A wedding band is a statement of one’s commitment to their spouse, which makes it a very intimate item. There are many things to take into consideration when choosing a wedding band that will symbolize your union with each other. Since this ring is worn every day, most people want something that they like and can wear comfortably. Additionally, because it is so personal, most wedding bands are customized for the couple in some way or another.
It seems like there are tons of gorgeous styles for women’s wedding bands, but men actually have plenty of options, too! Custom wedding bands are a way for men to personalize their ring to suit their needs and style, and that’s why men love them!
Here are some details men can consider to get a ring they really love:
Does your groom have a strong heart of titanium or a sweet heart of gold? Is he a jeans and flannel kind of guy or would he not be afraid to rock a bit of bling? Is he able to wear jewelry or can he only wear it on special occasions? A major factor that goes into a man’s choice of his wedding band is his own personal taste and style, as well as his needs. Wedding bands come in a variety of metals—gold, white gold, platinum, silver, and titanium—and custom bands offer endless options with styles and even stones to consider. If your man works with his hands, he may want to customize his ring with a stronger metal such as platinum or tungsten. If he’s into fashion, he may want to use multiple metals to match any look!
Is your man a die-hard sports fan? A hunter? Musician? Custom wedding bands can be styled to include all of these interests in the metals and the design. Each of us has a unique personal style with things we love and take interest in, and a man’s custom wedding band can reflect this. A wedding band doesn’t have to be a plain band—many people choose to engrave the outside of the ring with patterns, but words and designs can also be added to reflect what really makes him special!
The wedding rings celebrate the union of the couple, so some couples choose rings based on mutual interests, rather than individual ones. This is especially true if the interest has something to do with how they met or fell in love. Whether it’s the city you met in, or a shared hobby that brought you together, you can combine your interests in your ring to show your personality and passion for each other. Some couples might even include multiple interests in their wedding bands—for example, a custom design on the outside with a personal engraving on the inside.
Some people are deeply rooted in their families, heritage, and tradition. This might come from devotion to religion, a love for history and ancestry, or just simply honoring family traditions dating back generations. Custom bands can be made to match a family heirloom worn by your partner, such as a parent’s or grandparent’s wedding band. They can honor ancestry with engravings that honor his culture. Religious grooms can also have symbols or blessings from their religion engraved into their wedding band.
With many proud police officers, firefighters, and military personnel protecting our country, couples might choose to honor that with a custom wedding band celebrating their service. Academics might incorporate their school’s mascot or emblem into their wedding band, and athletes might do the same with their team’s logo. Other people work for jobs that have universal symbols: doctors have the two snakes entwining the rod, people working in government or law might want scales, and truck drivers may want a tire tread pattern on their wedding band.
With so many options to customize wedding bands, couples are sure to find rings they will love and treasure. Celebrating your commitment to your spouse has never been so easy and intimate!
