Engagement/wedding Ring

Did anyone get a completely separate ring as their wedding ring? While I think my engagement ring is absolutely gorgeous and I really do love it, I just don’t feel like it’s my style. Fiancé even admitted he wasn’t sure I would like it and bought it because he loved it and felt overwhelmed shopping. 😂 He said it’s only my engagement ring and was already planning on having me design something for my wedding ring. I’m just curious how common this is. I’ve heard of people upgrading for anniversaries, but not for the wedding. Anyone else getting a separate wedding ring?

    I think most people get a wedding ring but wear it in addition to the engagement ring. But there’s no right or wrong, do whatever works best for you and makes you happiest.

    My husband proposed with a plain gold band, which is now my activity ring and we designed a wedding set together. It's a solitaire sapphire, and I love it. Do whatever makes you and FH happiest!

    I've seen it both ways! My FH bought my engagement ring with the wedding band. So they go together and I will keep them as my wedding ring. However, I have seen plenty of people get a new ring when they get married. A wedding I went to last weekend, she loved her e-ring but got a totally different ring and band when she got married because it was more her style. It's about what works best for you! You will look at it for many years to come so I'd say it's important that you like/love it!

    I totally got a separate ring. I don't wear mine together with the e ring. They clash. I don't wear my e ring at all and didn't want to anymore because it was just do cumbersome and I wanted something very sleek and minimal for everyday wear so I only wear my wedding ring which is very plain

    My FH purchased the ring I wanted; round aquamarine, with a double halo of diamonds and blue diamonds. Recently we have been talking about 'upgrading' this ring to a solitaire round diamond ring. He wants me to have it before our engagement photos in January. I told him I love my ring and there's no reason to change it. He wants me to have a more traditional ring.

    I am planning on getting a thin wedding band that has small diamonds that way it matches both. If I do get the other ring, I would wear that with my band and the actual engagement ring on special occasions on my right hand.

    Do what makes you happy.

    I went with my FH to buy the engagement ring--he was too nervous about getting something I wouldn't like it. But, I have a colleague who recently got engaged, and she just decided to be honest with her FH. She said that she didn't like the ring but she loved the stone. Together, they created a new style for the stone he had bought. Also, one of my best friends just told me that she loves her engagement ring but that it's silver and she plans to wear her grandmother's old wedding band that's gold so she plans to stop wearing the engagement ring after the wedding. Point is, I think you do whatever makes you happy.

    My wedding band and engagement ring were purchased separate although I do wear them together now that we are married. If you and your FH want to upgrade for the wedding, go for it. It is completely up to you and you definitely want to be proud of your rings.
