Along with the excitement and euphoria of getting married, there are also a whole load of decisions to be made. Many are about the actual Wedding day – cake, guests, napkins, welcome drinks, and so much more. Others are about the honeymoon. But choosing your Wedding ring is a decision that will stay with you for the rest of your married life, hopefully forever. And what a unique decision it is to make.
Choosing your Wedding band can feel a little overwhelming, especially when there are so many men’s Wedding rings to choose from. I have put this article together to help you get started.
Gold is the traditional choice for a men’s wedding band, but you can also choose a ring made from palladium, platinum, silver, titanium, tungsten and in recent years, silicone.
Metals such as these can be seen to symbolise the permanence of the marriage. Like the marriage, such metals are highly durable and long lasting. Although clearly not a metal, the same can be said of silicone.
Gold – Beautiful, gorgeous, and glimmering, a gold Wedding band for a man will certainly look the part. Men who enjoy an active lifestyle should be aware that gold rings tend to scratch and can become out of shape over time.

Silver – A practical and affordable choice for a men’s Wedding band. There are a wide range of silver rings available, but you should be aware that silver tarnishes over time. Being a soft metal like gold,
it can also be prone to scratching and becoming out of shape.
