Wedding rings, first look

To continue recapping my weekend.... On Saturday we checked out some wedding bands. As usual, fiance had no opinions about what we should get but had plenty of wisecracks about how having a tattoo would be easier or if he went and got a hexnut from Home Depot it'd make no difference to him. I'm sure the jeweler, whose profession was being mocked, was not amused. Neither was I b/c I have no idea what I want either. I can't decide whether to get one with a row of little diamonds or to just get a plain band. Some ppl tell me when you have kids you don't want to wear your e-ring b/c it gets in the way but you'd still like some diamonds so a wedding band with little diamonds would be ideal. However, I'm not crazy about the gap between the e-ring and the band when they're worn together. The jeweler did say that she could make one with a notch in it so that it fits together but of course you can't wear that alone b/c it'd look weird. And I am a kinda plain girl, so I don't mind the plain band but diamonds are pretty....

Two that I saw that I liked: a plain band with two lines etched into it near the top and bottom edges, and a thin band with a row of very little diamonds on the front (not all around). We were in a bit of a rush so I didn't get to follow up with more questions or browsing so we'll have to pay another visit, hopefully when I have a better idea. I'd have to say, though, that when I put on the bands with the e-ring, even though they may not have matched and probably were not the right size, I felt like they fit and things felt complete. Weird, corny and probably silly, but so be it.

I was also thinking of getting a set of pearls to go with the white dress for a classic look but not sure if she carries them.

I was @ the jewellers w/ my bf today and looking @ wedding bands and e-rings. I agree those special made ones to fit in w/ your e-ring look nice,but alone look absolutely weird.

plain adn simple way to go. maybe thin band w/ channel diamonds?
