My e-ring on its own is so comfortable. It’s a really narrow band and perfectly sized, so I hardly even feel it on my finger. But with the matching band next to it, I guess with the added width, my poor finger feels like it’s losing circulation!
It was so uncomfortably tight that I had to take the rings off and put them on my pinky finger during our flight back from NY. Then I nearly lost my wedding band in the seat on the airplane, so back on the ring finger they went! After we got home, I ditched the wedding band and I’ve been back to wearing just my e-ring for the past few days.
Did anyone have to get their rings resized after getting married? Do I resize both, or just one of them? Or should I keep wearing both rings and get used to it?

I don’t have a wedding band yet. Did you eat anything salty over the weekend?

I would talk to your jeweler about it. Is the wedding band too tight when you wear it alone? It seems strange that just wearing them together would be so painful, unless it is a wrap or ring guard. I might get the wedding band resized, because if it is uncomfortable in December, it’s going to be really uncomfortable come summer.
PS- I just saw you’ve only been married a few days, congrats!

When we bought our bands, the lady at the jeweler told me to get the band a 1/2 size bigger than the e-ring because they would likely fit a little more snug. She was right, and I know I would have had the same problem as you if I didn’t do it. I’d resize your band, but talk to the jeweler about your issue first and they’ll know if you need to resize both and how much.

Meet with your jeweler and work with them to size them correctly. They will be able to help you decide if you need to resize both or just one ring. You probably only need to go up a 1/4 of a size on both to have them fit comfortably! 🙂

Take them to your jeweler and have them resized a 1/4 size up. That should do the trick. It’s not unusual for rings to feel too tight once they are worn together, because a wider band required a slightly larger size to fit comfortably.

Thanks for the advice, ladies! I’m hoping I can resize just the band because I don’t want to be without my e-ring, lol! Is it bad that I don’t care about my wedding band as much as my e-ring?

Not married yet but FH bought my engagement and wedding ring at the same time. I know its kinda psycho but when he’s not around I’ll wear the band too I noticed the same thing, it gets soooo tight! I wonder if I should say something now about it or wait until the wedding… glad you posted this!

@MrsPinkPeony: Say something now! When hubby and I first got our bands we tried them on at home with warm hands to make sure they fit. I made the mistake of not putting mine both on at once. I thought if one fit and they’re the same size, then duh they should both fit together. Now I see that was stupid.
Get your band sized now so that you won’t have to be like me and not be able to wear it right after the wedding 🙂

My wedding band is a wrap, and it is a little larger than my engagement ring. I was worried when we bought it, because the jeweler recommended leaving it the size it was, but it has worked out beautifully. My engagement ring fits in between both sides, and surprisingly it is very comfortable.
I also used to try on my wedding ring before we were married, and there were times when I actually forgot I had it on!! My husband did the same thing. He was so cute, he’d try it on every night and say “It still fits.” LOL

When we were shopping, our jeweler mentioned that wider bands sometimes need to be up to a half size larger! She actually mentioned that she’d had the same problems with her own anniversary ring, as the base of the band is much wider than her original narrow solitaire and wedding band.
Go back to the jeweler and get it resized! If you’re going to be wearing it so often, it should be comfortable. Also, the same jeweler told us that getting the engagement ring and the wedding band soldered together can help keep the rings sitting nicely upright on your finger, as you may have found that top heavy engagement rings tend to spin around on your finger and have the stone facing your palm (ouch.)
