Call my a cynic but sounds like someone (your step mum) is having a little bad attitude day…

Nope..you’re no tbeing spoiled. I don’t care if my e-ring was the size a fist I would still want a wedding band. To me, that’s what symbolizes the marriage. The e-ring is the promise, the wedding band is the fulfilment of that promise.

Nope. I’d venture to say the wedding band is symbollically more important than the engagement ring, especially after you’re married. Ignore her!

As far as I’m concerned, the wedding band is more important than the e-ring.  An engagement is a promise to get married, but the real event is the marriage.  We had plain bands, and no e-rings.

My Fiance and parents didn’t think i was going to wear a band either.He bought the e-ring without band. But i feel the same way you do and when i mentioned i would like to find one to match they were 100% for it. It’s between you and your Fiance to decide not your friends!

Oh good Lord. What’s up with that comment? Of course you are not spoiled by wanting a wedding band! How weird.

I never blogged about my rings, but I wanted a plain white 2mm white gold wedding band, and ordered mine from amazon.com for $60. It’s simple, beautiful and incredibly shiny… gets compliments all the time.
