When getting married, there is a lot of focus on the engagement ring for the women. The wedding band for the bride and groom are often secondary considerations. The bride generally chooses a wedding band that complements the engagement ring.

But, what about the groom’s wedding band?

How much should the groom spend? Does the ring have to match the brides? What are the different types of metals that are best for men’s wedding bands?

These are the most frequently asked questions we get about men’s wedding rings, and here are some of our answers.

Does the groom’s wedding band need to match the brides?

It used to be more common that wedding bands matched. However, many modern couples are choosing to take the non-traditional route by choosing different wedding bands.

Non-matching wedding bands allow both people to express their individuality and own unique styles. It allows both people to choose wedding bands that they love rather than settling for one that doesn't fit your personality.

If you would prefer to have a matching wedding band set, a great option can be a wedding trio set, which is designed from the start as a matching set.

How much should a couple spend on a wedding band?

A man’s wedding band will typically cost anywhere from $400 (Gold) to $2,000 (Gold with Diamonds). It seems that the average price for a groom’s wedding band is about $699.

Who pays for the groom’s wedding band?

This one is really up to personal preference. Generally a couple shops for wedding bands together. This means that often they will pay for them together, or even buy each other's wedding band as a gift. How to deal with the cost of the wedding bands is really up to each couple to decide.

What are the best metals for men’s wedding bands?

Men’s wedding rings are like any other piece of wedding jewelry, they come in a lot of varieties. The most common metal types are:

White gold
Rose gold
Yellow gold

The two most common metals chosen for men’s wedding bands are white gold and yellow gold. Keep in mind that different metals and stones can have different meanings and cultural values, so these can also be worth considering as a part of the purchasing process.
