I dont have a wedding band yet but I think wedding bands are beautiful on their own.

I thought I would but it hasn’t happened yet… only three months in!

I do. Quite often at the weekend I just wear the wedding ring.  At the moment I’m wearing a stand in as my fingers have swollen with pregnancy, but once my rings are back on I’ll likely only wear my engagement ring when going out.

I do. It’s the middle of summer here right now and my fingers swell up . Also I exercise a lot.

My engagement ring is a 160 year old family heirloom and I worry about wearing it too much.

I’m not married yet (less than 2 months!!) but I love how the wedding band I own looks on its own. I don’t think I would regularly wear it without my ering, but maybe on days when we’re doing something active or when we’re travelling. My fiancé spent a great deal of money on my engagement ring and I’m not sure how he’d feel if I didn’t wear it regularly.

I used to wear just a thick band 5mm whenever I needed my actual ring to be shipped off.

I typically only wear my wedding band. I love my engagement ring to death but it gets in the way too much and I feel like I need to be overly cautious when wearing it and can’t move my hand about like normal etc lol 

My wedding band is nice and substantial at 4mm, and I did want it that way because I figured I would be wearing it a lot by itself.

I’m two months postpartum and my wedding ring and e-ring still dont fit, so I’ve been wearing a 2mm rose gold band I bought on Amazon as a stand-in. I miss wearing my regular rings, but I really like the look of the solo band! I find a single band so minimalist and classy.

mbott19 :  I regularly only wear my band on the weekends. I’m cooking and cleaning and running errands and I usually forget to put my engagement ring on.

I often only wear my wedding band. My reason is because of how German people wear their rings. Our engagement ring (if we have one) is worn on the left and the wedding band is worn on the right. So if I want to change things up, I can’t just choose a different right-hand right – so I sometimes skip the e-ring, wear a different ring or no ring at all.

My husband and I wear yellow gold rings made from the wedding rings of our grandparents. His ring is slightly wider than mine.

I wore my wedding band alone for the first few months of our marriage while I was having a new engagement ring made and I loved how it looked. I love my engagement ring but there is something so minimalist and nice about the simple gold wedding band in its own.

I probably wear just a band about half the time. I have a trinity rolling ring that doesnt really ‘go’ with my e-ring, but I like wearing it, so I switch it up every now and then. I like the simplicity of a band.

I’m planning to get a yellow gold band for this purpose. I have a white gold set. When I only wear my white gold simple band I absolutely adore the look. But I feel like yellow gold has a different feel and I can change up according to the season aka the state of my tan haha.
