Q: Who is responsible for purchasing the groom's wedding band?

A: If you are following the traditional chart of who pays for what, then the bride pays for the groom's wedding ring and the groom pays for the bride's.

Some couples who are already sharing expenses for the wedding may decide to put both rings on a joint credit card. Or one set of parents may want to buy you your rings. In the long run it doesn't really matter who actually pays, as long as each of you selects a style that you love.
