I have never heard of the bride and groom matching their wedding bands. Get what you want.

I don’t think they have to match, but y’all should both get something you like because you’re going to be wearing it everday!

Yes.  I know of more people that don’t have matching bands than do.

Matching bands aren’t a big deal- I think most people I know have mismatched bands.

I wouldn’t worry about having matching bands. You should get what you like and what you think will good with your engagement ring!

Please get what you love!! It’s on your hand everyday so you must love it. I don’t give importance to matching bands because they are a symbol of commitment. They can be anything imo. And most of the time you’re not right beside your husband, showing how your bands match. You are working, out on your own, etc and you are sporting a wedding band, period. 

My husband has a super wide titanium band while I have a delicate diamond contour band in platinum…we have different hands and tastes! Plus, women have an engagement ring to match a band to more or less.

That being said, some couples do like matching bands and that’s great!! As long as both agree…;)

Kate and William both have yellow gold bands and her ering, as we know, is not yellow gold.  😉

I smell a compromise- do the same style, only yours in white gold and his in yellow gold. Or maybe a two-toned band?

We purchased a matching set of tungsten bands.  But, I also purchaed white gold bands to match my e-ring.  I wear the white gold bands daily w my ering and wear the tungsten band when I don’t want to wear my ering.  So maybe having 2 different bands would work?

@Loubride:  Matching bands are pretty normal in most West European countries!

I would NOT want a band that is a different color than my ring. That’s JMO, but I don’t like the way clashing metals look in most circumstances, so I wouldn’t want to wear it every day for the rest of my life. 

I think you and FH should both get rings that you really like. After all, you’re both going to wear it every day until you die. No one is going think you’re not married because your rings don’t match!! hahaha.
