size of the wedding band?

Hi ladies! I'm wondering a bit about wedding band ring sizing. FI bought me a matching band in the same size as my e-ring. I love it and it fits perfectly by itself, but when I wear it together with my e-ring it feels tighter than I would expect. I know this is just because the two rings together are wider than either one alone, so of course they will feel a bit tighter. So my question is, it this normal? Do most people order their wedding band to be slightly larger than their e-ring? Or do you eventually just get used to them being tighter when you wear them together? I'm trying to decide if I should get it sized up before the wedding. Thanks!

    I noticed the same thing so I went to the jewelry store to try on a half size larger ring to see the difference.  The larger size kept sliding all around so I went with the original size and now it feels normal.

    Go to the jewelry store and try on a ring that's half a size larger with your e-ring and see how it feels.

    Take them both in to the jewerly store where he bought them and get fitted. Ask them what they think.

    My e-ring and band happen to be the same size, but I am sure not all women are the same. For me, I can definitely tell when it is more humid out or if it is close to the time of the month.

    If you are getting them saudered together, I imagine they would need to be the same size. If you are leaving them seperate or plan on wearing just the band, then I would think that having them different sizes wouldn't matter. But definitely get the jewerly stores recommendation.

    When we bought my wedding band the jeweler told us that when the e-ring and wedding band are worn together it will feel tighter.  My e-ring is looser than I would like, but not big enough to go down to a smaller size, so when wearing it with the band it is perfect.

    Thank you for all of the advice! This is all very helpful, and it's at least reassuring to know that it is a normal occurrence. 

    On a totally unrelated note: MissySue, my FI is an Ohio State Football FANATIC! I am marring into a family of crazy OSU fans...and I'm totally ok with it:) We might actually be at the OSU-Michigan game this year!
