We have 1/2 a check on wedding bands right now. We just put down a deposit for Eric's to get made, but I am still at a complete loss as to what I want. I think the wedding band is one of Eric's favorite part of the whole wedding/marriage. I broke down and gave the OK to a ring that is definitely not within our price range. His argument: I will be wearing it every day for the rest of my life, shouldn't I love it? How could I say no? His ring is being custom made, so this is not what it will look like exactly, but it will be the same style. The style is known as Mokume Gane and one of the translations is "wood grain." Eric loves the way it looks, but I also think he likes to tell people that it is made the same way that Japanese samurai swords are.
