Most of us live rather modest lives where we try to go all-out when it comes to purchasing big-ticket items like engagement rings and wedding bands. Really, it’s something you should theoretically be wearing for the rest of your lives (or at least the rest of your marriage, whichever ends first). Sure, one could potentially buy nicer replacements further on down the line, but usually those are some pretty huge purchases all in the name of love.
Celebrities obviously have more disposable income for this kind of stuff and this is sort of an age where the rich and famous showing off their bling via Instagram and other social media isn’t uncommon, yet Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher did the exact opposite, Mila told Conan O’Brien. Did Ashton and Mila go to Jared for their ultra-thin titanium wedding bands? Nah, they browsed Etsy and picked the two bands up for just under $200.
That is not a typo, two famous, successful actors spent both $90 and $100, respectively, on their wedding bands. So for all of you out there that have an impending wedding and are starting to fret over the mounting costs (and boy do they add up quickly), be more like Mila and Ashton: just find something cheap on Etsy and instead of focusing on those material things just love each other. What a message, right?
