We used our wedding fund to pay for the rings as well. I think times have changed sooo much. I’m having issues with my grandma understanding that myself.

Nope. He purchased my e-ring, his ring, and my wedding band.

We also just purchased my wedding band today! (Finally!)

Our wedding is sooooo unconventional in regards to the way things were paid. I bought BOTH his band and mind on an 0% interest 12 month card and have beeb making the payments from our wedding fund account. When Fiance gets his tax return right before fhe wedding, he pkans to pay the remainder of mine off, and I should have his paid off before then. Should. I say his money is my money and visa versa already at this point anyway so who cares who pays what as long as it gets paid right;)

I think that’s an old tradition from when husbands and wives weren’t considered a couple until they were married and families paid for everything. Nowadays, a lot of engaged couples make their own money and manage it together. For me and Fiance, there’s no “my money” or “his money,” it’s all ours.

When we were talking about getting engaged I told Fiance that if he spent a little more on the engagement ring I would cover my wedding band as well as his ring. We have a wedding fund which we both contribute to but I would say the large majority of it is my money contribution like 85%. With that being said, it is coming out of our wedding fund but Fiance still considers me the one who is purchasing the rings.

Yeah, like most others, Darling Husband bought my e-ring, and we bought our bands out of wedding fund money.  Honestly, he’s so damn picky I never would’ve bought a band for him wihtout his input.  Add to that that like a lot of couples, we’d already been living together and sharing bills for a couple years, it really didn’t matter whose wallet the money came out of so much.

We do the whole “our money” thing, but Fiance insisted paying for my wedding band himself, rather than out of our wedding fund. I paid for his band.

I paid for his wedding band and he paid for mine. It just felt right to me considering he has to buy my e-ring and my w-ring.

We actually paid for our own wedding bands.  Mine was more expensive than his and since he paid for the e-ring it seemed fair.

By the time we got H’s ring, we were already living together with merged money, so we both paid for it, but I guess I whipped out the credit card at the store to pay for his ring (all comes from the same pot).

Fiance paid for my wedding band, and then he paid for his. We decided to do a trade off… since he’s supposed to pay for my bouquet and something else I can’t remember because I’m sleep deprived. Otherwise I would have paid for it.

I’m paying for his mangagement and wedding rings, both pretty costly… but he’s worth it.

We see both of what we earn as “ours” btw, but these are coming out of my earnings specifically… vice versa with my rings.

FH bought the engagement ring and I paid for both our wedding rings. We do not have a wedding fund. I am paying for the wedding and he is paying for the honeymoon.
