If you’ve been given a stunning engagement ring and are planning to get hitched, you’ll need to choose your wedding band. This can be a tough choice as you’ll wear your wedding ring every day for the rest of your life.

Georgina Way, student liason officer at the Wedding Planner School, suggested going for nine carat gold or a harder metal like platinum to prevent it wearing out before the end of your life. She also advised: “A wedding ring should complement the engagement ring and look good together.

“When trying out rings, always try it on with your engagement ring, never alone.”

When choosing what size wedding band to select, Ms Way suggests making it slightly tighter than your engagement ring to avoid slippage.

One couple that could soon be on the hunt for a wedding band are Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

The English actor was seen looking in jewellery stores in west Hollywood with his American beau yesterday (July 5th) with rumours emerging that the ‘Twilight’ actors are planning an engagement.
