    Hey y'all!
    Once I order my flowers on Monday we will have everything done and/or ordered for the wedding - four months ahead of time! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    One other thing we do need is a wedding band for SO/fiance'/old man.
    The one he likes comes in either titanium or stainless steel. It has to be comfortable and suitable for every day wear given his job. He doesn't want gold or white gold, like my engagement ring.
    Do either titanium or stainless steel turn your finger green? I'm noticing a trend towards those two metals in the men's rings especially but I'm not all that familiar with their characteristics.

    My husband has a gold band but prefers to wear his stainless steel band on a daily basis. He likes it better [​IMG] Oh and no green fingers, but that really depends on the wearer sometimes. White gold turns my finger green and yellow doesn't the alloys in the metal affect people differently. I love the look and cost of either, especially the ones with a brushed finish.

    KAT!!!!! My fiance is allergic to MOST metals and we have chosen the titanium one, mainly because of the non-allergenic properties, BUT, I met a checker that grocery store that had one and he said he has had it for 5 years and never cleaned it and it is still as shiny as new - beautiful too. They have a gorgeous sheen to them that makes them stand out. That checker help us make up our mind!

    Thanks y'all. That's exactly what I needed to know. [​IMG]
    Actually I'm thinking about getting a band to match his. I dearly love my diamond ring, but it's not suitable for working around the farm. I find myself taking it off all the time because I'm afraid of damaging it or losing a stone when I'm working outside. If I do get one like his I'll keep my diamond ring for special occasions and going out, etc.

    My hubby has a titanium band (and I think it was called comfort fit...more rounded edges?) he loves his....basic, but strong... [​IMG]

    I've heard that the main drawback of titanium is that they can't be sized. The flip side is that they're relatively inexpensive.

    Titanium is good....just make sure he takes it off when he should . You can't cut through it (so I've heard ) . Major drawback if you ask me . If he gains weight or his finger swells...you're sol .[​IMG]

    most of the guys in the constrution unions waer them, I guess because it is stronger, My LDH wore one. It might just be the thing to do and serve no really good purpose, I dont really know...
