Truly stuck on a choice between platinum or gold wedding band. I don't typically wear gold, but a gold band will match my fiancé's band, and I do like that a gold band is more traditional. On the other hand, all of my watches and other accessories are silver or stainless steel, so this leads me to want a platinum band to match the color of those. What do you guys think?

My watch is stainless and my wedding band is gold, but then I do also have a gold watch or two. Some things are more important than metal matching and this just happens to be one of them! ;)

I agree with fellow eagle and distinguished gentleman from Florida.
Gold is the most precious metal. So should be your marriage.

Mine is a 5mm wide 14k yellow gold band with no designs/etchings/etc. I wear a mix of yellow gold, rose gold, and silver, and though I try to match all my other accessories (silver belt buckle/watch/cufflinks, gold watch and belt buckle, etc), my ring not matching doesn't bother me.

that said, my college ring is also 14k yellow gold, so it helps that those match I guess

Mine is a plain 14K yellow gold band and is surplus to my needs, but does set off my box of souvenirs.

Even the most hardcore of metal matchers usually grant dispensations for wedding rings. Don't let that be an impediment to making a choice.

LOL. My college class ring is also gold hued, but generally sits on display in a cherry wood and glass display case and has done so for quite some time. The last time it was worn was to watch my Alma mater, Penn State, lose last years Rose Bowl game. :(
