Wedding bands have been traditionally part of the ceremony. It does not necessarily have to be made of gold but you can choose gold wedding bands from here if you are looking for option you cannot find locally. The good thing about finding them online is that you have more options to choose from. Some even go for untraditional wedding metals like tungsten, titanium, cobalt or ceramic. Just be extra careful of the stores you shop from. If you can, ask around how is their experience with the particular shop you are surfing. Make sure you can contact them offline by phone or by going to the actual shop, if needed. Not that you would if you are across the globe but at least the info is available.
