* Wedding bands for the modern groom—All under $100
* Rings that won’t break the bank
* From the rugged outdoorsmen to the boujie sartorial 

It is becoming more and more common for men to wear fairly casual wedding bands in their everyday life. This is especially common for active guys who are prone to the outdoors and may find themselves scaling a mountainside or working on a construction site on any given day of the week. So, we garnered a handful of five different wedding bands including natural tungsten metal rings to flexible and durable silicone bands. You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a band either that you wear each day and if you are prone to losing things, these each are available for super reasonable prices and accommodate all styles and unique lifestyles.

1. Tungsten Brushed Band

Made from tungsten carbide, this brushed matte metal band is a classic choice for more understated men. Made with a high-polish inner face and available with a 6mm width, this is a subtle statement piece to wear on the special and every day after as it’s versatility lends itself for a range of looks.

2. Silicone Wedding Band in 10 Neutral Colorways

Silicone is in. Many athletes, gym rats and outdoor enthusiasts are opting out of silver and gold for their bands. Instead, try wearing these silicone designed bands as a wedding band alternative. And because it is a serious issue getting rings caught on machinery and random objects, these are the safest option to invest in. They lean towards a much more casual look but with 10 different colorways, you can easily find one that feels characteristically you.

3. Black Tungsten Band

This sleek black tungsten band is a polished ring that catches the eye. This is for the dapper gentlemen who prefers to make a statement with their fashion and this particular design would look amazing with a pair of all-black optical frames to be worn on the daily.

4. Gold-Plated & Black Tungsten Band

For a higher-end look, this striking band made from black tungsten is gold-plated in 18k rose gold and will up the ante for a more elevated look. It is a rather narrow design at only 4mm in width so it has a subdued yet impactful aesthetic.

5. Silicone Wedding Bands

Another collection of flexible silicone bands that come in neutral colorways for a very modest look. The sports-style band is ideal for someone who has an expensive wedding band that they keep for special occasions in the safe at home and want an everyday band for travel and work that signifies their status but isn’t a huge loss if it accidentally gets lost or stolen.
