Finding the Right Wedding Band for Your Man

So, you said yes to the ring, but will he say yes to his? You might be surprised at the many styles, shapes, colors, and materials there for your man’s wedding ring. It can be overwhelming, but we’ve got just the guide for you to help you find the right band for your man.

The Romantic

If he buys you roses on a monthly basis, leaves sweet notes for you on your snow-covered windshield, and calls you his “soulmate,” then your guy is probably a romantic. Not only should you consider yourself lucky, but also you should consider that his wedding band might mean as much to him as yours means to you.

For this special type of man, you’ll want to find something in gold, silver, or platinum – all of which are sturdy materials with more charm than materials such steel, titanium, or tungsten.

Once you choose your metal, you have to choose a style. There are many styles that would appeal to an enchanting man like yours; we recommend a court shape or a D-shape with a thinner band. Both of which have rounded outside edges that give it a much more romantic look.

Last of all, you’ll want to consider some sort of gem to set right in the center of the band or perhaps a lovey-dovey engraving on the inside. Remember, keep it elegant, but simple for those romantic boys.

The Adventurer

Whether he is scaling a jagged cliff, kayaking down precarious rapids, or surfing in the Pacific, your suitor is definitely an adventurer. It’s time to think outside the box with this one.

You don’t want something made of metal, even if it happens to be a tough metal like tungsten. You’ll want something that will suit his adventurous lifestyle. That means it needs to be comfortable, flexible, and accommodating. With all that in mind, there’s only one way to go for this guy – silicone.

Silicone bands are becoming a much more popular choice nowadays for men’s wedding bands. They can definitely provide a more casual, masculine look, but they are also a lighter and cheaper option, which is great if your groom also tends to lose things. Silicone bands are meant for an active lifestyle and are meant to protect his fingers through all his wild journeys. These can be purchased online or at your local sporting goods store.

The Sc-Fi Superhero Guy

He may be your own personal protector or just a comic book enthusiast. Either way, the superhero look is a fun alternative to the traditional men’s wedding band. Believe it or not, there are many online shops that sell Batman rings, Superman rings, or Spiderman rings.If comic book characters aren’t really his thing, there are always “Star Wars” character rings or “Lord of the Rings” replicas.

A simple online search can steer you in the right direction for finding the perfect engraving for this kind of guy. Don’t hesitate to be a little silly; it’s okay to think outside of the box.

The Tough Guy

No need to describe this kind of man any further, but let’s just say he is quite the opposite of the romantic. A narrow, rounded ring is not a good choice for this macho man. He is going to need something far sturdier and more masculine.

Titanium, tungsten, and steel are the materials that would suit your groom in this case. He needs something with a thicker, wider band that will match his unyielding personality. Generally speaking, tungsten is a great way to go no matter what the shape, style, or color. Though, all these materials are meant to last and give off a macho vibe.

The Naturalist

If your man is all about recycling, green peace, and protecting the environment, then your future groom is a naturalist. Considering he is eco-friendly, he will need a wedding band that is eco-friendly too. Rings made entirely of wood are a great alternative for the metal rings that we are all used to.

There are several websites that provide these types of rings. They are hand-engraved, come in a variety of styles, and are lightweight. And even better, because no tree is the same, no two wooden wedding bands will ever be the same either, suggesting to your man that he is truly one-of-a-kind. These rings are entirely recyclable and pleasing to the environment. He will not be disappointed.

The ‘Not-a-Ring-Wearer’ Guy

If you plan on marrying a man who swears he will never wear his wedding band, whether he is uncomfortable wearing one or he knows he will lose it, there is an option for him as well. One trend that is growing more and more popular is having your wedding band actually tattooed right onto your ring finger. It is a fun alternative to escaping the burden of wearing the ring each day and the worry of keeping track of it. It is also a romantic notion to have your ring permanently inked on your finger, symbolizing your eternal love.

Of course, the designs and styles are endless. Find any design, word, or phrase that means something to the both of you and you’re ready to start the process. Make sure you find a tattoo parlor you can trust; they are forever after all.

Final Thoughts

As we all know, every man is unique. After all, those special qualities that only he has made you fall in love with him in the first place. So, take the extra time to find the perfect ring that will match his personality and his lifestyle. Your groom deserves to know how much you care about him; his wedding band is perfect place to start.
