This post was originally published in February 2015.

First comes love, then comes marriage. That's the standard sequence of events in everyone's favorite playground song — likely the result of some steamy k-i-s-s-i-n-g in a certain tree. For grown-ups taking their romantic relationship to the next level, it's first comes engagement ring, then comes wedding band. Then, hopefully, happily ever after.

In contrast, wedding bands can often feel like something of an afterthought. But, the way we see it, any piece of jewelry you're committing to wear on your big day (and every day) should befit your personal style. You want to be sure you'll be looking down at a ring you actually love wearing. To provide you with some inspiration, we gathered 26 gorgeous bands to shop in this slideshow — click ahead and prepare to fall in love.
