Here’s Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Know About Wedding Bands

When it comes to engagements and weddings, the two things that tend to steal the spotlight are the ring and the wedding dress - but that doesn’t mean that all other aspects of your wedding aren’t just as important. 

In fact, the wedding bands are even more important than the engagement ring and the dress. After all, the wedding bands symbolize the vows you and your loved one will exchange during the ceremony, making them a representation of the eternal bond between you. 

Given their great significance and the fact that you’ll be wearing them for years to come, your wedding bands should be nothing short of perfection. So, to help you find the perfect rings for you and your loved one, our experts have put together this handy guide answering all your questions about these meaningful rings. Dive in!

When should you buy your wedding bands?

While there are no set rules, our expert advice is to start looking for wedding bands early on in the engagement. How early, though, is completely up to you. However, we recommend you start looking for rings as soon as you pick the wedding date. 

That way, you and your partner will have more than enough time to find the perfect wedding bands. And in case you need to get them resized, engraved, or even
custom-made, there’s more than enough time to do that.

Who is supposed to pay for the wedding bands?

Traditionally, the groom was responsible for buying both the engagement ring and the wedding bands. Nowadays, though, couples have been opting for picking out their bands together, and getting a sweet and memorable experience out of it.

The truth is that whether you want to pick your own wedding ring or you’d rather ask your fiancé to surprise you with a wedding band that he picked for you, the choice is entirely yours. So, don’t be afraid to just go with what feels right for you as a couple.
How to find a wedding band that matches your engagement ring
The best way for you to figure out which wedding ring to get is to use your engagement ring as a guide and look for wedding bands that compliment your ring - which is luckily super easy to do. 

Just look for similarities in both rings or details they might have in common, such as the same precious metal, diamond cut, gemstones, or just their overall aesthetic. That way, you’ll easily find the perfect wedding band to match your engagement ring.

While in the past most wedding rings were made of gold, these days you have a wide variety of metals to choose from. Besides white, yellow, and rose gold, wedding bands are also made in platinum, tungsten, palladium, carbon fiber, and titanium - so your options are virtually endless!

Do wedding bands have to match?

This is completely up to you and your partner. While matching wedding bands are as popular as ever, mismatched bands have been growing in popularity lately - and it’s easy to see why. After all, it can be hard for a couple to agree on one band design they both love. The bottom line is that there are no rules which state your wedding bands have to match, so just go with the option you feel is right for both of you.
