- Wedding: January 2011
I need some advice bees. My fiance and I have been researching wedding bands and he has chosen the one he wants. He’s very traditional and says he just wants a 4mm 14k white gold band. He says that he’s grown up seeing his father wear one exactly like that and his parents have been married almost 30 years. He is a very simple guy and that’s all he wants.
But when it comes to my band, I’m having a hard time finding one that I like within our price range. My engagement ring is a 1 carat princess cut with round side stones. The bands I’ve been looking at are 1/2 carat channel band in 14k white gold. The only thing is, they cost a little more than I would like for him to spend on my wedding band, the ones I have seen anyways. He has no problem purchasing it, but I feel bad due to the fact he has already spent so much on my engagement ring, and the band he wants is very inexpensive in comparison to mine. I’ve been looking into alternative styles, I’m completely alright with a solid white gold band myself, but I’m afraid it might look silly with my engagement ring.
Do you bees have any suggestions for me? If anyone is willing to post pics of their sets, it’d be appreciated! Thanks bees!
