The Groom’s Guide to Modern Wedding Bands

Grooms usually put a lot of care and thought into choosing an engagement ring for their bride-to-be. Now that it is time to choose their own, some grooms may find themselves at a loss. Choosing the right wedding ring can be a challenge. For modern grooms, there are a lot of options out in the market—from carbon fiber rings to wooden bands. 


More and more grooms are taking part in wedding planning, helping choose the different elements that go into it a couple’s special day. When choosing wedding bands, some grooms opt for the classic gold wedding band while others veer towards unique and adventurous styles.

One way to update wedding band styles is to use unique metals and finishes. Tungsten, oxidized bronze, and carbon rings are in fashion for modern grooms. Matte and brushed finish are style elements that more grooms are starting to favor. When choosing the best style for modern wedding bands it is important to account for the individuality and personality of the groom to find a ring that he will enjoy forever.

Matching the bride

While having identical rings is very traditional, couples choosing rings that are not exact duplicates, but are complementary to one another. Besides, isn’t that what great love stories are all about? Whether it is choosing a matte finished metal to complement her shiny ring or wearing a carbon fiber ring to balance her white gold, complimentary is a fashion option that modern grooms enjoy.

When it comes to weddings, it is all about the details. Brides in general spend a lot of time painstakingly making sure that every detail is perfect. Grooms can be all about the details too! Adding gemstones, patterns, and other accents are some of the elements that can make a wedding band unique. Adding inscriptions and engraving are romantic ways of expression that enable grooms to add a personalized style to a timeless classic.


There are so many options now when it comes to wedding bands. With this comes a wider price range to accommodate every type of groom. Grooms who are looking for rings on the more expensive side can easily find ones available for $5000 to $10000 (with an option to go even higher). Grooms who are looking for something special but more economical can find rings for much less. One of the least expensive options is a carbon fiber ring. They generally go for $125 to $1000. These rings are just as stylish and elegant as their pricier counterparts.

Choosing the right ring

Grooms can choose wedding rings in all shapes, sizes, styles and price range. Choosing the right wedding ring is all about expressing personality and choosing the style that you will enjoy forever. It is also important for grooms to discuss budgets with their partner to determine the flexibility can afford when choosing the right one.
