Carefully consider different styles, textures and colors to determine what ring you’d like to be your wedding band. And, don’t sweat it if you like multiple. With silicone rings, you can have a variety to wear for special occasions or to match your outfit of the day. That doesn’t make your wedding band any less special, though. Marriage is about commitment, and while a wedding band is the physical manifestation of that, it’s also a piece of jewelry. What matters most is that you stay committed to your spouse, and whether or not you’re wearing the same band as you wore yesterday doesn’t define that. \n\nConsider a Stackable Band\nA stackable wedding band is one that you can wear with others but doesn’t look disjointed. Stackable bands are meant to stack upon one another. For those who aren’t sure how to wear engagement ring and wedding bands, stackable rings are a perfect option. This is ideal for your honeymoon or when traveling. \nSee What Silicone Wedding Bands We Offer\n\n\nPro tip: Diamond rings can be dangerous to wear while traveling. Thieves and other criminals will see a diamond ring and use that to choose their next victim. Even if you keep your diamond ring in the hotel room safe, there’s always a chance it could get stolen. A set of stackable rings is perfect to wear while traveling internationally — or even to a new place in your home country — because it can be the difference between keeping your diamond ring and losing it forever.\n\nMake Sure It Fits\nWedding bands come in all sizes and textures. Take a look at your engagement ring. How thick is the band? Would you prefer something thicker, giving off a more retro vibe, or would you prefer something thinner and more delicate? The thickness of your wedding band will actually determine how it fits on your finger, so knowing what style you’d like prior to ordering your band will go a long way to ensure you choose the right one. Use a ring size chart to make sure you order the correct size, and remember that your wedding band will go at the base of your finger. It’ll need to be big enough to fit over your knuckle, but small enough that you can ensure it won’t slip off while resting on the base of your finger.\n\nAsk Your Partner to Pick It for You\nMarriage is about trust and commitment, right? What better way to show that you trust your partner than by asking them to pick out your wedding band? It allows your partner to really dig deep into what they think you’d like. Sure, they probably picked out your engagement ring, but why not have them pick out your wedding band, too? And, alternatively, you can choose theirs. This way, you can still choose a band but the pressure to choose your own is off the table. Sometimes, it’s easier for us to pick out things for other people than it is for us to pick out things for ourselves. No matter what you pick, your partner is sure to love it — mainly because they get to wear it and think of their marriage to you!
