Did any of you wear your e-ring at your ceremony? The advice given to me was to wear it on my right hand sitting the ceremony so that my left hand would be free for the ring exchange. Only problem is that my ring finger on my right hand is at least half a size larger than my left hand and it doesn’t fit! I’m too scared to take the ring off completely though for fear of losing it. Can I just wear it during the ceremony and have my FI put the wedding band on that finger as well or is that weird?

During the ceremony, not sitting…. I can’t edit that for some reason.

I saw this posted on a wedding FB group I belong to:
After the exchange of rings the celebrant said:
<div data-reactid=”.hl.$mid=11403994826506=28479ebbe303afef658.2:0.0.0.0″>The engagement ring is a symbol of promise & intention. Now the intention is realised and the promise fulfilled. Please place your engagement ring on [BRIDE’S] finger over her wedding band to symbolize that the love that brought you together will always protect and sustain your marriage.</div>

Kbridal: I did the right hand thing. You can do whatever you want, so long as you’re comfortable. The reason I didn’t want to wear mine on my left ring finger was because I like the idea of the traditional order of the rings (wedding band closest to your heart) and didn’t like the idea of taking off the wedding band my new husband had just put on my finger during the ceremony, just to switch them around straight after! In some ways I know that seems a bit silly, but it’s really just personal preference.
If it doesn’t fit on your right hand, you could tuck it into your bra or on a necklace if you wanted it close to you, or just go ahead and wear it on the left like normal 🙂

Kbridal: I agree with PP. I plan to wear my engaagement ring on my right hand and than once my wedding band is on my finger, I will switch it over. I don’t wanna take off the wedding band either and I was always taught that the wedding band is closest to the heart so that is my plan!

We had a ring warming, so my engagement ring and wedding ring were both a part of that. My husband took both off the basket and placed them together on my finger. I’d meant to wear my e-ring and just have my wedding ring warmed, but now I love the pictures of both of them hanging on the tree . . . If you don’t want to wear your e-ring then perhaps use both in the ceremony?

I wore mine because I forgot to take it off. I did mean to remove it, and even planned to hand it to my sister, but completely forgot.

I wore mine on my right hand, as many have said. Does it fit on another finger on your right hand, rather than your ring finger?

Kbridal: My e-ring and wedding band will be sautered together by then, so they’ll go on simultaneously. I have 2 engagement rings, one is half of the ring I proposed to FI with. I’ll wear that one between getting it sautered and the ceremony. The other is FMIL’s wedding set that FI gave me a few months after we got engaged. My band will be sautered to her set and that’s what we’ll use for the ring exchange.
