I see that women wear their wedding band with the engagement ring stacked above it (if you are looking down at your hand). Is this because you normally do not wear the engagement ring during the ceremony? I’d love to know what past brides have done and why. Thanks!

Arodef: I am going to be wearing my engagement ring on my right hand until after the ceremony. Then I’ll switch it to my left hand from that point on

I’m curious too. I’m thinking about wearing mine on my right hand or not at all for the ceremony.

I wore it on my left hand and then after the ceremony, I switched to so my wedding band was on the inside of my engagement ring.

my rings were soldered together before my wedding, so i didn’t wear anything until my husband put them both on my finger during the ceremony.

It’s traditional to wear your wedding band underneath your engagement ring so that it’s closer to your heart. I had a friend I trust wear mine during the ceremony and got it back from her afterwards. I would have worn it on my right hand, but it doesn’t fit! My fingers on my right hand are a full size larger than the ones on my left hand.

Yeah I also wore mine on my right hand and then switched it over right afterwards. You can also have one of your bridesmaids or family members hold onto it.

I wore mine on my right hand. I extended my left hand during tge ceremony. DH got confused and grabbed my right hand and told me it went with my engagement ring. So if you do the right hand route, be sure to tell your FI!

I meant to wear mine on the right hand, but totally forgot! He very smoothly took it off, then put on my wedding band and then the engagement ring after. I was completely happy with how it turned out.

I didn’t wear mine, but only because we weren’t able to find a matching band for it. We ended up getting a thicker gold band, which wouldn’t go with my ERing.
If I had had a matching band for it, I would have worn my ERing on my left hand and had DH put the band on over it (so that ERing was closer to my palm). Then, I would have switched it around later, after the ceremony. My finger size varies too much from left hand to right, which makes it impossible for me to switch my rings around that easily.

I planned on wearing mine on my right during the ceremony but my right hand finers are completely different from my life so I guess I will not be doing that. I am going to have my maid of honor hold onto my ring until after the ceremony
