Groom to be here Tenured university professor, marriage in June. Looking at wedding bands. Have inherited many bling dress rings (cultural thing) (although i normally dont wear more than 1 at a time). My family thinks wedding ring should match bling (if only to show brides family are not cheap). My culture says bling = success. Brides culture says bling = feminine. Who to please?

CapeWind: Which one do you prefer? You have to wear the wedding band, nobody else.

You will have to wear the ring, not them, so I say please yourself! Get whatever you like. If you like bling then go for it! If you don’t like it get something plain. 🙂

My husband got plain but some of his friends got bling. Go with what you like and want… you have to wear it!

Yes I have to wear it, but my bride has to buy it. Her purchase should please both families, because they are still important to the life we want to build. Families have conflicting interests. Which side do we please.

CapeWind: my fiance wanted a blingy ring. He loves it. My family judges us for it, on cost and appearance. But, they judge anything, so we brushed it off.
Get what you want and own it!

CapeWind: don’t know how you feel about this, but my FI will wear a “daily” band that is plain white gold. But for special events and nights out, he has a ring from his grandfather with a nice round diamond and small sapphires, his bling ring. Its always an option so you get the best of both worlds.
Also, there is not one “girly” thing about my FI. He is a dirty fisherman and he’s no bitch-even with his bling 🙂
