Hi, lovelies! OK — picking out your wedding band is not that hard to do, even though it may feel that way when you get started. I remember thinking, how am I supposed to pick just one? That is probably the hardest part. Deciding on just one wedding band you’ll wear, ya know, EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! ;)
Holy smokes, here’s a gorgeous one: a wide womens wedding band with moissanite. All the heart eye emojis. By PenelliBelle.
But here’s the good news: half of the work has already been done, thanks to your engagement ring. Or thanks to your endless Pinterest boards. Somewhere, deep down, you know exactly what kind of wedding band is right for you… we just have to inspire it out of you a little!
When I shopped for my wedding ring, I’ll be totally honest: I was super boring. I went with a solid white gold band. The exciting part was my engraving on the inside, as Andrew and I have parts of a song engraved inside our rings so that when they’re put together it reads the entire lyric.
Cute, and that was totally his idea.
But I digress: this isn’t about my cool Led Zeppelin song lyic, this is about your ring. And what kind of band you’ll wear forever. So, let’s take a look at a few examples of rings so you know what you’re looking for.
We’ll share a few wide wedding bands for her with diamonds, a few wide bands without diamonds, some moissanite examples, petite / thin wedding bands, some wedding rings that fit into your engagement ring design, and even some silicone wedding bands for the active type.
But first — a few tips on how to pick your wedding ring.
Let’s get started!
How to Pick the Right Wedding Band
Here’s how to choose the wedding band that is right for you.
1. Look at your engagement ring.
Pick your wedding band based on what your engagement ring looks best with! Simple as that.
Imagine what kind of ring next to it would add to its beauty — not overpower it. And pick a wedding band that has the same metal tone and style as your engagement ring (i.e. gold paired with gold, art deco with art deco, etc.)
For instance, my engagement ring is a round solitaire diamond. Classic! Since I wanted that solitaire to steal the show, it is accented by zero diamonds next to it and my band — as I mentioned — is a solid white gold band, sans sparkle.
I love it just the way it is, and that’s my style.
Someone else might want diamonds alongside the solitaire, or diamonds inside the band itself, paired with a band of even more bling. And that’s great, too — if that’s YOUR style.
Another bride might choose to go with a simple engagement ring and amp up the sparkle with a wide wedding band with diamonds, moissanite, or similar and really rock those stones.
The bottom line here: envision what you’d like to wear with your engagement ring. Your engagement ring isn’t changing, so that’s your one constant that can help you pick out the right wedding ring.
2. What is your budget?
Another reason why I chose a white gold band? I wanted something simple and affordable. I didn’t want to spend too much on my wedding band, so we didn’t. Keep your budget in mind and, if the sky is the limit and you want diamonds, go for it!
3. Should you buy them / fuse them together?
Some brides choose a wedding ring set: an engagement ring and wedding band that are designed to fit together perfectly. Sometimes, they even fuse them together so it’s all-in-one.
This is totally up to you. Personally, I like the idea of having a separate engagement ring and wedding band. Not that I really ever take them off (I’m one of those people who put it on at my ceremony and I can count the number of times on one hand that I’ve taken it off; where I go, it goes!)
But if I were to go on some luxury vacation or scuba dive or head to the gym or what have you, it is nice to know I could take off my engagement ring and leave on the band.
Some people even fuse them together to stop them from spinning (to which I say, THIS is a better solution imo!)
In addition to fusing them together, some couples order both the engagement ring and wedding band at the same time. This means your soon-to-be spouse — the person proposing — has to guess not only what kind of engagement ring you want, but also the wedding band. That’s a lot of decision making. So, decide on it together first or pick out your wedding ring separately. You could always buy the ring from the same place he/she bought the engagement ring later, so don’t worry about it too much all at one time.
Anyways, let’s get to it already: here are some beautiful wedding bands for women to help you pick one you’ll love.
