    I’m buying both of ours! He spent enough on my ering and I’m the one with all the money (for right now) since we’re both students. I’m still trying to find a band I like but my front runner is from Tiffany so it won’t be cheap. But he’s said hell buy me another eternity ring later when he is making more money. I won’t complain.

    We paid for my ring and his from our wedding budget. We are paying for the wedding ourselves, so it is all our own savings. He paid for my engagement ring.

    He bought both our bands and my e-ring – he said it was something he wanted to do so it wasn’t really up for discussion. We didn’t combine finances prior to the wedding either.

    I bought mine and he bought his. That way we both got what we wanted.

    My fiance had been assuming that he “had” to buy my wedding band but I always figured it would just come out of the overall wedding budget that we are both working to save for. When I told him that’s what I was thinking he was totally fine with it. I understand that symbolically it’s nice to buy eachother’s bands but neither of us really have enough spare spending money after how much we set aside for the wedding to do that anyway. Just makes more sense for us for it to be a joint thing.

    We have a joint account but he’s the one who physically handed over his card at the store. Despite sharing finances he doesn’t like me paying for things, he thinks that is gentlemanly to pay for a woman. So when we’re out together, he usually pays..

    Technically, I bought his and he bought mine. However, mine was significantly more expensive than his, so the amount we had budgeted for bands all went toward mine and he covered what was leftover. I paid for his out of pocket.

    We picked it out together, but he paid for it.

    we went to the store together for him to show me what he picked and try it on. he bought it himself. (it was only $300). However I think I’m going to buy a really thin plain band to wear everyday and i’ll pay for it myself (it’s $32)  

    I plan on paying for his, as soon as he decides what one he wants. His current favorite is only about $60 though.

    We bought each others, purely for sentimentality.

    SoonToBMrs.C:  We bought it together out of our joint account and he bought his band separately before we combined our accounts.  Honestly, this is the start of a lifetime together, I don’t understand why you can’t buy it together instead of separately.  It sounds like he already bought the ering separately so buying each other’s bands out of the joint account isn’t a bad thing at all.  My husband mentioned that he wouldn’t mind buying an additional band for our one year anniversary and that will be coming out of our joint account.

    We are already in the process of combining our money. We have the bands as part of the wedding budget, but as far as our relationship goes, whats mine is his and whats his is mine. I will prob pick mine out and buy it without him and drag him to the jewelry store to pick one out for him. 

    This might be easier for us because we happen to make almost exactly the same amount and are living comfortably.

    I purchased it from our joint account about a year after we were married. Before then I was wearing my grandmother’s wedding band. I moved hers to my right hand and bought mine.

    What better way to start your lives together than by sharing the costs for both rings?

    He bought my wedding band. It was an entire set so we didn’t have to worry about looking for a band. I don’t think it matters who buys it. If he paid for his i wouldn’t care it symbolizes the same thing no matter who pays for it.
