It can be however you like, but we’re buying each other’s. (I buy his, he buys mine).

I think the bride is suppose to buy the ring but I don’t think it matters.

i had a friend who got married and his wife refused to let him even go with her and she got the wrong size. Well i guess there is a type of material that can’t be resized and he had to wear the his ring on his right hand.

You can do whatever you want. There are no rules I don’t think. I bought his. He bought mine. he went with me and chose it. But I paid for it and had it engraved.

I bought his ring, he bought mine. Just depends on the couple though!

futuremrsph70:  We bought all of our rings together. It worked for us, because we both had input into what each ring should be.

For example, for my wedding ring, Darling Husband and I went together to look … he picked out the one he liked the most … and I agreed that I liked it, too. So it was kind of a combination of he picked it and I picked it. Or he picked it and I approved of it? He actually purchased it though. It’s interesting, because my ring really was quite like he picked it on his own. It’s not something I would have chosen for myself, but it is what he thought a wedding band should look like and what he wanted to see on my finger. He likes a thicker ring, so that’s what I ended up with.

For his ring, same basic thing. We went to look … he told me what he wanted … I told him which I liked best … and then he either approved or not. I can’t remember, but I think it might have taken us longer to get his band than mine. He turned out to be pickier than either of us had expected — ha, ha! But I actually purchased his band. (This was before we had co-mingled our bank accounts.)

futuremrsph70:  I just assumed that it was just included in the overall wedding budget, and bought together.  When people tell me how much they spent on their wedding, they usually say “including wedding bands.”

futuremrsph70:  I guess that depends on how you’re dividing the costs and such. And how traditional you are.

My Fiance and I are buying our own rings. Partly because I’m going to want acustom made one and partly because he’s already paid for my engagement ring, so I don’t see why he shoukd have to pay for the more expensive wedding band of the two.

We’re paying for our wedding ourselves as is custom in my country, so we’re splitting all the joint costs but paying for our own things ourselves; so I’m paying for my dress, shoes, flowers, jewellery etc and he for his suit, shoes, jewellery etc. Felt most fair.

I bought both but we chose the phrase to have engraved on both rings, together.

We bought both together. My grandma was all sorts of concerned at first because traditionally, he should buy mine and I should buy his. We basically did that….because we used money from a joint account. But we were both there, we didn’t pick it out for each other.

futuremrsph70:  Our finances were already shared before we got engaged, so technically we both bought both, but we do view it as he bought mine (it came as a set with the ering) and I bought his along with an engagement watch for him.

We purchased ours together.  He made the final decision on his and ditto for me.  We ended up buying them the same day at the same jewellers so were purchased on our joint – wedding credit card.  We both are responsible for paying the bill every month so the money didn’t come from one of us but both, if that makes sense.
