@Leighannd…I bought my FI’s wedding band and I think that is usually how it’s done. But a lot of couple just pooled resources and got all three rings. I don’t think there is a set in stone rule about who buys it. Whatever you guys feel comfortable with is the way to go.

I think traditionally the bride buys it. I did. Then again, its going to be your collective money soon! Decide what’s best for you. I don’t make much money but I loved buying my hubby’s ring.

We bought both our bands together out of our “wedding” money.

I guess it depends on whether the money is “your” and “his” or “ours”. If you have seperate money then I think you are supposed to buy his ring. I know for Fiance and I we have a joint savings for all wedding things and that’s where the money is coming  from.

My fiance purchased both our wedding bands. At the moment I’m a postgrad student with no income and he supports me financially, so there was no way I could afford to buy it.

The bride is supposed to buy the ring – that’s what we did, but we have had joint accounts since before we were engaged.

Our finances were already combined, so even though I purchased it, the money was “ours.”  I just made the effort to actually research rings and show him a couple different ones until he picked one he liked, then I bought it.

i don’t think there are any set rules, especially because people do their finances in so many different ways now a days, combined and seperate. we’re buying ours together out of our wedding money.

We both paid for our bands together… I made the downpayment and next time we go in to check the sizing, etc. He will put some money down. I mean, we are sharing a bank account soon so it didn’t matter to us!

We will be buying our bands together, also out of our “wedding fund.”

He bought mine and I bought his.  Depending on what type of metal your guy wants, Overstock and Etsy have some really affordable rings.  The one I bought was titanium for around $60.
