Nope.

You can have whatever you want and he can have whatever he wants!

Haha, I hope not! I want a rose gold band… Not sure how pink would look in my Fiance.

My Fiance and I are getting totally different rings and I couldn’t be happier!

My wedding band matches my e-ring….FIs ring I picked b/c I think he would like it and he could wear it in the lab. The colors are the same (platinum & diamonds for me b/c of allergies….white gold & diamonds for him b/c I wanted him to have diamonds) 

EDIT: So no I don’t think your and your FIs rings have to match Laughing

My engagement ring and wedding band pretty well match with the comfort fit, 2mm wide band in white gold. Darling Husband wanted something close to mine, basically in a white gold color to match it. He ended up with a gorgeous brushed palladium ring that suits him and his personality. He found the platinum to be too heavy for his time at the computer as a web developer. The lighter palladium was much more comfortable for him.

You can do whatever suits you and your Fiance ๐Ÿ™‚

Ours didn’t match exactly, but we purposely got ones that were somewhat similar (I had a claddaugh engagement ring and a plain gold wedding band and my husband got a wedding band with claddaughs and irish knotwork on it)

Nope! I started out thinking they should, but quickly changed my mind- my band won’t “match” my ering, let alone match his band Laughing

They totally don’t have to match! Honey, it’s your marriage, you do what you want! That being said…I will have a yellow gold e-ring and w-ring, but he will have white gold. He’s getting the white gold because we’re having his late grandfather’s ring melted down into a new ring for him and it’s white gold. The sentiment is awesome and I’m so happy we can have a part of his heritage in his ring, but ugh, honestly, sometimes I do wish we would have matching yellow gold bands!!

I think some people choose matching because they like the idea.  We didn’t because we wanted different things.  Also, how often do we put our hands next to each other for people to check them out?  ๐Ÿ˜€  Pick what you’d prefer!

I don’t think it’s necessary for them to match, but I do like it more when they do. I used to be totally fine with having two completely different styles (he wants yellow gold, I was thinking probably more along the lines of white), but then a girlfriend of mine said “It’s going to look like y’all are having an affair!” and I decided that I could handle yellow gold if it’s what SO really wants (it actually looks better on my skin, but white just looks so much more bridal). I’m still on the fence, but my friend told SO about this and he definitely wants to match now and he always pictured yellow gold.

there are no rules! wedding bands can be whatever you want them to be. I’ve noticed that it’s really common for guys to get plain bands in a metal that is completely different from what his wife has, and the wife often wants something with stones on it.

I do have to say that I think it’s pretty cool if a couple decides to get custom rings made that are unique to their personality, and the rings have the same theme. my friends had rings made with a bird theme (it might sound weird but trust me, they’re really pretty). one ring is yellow gold and the other is white, and the girl’s ring has more stones and is more dainty. but you can definitely tell that the rings are a set.
