Wedding Bands for Bridegrooms

wedding bands for men

Today I’ve got the experts in to talk about trends in male wedding rings. Is your fiancé unsure about what will suit him best? Take advantage of our brilliant guide to the different metals and styles!

Popular new metals have made their debut, and men are stepping forward to voice their own preferences. Men generally are displaying a preference for platinum over gold, cobalt over silver and other hard metals like tungsten and titanium over the softer metals.

Overall, they prefer simpler styling and comfortable-fitting rings. The wider the band, the tighter the fit, so grooms are deciding on more narrow bands that feel a bit heavier with a looser fit. Perhaps the best indicator that your man would be safe wearing the softer metal options is if he normally wears a wrist watch.

If so, we can assume that his line of work does not make heavy physical demands on his arms and hands. In this case he could wear gold, silver or platinum without constantly fearing damaging or losing his ring.

Wedding planners beware! Brides are more likely to allow their future husbands decision power in several areas of wedding planning. Men are typically more involved and aware, than in past generations. First came the changes in the apartments and modern home decor with preferences for industrial-looking materials.

More masculine, sleek and casual stainless steel appliances with re-purposed wood, metal on ceilings and feature walls. This trend has evolved into the fashion and jewelry industry as well.

New Trends are Possibly Taking a Right Turn.

Brides and grooms of this era are, on average, more mature and beyond their mid-twenties. They will be more likely to pay for their own weddings and are mindful of the market just coming out of an economic downturn.

Many couples will be budget-wise, spending less on the ceremony and wedding reception. They’ll use more of their budgets for time-off from work to seek a much needed restorative vacation and fun-filled honeymoon. Perhaps preparing for their next life-phase, parenthood!
