My fiance ordered my wedding band last week! I wanted something I could wear with or without my engagement ring and I was looking for a unique and vintage-y take on the classic eternity band. We ended up choosing Tacori HT2378B:
The sample was a few sizes too big. I tried to hold it in place, but when it actually fits the gap shouldn’t be that big.
I can’t wait to wear it! Has anyone else ordered wedding bands yet? I’d love to see what you picked!

Is this for december brides only? My guy and I have ours already I got mine as an heirloom and he picked his out. Only problem is his is silver so the tarnishing is kind of a pain, other than that he loves it. He wanted silver because he likes the look of it. (I forgot this pic has my e-ring hiding in the back lol.

I think my fiance has finally decided on his band as well! We’ll be ordering a tree bark textured band made of a palladium/silver alloy from this etsy seller: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BethCyrWeddings. It will look very similar to the ring below, but in a 9mm width.
The style is pretty different from my choice, but I still think they’ll look good together.
@Mrs Christopher: I love that you have an heirloom band- I think that adds so much more meaning. We have very similar engagement rings. I almost went with a narrow, white gold band as well. I think they look so clean and classic and allow the focus to stay on the beautiful center stone of your engagement ring… but once I tried on that Tacori I was in love and there was no going back, haha.
C’mon December brides- we can’t be the only ones that have chosen our bands!

Fiance and I both have our bands. He went with a simple tungsten band and I went with this band:

I would love to get a 3/4 eternity U-shaped shared prong setting, between 2-3 mm wide. U-shaped prongs are hard to find, and the jeweller that we got my Engagement Ring from doesn’t make those (he says the diamonds fall out easily). I think we’re going to go with a 2.3mm shared prong ring, about 2/3 carat. Anyway, I slashed my dress budget in half to get a nice band, so it better be good! 😛

My band is in! I may or may not have asked my Fiance on a daily basis if he had heard from the jewelry store yet. He totally surprised me by maintaining that they hadn’t called and then coming home one day and slipping it on my finger! I can’t wait to wear it all of the time! It fits perfectly 🙂

Since FH picked out my e-ring and surprised me with it, I picked out his wedding band and will surprise him with it on our wedding day. Just like we did with my e-ring, we went try on rings and he gave me an idea of what he wanted, and then I made the final decision. I can’t wait for him to see it, and then wear it all the time!
I originally wasn’t going to get a wedding band. No one in my family has one, so I didn’t even realize it was something people did until very recently. And then when I started to think I wanted one, I realized that one of the things I love so much about my e-ring is the thin band, and that if I had a wedding band that looked similar to my e-ring, it would just make it look like I had a thicker band. But i couldn’t get it out of my head. I finally decided to get a sterling silver ring from etsy, it wasn’t that expensive and I can decide if I like it or not! But the more I think about it and look at it the more I looooove it and am so glad I decided to get one!! I like that the twisted band kind of represents us being joined together, and that it sort of resembles the two diaganal lines that go around FH’s ring. It hasn’t come in and I don’t think FH is going to let me see it until the wedding day, but I’m so pumped to have it on my finger!
