Now that you're engaged, your calendar is full of wedding plans, from dress shopping and venue visits to cake tastings and dance lessons. But once you've tackled some of the bigger items on your checklist, it's time to turn your attention to some of the smaller (but perhaps even more important) tasks, like shopping for your wedding band.

Beyond your engagement ring, your wedding band is the one piece of jewelry you will wear every day, and for the rest of your life. So you want to make sure you find one that you'll love forever.

If you're stumped on how to begin searching for "the one," here are seven helpful tips to picking the perfect wedding band.

Buy the Pair

The easiest way to guarantee that your engagement ring and your wedding band will be a perfect pair is to buy the set. Take a trip back to the store where your fiancé purchased your sparkler and ask if it has a mate.

To put your diamond front and center, choose a tapered wedding band, which will cradle your engagement ring.

For some added pizzazz, go for a three-ring stack. Pair your engagement ring with a traditional metal band, plus a style with some sparkle.

Select Similar Stone Shapes

Use the center stone of your engagement ring to inspire your wedding-band choice. If your engagement ring features an emerald-cut center stone or a round brilliant diamond, choose a band featuring diamonds in a similar style.

Consider Color

If you want to create your own pair but are looking for a more unique look, incorporate a band with round brilliant colored stones like blue or pink sapphires.

Go for a Stand-Alone Stunner

If you're planning to switch your engagement ring over to your right hand after you tie the knot, consider a statement wedding band rather than one that coordinates with your other piece of bridal bling.

Coordinate with Your Fiancé

Matching your fiancé's ring choice is a mini exercise in compromise. You can get the same ring in matching metals, add a special engraving inside the bands, or choose a design detail that keeps the two rings in tandem.
