Who pays for the wedding ring bands? My fiancé thinks I should fully pay for his since he paid for my engagement ring and it’s making me roll my eyes a little. I just think we should spilt it. Any help?
I've heard that you are supposed to buy his and vice versa. I've also heard that it doesn't matter. We didn't do a mine or his money kind of thing. Anything wedding related came out of our joint account. We combined finances anyway after marriage so we just had the general view of it's all our money.
We are buying each other’s. I think since it’s a symbol of your love to the other person, the person giving it should buy it.
We’re handling it the same as Mindy, it’s part of the wedding budget (which we are paying for ourselves). We’ve been combining our finances for a few years now, so it’s all our money anyways, but everyone does this differently. Are you also going to split the cost of your wedding band with him?
We joined our finances right after we got engaged. So we just went to the store a bought them together. He picked his I picked mine. We were both so picky we wouldn’t have been able to choose one for each other. But you can do what ever works for you. I agree with a PP that it should just be a part of the wedding budget
We both paid for our rings together. Similar to some of the previous comments, we considered it part of our wedding budget. We went shopping for our rings together, each picked out our own (while getting each other's opinions on them), and paid for them together. This method seems to work well for many people, but you guys should do what works best for you.
I picked out my own and bought it since he bought me a (more expensive) engagement ring, and he bought his but it was only like 30 bucks because he wants a silicone one (sensory issues) so...call us non-traditional lol we are trying to split costs pretty evenly for the wedding as a whole.
Traditionally, you each pay for the other person’s ring. It doesn’t have anything to do with the engagement ring, though, and a lot of traditions have gone by the wayside with finances. For instance, it was tradition that the groom paid for the honeymoon, but now most couples pay for it together.

Right? No one bats an eye at a guy spending hundreds, or more likely thousands, on an engagement ring, but it’s a big deal to spend a couple hundred on a wedding band for him? Seems odd. Would you also split the cost of your band?
Traditionally each person pays for the other’s ring. We share finances for the most part, so we bought our bands together.

Same here. FH showed me the ring he wants. Although, I think it’s really nice and certainly his taste, I kinda felt guilty that he didn’t want something that cost more. But, he’ll be happy!
