    I think its totally up to you! You’ll get so many different opinions on wedding bands (trust me I eventually stopped asking) and you’ll drive yourself crazy if you try to match all the “rules” people will come up with.

    Personally, I think its more important that the styles of both rings compliment eachother, especially if the bands are different widths. I don’t see any reason why the width’s should be the same.

    Do you have pics of your E ring?

    Whatever makes you smile every day, that’s the one to go with πŸ™‚ I really like the one you picked out. (Can we see pics of your e-ring? WB LOVES e-ring pics!)

    My band is being made to be the same width and style (just plain white gold but with some flat-filing on the visible part) because I’m a little OCD when it comes to symmetry. Haha.

    You’ll know if it’s the right ring for you when you try it on with your e-ring.

    One thing I sometimes suggested to my customers when they were concerned about the width of the rings being different was to purchase two wedding bands… This way they could wear one on each side of their e-ring to balance it. To some brides, that was very important and to others it wasn’t. 

    Personally, I don’t think it matters. It’s really just a matter of personal taste. If you love it when you try it on with your e-ring, then it’s the perfect width for you. And that’s what’s most important.

    I actually really like a thin wedding ring with a thicker engagement ring πŸ™‚

    I voted “other” because I LOVE the look of a really delicate wedding band with a more substantial engagement ring. Such a beautiful look!

    Ohh you’re the one with that amazing aqua! Omg, that band is going to be so incredibly perfect for it. I have no doubts!! I think a slim wedding band to accent a thicker e-ring shank is a lovely look. Can’t wait to see yours together.

    My engagement ring and my future wedding band are both 2mm. The wedding band still looks smaller than the engagement ring, though, because the three diamonds are wider than the engagement ring band but I like the look of the narrow wedding band.

    This picture shows the blue wax model for the wedding band with my engagement ring. The finished wedding band will be platinum.

    My ering will be 2.5 mm, and I’m getting 2 bands, both 1.8 mm, for stacking on top and bottom of the ering.  I love stacked rings though πŸ˜›  Based upon the pictures, I think yours will go very well together!

    I don’t think it matters! Mine is as *close* as I could get to the thickness of one of my split shank bands, but it’s not perfect.

    P.s. where did you get that band? I might ask for it for our 1st anniversary πŸ™‚
