Silicone Ring at Ceremony

Steph, on December 7, 2017 at 7:54 AM Posted in Etiquette and Advice

My FH wants to have a silicone ring from Qalo instead of a metal ring. So, when we are exchanging rings at the ceremony, I will have a metal ring and he will have a silicone ring. Would that look tacky?

    No one will be able to tell from the audience, so it's whatever you want. In my experience it's harder to get silicone rings on so you might have some awkward moments of trying to wiggle it on his hand.

    My husband has silicone ring, however I got him a metal one for the ceremony and for times he doesn't have to worry about it getting caught in anything! There's no way I could have slid a silicone ring on during the ceremony.

    My FH is in the military so I bought his ring from Qalo. I'm also getting him a metal ring so we're doing both. He'll wear the silicone regularly but still have his metal band. I don't think it matters if you do just the silicone. It represents your commitment and the Qalo band I got is beautiful.

    My husband and I both have silicone rings and bands in addition to traditional metal ones. Unless you size up to the point where the ring hangs, you have to Shimmy a silicone ring on so it might be a little awkward for a ceremony. My husband's silver band cost less than 60 bucks from Etsy, so you may looking into getting him a ring like that as well.

    I second @Kate's comment - you can get a tungsten ring on Amazon or Overstock for like $30-$50. I'd use that for the ceremony and pictures. He can wear it any time you dress up, too!

    My FH has to wear a silicone week because of his job but I asked him if we could also get a nicer one for nights out and special occassions to which he agreed. If that is something that is applicable for you guys maybe bring it up to FH and if he says yes use the real one for the wedding? After all, it is a special occasion

    I got my FH a 20 dollar tungsten ring from amazon that he will wear for the ceremony and then I'm going to get him a Qalo ring to wear regularly because of the work he does, it's more durable. I would have started out with a qalo but it would be really hard to put on his finger while everyone's looking at you lol
