Our budget is small for our wedding, and that has to include rings…i already have my e-ring, but for wedding bands, is it weird to buy a less expensive one and then upgrade it? have any bees out there done this? or does anyone plan on doing this? I was thinking maybe just getting some inexpensive titanium bands, especially since I’ll be in nursing school soon

Sounds like a great idea to me!

I think upgrading the band is less typical than upgrading center stone for an ering but still totally fine. I know a few older woman who added and embellished their bands for various anniversaries over the years. Maybe tie it in with your first or 5th anni for significance? I personally would want to maintain some element of the original, the one that we were actually married with, maybe melting down the same metal, keep the same edsign style or reusing some of the same stones if you’re getting a diamond band. I’d want to keep at least part of the thing that was actually there on our wedding day!

I think its fine… its the thought not the hardware, ya know? My mom is on her third wedding ring and my dad is on his…. i dunno 5th maybe? (he keeps breaking them!). They’ve been married almost 35 years and going strong. 🙂

My wedding band was only $151 and is actually pretty substantial (2mm deep and 18K rather than 14K). And the place I got it from has some that are even less expensive.
I’m more OK with upgrading the e-ring than upgrading the wedding band, but if you have to do it, you have to do it. It’s just a piece of metal. You can do a little personal ceremony between the two of you if and when you switch, like kissing the other’s new band and putting it on the other, or saying your vows to the other again as you put the new one on.
