    We did it so I bought his and he bought mine since they were “gifts” to each other on the wedding day.

    I don’t think there is a rule of thumb or anything. Just depends on the couple! I know plenty of bees have posted that they bought them or they split the cost with their SO’s. Other’s SO’s bought them their selves. If you want to buy them I don’t see anything at all wrong with that! 🙂

    I think I’ll buy his and he’ll buy mine?

    I think it depends on the couple. Traditionally, I believe the bride buys the groom’s, and the groom buys the bride’s. But if that doesn’t work with how you are financing the wedding, it’s pretty much up to you.

    Our money was already “joint” before the wedding so we bought both our rings together!

    We bought our rings together as well, since we have sort of joined finances.  Also, mine was a lot more expensive then his, so it didn’t really seem fair to not split the total cost.

    Since at the time we bought our bands we were already deep into wedding planning and also trying to buy a house so our money was very transparent (we kept seperate accounts until we got married). We set a budget for wedding bands and just went shopping. We purchased them together, but I think I may have been the one to actually write the check.

    @FMM: This is how it happened for us too.

    Traditionally the bride buys the grooms and the groom buys the brides.  But there’s no option for that.

    I’m actually uncertain of etiquette on this, I believe you just buy each other the rings, which essentially makes it a joint purchase if you are to collaborate your finances once (or maybe you do already!) your married anyway.

    Etiquette/tradition says that each buys the other’s, I believe.
