Wedding Bands: Modern Simplicity
December 18, 2008 by Yelena Jenkins
In an industry that became completely extravagant and over-the-top, more and more couples are calling for a return to simplicity. What started in the 1980s with cupcake dresses, 20-inch bridal bouquets and poofy sleeved fuschia bridesmaid gowns is thankfully becoming subdued. In its place, a more modern wedding industry aesthetic is firmly taking hold. This trend is even evidenced in the most symbolic of wedding icons: wedding bands.
In lieu of flashy engagement rings, many brides are opting to save the money for a down payment and stick with a simple, modern band instead. Other brides are wearing their engagement rings up until the wedding, at which point they are switching the engagement ring with their wedding band instead of stacking the two together. The elimination of the traditional engagement ring has become even more prevalent with the current state of the economy. Money-conscious couples are often cash-strapped or feel guilty splashing out on expensive diamond engagement rings. The option they turn to provides an easy yet impactful way to save thousands of dollars.
Our modern, simple rings are ideal for couples who are looking for high quality, reasonably-priced wedding bands. More than ever, now is the perfect time to buy: with gold and platinum prices at their lowest in years, big savings are guaranteed. If you are just starting your search, make sure to take a peek at the following styles:
