I wore it, had my husband slide the wedding ring over it, and then I just switched it real quick before pictures.

From what I hear, you wear it on your right hand and then switch it over after the ceremony.

I’ve read that most people switch it to their right hand.  But, traditionally, you wear your wedding band first, then your e-ring.

Not sure if there’s a rule, but I wore mine on my right hand during the ceremony, and then moved it over to the left after.  The band is technically supposed to be first and “closest to the heart”.

Technically your wedding band is supposed to be “closest to your heart” as you mom said.  However, your Fiance could totally put the band on top when he slides it on during the ceremony and you could switch them afterwards.  That’s what I’m planning on doing because I hate not wearing my e-ring and feel naked without it on!

@CherryWaves:  This is what I did. Ring on the right hand, moved it over after the ceremony.

I wore my e-ring on my right hand and just switched it after the ceremony. I don’t know if there’s a “rule” about it though. But you are supposed to wear your wedding band first then e-ring on a regular basis.

I wore my ring on my left hand and Darling Husband put my wedding band on after it.  Then after the ceremony, I switched them for pictures!  I didn’t want to be completely ringless!  πŸ˜›

I also wore my ring on my left finger, and Darling Husband put the wedding band on.  I however, forgot to switch them for photos! πŸ˜›

mine won’t fit on my right hand I can’t get it past my knuckle. So I’m going to give it to my mom to hold before the ceremony, then put it back on afterwards.

@hotchildinthecity:  This is what I did.  Although I forgot to switch them prior to pictures…oh well.

I’ve seen brides wear the engagement ring on their right hand, too.  I guess it’s a personal preference.  For me, I didn’t want Darling Husband to be confused which finger the ring went on, so I kept the engagement ring on it’s “proper” finger πŸ™‚

I am actually odd for this one… I am planning on having my mum look after my e-ring for the ceremony BUT I will actually take off my wedding band after the ceremony and put it above my e-ring… They just look better e-ring at the bottom and wedding band on top πŸ™‚
