I don’t know what’s traditional, but we bought each other’s rings.  Granted ours were both relatively inexpensive (his was $60 and mine was $130).

We are paying for our rings together (we already have shared finances)

I bought his ring and he bought mine but they were both around $350 so it was a fair split.

I don’t think that the traditional ways that people split the wedding expenses really apply anymore.  It just depends on who wants to pay for this.  My Mother-In-Law paid for my husband’s band and my dad paid for mine.  My dad paid for all the expenses except for my dress and the rehearsal dinner which was paid for by my Mother-In-Law.  Do you have someone else who is paying for the wedding that could afford your wedding band?

I always thought it was traditional for the groom’s parents to pay for the rings.

BUT… my groom’s parents didn’t pay for anything – so we picked that one up on our own.

 I think we’ll talk about it and buy them together. I mean… I work for a non-profit. He’s a lawyer. I wish I could buy my own though! Mine will definitely cost a lot more too because I’m allergic to the gold mix-ins and need platinum (as we learned the hard way with my engagement ring)

My Fiance just assumed we would pay for each others’ and that is fine with me. After doing some looking… his will actually probably be more expensive than mine 🙂

We are getting them together, and from the budgeted wedding money.

I assume we’re going to pay for each others rings?

MY Fiance designed my e-ring and wedding band as a set so he bought them together. I paid for his wedding band.
