The design of your wedding band should complement the overall aesthetic of your engagement ring. But shop with an open mind: A matching style works perfectly well, but you might also like a band that offers a little more "wow" factor. Or how about a comparatively radical option—a band that can be worn on its own, or on your right hand?
