Wedding Rings: Yay or Nay?

My fiance and I are getting married in about six months. He's been bringing up the fact that he needs to go wedding ring shopping for me soon. I've been thinking about it and I don't think I actually want a wedding ring. I think the engagement ring he got me is enough. We're not having a traditional wedding and having another ring really doesn't mean much to me. I'd rather he save his money in case something important comes up or put it into updating our new house.

I'm just curious: has anyone else decided against using a wedding ring? If so, for what reason?

That is totally up to you, I had a wedding ring and engagement ring because they were bought as a set. I would suggest you talking to your fiance an let him know that right now you are satisfied with your engagement ring and that you have no problem with it becoming your "wedding ring" You can always upgrade later down the road.

I have a wedding ring--but a bit different.

My ring has sapphires and diamonds flush with the band, it was originally my second engagement ring--the one he got me first was not as well made and broke (my heart, too!!), so he got this one for me and it is perfect as a wedding band. However--for our 20th year, he is going to add another band the same....so??

I say yay. When my wife proposed, she gave me a white gold engagement ring with three tanzanite gemstones, representing our past, present and future, surrounded by little diamonds. I love that ring so much that I've kept it as my wedding ring! As for Jen, I got her The One Ring. ^_^ We're both geeky like that! I hope to one day give her a ring from Brilliant Earth, which has very dainty elven looking rings.

While not getting married, I never saw the point in the ring other than to announce you were taken. If that's the only reasoning behind the ring, any cheap ring should do. If a ring isn't wanted, but the sentiment of being off the market is, try a tattoo or something for the ring finger. Maybe the word "taken". If the "taken" sentiment isn't desired, then anything that symbolizes your love should work.

My fingers swell and my ring size changes often, so I can't see a point for me to have a ring either. Though, I do have one. I wanted to do tattoos. He didn't want to. When we can afford something nice, I think I am going with a ring on a necklace.

It's totally up to you. A ring is a pointless piece of jewelry that jewelers know they can guilt people into spending a ton of money on. If you're comfortable without one, then there's no reason you need one.

Its up to you. I'm also content with my engagement ring, which was my mom's original wedding ring. My future MIL gave me a white gold ring with a large emerald in it when I got engaged. It's a family ring and my fiance's birth stone. I'm really thinking I want to combine the two rings into one to create a custom ring if I do use a different wedding ring.

I don't see it as necessary, but I like the symbolism, so I plan to get some when I get married

I think that is a cute idea. I have seen a few people who choose to get matching tattoos rather than wear a ring. If only he could decide if he really wants a tattoo or not! He's been thinking about it for 2-3 years now.
