Who buys the groom's wedding band? Tradition tells us that both the bride and the groom are to buy each other’s wedding band, and while embracing tradition can be a good thing, modern times call for modern measures. This doesn’t always have to be the case. Relationships nowadays embrace complexity and are more understanding of different kinds of scenarios, whether it be regarding their finances or their dynamic as a couple.
Each couples' agreements on who purchases what may differ, but it should always, at the end of the day, start with open communication. One may want to purchase both wedding bands since the other had paid for the potentially more expensive engagement rings or wedding venue, or you both may want to contribute a percentage of both your salaries every month and use what you’ve both accumulated for the wedding bands! There’s no right or wrong way to go about how you want to pay for the rings, as long as you ensure that there is enough room for understanding from the both of you!
