His & Hers Wedding Bands: To Match or Not to Match

When it comes to your wedding bands, you'll have to consider if you'd like to have a matching pair or your own individual styles.

The traditional choice

If you and your partner are looking to honor tradition, matching bands are for you. Other reasons to match include expressing that the two of you are now a unit and you share the same taste and style.

When not to match

There are no hard and fast rules that dictate you have to match your bands. Today, many couples choose not to in order to customize their rings to their personal style and preferences. For the bride, she may want a band covered in diamonds that complements her engagement ring, while the groom may want an alternative metal. Many modern guys are partial sleek metal bands. Shiny black is even becoming popular color for men's wedding bands

Even if your bands aren't identical, they can still share a similar theme. A couple could use the same metal, share a similar design element or even custom design rings that interlock like a puzzle when brought together.

No matter your choice, make sure it is true to you as a couple and you won't regret your wedding band choices.
